Turtles at your doorstep and delightful snorkelling made our three days in an overwater bungalow wondrous. It's a low key vibe so don't go if you need nightlife but the understated facilities and spacious bungalow were perfect for us. Grab a few supplies for your fridge before catching the ferry if you want to enjoy your own private sunset drinks... More

Ok, after just returning from 4 nights at this resort I am going to start with the positives ... Easy to get to from Sydney for a short break; absolutely stunning location with beautiful clear water and some good snorkelling - right off your over water bungalow steps; we saw turtles every day, incredible coloured fish, bright blue giant starfish...

This resort was lovely, definitely a nice island escape. The place was quite overpriced, especially the food which was not up to standard for the amount we paid for it. The pool area was lovely but a lot of people who came to the resort for the day were using it, even though it says it's reserved for hotel guests.... More

We are regular cruises, and like everyone else, didn't care for the port stop at Noumea at all. This cruise we did something different and caught a water taxi over to Escapade island.
