Paradise Cove Resort
Ranked #1 of 47 Hotels in Port Vila
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 May 2014

My mother and I needed accommodation quickly in Vila. Constance replied speedily to my email and even telephoned me back in Australia to set up our visit. She met us in the early hours of the morning, in the middle of a downpour. We were both made to feel very welcome and found the experience to be very relaxing. The resort was beautifully out of the main drag, the rooms were exceptionally clean and all of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was great and situated right at the water. Transport in and out of town was easy to arrange and the wine list was impressive. Next time, I'll be there with my husband. We're already looking forward to it. Thanks to Constance, Marc, Benjamin and all the team at Paradise Cove.

Room Tip: Constance didn't mind altering the sleeping arrangements in our room to suit us.

What an absolutely wonderful place to visit, from the moment I reached out for some information, throughout our and stay to getting a cab to the airport was a truly memorable holiday. Marc and Constance were very quick to reply to emails which made the booking seamless, all staff are a joy to be around and are a credit to Paradise Cove. The food was divine, the facilities (kayaks, games, diving, romantic meal on the jetty, tours etc) great and the on site masseuse to die for!
I think the thing we most loved about Paradise Cove was the relaxed, quiet environment, it wasn't like any other resort on the island, in fact I don't like to call it a resort - to me a resort is a chain type accommodation, whereas Paradise Cove felt like a home away from home, with a definite feel of local Vanuatu, I think the staff add to this, everyone from security, the bar staff to the cleaners were a joy to be around and couldn't help you enough.
I have and will continue to recommend Paradise Cove to anyone who wants to visit Efate

The only bad part of our trip was that it was for only 5 nights. Despite this we left feeling like we had had the most amazing break in a very undiscovered little part of real Paradise. This is definitely our type of holiday; it was like being in a private home without having to do any if the daily stuff and very far away from the big tourist resorts. Paradise Cove is very relaxed and peaceful with amazing snorkelling and kayaking literally 100 metres from your bungalow!

The staff are so amazing and by the end of our stay you really felt like you were part of the family. We really can't speak highly enough about how well we were looked after, absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We were travelling to celebrate my friends 'special' birthday and thanks to the team at Paradise Cove that is exactly what it was. They even went to the trouble of setting up a special table out not the jetty for her birthday dinner which was absolutely wonderful. We ate nearly all our meals at Paradise Cove as it was so good that there was no need to go anywhere else.

The accommodation is all newly renovated traditional style bungalows, they are set in really beautiful gardens that are beautifully maintained. Make sure you check out the new outdoor shower it is fantastic!

We so look forward to visiting again

Paradise Cover Resort is a true paradise.
You will find yourself in a boutique resort that make you feel like you are one of the truly blessed people to have been lucky enough to find a holiday destination away from all of the stresses of civilization.

Marc and Constance are the perfect hosts who welcome you wholeheartedly to their little piece of paradise.

This resort is for those who wish to escape, relax and enjoy the simple things in life without the hassle or crowds. It is most definitely not your pre-packaged hotel-room type holiday.

It is unique and special in a way that the larger resorts could never be.

We have just returned from 10 days at Paradise Cover Resort where we held our wedding. We booked the entire resort for 5 days and had our family and friends stay to celebrate our wedding over the week.

Marc and Constance organized our wedding and words cannot express what a wonderful job they did. Constance organized the celebrant, cake, menu, flowers, babysitters, table decorations etc. She presented a truly beautiful wedding with little input from myself. Marc took a special trip into town to source fireworks for the wedding which were an absolute hit with the guests and local villagers alike.

The staff were super friendly and very helpful and I cannot compliment them enough.

This was our second visit to Paradise Cover Resort after being day trippers there last year. The renovations so far are a credit to Marc and Constance. It is a beautiful resort and we will be back again next year.

Lukim us Bakaken soon. :)

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Paradise Cove Resort in Vanuatu. Marc and Constance have done some wonderful renovations to the bungalows and the gardens over the 'cyclone season' and the resort is better than it has been!The staff continue to be so friendly and helpful it feels like a lovely home away from home. We swam with dolphins just off the jetty where the fish are amazing! We will return very soon!!

In March 2014 we returned to Paradise cove for the second time. We loved our first family holiday at Paradise cove three years ago but this time it was exceptional. The improvements that have been made by the new owners have given the resort a warm and sophisticated facelift whilst still maintaining it's indigenous and cultural charm. The accommodation is pleasurably comfortable with modern appliances. Each bungalow is beautifully decorated with local art, quality linen and pillows, comfortable beds, timber ceiling fans and fresh flowers daily. Beyond the bungalow the grounds and gardens have been manicured and maintained with meticulous attention to detail right down to the to the jetty where you can launch yourself into the crystal clear ocean. The reef right in-front of the resort is up there with the best on the island with visibility up to 10meters +.
At 5pm you will hear the echo of beating drum, which means it's time to swim back to shore, rinse off in the coral made out door shower that bathes you via a bamboo spout and join the rest of the guests at the resorts impressive "Nakamal" (meeting place) for a drink and a chat. Once you have had dinner cooked by one of Vanuatu's best chefs, be sure to hang about and enjoy the setting. The sunsets are some of the best I've ever seen and be sure to look up at the brilliant night sky. Paradise Cove is definitely a destination I would recommend for so many different reasons but above all it's what a holiday should be, perfect for families, couples or friends. Giovanni, Rosa & Family

Room Tip: All rooms are at equal distance from the beach, and all have been designed to secure your privacy.
