We had a pleasant two weeks in a comfortable western style studio at Tradewinds in September 2010. This felt like a home away from home and the place was as it is represented on the website and clean and tidy with daily room service. This resort is really good value for money. The location in Seaside suburb is next to... More

Tradewinds is a great base in Port Vila to relax by the small pool or be out and about. It is up above the lagoon (about a 200m walk downhill if you wish to swim or kayak in the lagoon) so other locations are better if this is the focus of your holiday. It is a good town base with... More

Tradewinds was recommended to us by friends of ours who live in Vanuatu. We were very happy with our stay and would happily recommend Tradewinds to others. The only slight minus is that this isn't a beachfront property (although it does have a lovely pool area). Anyway, if you want a sandy beachfront location then this isn't for you.

My husband and I travelled to Port Vila for the first and hopefully not the last time at the end August for 2 weeks in the sun. We chose to stay at Tradewinds Resort based on reviews on trip advisor. Tradewinds represents itself well on the website and I commented to Mitch that this was indeed very good. We found... More

Tradewinds Resort in Vanuatu is great, the resort is self sufficient, our studio had its own kitchenette, BBQ facilities, swimming pool, laundry facilities, lovely garden & table tennis equipment.

A great place to stay if you want to enjoy and experience the real Vanuatu as the resort is opposite a couple of local villages. We stayed in the 4 bed town house with 4 adults and 2 pre-schoolers and had plenty of space and privacy. The resort is friendly, super clean with great staff and service. The townhouse was... More

Situated with great views of lagoon. Easy access to town and museum.Owners are always keen to help organise sight seeing trips etc.and fix any problems quickly. I have stayed at Tradewinds 5 or 6 times in the past 4 years when working as a volunteer midwife at the hospital nearby. Tradewinds give us really good rates and a warm welcome.... More

If you are looking for somewhere that is clean, comfortable, secure, quiet (except for the occasional rooster), in a great location with everything you need then the Tradwinds is the place to stay. The bungalows are self contained with all the mod cons, so if you do not want to go out you may cook and eat in, rent a... More

We have been travelling to Vanuatu as a family for 4 years this year and Tradewinds Townhouse was the best experience of a family holiday we have had.
