We stayed 10 days at this magnificent resort. Service is "number 1"!! The only thing I would suggest is a few changes to the menu. We found that for a 10 day stay the meals were a bit "heavy". More, lighter options would be great especiallly for lunch! I eat little meat and found the vegetarian options very limited. Having...

We have just returned home from a week at the Havannah. It's a lovely place and so good for relaxing. The sunsets are amazing. The staff are friendly and unobtrusively helpful. We are feeling recharged and ready for a busy year now.

We have stayed at The Havannah 3 times now and it is consistently excellent. It is the most peaceful location in Vanuatu - like a completely different world from the area around Port Vila and much less windy than Eratap. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. It is a bit of a trek...
