We love this place and I am in fear of becoming one of those couples who go to the same place every year for their annual holidays !! The staff were all 5 stars, they are so willing to go above and beyond to ensure your stay is first class. Accommodation was 5 stars, Food was 10 stars breath taking...

We had the most amazing time at The Havannah. The people and staff are amazing and make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive. The views and the resort are second to none. Our plan of relaxing and doing very little was executed to perfection with the help of the friendly staff. We will visit again for sure!...

If you want to get away from it all without children this is the perfect place to relax. There's enough things to dThankso to keep you occupied or not. The food at the restaurant is great along with the wine list. I've heard from friends who've visited Vanuatu that service for food can be really bad. Not at this resort....

We truly had the most amazing stay at The Havannah. We arrived just after a cyclone had passed through Vanuatu and had been delayed for a day in Fiji. From check-in experience, to meals, to interactions with the staff, the entire experience was world class. We had a waterfront villa, complete with the plunge pool and path from our villa...

We just returned from an amazing vacation at the Havannah - cyclone experience and all. We went diving, relaxed at our lagoon villa, enjoyed a picnic on a private beach, got evacuated because of a cyclone and relaxed on a sunset cruise. The place is well managed by Frederick. We saw him daily, and he made sure to do all...

A beautiful place to stay if you're looking for luxurious rest and relaxation. With only around 20 rooms it is small enough that all the staff know your name. With an adults only policy and so few guests there is always a sense of calm, happy, islander feel which makes relaxing easy. The restaurant is nice with a range of...

Very good location, the sea view and the beach are perfect if comparing to other resorts or hotels in Port Vila. Their restaurant offers very good food and nice environment, with friendly and helpful staff. Our villa with private plunge pool is perfect for couple. There were lot of things to do when we stayed in there so no worry...

Celebrated 10 year wedding anniversary. 4 days of perfection. Crystal clear water, beautiful reef, snorkeling, water sports and some of the most personalized amazing service you will ever experience. The resort can only have about 34 guests so it is genuine personal service. Everyone greets you by name and they are so nice it really makes for an outstanding visit....

The biggest problem with this resort is that it is priced as a top notch 5-star place, while in reality it is ok 4 star resort. And I certainly didn't expect to fight cockroaches in the room every day while paying well into 4 digits for a few nights during honeymoon. If you are a huge fan of secluded places...

Dear Georgiy K Thank you for your review.
