We have just returned home from our holiday to Vanuatu, we went there for a relaxing time away and this places certainly delivered!! The rooms were lovely and always a great temperature. Always clean and very well kept! The pool was gorgeous and the hammock by the pool was so comfortable for an afternoon relax. We ate in the restaurant...

My partner and I with two teenagers dined at Vila Chaumier. What a surprise when we walked through the romantic tree lined pathway down to the lagoon. The restaurant is perfectly located on a peaceful lagoon in a romantic setting that would equal any location in the world. There is a good selection of food and was welcomely received and...

The missus and I had a great 5 night stay here, beautiful gardens and dining out on the water was very nice. Rooms are clean and tidy. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Great value for money and a good decision to stay abit out from the town as it's an easy $1.50 bus ride into town.

From the moment we arrived Ursula and Richard were superb and accommodating hosts. The food was excellent and the gardens were simply stunning. The room was also top class. All in all as a full package Villa Chaumieres is an excellent place to stay. S Attwood

Stayed 4 nights at V/C in the lagoon view room above the resturant. Beautiful well maintained gardens throughout & private pool for guests who like a swim. Owners are pleasant & can help book local tours and transport if you request. Our room was clean with basic amenities, unfortunately loud in the mornings early from underneath us. Did have problems...

It is three years since we have dined here...how can one fall so far? With only 3 tables (7people) in attendance it took one hour and ten minutes for food to arrive (after complaining). The standard of food has dropped from excellent to just above average. The standard of service from top class to less than 3 star. The venue...

Ursula and Richard were such great hosts for our very short time in Port Vila. They were extremely friendly and very helpful given that our original stay was shortened with all of the Virgin Australia issues and cancelling flights. All of the staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome and nothing was an issue. The bungalows are...

We went for dinner after recommendations from staff at our nearby hotel. We ordered the chicken liver pate, seafood plate for 1 and the coconut crab. The food was amazing. So much crab we couldn't finish it. We had the place to ourselves in a nice quiet setting.
