Stayed here just for one night as a stop-over on way home from a trip. The rooms were fine, but had a great view over the ocean. Looking out from the balcony I had great views across the water and over the pool. Walking distance to shops, markets and eateries. The pool was very clean and the staff were very... More

Dear Mark N Thanks for reviewing our property and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes, though there isn't much in this country that bites or stings you do have to watch every now and then for urchins. The locals do find them a delicacy so they tend to be taken within days of staff seeing them for 'kaikai'.... More

Have been staying here for business atleast 3 times a year since 2012 and I will continue to stay here. The location is perfect as its not in the middle of the Port Vila CBD, but close enough to walk there and back.

Chantilly is a small professionally managed hotel great for long term and short term stays. Food is good and room services - cleaning etc are very good. The hotel is 5-10 mins walk from the Port Vila CBD and a good location for walking to other places to eat. The hotel has a fantastic location and all rooms overlook the... More

I picked this hotel using Trip Advisor and we are very glad I did. Chantilly's is in a fabulous location on the bay where you can see ships entering the harbour and views over to the other side of the bay. It is right in town, maybe a 3 or 4 minute walk along a tree-shaded path by the water... More

Chantilly's in Port Vila Vanuatu is a restful, sensible and caring place. Quiet rooms, great staff and good food make this a place worth staying in. Good wifi in the lobby area (which many locals also use) and most rooms (though not all) have cable internet access. BBC and CNN on TV, room service, easy access to all parts of... More

I stayed at Chantilly's for two nights but dined there all week. I went to Port Vila to see some friends but I stayed the first two nights at Chantilly's so that I could get some difficult business done without disturbing my friends home. It was perfect as always.
