Places to Stay in Port Vila, Vanuatu

By Aulden Warbrooke And Jade Lee Posted 19 May 2016

In our last piece from our trip to Vanuatu, we give you an insight into the accommodation that we were treated to. No doubt – they were all amazing and something we would have no qualms about returning to.

Grand Hotel and Casino

Port Vila has a wide range of accommodation options to suit all travellers and budgets. Of our six-night stay in Port Vila, the first two were spent at the lavish Grand Hotel and Casino. The hotel is hard to miss with its towering structure overlooking magnificent views of Port Vila Harbour. A glass of wine watching the sunset from our high- rise patio was the perfect way to relax after a long day of adventure.

The service was most commendable along with a great range of breakfast and dinner options. The famous Vanuatu beef is a must try as the chefs grill it to absolute perfection. It will definitely challenge all your ‘best steak’ experiences. The location, class and elegance of this hotel make it a fantastic accommodation option.

Warwick Le Lagon Resort & Spa

Warwick Le Lagon Resort & Spa is only a ten minute drive from Port Vila’s main town centre. If resort style accommodation is more your preference then this would be the perfect choice, especially for families and couples. The views out to Erakor Lagoon are breathtaking. They have a wide range of kids and adult activities so there is always something exciting to do.

Our stand alone bungalow accommodation was perfect and a welcome change from our usual room accommodation. The local band that played during the Saturday night buffet dinner was understated and truly deserving of celebrity status. The perfect way to spend our last evening in Port Vila.

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace is truly a unique place to stay. It is the newest accommodation provider in Port Vila. It opened in early March this year with an enthusiastic team that were welcoming and keen to ensure our stay was comfortable. The hotel is small but is located prominently on the foreshore overlooking Mele Bay which gives guests in ocean view rooms, a magnificent view.

There is a restaurant in the hotel that serves authentic Chinese cuisine. However, other food options are conveniently only a short distance walk from the hotel. Although it has only come from small beginnings, Crystal Palace is sure to attract its own clientele and flourish.

In the words of our Vanuatu hosts, “Tankyu tumas” (Thank you sincerely) for reliving this journey with us. We hope your stories and experiences of Port Vila will be just as wondrous and memorable as ours!
