Whether it was eating in their dining table or drinking cocktails by the pool, the staff were very attentive and I was never left hungry nor thirsty. Great place, delicious food, phenomenal cocktails and the best service. Would recommend and return!

If you are looking for the most tender and delicious steak you would be hard pushed to find better.Large, juicy and tender with a choice of sauces.Avoid the vegetables(frozen) but salad and Kumara chips are nice!Tapas was also good. Really good service,nothing too much trouble!

Our Guarantee is that "Everyone who leaves our establishment, does so with a new happy Coconut Palms memory".Since opening in 2005, Multi Award winning Coconut Palms Resort’s Head Chefs have been lucky to work with a variety of Chefs from around the world. Each have offered exciting contributions to our Menu utilising local wholesome ingredients. The result, is a wide array of culinary flavours and dish types from Vanuatu Steak, Fish & Lobster through to classical Italian gourmet. The Italian traditional selections include both pasta and pizza recipes that have been passed down for many generations. Also traditional, is our unique range of Vanuatu Tappa’s which is a world first for Vanuatu Dining. Already the subject of glossy international Magazine feature articles, the Menu glorifies traditional Melanesian recipes from around the island nation. All dishes use a base of Coconut milk and Navara, baby coconut. The dishes are purely traditional or completely new creations developed over a six month project that included outstanding local Vanuatu Chefs that concluded with the Tappa’s Blong Vanuatu launch on Jamie Oliver’s World Food Day.
