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

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
