“A fan-tast-ic memory”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

My husband and I needed to get away from a year of hard work - what a great location away from Port Vila nestled on the water very peaceful and tranquil. A small resort with the best restaurant food to die for. Ursula and Richard always willing to help and organise anything you need. They organised a van (bus) and driver for the 2 of us to drive around the Efate island stopping at the hot spots or where we wanted to stop

Richard and Ursula were the perfect hosts, being our first time to Vanuatu we we're extremely happy to have come across such a lovely place. They were more than happy to recommend and organise the best attractions Vanuatu had to offer.
The staff were very friendly nothing was a problem for any of them ( especially a young lady Pauline ).
The food was delicious and was always presented lovely, ( the crab is as tasty as they say) the complimentry breakfast was an added bonus.
Our room was spacious and very private, and our bed very comfortable.
If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing, gorgeous food, hassle free accommodation then look no further Vila Chaumieres is the place to stay.
Thanks once again Richard and Ursula we wish you all the best.

It's a very nice, small, quiet hotel not too far away from town. The room we stayed in overlooked the lagoon and was cosy. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. The best part was their food! The seafood platter is a must-try!

What a gem! Stayed 3 weeks during Feb/March and could not have been happier. Fabulous location on the lagoon, delicious food, great accommodation. Hosts Ursula and Richard and their friendly staff helped us arrange transport, organise a picnic and readily catered to our vegetarian palates. The complimentary breakfast consisted of a varied selection of fresh fruits which we occasionally supplemented with croissants and jam. The stunning location and quality of food and service meant that the award-winning restaurant was well-patronised by visitors and locals at night. Accommodation exceeded our expectations, with the garden bungalows both spacious and private. Having stayed at the much larger resorts of Le Lagon and Iririki in previous years, Vila Chaumieres wins hands down.

We stayed at Vila Chaumieres for 2 weeks over Christmas but have only now had the chance to write our review. We can't say enough about Vila Chaumieres. It was wonderful, quite intimate and set in beautiful gardens right on the lagoon. We stayed in the lagoon view room that was comfortable and very clean with everything we needed. Many afternoons were spent on the balcony relaxing and enjoying the view.

The restaurant is also excellent (make sure you book). Breakfasts over the lagoon watching the fish and starfish was a treat. Breakfast was included with lovely fresh fruit and croissants and the staff were all friendly. Ursula and Richard were amazing hosts who couldn't do enough for you. We felt we had known them for a long time.

Thanks Ursula and Richard for a wonderful holiday, we will be back at Easter!

My partner and I have just returned from a trip to Vanuatu and spent our days in Port Vila at the Vila Chaumieres. It exceeded expectation, even after reading the good reviews. The owners Richard and Ursula were extremely friendly and did anything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The garden bungalows were big and spacious and surrounded by beautiful gardens. The restaurant was all its talked up to be, make sure you book, but in saying that it is still very intimate and the breakfast included was amazingly delicious fruits and croissants! Really fantastic overall.
Will be coming back as well as recommending it to anyone going there!

A local friend introduced us the the restaurant. 3 of us had dinner here. You sit on the lagoon ... Very secluded place, on the water, marine life under you... Quite spectacular . We had the beef Wellington and it was PERFECT! our friend had some fish and also it was great. Service good and price as expected in Vanuatu when you want to eat nice meals in a nice location. Worth the money and the experience. We got to meet the friendly owners and their cat. That was a bonus on our way out. Definitely a place to visit if you are in Vila.
