What a great place to recharge your batteries. Richard and Ursula were very helpful with which tours to go on and we weren't disappointed. The beef and cocont crab in the restaurant were delicious. Feeding the fish while waiting for dinner is fun as well. Our Lagoon View room was great and we could sit on our verandah and drink...

What a wonderful place for a gel-out holiday. After 9 weeks touring around Europe (He) decided to take me to Vanuatu for my birthday and we chose Vila Chaumieres as the one. The resort consists of bungalows set in beautiful gardens. The owners Ursula and Richard were really nice and very hospitable, nothing was too much trouble for them. The...

We booked for a meal- what a beautiful place- nice romantic, we had table 4, best table for overlooking the water. The meal was amazing- I have never had such a choice as a vegetarian and the presentation- vegetable coconut curry in the coconut! My husband enjoyed his steak too, presentation and taste of the food the best we had...

Myself and my cousin just spent 5 nights at Vila Chaumieres and loved every minute of our stay. The comfy, roomy bungalows set in beautifully maintained gardens and the restaurant extending over the lagoon made an idyllic base for our island stay. The owners Richard and Ursula went out of their way to make us feel welcome. As neither of...

I have just returned from a fabulous relaxing week at Vila Chaumieres. Ursula and Richard were so helpful, even joining me (a single person) on an excursion. The view, relaxing surrounds, art in the garden (clever Ursula), staff service and meals were the best one ever. Coconut crab and seafood crepes highly recommended! Watching the sealife in the lagoon below...

After reading fantastic reviews only, we booked three nights at Vila Chaumieres for a stay in September. Our rooms were nice and clean, but if you're after al tropical lazy holiday, this is not the right place to stay. The small lagoon beach displayed on their website actually belongs to the neighbours (private) and not accessible by guests. There's a...

Our stay at Vila Chaumieres met all our expectations. Richard and Ursula were great hosts attentive yet not intrusive and very friendly.

What a gem of a place. Nice cute little garden set bungalows, which are actually quite spacious inside. Some upstairs apartments too I believe. I stayed in one of the bungalows - room 3 - and was so impressed with the warm inviting welcome Richard gave me, fresh off the plane, with good advice on how to get there by...
