Fantastic place and friendly staff. Customer service 10/10. Staff were always smiling and happy to assist you when you needed directions or just some help. Easy access to town by catching a B Van. You wait outside of resort and they pull up for you. Meals were fabulous and two different size meals were available.

VC is a charming, quiet, pretty place set on a canal between two lagoons. There are lots of shrubs and flowers on the property. The term 'resort' is used very loosely in Vanuatu. This is more like what you would find at an Australian motel: accommodation, restaurant, bar, a fenced in 10 metre swimming pool (no view) and a couple... More

We had a wonderful 1 weeks stay at Vila Chaumieres. The property is located right on a narrow body of water between 2 large lagoons in Port Vila. The room we occupied is right above the Restaurant. It has a large balcony which overlooks the beautiful gardens and has a nice view down towards the first lagoon. It is a... More

Our driver took us there after being at Blue Lagoon for the morning. I had heard this was an amazing restaurant and it was! Beautiful, beautiful setting and the best food we had in ten days. Not that expensive (everything in Vanuatu is expensive). Don't miss this place!

Very nice place just out of town on road round the island. The restaurant is idyllic and the food simple but great value. Lovely staff and friendly owners. Room was very comfortable. Easy to park, very clean, small pool but right on the lagoon

My husband and I went here for dinner last night. We started with garlic bread that was burnt so we fed to the fish. Entree was prawns which were chewy and over cooked. My husband had the coconut crab for main which was ok but nothing to rave about! I ordered steak and did not eat it. It was served... More

We are astonished that you have given us such a negative review. The waitress who served you that evening mentioned she engaged in pleasant conversation with you both during the evening, and was totally unaware that you were dissatisfied at any stage. It was also noted that all your dishes were consumed. We apologise if the garlic bread was overdone.... More

We've visited Vila Chaumieres a number of times during our visits to Vila and the food is consistently good. This trip we tried the steak and had my favourite sauce, a retro pepper sauce. The steak was cooked exactly how I like, was of generous size and very tender. The setting is a lovely jetty looking over the water and... More

We arrived just before sunset and where treated to a surreal display of colours on in the sky and reflections on the lagoon.

The restaurant is located on a scenic lagoon where you can see the sea life. However, we went there for the coconut crab which was not available. We should have been advised of this at the time of booking seeing as it is their signature dish. You're looking at almost $30 for an entree ( our dish was 6 prawns)... More

We checked in Vila Chaumieres 3 times cause we went for 2 inner islands -Tanna and Ambrym. Every time we go back to Port Vila.. it feels like home sweet home.
