We just returned from an amazing vacation at the Havannah - cyclone experience and all. We went diving, relaxed at our lagoon villa, enjoyed a picnic on a private beach, got evacuated because of a cyclone and relaxed on a sunset cruise. The place is well managed by Frederick. We saw him daily, and he made sure to do all...

A beautiful place to stay if you're looking for luxurious rest and relaxation. With only around 20 rooms it is small enough that all the staff know your name. With an adults only policy and so few guests there is always a sense of calm, happy, islander feel which makes relaxing easy. The restaurant is nice with a range of...

Very good location, the sea view and the beach are perfect if comparing to other resorts or hotels in Port Vila. Their restaurant offers very good food and nice environment, with friendly and helpful staff. Our villa with private plunge pool is perfect for couple. There were lot of things to do when we stayed in there so no worry...

Celebrated 10 year wedding anniversary. 4 days of perfection. Crystal clear water, beautiful reef, snorkeling, water sports and some of the most personalized amazing service you will ever experience. The resort can only have about 34 guests so it is genuine personal service. Everyone greets you by name and they are so nice it really makes for an outstanding visit....

The biggest problem with this resort is that it is priced as a top notch 5-star place, while in reality it is ok 4 star resort. And I certainly didn't expect to fight cockroaches in the room every day while paying well into 4 digits for a few nights during honeymoon. If you are a huge fan of secluded places...

Dear Georgiy K Thank you for your review. We have in place a very good pest control program, done monthly by professional pest controllers, however, we cannot stop insects flying into the villas, and we provide pesticide spray in each villa just in case this happens. We are on a tropical island in the middle of the pacific surrounded by...

We stayed here on our honeymoon and we were very impressed with the room, staff and location. It's all beautiful. The only downside was my new Husband got food poisoning pretty bad and it kind of ruined the trip for us. I spoke to management about it and they blew it off as a stomach bug- he had no fevers...

The Havannah has absolutely stunning views, so peaceful and relaxing. Staff are so friendly, food is amazing and rooms are beautiful. Would definitely recommend an ocean view villa and the boat trip to a secluded island for drinks and lunch!

We chose March as a good time to visit Vanuatu as the weather was similar to FNQ where we have been living. The wet in Vanuatu was well underway and days varied from brilliant sunshine and torrential tropical rain and storms....but the advantage was that the island has not yet hit its season and was relatively quiet. Havannah is situated...
