I have been very slow to review our visit to Vila for the spectacular Vanuatu Cup Kiwani races.
We have travelled and stayed in Port Vila many times, but we can never go past the location, value for money, luxury and service of the Grand hotel and casino. The Friday night happy hour in The Hemisphere Bar is legendary and popular with ex pats as well as tourists. The views are
to die for and you really feel like you are sitting on top of the World. When entering the Grand Foyer on arrival at the hotel, you are immediately taken by the magnificent vista of the Harbour and pool area, (where lunch and grazing meals are served with your freshly squeezed Lime Juice Cocktails)
Breakfast on the Terrace at Crystals Restaurant is also a must, with the local children on their way in from the islands traveling to school on the harbour. It is the only place in the world i
can hear the singing and laughter of little children on their way to school. We have stayed at 8 different resorts in Vila, and they all have their good points, however, for convenience, reliability, style and definitely value for money, we always choose the Grand. We have considered a place of our own in Vila, as we feel it is a home away from home now, but why would you bother with the expense when it is all laid out for you and you are treated like old friends in the heart of the Town? I hope to return before Christmas, for another Happy Hour in the
Hemisphere bar and another Sunset Cruise on the harbour. Tankyu Tumas to all.
