Me and my partner went to Vanuatu to meet up with some friends but before heading to the villages we stayed at a few hotels in and around Vila. Chantilly's was by far the most impressive. We also stayed at Hideaway Island, Beachcomber lodge and Crystal Blue Lagoon Resort.
We loved everything about the Chantillys
- The staff were so friendly and there was nothing they would not do for you
- The rooms, lobby was always so clean
- The location was great! 5 minutes walk to town meant we could do some shopping, quickly drop it back at the hotel so we didn't have to lug it around then head back out again
- Beautiful views, especially of the sunset at night
- The rooms have everything you need and more
It is a bit pricey but so worth it!
The only down point I would say was Tillys the restaurant. It has such a good reputation and we were very much looking forward to dining there. So it was a bit of a disapointment. The meals were a overpriced for what you got (comparing them to what you can get alsewhere in Port Vila) and not as good as we expected for such a well known restaurant but the service was amazing.
Looking back at the hotel from the jetty, it is starting to look a little run down but that doesn't take anything away from the quality of the hotel.
If we were to go back we would difenately stay there again.
