Looking for a decent coffee, good service and an old-school big breakfast? Chantillys is the place. Like many places in Port Vila, it took a hit from cyclone Pam last year. The beautiful jetty has not been rebuilt and was a place for a sunset cocktail or a candle-lit dinner. Bright, open and designed to get sea views and breezes-it... More

We stayed at Chantillys on the last night of our trip, due mainly to proximity of airport and early departure. No problems with overall condition of room, staff friendly. However we awoke to a strange sound in our room to find a rat eating a banana that had been provided with our breakfast (needless to say breakfast not eaten). My... More

We enjoyed a very good dinner at this venue, All dishes were tastefully arranged and the restaurant was very quiet. Quality of the meal was excellent, Is probably one of the best restaurants in Port Vila.

I decided to stay at Chantilly's due to its close proximity to Port Vila Township and the rooms with balconies overlooking the harbour. It's also got a nice beach bar right next door where you can lounge on beanbags or chairs in the sand and sip on nice cocktails and nibbles. The breakfast is also quite good, we just had... More

I've stayed at many Port Vila hotels over the years, but nowadays I just come back to Chantilly's. Excellent value. It's not right in the town centre, but is within easy walking distance, and Port Vila minibuses (with a "T" registration plate) are numerous and will take you anywhere in town for 150V. And waking up (and breakfasting) to that... More

We had the best dinner at Chantillys one night. We chose there to eat as the menu was so reasonably priced and the restaurant looks out over the water. We were able to sit out on the deck which was great and all the tables were decorated with fresh flowers & a candle. I had the thai beef salad (1300... More

Once again it was great to stay at this hotel with its good restaurant, comfortable air conditioned rooms, free wifi and friendly service. Ideal for both holidays and work. It is well placed for the town and the beach though currently they are constructing a tourists walkway so it will be even better when this is finished. I would recommend... More

We dined here for lunch on the last day of our trip and the experience was excellent. The staff were accommodating, friendly and fun. The food was classic French influence by local ingredients. The poulet fish was the best of the trip! The view is spectacular too!
