My beat friend, her brother and I stayed here whilst visiting Vanuatu for a friends wedding. Ian met us at the airport, with a warm smile and firm handshake to take us to Seachange Lodge. Although we hadn't organised for pick-up we were pleasantly surprised that he came to greet us. After a short and informative drive about Vanuatu (by... More

I stayed at the beginning and the end of my trip to Vanuatu at the sea change. Ian is a great host and he makes sure you have everything what you need. He helped me to organize trips, I got to eat fruits from the nice garden and I went kayaking from his place. I can highly recommend this place... More

We have recently returned from a wonderful week in our waterfront chalet. It's such a lovely location right on the lagoon, out of the centre of Port Vila but only a 15 minute walk to town or less to shops/supermarket, local food stalls, local village and Kava bars. The chalet has all you need to self cater (just no oven)... More

Just got back from a couple week stay at the Seachange Lodge. I have been to Port Vila six times in the last 10 years and have stayed in many hotels over the years. The Seachange Lodge was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in there. The new owner Ian is an impeccable host and will bend... More

Once again our waterside chalet was wonderful. The new owner, Ian was extremely helpful and obliging. A very good base near Port Vila if you don't want to stay in a larger resort. Easy walk (15 minutes) or bus ride every few minutes to town, supermarkets and bakery very close. Great fun to use the little motorised dinghy to explore... More

Ian was a great host and the units were great value for money spacious and very clean. I arrived at midnight and Ian picked me up and could not do enough to help. The lagoon villa was great - quiet and has a great outlook over the water.

Like someone else said, we were also met at the airport so right away there was no confusion or anxiety in a new country. Very pleasant owner. Close to the airport and beautiful inside and out. Both rooms we stayed in were spacious, clean, comfortable and gorgeous views. Surrounded by lush trees and the lagoon, really felt a mile away... More

We stayed at Seachange Lodge in April 2014 after booking it via Agoda. We arrived late at night after our flight from Brisbane and we're greeted by the owner who'd kindly stayed up to let us welcome us. We had booked a basic room, but we upgraded to a lovely vila over looking the lagoon. The room was fantastic. Really... More

Couldn't have asked for a better spot to call my short term home while working at the Port Vila Hospital (10 minute walk). The lodge is beautifully maintained, the grounds spectacular and the lagoon and the pool a great way to unwind at the end of a busy day. Ian was a generous and kind host. The internet was fast...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A truly special place for special people, with an ambience you can't buy. Six units tucked away in an exotic tropical garden. It’s like visiting a friend's house instead of being in a commercial resort. From the Waterside Chalet, to the Garden Cottage that is ideal for two couples or a family group, to the single room studios, the care to detail makes Seachange Lodge that very special place. ... more   less
