Lonely Planet review

Rooms are fresh from a renovation (expect all mod cons) and the spirit is refreshed from a name change. There’s a Chinese restaurant out the front (Ocean King Restaurant; mains 1100VT to 2100VT; closed Wednesday) and its central location is a bonus.

Our independent authors have visited The Espiritu and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Luganville & Around.
