Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Vanuatu Beachfront Apartments is where you want to stay if your aim is to rest up and recover in what is close to paradise. Ten minutes from Port Villa (which I would get out of as soon as possible), this little spot is a gem.
Only recently opened its right on the beach front, its simple, modern and clean accommodation. We had a great front room overlooking the pool, the beach and bay. We could walk out of the room straight on to a deck. That is where we spent many an hour just sitting around, reading, writing and talking and watching the yachts passing by.

You can eat at the bar, or walk up the beach 5 minutes to another café- bar for a meal or drink. There are plenty of restaurants in Port Villa, but I would certainly take advise from the locals about where to go and out to get there. Getting around is best done by car or bus that can be easily organised through the (VBA).

A young Australian couple manage the Apartments and they are very friendly, good fun and genuinely nice people. They have two children who are a delight and the family is intimately connected with the local community. If you have children of your own this is the place to go, the locals adore them, its very safe and there are heaps of fun things for young children to do (eg net fishing in the shallow waters with the locals, petting friendly lizards, playing with local children, swings, bikes you name it).

There are plenty of adventures for all, from gentle shell collecting walks along the beach, ventures up into the estuary, visits the local waterfall, or the local community. Canoes are available for the more energetic visitor enticed by the idea of a paddle around the bay, down the beach are ski hires for those wanting speed and to make a noise. There is also the option of hiring a car for the day and driving around the island.

Its also a 15 minute drive from the airport and you can get to Vanuatu on direct flights from most major cities in Australia.

Thanks for taking time to write this kind review. It was an absolute pleasure getting yo know you and look forward to having you back here again shortly. We strive to make sure all our guests have a wonderful holiday and our small but intimate size gives us the opportunity to do that. We are delighted you found plenty to do when you that suited you and spent hours by the pool overlooking the ocean when you needed time out. I am glad that you mentioned the children as we are very dedicated to making sure children have a great time in our kids club giving parents a well earned break. See you back here soon I hope.

The postion was excellent, beautiful beach for swimming and watersports, just far enough from Port Vila and really close the cascades, zipline, kitesurfing, snorkelling, coffee house, etc. My children loved the Pikinini Paradise especially the Iguana's. Jetski, kayaks, outrigger canoe and bikes were available or we walked down the beach to the Beach Bar with a fire show and circus on every weekend. The staff were absolutely lovely, they really looked after the whole family and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotless, the restaurant and poolside bar were inviting and friendly. We will be back!

Room Tip: Some rooms open right onto the pool area, we loved it but if you prefer something quieter there are...

Thanks heaps for your review. It was an absolute pleasure having your family here and getting to know you. We are very happy that your children enjoyed pikinini paradise, We believe its very important for parents to have their own time out when they are on holiday to relax and rejuvenate and our kids club allows parents that opportunity. The fire show and the circus on the beach are certainly enjoyed by everyone that visits and are a definite must-see. The staff here thoroughly enjoyed having you here and especially loved the children. We would love to see you back here next year and will make sure you have another wonderful relaxing holiday.

Hi Holidaygirl233, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us, this is certainly a priority for everyone here at VBA. The snorkelling on the reef in our bay is certainly popular for many guests, as is a visit to the underwater post office. We would love to see you back here again in the future.
