Just got back from a couple week stay at the Seachange Lodge. I have been to Port Vila six times in the last 10 years and have stayed in many hotels over the years. The Seachange Lodge was by far the best hotel I have ever stayed in there. The new owner Ian is an impeccable host and will bend over backwards to make your stay as easy and memorable as possible. He offers transfers to and from the airport for fair prices. My friends and I stayed in the Lodge and the Chalet while there. Both are excellent places to stay and are a home away from home with air conditioning, refrigerators and hot water. The grounds and the rooms were very clean. Never saw one bug inside the rooms. These rooms are not far from town but they are free of road noise, the sounds of barking dogs, or the smell of burning garbage. The property overlooks a beautiful lagoon and has a kayak you can take out. The center of town is just a short bus ride away for around US$1.50 per person or it is walkable. The nicest supermarket around is a few blocks away. We walked there daily. And of course there are many kava bars nearby if you like kava. You may even get the owner Ian to go out and drink kava with you if you ask nicely. If you are looking for a home like place to stay in Vila the Seachange Lodge is the best option I have seen and the price is very reasonable. Lukim yu!

Once again our waterside chalet was wonderful. The new owner, Ian was extremely helpful and obliging. A very good base near Port Vila if you don't want to stay in a larger resort. Easy walk (15 minutes) or bus ride every few minutes to town, supermarkets and bakery very close. Great fun to use the little motorised dinghy to explore the lagoon and visit Erakor Island. We can recommend.

Ian was a great host and the units were great value for money spacious and very clean. I arrived at midnight and Ian picked me up and could not do enough to help. The lagoon villa was great - quiet and has a great outlook over the water.

Room Tip: Go for the upgrade to the lagoon front room.

I got intouch with ian before arriving to port vila as i planned to propose to my girlfriend there, he was more than helpfull. First off he met us at the airport and when we arrived at the lodge he had upgraded us to the waterside chalet for the whole week. Along with the constant help he provided over the next few days this just made the proposal unforgettable. Sea change is in a great spot and if you let ian know your plans he will ring round up amd het you booked in places for dinner/on trips as he seems to know everyone whos anyone. I would definately recommend staying here and you will not be dissapointed!

Like someone else said, we were also met at the airport so right away there was no confusion or anxiety in a new country. Very pleasant owner. Close to the airport and beautiful inside and out. Both rooms we stayed in were spacious, clean, comfortable and gorgeous views. Surrounded by lush trees and the lagoon, really felt a mile away from my desk job! Wifi available so was able to stay in touch back home. Definitely recommended!
