We recently stayed 7 nights at The Havannah. We both needed to do plenty of nothing and this place is just perfect. The resort is situated only a short 30 minute drive from Port Villa but I believe this is the best place on the island. As soon as you arrive you are welcomed by the most amazing view of... More

We have just returned from The Havannah after a 4 night stay for my Husbands 50th Birthday and can honestly say we loved every minute. Having stayed in many resorts around the world this really did rank as one of the best. Beautiful surroundings, amazing food and staff that made us feel like family.

My husband and I spent 5 nights at The Havannah to celebrate my birthday at the end of October. We stayed in a beautiful pool side villa and enjoyed every minute. There are so many boxes this place ticks but by far the thing that makes this place so dammed wonderful is the staff! From Bruce on reception, to Moro... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the delux waterfront villa. Everything was perfect from the wow factor walking in the place to the tours offered. The food was excellent with daily fresh option. Ideal location with post card views. Expensive but quality.

We stayed at the Havannah for our honeymoon in October 2014 and this place just blew us away. We stayed in Villa #20, one of the brand new Deluxe Waterfront Villas which was absolutely superb. We spent our days relaxing in our private infinity edge pool or on the day bed or on one of the many outdoor lounging spots.... More

I believe that Tripadvisor works best when a hotels problems and shortcomings are set out in detail so that fellow travellers can be forewarned and forearmed. I will state from the outset however that this review was difficult to write. What am I going to say? That the staff at the Havannah were too friendly? That the location was too... More

After reading many Tripadvisor reviews we visited the Havannah at the end of September. The hotel lived up to our expectations ... until it was time to leave. We chose this upmarket resort as a place to relax and celebrate my 65th birthday. Particularly memorable were the twilight tour to Mt Yasur, the picnic on a secluded beach and a... More
