We asked our taxi driver to take us to somewhere really special with peace & quiet, lovely outlook & the best restaurant serving 'Coconut Crab'... he certainly got it right in every aspect. We love this place - gorgeous gardens, great food & the owner is very pleasant. We took her card & at that point we decided that some... More

Try this place if you are after a peaceful relaxing evening, the location is great and the walk from the car park to the restaurant is beautiful. through a lovely garden. Setting is great and the food is good.

My partner who is a vegetarian, was delivered the wrong meal. They took his meal back and after 10 minutes offered to take mine back to the kitchen. When the correct dish (tempura vegetables) was delivered, oil was dripping from the vegetables. It was inedible and at that point we asked for the bill and intended to leave. The manager... More

I have thought it through a lot, and I do not want to be unfair to a very warm place, but I want to outline all points separately. This quiet adults-only resort inspires warmth and tranquillity. Except that it is not really quiet and not really adults-only as it operates a separate restaurant, which is (justifiably) full most of the... More

OK - maybe the Paradise bit is over the top. However, Vila Chaumieres is an oasis. It is a short distance from Port Villa (bus ride - you hail them like taxis - 250 V) You can have a choice of a room upstairs above the reception area with a view of the lagoon on a cottage in the tropical... More

A small boutique type resort with 6 separate bungalows, each with there own ensuite and air con and tasteful decor. The complimentary breakfast was lovely with a cooked breakfast available if you want more. Each bungalow is separated by a path which is completely surrounded by lush tropical gardens which are just gorgeous and attended to daily by Ian and... More

We didn't stay here, but we ate at restaurant twice, and it really has to be one of the best we have ever been to, anywhere ever! The coconut crab is to die for! Along with the coconut ice cream! The view is incredibly gorgeous, romantic and quiet. Truly special and memorable. The staff are never far away and the... More

My wife and I went to Vanuatu for our honeymoon last month from the 7th -18th December and we could not have been happier. Vila Chaumieres is just far enough away from town that it is quiet and feels like you're own private area, but close enough that it still only costs 150 vatu by bus to get to town.... More

My daughter & I stayed at Vila Chaumieres for ten days and would recommend it highly for those seeking a small boutique hotel. The owners, Ursula & Richard were great hosts and have the local knowledge and contacts to recommend the best tours and give other handy local hints. We enjoyed the tours they recommended which included the Melanesian Tours... More
