We stayed here for 5 nights. Our room was a good size for a couple with a balcony which overlooked the bay. Beautiful sunrise & sunsets. The staff here were absolutely amazing. One I particular - "La La" (Manuella) was an absolute gem! Our volcano tour kept getting cancelled and she went over and beyond to find other places for... 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. It has a new manager which I thought might change the... More

Stayed at Chantilly's for one night between domestic and international flights. Staff were excellent, very professional and helpful. Room was a reasonable standard - large, clean with average furnishings. Nice view over the harbour and bay. Restaurant food and staff were also great. I have already recommended to friends and family. Super comfortable bed, got a great night's sleep. Bathroom... More

Wow, sitting outside overlooking the bay on a balmy evening, dining on excellent tapas - it doesn't get much better. Glorious view, staff were so very professional and the food couldn't be faulted. Well done Chantillys.

We were first timers to vanuatu and so were very shocked by the dirtiness of port vila and the third world state of the country poverty in your face. We were given a one bedroom room on the very end closest to the non stop traffic of the highway outside and as the sofa bed girl I got zero sleep... More

Dear aussie profession Thank you for taking the time to review our property. I do agree Vanuatu is a contrast to the western world with many luxuries and things I used to take for granted in Australia myself, not available or not established. To some this contrast adds to the charm, beauty and culture of this remote paradise. In line... More
