The Best Hotels in Vanuatu

Aquana Beach Resort

Swimming pool with water views at Aquana Beach Resort.
Oozing personality, tradition and style, with delightful and spacious bungalows facing a knee-deep lagoon. The tropical feel bursts with a cute cove, calm waters, swinging hammocks and traditional music nights. And the isolation is offset by the vast selection of activities, including kayaking, snorkelling and exploring islets of mangroves.

Erakor Island Resort & Spa

Erakor Island Resort's restaurant is perched right over the water.
Marvellous tropical island ambience among lush gardens. Most villas are as close to the sea as possible; some with a plunge pool, others with an outdoor spa. No resort pool, but superb beaches. And so much to do: snorkelling, nightly entertainment, treatments at the renowned spa, and numerous activities for all. A Crusoe-like getaway – yet remarkably within 10 minutes of Port Vila and 30 minutes from the airport.

Hideaway Island Resort & Marine Sanctuary

The jetty of the Hideaway Island Resort is rustic and welcoming.
Stunning, serene island getaway, with flourishing gardens. Bungalows face the sea, some with direct beach access. Others feature a private pool and spa bath. More rustic options also available for families. Plenty of coral and marine life, and the world’s only underwater post office just offshore. Yet all of this is only 15 minutes from Port Vila.

Iririki Island Resort & Spa

Multi-tiered swimming pool at Iririki Island Resort.
Wow! A tropical island paradise, with so much to do: glorious beaches, wonderful snorkelling, numerous pools, and even a casino. Without being overcrowded, it caters for children (e.g. an engaging kids’ club) and couples (with probably Vanuatu’s most romantic restaurant). Wide range of accommodation includes farés (bungalows) above the water for adults only to self-contained apartments for families. And astoundingly, all within a 3-minute boat ride of the capital.

Mangoes Resort

Multi-tiered swimming pool at Mangoes Resort.
Adults only, so perfect for those who don’t have children or want to hear anyone else’s. Loveable, secluded and spacious bungalows dotted among fruit gardens. A little colonial in design and a lot of Melanesia in décor. All are self-contained, and a few feature a plunge pool. The broad views and trio of communal pools add to the appeal. But a little isolated, with nothing much nearby.

Paradise Cove Resort

The pool at Paradise Cover Resort is surrounded by tropical foliage.
Only 10 traditional-style villas in substantial tropical grounds. Serenity enhanced by deliberate absence of TVs. Spacious, with 1 or 2 bedrooms, a kitchenette, oodles of arts and crafts – but no air-conditioning (overhead fans only). No sandy beach either, but an attractive pool alongside a gorgeous café in the massive nakamal hut. Main drawback is the isolation, with no public transport outside or facilities nearby.

Ramada Resort Port Vila

Some apartments overlook the large pool at Ramada Resort.
Classy, tranquil and sparkling-new, the only largish resort in the suburbs of Port Vila. A very rare beach, yet walkable to downtown. Most rooms face the sparkling pool and lagoon (which resembles a river). All spacious inside, with a kitchen(ette) and extended balcony. An adults-only feel, but caters well for families, with water-sports and daily activities.
