We had a fantastic 10 days at Havannah for our Babymoon just before Cyclone Pam hit. The bed was really comfortable and we had a Lagoon pool villa so just had to step out of our doors to get to the pool. The menu was extensive, I don't think I had the same thing twice for either lunch or dinner,... More

Dear Ivorylozbre It has been a while since you have written your review but Pam was not too nice on the communication towers amongst other things. I have been busy cleaning up her mess, and working to re-instate the resort. We will re-opened on the 27th of July and I more than likely drink that bottle of Verve on the... More

I thought I had died and gone to heaven! The Havannah is so much MORE than what you can see or read on a screen. We spent 4 nights in the Lagoon Pool Villa - Room 9 - second from the end. Only 5 in the series that have access to the upper pool - which we had virtually to... More

The accommodation, the pool, the daybed, the outdoor bath, the sun lounges, and the BBQ area, were even better than the pictures portrayed. And that view!!!!!! Awesome......The staff, from... More
