Magnificent…. One of the most relaxing hotels we have ever stayed in. The bungalows are right on the beach. They are clean, spacious, light and have a TV and internet. The manager of the hotel is friendly and chats with guests at the buffet dinner and afterwards in the bar. The staff at the front desk and around the hotel are all friendly. Some level of French is required; but our French was pretty rusty and we got by.
The buffet dinner is excellent…. Try the Dory Fish that you order separately at the grill counter.
It’s a long drive from Noumea, so stay a few nights at least. We broke the drive up by stopping for the night in Bourail on the return trip.
I would also check the time of year. According to the annual rainfall maps on the meteo.nc website, this stretch of coastline receives about 300 mm of rainfall per month in January, February, March. It was beautiful in June when we went.
To experience New Caledonia properly, you need to get out “in the bush”. This is a great and easy way to do it.
