The Terraces has everything you need to relax and enjoy Vanuatu's offering!

The rooms are fantastic - complete with beautiful furnishings, large bath with water that comes from the ceiling, and a plunge pool in each apartment. The restaurant at the hotel is excellent (the Vanuatu beef was a real highlight) and each apartment has a kitchen which is great for if you don't want to eat out every meal.

The privacy at the Terraces was a real plus - unlike many places where you see other guests from your room the Terraces are totally private.

The staff were very friendly and happy to recommend restaurants, tours and taxis. We had some great trips out for lunch and snorkelling and local market visits.

This stay at the Terraces was by far my most relaxing tropical holiday! We will be back!

My husband and I stayed in the Terraces for ten days in August and we were blown away by the open space and beautiful views provided. It was the perfect space to unwind and enjoy a glass of French wine after exploring the surrounds of Port Vila.
The Nespresso machine and private plunge pool got plenty of use especially while we got over jet lag.
The air was sometimes smokey from the nearby residents burning off rubbish but this seemed to be common practice around the island.
The room service and food at Mangoes (the restaurant attached to the resort) was on par with the other good restaurants we ate at on our trip and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to have a game of tennis.
One of the highlights of The Terraces is the infinity pool that looks over the lagoon.
We will definitely be recommending The Terraces to our friends.

Just back from an amazing 5 nights at the Terraces in Port Vila, Vanuatu. The rooms are fantastic and the service was excellent. The private plunge pool was well-used but we really loved the day bed in the main pool - what a place for a champagne breakfast, with panoramic views right across the second lagoon! The Terraces provide a fantastic base to visit the sites and restaurants around Efate ...we ventured out during the morning then returned to relax in the luxurious room and plan the evening activities. The best of both worlds really! We ate dinner in the restaurant twice and could have had every meal there, such was the quality and diversity of the menu, but also wanted to sample some other venues - there are so many around Port Vila we were spoilt for choice (I can really recommend Eratap for lunch). We'll be back again next year - early December is a great time to go if you like some serenity, given it seems to be a quiet time in Vanuatu. Ask hosts Dave and Ros for some ideas for activities - whether you want to be active or just relax and recharge, the Terraces is the place to go!! Thanks for a great holiday!

My wife and I stayed at The Terraces for a week and could not fault the experience. The apartment was impeccably presented with great touches like your own Nespresso machine, and a plunge pool right outside on the deck. The Terraces is in a league of its own in Port Vila. When we were returned their after the many tours we took up, guests from other hotels in the van were very envious of our accommodation.
The staff were very friendly, and the meals from the restaurant were among the best we tasted in Vanuatu. I highly recommend this place!

I had the pleasure of spending my Honeymoon at The Terraces....and WOW. This place is heaven on earth! The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food was 5 star, so so delicious, & the facilities were top notch. The view from our room, and the communal pool was stunning. Our room was so lush, we felt so spoiled. It has everything you need. I would want anyone and everyone to experience The Terraces, it was so beautiful and relaxing, the perfect way to start married life!

Can really recommend this place. Very clean and comfortable, has everything you need and more.
The attention to detail is wonderful and the views are lovely over the lagoon. Would be even better if built on the beach, but has a lovely pool.
Staff are very friendly and nothing is any trouble.
