There’s a simple equation for getting an adults only-resort right – privacy, service and food.
Breaka’s Beach Resort in Port Vila also happens to be set on a magnificent white sand and coral beach and enjoys stunning sunsets and now, thanks to famed Brisbane chef Mario Alfieri (formerly of The Dining Room, Hendra), five star dining.
Mario is the executive chef-come assistant manager-come entertainer. He greets all guests like old friends and if you’re lucky may even serenade you after cooking what will be, without doubt, the best Italian food in the South Pacific.
Breaka’s Resort offers waterfront dining, perfect for romantic evenings as well as weddings and other functions.
Mario’s food is fresh, with local seafood and Vanuatu’s renowned beef on the menu.
However it’s his Italian fare including mouth-watering buffalo cheese, air freighted regularly from Italy that keeps diners returning night after night.
And he’s quick to point out his cheese isn’t just any old Italian cheese – the best buffalo cheese comes from within 70 miles of Rome. Anything else is a poor substitute, he says.
Mario’s seafood marinara is known as the best ever and comes with prawns, mussels, fish, lobster – enough of a meal in itself, but it’s the sauce that my companions were raving about.
Don’t miss the eggplant parmigiana either.
