We have just returned home from a week at the Havannah. It's a lovely place and so good for relaxing. The sunsets are amazing. The staff are friendly and unobtrusively helpful. We are feeling recharged and ready for a busy year now.

We have stayed at The Havannah 3 times now and it is consistently excellent. It is the most peaceful location in Vanuatu - like a completely different world from the area around Port Vila and much less windy than Eratap. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. It is a bit of a trek...

About 3.5 hours from SYD, simple quarantine and customs, west of Fiji, northwest of New Caledonia, ..., we flew in on a Air Vanuatu B737 (though apparently VLI airport is rated up to A330).
