We just got back from this slice of paradise and ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! We made reservations on another hotel in Noumea. We got there checked in, and immediately checked out. We rang Escapade and they were happy to accommodate us. They set up a shuttle for us at 1030pm and set us up a room. We stayed one night in... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in an overwater bungalow and had an amazing time. The overwater bungalows are the only way to go, pay the extra to stay in these excellent rooms. They are very large (the bathrooms was HUGE) and being able to swim and snorkel off your own deck is fantastic. Very private and made for a very... More

We visited this island mid September 2014, I was armed with the previous reviews in mind, both good and bad and decided that I would make up my own mind. We travelled as a couple and stayed in the over water bungalow for 3 nights. The island itself is beautiful, the water clear and inviting. Wildlife all around, loads of... More

We stayed here in early August, and found the resort to be situated on a lovely, tranquil island just a short boat ride from Noumea. You should be aware, there is little to do on the island, other than the beaches/pool and water sports. However for us, it was ideal providing a peaceful 2day 1night break in the middle of... More

This place does not deserve the title of "resort"! There was little to do besides snorkelling and water craft (extra cost for water craft). The smorgasbord was below standard and was very close to the same every night. There is certainly not a chef cooking. The price of the food and drinks was exorbitant. We couldn't enjoy any of it...

So it was a special event, the birthday holiday for my girlfriend. I had informed the hotel that this was the case, and told them her name. There was no birthday cake, not happy birthday ----- on the nice gateaux, just some more daily macaroons! Considering this is part of France, where were the lovely cake that could have been... More

We expected everything to be expensive in New Caledonia, but the prices at this island "resort" were ridiculous! Breakfast was included in our "accommodation" cost, but if you had to pay, it would be 3500francs (more than A$40) per person. Lunch and dinner were both a buffet arrangement which cost 6500 francs per person (more than A$80 pp), except on... More

A short ride by motor launch/ferry is all it takes to get to this tropical paradise. When we first entered our overwater bungalow, the two of us stood with mouths agape facing the tranquil blue, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean that surrounds this coral atoll and laps beneath our home for just 3 nights. But before I tell you... More
