Updated: November 26, 2020
Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residences – Finest position in Noumea, close to the sea.
The design is simple, with three elongated curved blocks and minimalist décor. The overwhelming advantages of staying here are two-fold: the wonderful position, facing a large park on a prime corner just meters from the sea, and a dozen cafés, the tourist office, and bus stop to the city all very close by. And of course, the views: all studios and apartments (with one or more bedrooms) feature extended balconies, but views are distant and often blocked by trees. It resembles a French Riviera resort, and there is a pool as well.
Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residences – The Basics
- Location: Faces Promenade Roger Laroque, although the entrance is on a side street, Rue de Boulari. In Anse Vata, a beachside suburb of Noumea on the main island. About 4 km from the city center, 45 minutes from the international airport, and 15 minutes from the domestic airport.
- Guests: Caters well for all: from business people to families on holidays.
- Beach: The beach across the road is narrow, a bit rocky and alongside the noisy esplanade, but decent enough. A quieter and cleaner stretch of public beach is in front of Le Méridien, about 1 km south along the coastline.
- Views: Almost all accommodations face the sea, but views are significantly affected by the distance (often over 100m) and tall trees. Those from the higher floors are probably better.
- WiFi: A reasonable amount of data is offered free per room per day.
- Parking: Free and secure at the on-site parking lot.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.

Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residences – Amenities
- Pool: As the pool is also used by the gym (which is open to the public) for aqua aerobics, it will often be crowded. But views across the park and to the sea are fabulous.
- Spa: Nothing on-site, but a couple of places offer the usual treatments in the arcade under the hotel.
- Fitness Center: Separate well-equipped gyms for males and females (called the Women’s Wellbeing Centre). Both are available to the public.
- Private Pools/Jacuzzis: Not expected in a high-rise block of apartments.
Hilton Noumea La Promenade Residences – Food and Drink
- Restaurant: On the first floor of the Hilton, La Terrasse provides a pleasant tropical setting alongside the pool. It offers chic French cuisine, with daily specials and buffet breakfasts.
- Breakfast: Usually not included, but depends how guests have booked. Special weekend packages often include a buffet breakfast.
- Room Service: Available 24 hours.

- Best Room: Although smaller than the apartments, the King Studios are still spacious and offer the finest possible views. They also feature fully-equipped kitchens, extended balconies, and dining tables.
