Perfectly positioned at Port Vila

The capital of Vanuatu and star of the South Pacific, Port Vila is a Polynesian paradise with a distinct European flair. With the Bauerfield International Airport just 10 minutes from the centre, you can settle into your blissful bungalow within moments of landing.

For 5-star style, The Havannah offers an exclusive selection of waterfront, lagoon pool or garden sunset villas within metres of prime snorkelling opportunities. Vanuatu accommodation includes a selection of 4-star hotels too, such as the modern Terraces Boutique Apartments perched above the forest canopy, and the Grand Hotel and Casino boasting breathtaking views over Port Vila Harbour.

More choices on the island of Efate

Vanuatu's main island, Efate, is more than just home to Port Vila. This metropolitan slice of island paradise is draped in emerald countryside, cascading waterfalls and quiet beaches, some only accessible by foot. If you're looking for an escape just beyond the city limits, make your way to the Pango Peninsula where a number of boutique resorts enjoy a quiet existence out of town.

The Kooyu Villas offer unbeatable beachfront privacy, the Pandanus Holiday Apartments award you self-contained luxury for less across their eight boutique units, while Surfside Vanuatu is spacious enough for the whole family, with dwellings ranging from one to four bedrooms.

By the beach on Espiritu Santo

Espiritu Santo is the largest island in Vanuatu and the location of the archipelago's second airport, Pekoa. Santo, as it is sometimes known, lures scuba divers keen to scour the wreck of the SS President Coolidge before retreating to their Luganville hotel after a day in the deep blue.

The Espiritu is arguably the most popular hotel on the island – with all styles of rooms on offer from corporate to family friendly – while further along the coast reveals a handful of beach houses and eco retreats. Off the mainland, the Bokissa Private Island Resort and Ratua Private Island can fulfil your dreams of a deserted island holiday.
