“Great little place”
Reviewed 6 February 2014

This place is just out of town, 20 min walk. If you don't want to walk you can always get one of the many buses that drive up and down the main road. Interesting bus journey as you may have to drop off others on the bus along the way and there is no set route, the bus goes where ever the passageners need it to. Supermarket is a 5 min walk away and there are good cooking facilities in the lodge. Staff are very friendly and helpful and it is quiet in he area so you can get a good nights sleep.

Paray Lodge care takers are always there to assist us in everything from location of things around the house and handy for transport. Great Location 10 minutes walk to the Super Market. Lots of opportunity to catch buses on your way to Town. Great communication with the Manager of Paray Lodge and I believe if your looking for a great place surrounded by great people to look after you than i highly recommend Paray Lodge in Number 3 Port Vila.

Room Tip: Family room and single room with more beds for big Family.

We stayed at the paray lodge for 2 nights, one night camping, one night in a bungalow. It is a very friendly and clean place with a great kitchen and a nice bathroom with a proper shower. It's located 10 minutes walk to the centre in a quiet area. The WiFi works good. Would recommend it to family and friends.

We stayed in Paray Lodge for one night. It was the cheapest option in Port Vila that time and I am happy we stayed there.
The room was clean, bright and spacious. It was very comfortable to stay there and relax after the flight. The owners picked us up from the airport at night time and charged less than a taxi. They helped me to find a very cheap bus back to the airport next day.

I really enjoyed the homey feel of this place. The staff are like relatives who are eager to make your visit to Vanuatu memorable. My bunk bed was comfortable and the bathroom down the hallway was clean. Flagging down a bus to go to town was easy, so the distance wasn't an issue. Every morning I woke up to the view of a papaya tree and lush vegetation. Other guests were also very warm and friendly.

Room Tip: Room 2 sleeps 6 and offers a view of the papaya tree

I've spent an overall of five nights in this lovely lodge. Three nights when arriving to Port Vila, one when traveling from the Southern Islands to the Northern ones, and another before leaving Vanuatu.

I will start by simply stating that the price for what you get here makes this place the best deal in town if you are a backpacker, a couple looking for a quiet central apartment or a few friends coming together.

The place has free WiFi, an excellent kitchen, spotless showers and toilet, a nice living room and very comfortable rooms and beds.

Most importantly the staff is always smiling and willing to help (including offering laundry services and keeping some of my stuff while I've traveled around Vanuatu).

In short, I will definitely come back to this place when I will visit Port Villa again.

Highly Recommended
Amit

Quiet and secluded but an easy walk to restaurants and shops in Vila. The staff were very friendly and kept the whole place sparkling clean and tidy. Fresh tropical flowers on the clean linen each day gave the feel of a classy resort but the large kitchen and nearby supermarket meant that self-catering was always an option.
