Amazing Resort

Pros: Everything we needed was at the resort! The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was everything we wanted. No kids was a great bonus!
Cons: Nothing. Our experience was wonderful
Location: Turtle Sanctuary, tandem kayaking, frolicked in the ocean, snorkelling on the reefs, pool, local Kava tour, spa and massage treatments, ziplining
We stayed at The Havannah Resort for 4 nights, and it was nothing short of perfect! So tranquil, quiet and relaxing. The staff we extremely helpful, friendly and courteous. The rooms were clean, spacious and our villa was right on the waterfront. The food and drinks were delicious. We had everything we needed at out fingertips for the most amazing getaway.

We spent 7 nights at the Havannah for our honeymoon and we had the best time. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Gorgeous view to wake up to each morning and superb location - you can do as much or as little as you want, great place for a relaxing holiday.

Tranquil Location for a Romantic Holiday - Bliss!

Pros: The mgmt & staff seemed genuinely concerned that we enjoy our stay. They remembered all the guests' names, made us feel like family, laughed a lot.
Cons: Our meals were excellent or very good - maybe the menus could be less extensive, have more light options? Salads, risottos? Breakfast was fantastic!
Location: There are loads of things to do - either in Havannah Harbour itself or elsewhere in Efate, or other islands altogether. We had intended to do a lot...
We have just returned from an 8 night stay at The Havannah, our first visit to Vanuatu. We were after a stress-free environment and this adults only resort was precisely what we had hoped for - 18 free-standing villas and a maximum of 36 guests at any one time. We stayed in a waterfront villa with our own plunge pool just above the turquoise sea. In the early mornings we could see fish in the clear water below us swimming & jumping; on one occasion a stingray leaped out of the water, and on our final day we saw not only a tortoise but also a mother and baby dugong, which we had been looking out for all week. Our villa was handsomely furnished with plenty of space in and out, including a suspended queen-sized daybed outside for reading or dozing in the breeze and two sun-loungers. It was spotlessly clean and the room was made up each day and bed turned down each evening. It suited us to spend our days relaxing - reading, cocktails at sunset, swimming & snorkeling (free masks & flippers), a picnic on another island with a coral reef, a day-trip to Port Vila, lots of siestas. Each night we had the choice of dining in the restaurant, on the grass under the lamp-lit tree, down on the beach with a BBQ and bonfire, on the jetty - or having room service. We had intended to book a massage at the spa, take advantage of the free kayaks & catamarans, enjoy the complimentary 90 minute sunset cruise, visit any amount of fabulous other highlights in Vanuatu...next time, soon!
