Brilliantly located right on the beach at Anse Vata. Helpful and friendly staff in all locations throughout the Resort. Having walked the area all the way into Noumea CBD and tested the supposedly two top restaurants (No 4 and No 8) we can say don't bother, stay in the resort for beautiful food and wine. The immediate area around the Resort, i.e. Anse Vata and a bit further at Baie de Citrone have good cafe, boulangiere and supermarche so you can self cater in the Resort apartment style rooms. The swimming pool has a swim up bar and is located on the beach which is also a beautiful white sandy beach with crystal clear blue water
Loved it here!
Sure, the landscaping isn't quite finished but that didn't detract from my stay at all. Actually I probably liked it better because it wasn't over-run with guests and it didn't feel like a massive sterile resort without any character. Also, I'm not really usually a buffet dinner fan but I found this one delicious! The staff were particularly friendly, polite and attentive.
A couple of things I did note :-
1) Bar staff were quite slow with orders, no drama for me but might be a problem when it gets busier?
2) Lagoon was quite choppy when I was there (early Nov) and as a timid snorkeler it put me off swimming out past the seagrass to the coral. Very happy sitting by the pool though and there were boat tour options available.
There were so many good aspects (comfy bed, great cocktails, great pool, yum food) I can't list them all - I would absolutely recommend a visit and would love to go back! :-)
We had a wonderful time here and would highly recommend it to families wanting to save some money by self catering. The view from the balcony was spectacular and it was close to everything. The staff were very helpful & our kids loved the pool & the snorkelling across the road!
