We stayed at the Havannah for 6 nights and loved every second of it. I was thrilled to discover that the pictures, which are breathtaking, don’t do justice to the wonderful views of the beach and the gorgeous blue waters. We were initially worried that the holiday would cost a lot, but it was worth every penny – we had free delicious breakfasts, free use of snorkels, flippers, kayaks etc, free sunset cruises over the harbour, free transfers to go around Port Vila and the most tranquil and beautiful setting. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful, much like the Ni Vanuatu who smile to everyone as if they are an old friend. Particular mention to Johnathan though all the staff were lovely.
We had the pool view room and I would recommend it. The pool is shared with four other huts, but we were never in the pool with more than one other couple and the majority of the time had the pool all to ourselves. The huts are almost on the beach and have fantastic views. The snorkelling was wonderful – literally right off the beach and you could see so much – starfish, clownfish, seahorses etc - as the water was so clear.
The only slight downside was the fact that because the location was so far from Port Vila you had to eat at the resort – there was a cheaper bar snacks style menu for when three courses would be too much but the choice was a little limiting. However, the location being where it was meant that the Havannah was tranquil and unspoilt so it is difficult to see this as too much of a negative.
Overall we had an amazing time and wish we were back there! Tankyu tumas!
