“Just superb, great Coconut Kindy!”
Reviewed November 24, 2010

We had our second part of our Vanuatu holiday here. Totally loved being near the city, close to the general store (where I got baguettes daily) and this spacious, gorgeous resort..

Our 3 year old daughter loved attending Coconut Kindy for local kids and visitors. Blended right in! So we adults had a few hours of peace in the mornings. The lagoon is not exactly for swimming but kayaking is great and some nice restaurants along the road nearby. Villa Chaumiere and Starfish Cove are both great. There is a bar/restaurant in the resort but the food is more casual.

The playground was great for the little one.. The flying fox kept some older kids happy too. I totally recommend this place for families who want the extra luxury of having a small kitchen and also easy access to room service. My husband was happy about the air conditioning in the bedrooms. My daughter got a water-borne infection on her feet (earlier on the trip) probably from having broken skin in the first place, but Naomi and staff were all helpful organising medicine and doctor visit. Thank you guys for making our holiday so special!!!!

Lagoon Beach Resort was a fantastic place to stay. This was our first time to
Vanuatu, my brother was getting married at the resort. The apartments were self contained, very modern and beautiful, views of the lagoon. The staff were very helpful, especially Naomi, Felix, Alice and Wesley. Best place for a wedding on the lagoon. Not far from town, just step outside on to the road and straight away a bus would come along to take you where ever you wanted to go. My 2 boys had a great time, on the lagoon, pool, Coconut Kids Club, playground, movie night, canoeing, what more can you ask for. Can't wait to go back again, best experience ever.

We previously stayed here in 2008 and it really is a top spot for a holiday. The location is just out of town but so accessible to everywhere. The resort driver Wesley is probably the safest driver I ever had in Port Vila, very knowledgable and very helpful.
The new 'honeymoon' type suites look fantastic and the inclusions are such quality that would put many 5 star Aussie hotels to shame.
Great new kids club well frequented by guests and local children alike, never saw a fight once. Never saw a child crying at the club either...how do they do this???? Just all round happiness.
The Nakamal still has quality meals at reasonable prices, the breakfasts are wonderful especially the banana pancakes made by the very talented Lolia. Her choc mud cake is quite decadent.
Whilst I was there she was making a 'white' chocolate WEDDING mudcake but I couldn't wangle an invitation so I can only imagine.
As usual, everything in the apartment worked, no blown lights, hot water on demand, air con perfect.
I wish to thank Cris and George and the team at LBR for a wonderful week of relaxation.
Keep doing what you're doing because it's perfect.

My husband and I and our 2 teenage children (16 and 17) stayed for 7 days and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. It's not a huge resort, but it had everything that we needed. The apartments were well equipped, clean and comfortable. Our apartment had a lovely view of the lagoon and the beautifully kept gardens. We ate at the cafe most nights and tried most of dishes on the menu - I recommend the yummy Chicken Curry!! Sitting by the pool with a cocktail or a Tusker after a busy day out was just what we needed and while the pool isn't huge, it was certainly big enough to keep our kids amused and us cool and comfortable.

The Manager, Naomi and her daughters made us feel at home and our kids quickly made friends and spent time with them playing volley ball, ping pong and swimming in the lagoon and pool. The staff is friendly and goes out of their way to help you. Thank you to Felix for our welcome and tour recommendations and to Naomi for setting up an impromptu movie night on our last evening.

We'll be back :)

We stayed at Lagoon Beach for the second time whilst on holidays in Vanuatu and once again it didn't disappoint. The Bar & Restaurant staff were as usual very helpful - Alice, Lolia and Yola in particular. The boys couldn't get enough of the steaks from the Restaurant. Buses are very easy to catch out the front of the Resort. We had the bungalow and an apartment and they are both very clean and tidy and well equipped with everything you need to make your holiday a good one. Kris and George the owner's of the Resort have now bought Erakor Island and we are keen to stay over there next time we visit. The only downside to our stay at Lagoon Beach would be the new Manager that is in place at the moment. I found she didn't handle things as well as Kris did and she certainly wasn't as friendly but I'm sure this will change in the future. If you're looking for somewhere special to stay then this place is it and also keep your eyes on Erakor Island Resort as Kris and George are doing some great reno's over there and the bar and restaurant there are equally as good if not better (a lot of the staff work at both resorts).

This is are very modern and lovely self contained apartments. We really enjoyed our stay here but remember they are self contained apartments so don't expect the full five stay resort experience, ie. lots of restaurants and bars. It is very relaxing and laid back and the staff are really wonderful. There is a restaurant and pool bar and they will cook a bbq for you which we found to be ideal on our first night there. The playground is fantastic, the kids loved this. There is a lovely Australian family that live there and our kids really enjoyed their company and playing volleyball with them and Natalie who works in the office. The only let down was the pool which is a bit dated but in saying that it is just like a typical backyard pool. It was still clean etc. just not a big fancy pool like alot of your bigger resorts. There is a shop just a few minutes walk up the road which was great for fresh bread and supplies every morning. It was also great having a washing machine and dryer at our disposal. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a self contained apartment experience however not for people that want the whole five star resort treatment with restaurants, bars, health spa etc. Getting into Port Vila is really easy, just walk out the front andd hail a bus. It is a main road so there is plenty going past.

Had the best family holiday at Lagoon Beach Resort, Naomi and her beautiful daughters were so helpful and nothing was a problem. The accomodation was clean and spacious and the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing is a problem and they can't do enough to help you or give you information about the Island and where to visit. My kids ( 20, 16 and 10) loved Lagoon Beach Resort and are wanting to go back again. The food was very very good as were the cocktails Alice made us. The grounds are beautiful and spacious and there is always something for the kids to do, beach volleyball, movie nights, snorkelling, swimming and heaps more... Will definately go back and have a holiday and will be staying there again!!! Thank you once again for such a great holiday and for being looked after so well!!!
