Villa 25

Reviewed 8 August 2010

We have just returned from a week's stay at Villa 25 and one of the first things we are attending to is writing this review.

We cannot rave enough about how wonderful our stay was - the villas are away from the town, but close enough that the lovely bus driver Kendrick can pop you in and out quickly (shops about 10 minutes drive away). The rooms are beautifully appointed with high ceilings, modern furnishings and huge beds that were very comfortable to sleep in. Each villa even gets their own mobile so that local calls are a breeze.

The shared facilities outside are fantastic - the huge kitchen, bbq, dining and lounge area just make you want to linger all day. That is, when you aren't snorkelling a few steps away from the villas. The snorkelling is fantastic, a huge range of fish and the water temperature is lovely. Apparently August is winter in Vanuatu but you certainly wouldn't know it from the 27 degree temperatures and beautiful sunshine...! The only downside with such an amazing place is that you don't want to leave it...we spent a week with my sister and her partner and didn't venture out at all....except to replenish our supplies.

We did manage to head out for a wedding and checked out a few other high end hotels and we were so glad we chose Villa 25. We highly recommend staying here - it really is paradise. We were exhausted doing absolutely nothing - one of our best holidays ever.

Kerry our host was incredibly accommodating, nothing was too much trouble and the staff were lovely too. Thanks Kerry for a truly wonderful stay.

My husband and I travelled from Perth (Aus)to Port Villa for a getaway from everyday life to spend time together when we found Villa 25 on the Vanuatu Luxury Accommodation website. As far as bang for your buck... outstanding, beds really comfy, up to date design and fittings, easy to get to and from Port Villa and the vista from the apartment is postcard perfect and as it looks on the villa 25 web page. I scoured many websites and nothing really compared for price,standard, location and serenity.Kerry and Nick were the perfect hosts, they really looked after us and the driver (Kendrick)that is used exclusively for Villa 25 is trustworthy and friendly. Amazing snorkling can be done 15m(bring own reef shoes) from your rooms and when we return, this is where we will go to for another wonderful holiday. Well worth the the trip.

A fantastic holiday with a large family ..... we had all three villas
The Pavillion is perfectly located over the swimming pool and beach front
Beautiful setting. Amazing food cooked by a chef every night, that was organised for us. Which was a big highlight as we ate so well and learnt also alot about Vanuatu from the chef. Great massages that come to your Villa and very affordable.
The owners couldn't be more friendly and accommodating, and then especially when our flight was canceled...thank you.

photos to come

Thank you Nick and Kerry for a magical holiday.

Only downside there were a few rainy days as there are in any tropical place.

Ideally located minutes from downtown Port Vila, the 3 Villas are a perfect base for a group of up to 12 ....or equally suited to couples travelling alone.
Great pool, beautiful views, friendly helpful staff.
Recommend getting a rental car for more island viewing......or email ahead with a grocery request if you want to stay put and relax. Managers will do the shopping for you for a small fee.....a great service.

This is still the best place to stay in Vanuatu. It was our second time back to Villa 25 and this time we took some new-bees. We all had the time of our lives. If you want somewhere to stay that is top-class, you can't go past Villa 25. Nick and Kerry are so welcoming and really go the extra mile to ensure your stay in Vanuatu is the best it can possibly be. The facilities are excellent and cater for everything. There is nothing that could be improved upon. It's already perfect! If you want somewhere really nice to stay while you're in Port Vila then Villa 25 is the place to be.

We are a Swedish family who spent a fantastic week in one of the very comfortable and smart looking villas. The location is amazing with good snorkeling right outside the house and with an undisturbed view of the sunset over the bay. The kitchen in the pavilion inspire to cooking and the pool is big enough to allow for good exercise. We can highly recommend this place!

I visited Kerry and Nick at Villa 25 to attend two wonderful cooking classes that they host on a regular basis, which is a fun way to meet new people, learn some new ideas, and enjoy the most spectacular location on the water at Dream Cove.
