Lovely isolated location, beautiful setting. Unfortunately our first bungalow had a broken A/C and no hot water, they did move us to another but then 2 mornings in a row we woke up with no running water. Very inconvenient with a young child.

lovely beach bungalows on a beautiful lagoon

Pros: Lovely rooms and beautiful location on a lagoon. In better weather a couple of nights would have been well worthwhile.
Cons: Sunny warmer weather.
Location: swimming, snorkelling, kayaks, & exploring the northern tip of New Caledonia
Malabou is at the very north of New Caledonia and is quite isolated. The drive from Noumea up the west coast can be done in one day but it would be better to take a break half way at say the Sheraton Deva Resort near Bourail. Eating out everywhere in New Caledonia is expensive and uninspiring. At Malabou there is really no other choice but the resort. We drove down the east coast, which is quite an adventure. Hienghene is spectacular and a definite over night stay. The trip is spoilt by trying to go back to Noumea all the way from Malabou in one day. Much too far on narrow windey roads especially at night with locals in a hurry to get home. There are plenty of lovely picnic spots, so next time I would buy a baguette, salad and cheese at a local shop. There was even one spot with an honour system for hiring Kayaks.

Malabou again

Pros: Excellent staff, new bungalows are really good, great food, best in class
Cons: complete the upgrades, additional television channels
Location: About 5 hours north of Noumea. Very tranquil. Clean sandy beaches.
If you want the full 5 star experience, this is not for you. 6th visit over 3 years. This is an excellent retreat, in idyllic surrounds. Excellent smorgasbord meals, great staff and service. The revamped bungalows are a real improvement. Beach, pool and bar all excellent. Staff have good communication skills and manage the french english thing very well. Better than most in New Caledonia
