Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Noumea – Stylish, handy, tranquil, and more affordable than the beachfront resorts.
The two towers with rooms, studios and suites are slightly away from the beach. Despite the distance, views of the sea are still wonderful; even better are those of the hippodrome, a colonial-era horse racing track around a lake with a misty mountain backdrop. Because the towers are round, room layouts can be unusual, but they’re all spacious and well-appointed with some lovely Melanesian décor. The pool is a surprise: resort-style, with sandy edges lined with palms. And bonuses for some are the free parking and golf driving range opposite.
Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Noumea – The Basics
- Location: 7 Rue Louis Bleriot, opposite the hippodrome in Anse Vata, a beachside suburb of Noumea on the main island. The carpark entrance is about 300m up from the Hilton hotel complex which faces the esplanade. About 5 km from the city center, 50 minutes from the international airport, and 12 minutes from the domestic airport.
- Guests: Caters well for holiday makers and business people. Some apartments feature kitchens and 2 or 3 bedrooms.
- Beach: The public beach is about 300m down the street. The beach is narrow, a little rocky and noisy from the esplanade traffic, but reasonably scenic and calm. A quieter and cleaner stretch of public sands is in front of Le Méridien, about 1 km south of the Ramada via the coast (not the road).
- Views: All rooms boast superb views – of the sea (albeit distant) or (better) the hippodrome and mountains.
- WiFi: A reasonable amount of data is provided free per day per room.
- Parking: Secure and free in a multi-level private carpark.
- How to Book: Booking.com will have the best rates.
