After spending 4 nights in Noumea we took the Betico to Ile des Pins - this was a great alternative to flying - we left port at 7am, could take extra weight in our luggage and arrived at 9.30am. We had arranged a pick up with LeMeridien. The island is beautiful with a mixture of palms and pines surrounded by every colour of blue. The hotel itself was lovely with a beautiful white beach, lots of sunbeds and cabanas. The water is fairly calm so great for kayaking and also to try paddle boarding for the first time - all the equipment is there and free to use. Also table tennis, snooker etc. the thing that we did find a little disappointing was the service was not what we would expect of a 5 star resort. Also every night it was the same menu for dinner all three nights which become a little boring. Appreciating we are on an island but you could change certain things to make it a little different. Also we were told you could walk to the natural pool in 15mins and given a map in Japanese (they had none in English) the map was not clear at all - be sure to know where you are going! Overall a relaxing four days with an amazing view....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Paradise is shaped like this. Le Meridien Ile des PIns overlooks the pristine white beaches of Oro bay, just 15 minutes from the island's airport, and is nestled in a centuries old coconut grove, redolent with the scent of lush, tropical vegetation. Le paradis ressemble a cela. Le meridien Ile des Pins donne sur les plages blanches immaculees de la baie d'Oro, a seulement 15 minutes de l'aeroport et implante au coeur d'une cocoteraie seculaire, regorgeant du parfum exhale par une vegetation tropicale et luxuriante. ... more less
