“Highly recommended for long term or short term stays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

We spent five happy months at The Hub in Port Vila from June to October 2013. A true gem of a find, new, well appointed apartments with glorious views of the lagoon from the large private balconies. Everything you could want, especially for a long term stay. Spacious, clean, quality fittings and furniture, TV and wifi, beautiful gardens, secure and private, Having a full size fridge and stove with oven provided options from eating out all the time, which is essential for a longer term stay. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of town to be quiet and peaceful, but within walking distance of two large, well-stocked supermarkets, a myriad of smaller shops and restaurants. Only a short two minute walk to catch a local bus into town for fruit and vegetables at the market, or more restaurants. For short term stays a laundry service is provided if required, but for long termers access to the central service area with washing machines is a bonus. Wonderful sparkling pool, with a nearby BBQ which is available for guest use, and by Christmas access to the beach area at the lagoon will be completed, with a large Nakamal to follow. The owners live on site and are continually maintaining the property to a very high standard. They are on hand at all times to assist you with any queries, provide information or attend to your needs. Definitely recommended for business people or holiday makers alike!!

Have just spent two months staying at The Hub in Port Vila. It was an excellent choice. The new apartment was very modern, well appointed and well designed. It was a 2 bedroom unit with marvelous views over the lagoon from our private balcony. It was also private and you could rarely see the other guests, unless you chose to rendezvous at the pool area for a barbecue. The apartment was well equipped with wifi, TV, large fridge, full stove and full range of kitchen gear. The washing machines were located in an adjacent service area. Hosts lived on site and were very helpful with advice and information when required. Quiet area of town, but close enough to walk/bus to shops and restaurants. Have no hesitation in highly recommending this accommodation - either for business or pleasure trips.

I just recently completed my first trip to Port Villa. After traveling extensively throughout the South Pacific "The Hub" felt like home away from home.

The on-site owner/operators were always very helpful in meeting all my needs as well as making sure I was comfortable. The units are lovely and clean with awesome views of the lagoon. Situated one lane way back from the main road "The Hub" is quiet, secure and very tranquil.

The units have full cooking facilities, which is always a bonus whether your traveling by yourself as a couple or with your family.

It is only a short stroll back to the main road and a short bus ride to some great restaurants and two of the main grocery stores.

I would recommend "The Hub" to those traveling for work or pleasure, long or short stay as long as you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere and quality appointments.

Expect to be warmly greeted on your return to "The Hub" each day by Coco (one of the friendliest dogs), who'll be eager to see you and welcome you home.

I hope to stay at "The Hub" again soon.

Worked for two months in Port Villa. The Hub felt like a home away from home. The hosts are very helpful in meeting your working needs as well as making sure you are comfortable. The rooms are lovely and clean with awesome views of the lagoon. The house girl does a great job in keeping your rooms neat. Being off the main road it is nice and quiet and very secure. Having full cooking facilities is also a bonus when your travelling away for a long time and just want something simple rather than restaurant food.

It is only a short walk to the main road and near some good restaurants and some of the main grocery stores. Who recommend the Hub to anybody whether it was a long or short stay. Last but not least the Hub is home to Coco one of the friendliest dogs you will meet.

What a pleasure it was to stay at The Hub Vanuatu. The self contained apartments are clean, tidy and modern. The apartments have access to the lagoon - on which they are set, a lovely pool with under cover BBQ area and outdoor settings. The location is a 2 minute car ride to the main shopping / food / market area. We walked this in 15 minutes as the sun is always shining! The owners are friendly, very approachable, and knowledgeable with regards to the location and things to do. The Hub is ideal for couples and families alike. I would recommend this place to anyone I know travelling to Vanuatu.

Room Tip: The first two apartments when you enter the drive way have great views of the lagoon to the left, ar...

Pleasant place to stay nicely fitted out roomy owners were wonderful and couldn't' be more help full
We stumbled on them at the last week before leaving because our accommodation was stuffed up at another resort, the place was brand new and very well laid out.
The location was handy to attractions and a very short trip to town
Well priced waterfront with a nice view and cool breezes all aircond but we didn't need to use them because of the well ventilated design.

Have been visiting Port Villa now for many years and usually stay with friends or in one of the larger resorts. This time (December 2012) we discovered "The Hub" a lovely new family friendly boutique apartment . The three bedroom apartment was perfect for us we all had plenty of space to unpack and spread out ,the free wireless internet was a bonus for the children. We hired a car for easy access to everywhere we wanted to go including sightseeing and trips to the local supermarket for great supplies (with a French flavour) so we could just relax and self cater. The children loved the pool and exploring the beautiful Erakor Lagoon, really nice stay.
