Vanuatu offers some of the most breath-taking and insta-worthy views and vistas you will see in the South Pacific. From blindingly white sand beaches to waters so blue you can’t help but think ‘this can’t be real’ and of course lush green tropical forests. The scenery will amaze you day after day after day. And what’s great for you is that you can enjoy some of this natural beauty without having to leave your resort or even your room! Read on to find out the top 5 accommodations to stay at to ensure you are enjoying the most this pacific paradise has to offer.
The Havannah Vanuatu
Set on the stunningly beautiful white sand peninsula of Samoa Point overlooking a turquoise lagoon, The Havannah Vanuatu definitely is deserving of its National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World title. This boutique adults only retreat is only 30 minutes from the capital Port Vila yet feels worlds away due to its natural haven location. Tucked away under the hills that divide the island, the hills provide a natural rain shadow around the resort meaning you stay dry when the rest of the island is under tropical rain. We recommend you book into either the Deluxe Waterfont Villa or Waterfront Villa so that you can admire the panoramic view of the lagoon across to the distant neighbouring island and volcanoes from your private plunge pool, sundeck or even your bed!
Ratua Island Resort & Spa
Hidden within the pristine islands of Espiritu Santo is the little known private island paradise Ratua Island Resort & Spa. The island boasts 146 acres of lush tropical gardens, private beaches for use by guests only and lagoons and coral reefs part of a marine reserve. While the resort itself offers a barefoot eco-luxe experience that will have you returning more often than not. The resort strives to preserve an untouched sanctuary where you can stay in authentic yet luxurious accommodations, dine on locally sourced organic cuisine and of course see for yourself the natural wonder of Santo from the blue holes to coconut plantations and everything in between. One of the highlights when staying on this private island are the surrounding waters. The crystal clear turquoise lagoons and oceans are teeming with an abundance of marine life like you may never see elsewhere: ancient sea turtles, fish of many species and colourful corals. It’s a view like no other right on your doorstep.
Iririki Island Resort & Spa
Another private island escape only this time closer to the convenience of Port Vila is Iririki Island Resort & Spa. But don’t let the 3 minute ferry ride back to the mainland dissuade you from thinking that this island offers anything less than spectacular views from its grounds. This top holiday resort overlooks Mele Bay and whether you are admiring the view from your room’s balcony, the dining facilities or the white sand beaches it will leave you feeling serene and secluded in tropical paradise. The Deluxe Ocean View Apartments face west and as such are one of the most sort after rooms on the island. The panoramic view captures the beauty of Vila Bay to the Coral Sea and some of the most mesmerizing sunsets you will ever see. If you are more of a morning person then the Premium Waterfront & Overwater Farés offer glorious views overlooking the beautiful coral reefs of Vila Bay & beyond and captures the radiance of beautiful sunrises for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Grand Hotel & Casino
If you are only wanting a short stay or want to be right in the heart of downtown Port Vila close to shops, restaurants and such, there is still a scenic accommodation option for you when you stay at Grand Hotel & Casino. This property is located right on the waterfront overlooking Port Vila harbour and no matter the room type you choose you will have spectacular bay and harbour views thanks to the floor to ceiling windows and private balconies. We suggest staying on a higher floor to experience a more uninterrupted vista.
Breakas Beach Resort
Nestled amidst swaying palms on a private beach, Breakas Beach Resort is an intimate retreat offering the ultimate “feet in the sand” holiday. Enhanced by the natural beauty of a private cove on Pango Peninsula the resort sits in an unrivalled backdrop just minutes from Port Vila. With gorgeous ocean views from the resort’s restaurant, bar, infinity pool and Beachfront Fares you will see why so many guests don’t venture too far from the resort during their stay. The secluded location and the lush tropical forest that surrounds the resort all adds to the escapism vibe and enhances the daily view on display.
