This resort enjoys a waterfront position on Vanuatu’s Erakor Lagoon and features a series of overwater villas opposite the main hotel’s sandy beach. From the moment you enter the vast lobby with its soaring Melanesian-style roof, you know you’re in the tropics and the experience is only enhanced as you move towards the pool and lagoon with its sailboats and kayaks.

In addition to the two restaurants – the Verandah and the Pool Bar – there’s the Namale Day Spa which combines traditional remedies with French therapies.
