we had a wonderful 12 days in Vila Chaumieres and were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation. Also each unit was screened with great gardens. Very accessable to town by bus and Richard and Ursula were great hosts arranging all our tours and really looking after us. It was just the quiet relaxing and interesting holiday we had... More

We have visited the restaurant on our two trips to Vanuatu and it is definitely worth it. A beautiful location - try and get there just before dusk as it is gorgeous at that time and the restaurant is decorated very nicely and it is sitting just over the water. Food is very nice and it is definitely worth visiting.

Richard and Ursula are wonderful hosts and I found Vila Chaumieres to be a delightful place to stay! As it is a bit of a distance (10 min bus ride) from town, it is very peaceful and relaxing. The food is lovely and accommodation is comfortable and clean. I enjoyed a room with a balcony located above reception. Upon arrival,... More

Stayed 2 nights in upstairs room. Absolutely perfect couples retreat and the view of the water and beautiful kept tropical garden. Loved the Balcony with relative seclusion (yes you do look over gardens and effectively restaurant setting indirectly) and bonus was the breakfast included - fabulous pastries and espresso coffee which were offered to be delivered. Very romantic restaurant setting... More

My partner and I had an amazing week staying at the Vila Chaumieres. Good food, easy access to the buses to town and amazing waterfront views. The staff looked after us and made any phone calls needed to check for diving and also booked all our tours.

This is a charming hotel right on the lagoon, hidden away from the main road through lush tropical gardens filled with flowers. We stayed three nights in an upstairs room which had a large balcony/deck overlooking the water. It was a fabulous view. The room iself was spacious, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. The upmarket restaurant was excellent (though expensive)... More

The restaurant is in a beautiful location, really nice food. Everything was fresh and exquisitely presented. Excellent service. Not too far from Port Vila. It is a really popular place so you will need to book ahead.

We stayed at Vila Chaumieres for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The owners Richard and Ursula were extremely welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure our entire stay was a holiday to remember. All the staff there are just as friendly, helping book local tours for us as well as our overnight trip to Tanna island.... More

I have travelled to most parts of the world though when I stayed at Vila Chaumieres, I wanted to stay much longer. The location of the place is only a short distance from town but provides a sense of serenity. There is a lagoon right outside your doorstep from which you can kayak down and swim in. The rooms are... More
