Vanuatu Accommodation

Accommodation in Port Vila is as varied as her landscape. There is a certain rustic charm in sleeping under a natangora thatched roof, with walls and floors made of coral. If high rise accommodation is your thing, then the views over the harbour will please you. The reminders of a British and French rule from the past are evident in some of the older styles of accommodation. As Port Vila grows it attracts new investors who are building new, fresh and luxurious beach side resorts. Nearby islands offer private, peaceful and unique accommodation and more budget conscious options are also available. Whether you are travelling alone, with your partner, a family, friends or colleagues, you will find the perfect accommodation solution for you somewhere in Vanuatu.

Vanuatu Conference Resorts

Each year more businesses and companies are choosing Vanuatu as a venue to host their conferences, incentives and events as the travel from Australia and New Zealand is direct and with flying time just over 2 hours it’s a great choice for those last minute conferences where you just need to get the team away for three or four days. Many resorts offer competitive conference packages that include accommodation and food and a unique cultural atmosphere within which to conduct business. A novel idea for large groups is to spread their events across a number of the resorts and function centres. Often travelling from one venue to another by boat, ferry or car, this concept contains a certain element of surprise.

Resorts are only too happy to provide wedding planners and celebrants, hair and beauty services, floral arrangements, music, food, drinks and decorations. For that special touch, replace the traditional walk up the aisle with a canoe trip across the lagoon with a local Ni Vanuatu chief. Whatever your needs, your Vanuatu resort or hotel will be only too happy to accommodate them.
