The Terraces Boutique Apartments
Ranked #15 of 47 Hotels in Port Vila
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Terraces Boutique Apartments are lovely. They have great big comfortable furniture throughout, BOSE sound system for IPOD/PAD docking. Nice little plunge pools come with each one and two bedroom apartment - along with a large free standing bath tub.

We have stayed in apartments from Fiji (HIlton) to Bangkok (Dusit Thani exec) and these apartments were as good as any we've had and better than a lot. They are spacious and well equipped with cookware and so on - I reckon we might have been the first people ever to actually use the oven!

If you like something genuinely comfortable with a ludicrously large bed and giant sofas and cushions - and a private pool then this is well worth the money and overall kind of inexpensive if you compare it internationally. We will stay here again if we are back in Vanuatu. And we're kind of fussy. Liked how much they respected our privacy.

Room Tip: Book a one bedroom or two bedroom apartment - you want your own pool it's really cool to have on...

My husband and teenage daughter had 6 nights at the Terraces over New Year. It is one of the best stays we have ever had! The apartment is large, luxurious, well appointed (including Nespresso) & modern with very large comfy beds. We had the 2-bed (with interconnecting doors) so our teenage daughter had her own flash studio - ensured everyone had ample space, but still heaps of room in the one-bed apartment so everyone could hang out together as well.

It was a short easy walk (10-15 mins) into town but the bus service is east to use to get around (and cheap). Having a restaurant next door at Mangoes was extremely convenient and the food was excellent (wonderful steaks!). We had room service a few times which was great and very reliable All food from Mangoes is charged back to your room. In addition, the kitchen in the apartment had everything we needed for cooking a few nights. Tours could also be booked at Mangoes and charged back to your room.

The management at The Terraces was fabulous. Very responsive, helpful and accommodating. Thanks Callum!

I saved the best til last - the deck with the plunge pool was stunning! It had incredible views over the lagoon and countryside (that changed with light and weather). Fireworks over the lagoon for NYE were incredible. The deck was in shade from lunchtime and provided a very quiet, private and relaxing escape. We would usually venture out in the morning but have the amazing deck to return to each afternoon. Complete with comfortable lounge chairs and chairs - enough for everyone without feeling crowded.

Highly recommend this apartment. We loved it!

Our lounge opened to our infinity plunge pool, completely private due to the cliff a step away. This afforded a fantastic view to the lagoon and its happy shinanigans far far below. Great food next door at the sister resort Mangoes. I would return tomorrow.

My wife and three daughters had an overnight stay in a two bedroom apartment on our way to a resort outside Vila. We arrived after 11 pm and enjoyed a swim in the plunge pool overlooking a lagoon. The apartments are large and are very comfortable and well appointed. They have everything you could want including good quality appliances and a coffee machine. The beds are very comfortable and we had a good sleep.The view overlooking the lagoon and other resorts is lovely. The breakfast at the adjacent Mangoes resort was tasty.

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!
