An island Christmas

Guest list, gift list, shopping list, cooking list, wrapping list, card list, drinks list, extras list … does this sound like the usual Christmas preparation at your place? Did we just say Christmas? At this time of year?

If so, we’re sorry, but not sorry.

Let’s face it. Christmas can be a time of stress and the reality is, it’s fast approaching. However, see all those things we mentioned in the opening paragraph? We want to take care of as much of that as we can for you!

We want you to travel with your family and friends and gift yourselves a stress-free Christmas with us, here in sunny Vanuatu, and get something more out of Christmas this year. Sounds tempting, right?

It’s time to break tradition and create new ones. It’s time to ensure every member of your family has a burden free, relaxing holiday over Christmas and to let us do all the work for you.

At Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu, we’re already gearing up for our best festive season yet and we want you to be a part of it.

So in the festive spirit, here are our top six (6) reasons why you should book your Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu Christmas escape now!


1/ The festive feast:

Over the Christmas and New Year period, Resort guests enjoy the perfect mix of island and festive feast tradition. Celebratory gatherings in Vanuatu are big social events that bring everyone together and the food is always amazing. Think South Pacific delights with the right mix of traditional ham and turkey on our carving station and delectable Christmas desserts.

We have other fun family friendly events pre and post Christmas too. You can enjoy our Tuesday night ‘South Pacific Dinner Night’ with a traditional cultural dance. Thursday evening is our amazing ‘Fire Night Dinner’ on the Resort Beach, where you will be treated to a spectacular fire dance performance. Relax, feel the sand between your toes and enjoy our Saturday ‘Night Under the Stars’ dinner event.

New Years Eve in the islands is also something quite special. Join us on the Resort Beach and wander the market food stalls each themed to bring cuisine from different parts of the world. At midnight join us in releasing your very own lantern to welcome the new year.

Various other themed dinners and events will be held throughout the festive season ensuring there is plenty of options, no one is ever bored or has to lift a finger!


2/ Remove the holiday hustle:

We have something for everyone at Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu. It’s the perfect place to bring yourself and the kids, or your entire tribe! But rather than drive around visiting rellies all day and getting all stressed out – rid yourself of the holiday hassle, sorry we meant hustle, and get them to come on your festive island break too. Extend the invitation to Nan, Pop, the cousins, aunts, uncles and inlaws – even your besties! Hosting your Christmas celebration with us means everyone experiences a relaxing, stress free break.


3/ Great accommodation options:

In addition to our beautiful Resort accommodation rooms, we have 10 stunning Overwater Villas on our own private Erongo island.

Looking for a perfect place for just two? We have secluded quiet zones at the Resort that make for an ideal romantic holiday escape.


4/ Activities that will even get Santa excited:

Think fishing tours, diving experiences, hiking, waterfalls, buggy rides, horse riding, blue holes, day-trips to a live volcano, OR spend lazy days and just flop and drop poolside at the Resort and make use of the extensive Resort facilities at our Activities Hub.

Our helpful Resort Hub team can create a holiday itinerary that ensures everyone gets the most out of the festive break.


5/ The kids – think Kids Club + they Stay and Eat for FREE!:

Let’s face it. Sometimes we all need a break and we’re not just talking a break from the kids but a break from mum and dad too! Our Resort Kids Club is the perfect place for your children to enjoy the company of others at the Resort. It’s a place where they make new friends, participate in cool activities and enjoy some good old fashioned kid fun.

Thats not forgetting about our wonderful ‘Kids Stay & Eat FREE’ program. Children aged 12 and below eat breakfast, lunch and dinner without any charge when they dine at any of our restaurants with an adult (excludes special events). Kids also stay for free when sharing their parents’ room.

6/ Create new memories:

Make your Vanuatu Christmas a talking point for years to come. Step away from your regular Christmas traditions and create new memories with us. Our emphasis during this special time is ensuring you get to focus on family fun and togetherness and creating lifelong memories. Memories and quality family time are the best gift anyone can give.
