Lonely Planet review

It's like Vanuatu's own Raffles. The place to see and be seen, this retro '70s building with its fabulous huge slit gong in the foyer, and deep plush lounge chairs. Sit out on the patio with a G&T and watch life come your way, or take your drink out to the gazebo. Comfortable, spacious rooms open onto the pool area; more luxurious rooms are upstairs. The restaurant has excellent menu which combines Western and local foods, so you can enjoy coconut-coated prawns, or Santo beef with mash. Guests can rent hotel cars; Visa, Amex and MasterCard accepted.
