A truly relaxing resort. All bures/bungalow style, garden, pool front or beach front. Staff were all welcoming, friendly and great to deal with. The food is to die for: 3 full gourmet menu meals per day, with also a vegetarian menu at each sitting. The pool was sensational, and the beach, whilst small, was lovely. Snorkelling is an easy swim from the activities centre, with plenty of coloured fish and coral.

Our stay was like a dream!!! The Havannah boasts an absolute stunning location, friendly, attentive and engaging staff, luxury Villas and a fine dining experience that we will never forget. You can do as much or as little as you like here. We like to explore, and took advantage of booking all our tours through the resort. It was hassle free, and no problem to book in the day prior. Being a small adults only resort it felt very secluded, and private, with us often having the beach and water activities to ourselves. The snorkelling at the resort was amazing, the water crystal clear, with so many brightly coloured fish. The complimentary sunset cruise, and additional entertainment of the fire dancers and the band all added to make perfect evenings. We could not fault a thing, We loved every minute of our stay and would thoroughly recommend a stay at The Havannah.

The Villa was amazing. Had absolutely everything we needed and the things we didn't have - like a cocktail, were only a phone call away. Gorgeous accommodating people with beautiful smiles and infectious laughter. The food was very impressive and the spa treatments awesome. Loved the hot rocks!

The beauty of this resort cannot be overstated. Undoubtedly a five-star location set on the more relaxed side of Efate island, the Havannah is an adults-only romantic getaway perfectly suited to those that prefer curated luxury with attentive staff and special touches. Havannah Harbour is peaceful and calm, allowing you to explore snorkelling spots and enjoy the numerous water activities available from the well stocked activity shed. Breakfast and lunch are solid (shout out to the fresh breakfast pastries!) but dinner is where the chef shines with a rotating selection of fine dining options. We really enjoyed the unique beach dinner experience where the table setting was part sandcastle and part work of art complete with flowers and fronds. There's no bad seat in the house but be sure to reserve at least one meal on the jetty while you're here. I'd recommend the private beach lunch/snorkelling experience, weather permitting. A short boat ride across calm waters to a secluded spot for a relaxing few hours with good food and wine to match was a great way to see another side of the bay. We also indulged in a massage which was wonderful and easily arranged. There were a number of other experiences that can be arranged directly with the resort which I'd recommend looking into based on your preferences. We stayed in Villa 19 - one of two Deluxe Waterfront Villas - and it was possibly the nicest suite we've had the pleasure of staying in. The interior is stunning but the villa really shines when you open up and explore outside. The highlight is the plunge pool overlooking the bay, but your access directly to the waterfront and multiple levels of areas to recline really give this villa a sense of spaciousness and comfort. You can book a private barbecue in-room which we would consider on our next visit. Overall I'd highly recommend this resort for a special occasion where you want to be waited on at every turn and not worry about making too many decisions. Considering the resort had only re-opened from Covid it was incredible how well everything operated. Kudos to the fabulous staff led by the GM George who was never far away and available for any ask. Marco, Winnie, Anita, Daisy & John (and no doubt more staff that we haven't named) were absolutely lovely and we felt warmly and genuinely cared for on this relaxing trip to paradise.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Havannah. It is a hotel I would recommend to any discerning traveller. My real irritation though is on three separate occasions the hotel was to come back to me with information, they never did. Although I spoke with Ann (senior manager) who assured me I would have a response, nothing happened. Poor form as we were staying only 3 days due to travel issues. Despite my irritations it still deserves 5.

From the airport collection to the farewells, The Havannah will take a piece of your heart. The location, staff, food and experiences are world class. Often we felt like the only guests - it is quiet, private and well spaced out. The snorkelling off the beach was a must do - the coral and fish stunning! The staff really make this a special place - they go out of their way to make you feel pampered. We stayed in a Garden Villa - we loved the privacy. This won’t be our last trip to The Havannah!

It is definitely an exclusive and adults only resort. The quality of the accommodation, the food and the service exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a waterfront cabin, with a plunge pool and direct access to the water. However, there were no bad room locations, from what we could see- the pool/garden rooms are set back slightly from the beach but have excellent views and an outlook over an infinity pool. While we did visit Port Vila itself there is no reason to leave the resort, however we didn't get the opportunity to visit some of the local waterfalls- which we understand are beautiful. The country itself reminds us of Fiji in early1980's- and, while we liked that rustic feel, the pampering at the resort was excellent and made our trip the most relaxing we have had in years.

No doubt one of the best Resorts in Vanuatu. The service, quality of food and accommodation is world class. The staff were not only friendly but had the ability to discern our needs based on casual conversations with them or our request habits. Simply amazing and a must visit if you want an isolated location focused on unique guest experiences where you can simply relax and rejuvenate.

The Havannah is a great place to relax and be pampered. The accommodation, hospitality and food are first class, in fact the food is equal to any top restaurant anywhere. Greg Pechan the co-founder and owner and the staff are excellent - friendly, in for a chat like a joke and very accommodating. They are very informative in relation to the history of the area. The bonus inclusions such as Sunset Cruise, Picnic on a nearby island, Massage, Cocktails on the beach with the Fire Dancers were excellent.
