Back In Business: The Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu

12 May 2016

The Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu will finally reopen its doors on June 1 after a major revitalisation program nearly 15 months after the damage inflicted by Tropical Cyclone Pam.

Boasting exclusive lagoon frontage just minutes from Port Vila town, the resort is a peaceful haven for all travellers with two pool areas, a tennis court, nine-hole golf course, spa, restaurant and two bars.

General manager Simon Douthett says: "We’re excited to 'welkam' and once again create special memories, for both those who have been before and also those who will experience our little piece of paradise for the first time. The tropical natural playground that is Vanuatu makes a stay here ‘nambawan’, as the locals say.

"Whether you’re after a tropical holiday with your family or a romantic getaway, the Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu caters for your every need."
