Stayed here for 7 nights, had an awesome time. So relaxing and the staff were very friendly! Stayed in the ocean view bungalow and was just peace and quiet! Great for a stress free get away with friends or family! Definitely coming back to this place!

Came to Vanuatu for a wedding. I chose Holiday Inn as it was a family friendly resort. Furthermore from the reviews and submitted photos, this place looked comfortable for both my 75 year old father and 7 year old niece. I was not wrong, I found Holiday Inn a large, open and well-maintained resort. Our stay was a little over...
