Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu Review: The Best Family Resort In Efate!

28 March 2018

Opened in 2010, the Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu is a 4-star premier resort located just 2 kilometres from downtown Port Vila and 12 kilometres from Vanuatu‘s Bauerfield International Airport. The resort covers an area of 60 acres and sits on colourful, natural tropical gardens on the edge of the serene Erakor Lagoon.


A happy family enjoying their time at Resort Vanuatu


It is a great place to base yourself whilst you explore all that Efate Island has to offer!  We stayed there as a family of 5 and found that both the rooms, as well as the resort grounds, had everything that we could possibly need for our Vanuatu family holiday.  We stayed in a few other resorts around Efate as well and found that Holiday Inn was our pick as one of the best Vanuatu resorts for families.  Find more information about why we loved this resort so much in our Holiday Inn Vanuatu review below.

Our Holiday Inn Vanuatu Review of our Stay

Find below helpful information about our family stay at Holiday Inn Vanuatu to help you decide whether this is the right resort for your Vanuatu holiday.


The Welcome at Holiday Inn Vanuatu

The lobby is the ideal welcome when guests arrive. We thoroughly enjoyed our special native welcome via means of the shell horn.  The kids received handmade headband and special shell necklaces were placed around our necks.  We were given a delicious and refreshing coconut welcome drink, which we enjoyed in their tranquil bar area before checking in.

The Beautiful Room and Thoughtful Amenities

All of the rooms in the resort exudes a charming Melanesian ambiance that is reflected in the local materials and architecture used in its design.
