We really enjoyed our stay here and had 5 nights but we were also not disappointed when it was time to leave. For us there was upsides and downsides. The upsides were that the views from the overwater bungalows are simply sublime, especially at sunset as the yachts start to moor in within eyesight of the bungalows. Really very special.... More

Honestly, this was not a "cheap" 2 nights - a bit expensive, but worth it - then again, a peaceful little island in the pacific..... :). We (hubby and 5yr old) spent 2 nights and 3 days on this lovely little island. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful - they did their utmost to make sure we enjoyed... More

We stayed in an over water bungalow at l'escapade which we absolutely loved.They were much more spacious than they looked from outside with large lounge, comfortable bedroom and huge luxury bathroom. The deck was great with deckloungers and steps to access the water below which meant very easy snorkeling in the pretty lagoon. There wasn't as much variety of fish... More

Wonderful resort with luxury overwater huts. Great snorkelling directly from the private deck. Snorkelling equipment is included for hotel guests. We saw lots of fish and nice corals, a few turtles and also sea snakes. From the overwater bungalow swim away from the island towards the reef. That's where the corals are best. Other than that the island is best... More

The positives- they are few so i will mention them first. The view and sea life are beautiful but nothing you can't get out of a day trip. For someone who isn't fussy but does expect descent accommodation at this price... I was profoundly disappointed!!! Now where to from here. When we arrived and waited for our room we took... More

Location location location!!! But that's about all it has going for it. The service and food was deplorable, however the location was absolutely breath taking. Snorkeling with turtles was such a highlight and the overwater bungalows are pretty basic but you can't beat the deck looking over the water for total relaxation.

We went to L'Escapade during the off season and it was great. There were not too many people or children and it was very quiet and relaxing. The manager was very friendly and added an element of charm to the hotel. Words also cannot express the sheer joy when approaching from the city and seeing the bungalows. Overall it was... More

What a lovely tranquil, peaceful and pure paradise little Island just a twenty minute boat ride from Noumea. We stayed in a over the water bungalow for 5 nights. A truly amazing experience. Had turtles swimming near our bungalow everyday. The sea life is amazing. Never get bored watching from the balcony. Snorkelling was great too. Not much coral, but... More

Right from when we were greeted at the end of the pier, to drinks while we were booking in, the good times just continued. The garden room was spacious and clean,with a very comfortable bed. We viewed the over water bungalows one day and while these were more expensive they were outstanding. Staff were friendly and helpful. We found the... More
