a bit over rated but! you are still on an island full of coconuts and surrounded by water. However the 1500 vatu you pay to access the island gets eventually taken out of your meals which was just convenient

Although on an island in the harbour, the non-stop boat service means that you are not cut off from anything. Lovely quiet rooms with delightful views, attentive and friendly staff, great facilities for couples and families alike.

We went across for breakfast one morning. Breakfast was good and the deck has a great view. We ended up staying for a couple of hours to use the free snorkels and masks. We had a ball. Would recommend it for a breakfast with a view.

This resort is located on its own island in Port Vila harbour, just a few minutes boat ride from the mainly. We went there for the day and had a very relaxing time. You have to pay VT1500 per person for a day pass, but the cost is used as credit against food & drink. The resort has 2 pools... More

This is at the topend of the resort market - so it has a hefty pricetag. But it is worth every cent as the service is exceptional and the accommodation and facilities 5 staf

We took the 1-minute boat drive from Vila to the Iririki Resort. It has a breathtaking view of the sunset and the food is good. Ideal for relaxing during the weekends and they have a swimming pool next to the spacious restaurant to dive in or just while away the time.

We went to Iririki Island for lunch. The ferry to and from the island was free and pick up/drop off is near the markets in Villa. Each person pays AU$20 entry fee which is refunded when you spend money on the island. Food and service was very average, but the prices was above average.

We only stayed here for one night on our way home from staying at another resort on the island and were pleasantly surprised. The resort is large with two pool areas, great looking snorkelling beach and plenty of bars and even a casino. This is a great family resort with fantastic kids areas but also good for couples. It’s also... More
