We have stayed in Vila many times, and this was our best experience ever! Thank you for such a beautiful experience. The fares are clean, individual and private. They are well equipped with air conditioning, basic cooking facilities, fans, a good bathroom and in the beachfront fares, a great view of port vila harbour. The fares are located away from... More

We had a fantastic stay here over the New year period. We were welcomed by the lovely Liz who helped us with anything we needed. The rooms were beautiful and well maintained, the staff are all very friendly and helpful. They have a beautiful pool and a personal jetty with the water being right at you door step. They have...

Had a wonderful time at the lodge for my honeymoon. Really can't fault the place. Room was spacious and well equipt. Loved being so close to the water. The staff were very friendly and the lodge was close to town (10 min walk) Loved the pool and going out in the kayak. Definately recomend this as a place to stay

It was a nice place to stay, a bit out of the way to the main part of town. If you want a relaxing place to stay this will suit you. It had a nice pool, the rooms are very good and large. If you're looking for somewhere with lots going on this is probably not the place, if you're... More

Dear Graig Thank you for your review. It is important for the guest to know that we are not located in the centre of town but 10 to 12 minutes walk to the "heart" of Port Vila. Likely there is a new Shopping centre being built 300 metros away we will have even more restaurant and shops nearby. When is... More

After some more basic accommodations on other Pacific islands this place was the right one to spoil ourselves over Christmas. The location in the northern outskirts Port Vila's just twenty walking minutes from the town center away is a very nice one with the setting in a lush tropical garden right at the waters of the lagoon. From the balcony... More

Grab your cocktail, head to the hammocks and watch the sunset. Grab a paddle board or kayak and head out into the bay. It's beautiful here. A bit loud when kids are in the pool, but just relax and enjoy. Well worth it.

What a fabulous place - couldn't fault it or the staff or the environment. Inexpensive, wonderful helpful staff and the rooms/studios are fantastic especially the upstairs ones right on the waterfront. Just a hop skip and jump into the warm lagoon outside the Lodge.

We stayed here with our family of three and had a lovely holiday. The pool was lovely and, being such a small hotel, we were the only ones in it for the whole time we were there. It is not particularly child friendly (eg no shallow areas) and it can get quite sunny there for a few hours in the... More

We were here in early Sept. Unfortunately discovered this place too late to secure a booking for the whole week but we enjoyed 4 lovely days here. In my opinion the best situation in or around Port Vila. It is right on the beach (not possible unless you stay at a resort (further out of town)), easy walking distance into... More
