This luxury hotel was revamped a couple of years ago and is stylish, immaculate, and perfectly sited directly on the beach. Rooms are large and spacious with large kitchen and full size fridge permitting self catering. Service was always courteous, prompt and we had absolutely no problems during our stay. The staff and our fellow guests (mostly French) were very friendly, and people dressed well and there was an air of sophistication about the place. Breakfast was generous, and never crowded. The lagoon outside allows you to walk out or snorkle directly onto the reef.
We spent one night in a garden bungalow which was nice, a little bit dated but decent size and had everything we needed. We then spent another night in an overwater bungalow which was fantastic and would definitely stay in one again. Staff were expecting us when we arrived and had drinks to welcome us and all the paperwork for our booking ready. Boat transfers were also well organised.
Great location, we were lucky enough to snorkel with turtles twice in the water just under the bungalows and went jetskiing on two of the days just off the island.
Were given a 50% off dinner voucher which was great and food was good and plentiful - loads of seafood and a grill where they cook meats at your request. Breakfast buffet was included in both our room bookings and was a great way to start the day with omelettes or pancakes made to order and a wide range of other stuff.
Great to be able to get a island getaway so close to Noumea.
The hotel has a very good place, on the most beautiful bay of Noumea : Anse Vata. The bus stop is just at the front of the hotel. A lot of shops and restaurants around (and tourism /information point). The people at the reception are very relevant, welcoming and kind. The room are comfy and clean. So very good hotel !
I have spent a very good stay here. Just one thing is not like on the photo, is the swimming pool, it is small, not huge like on the photos but enough, i was not here for the swimming pool ;)
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! :-)
Very clean, Modern, convenient to Beach 25 meters and Bus stops and further up the Bay to shops Bars Restaurants etc.
Staff are very helpful and efficient.
Some little Blue Metal Table and 2 chairs on the Balcony would have been nice (and good visual Publicity) for the Hotel as the Patio is seen by the Beach people.
I recommend this Hotel.
We stayed two weeks.
