8.6 out of 10

This beautifully designed resort is set amid fig and coconut trees, with immaculate lawns, a large pool and a postcard beach. Expect tasteful, amply sized rooms with cultural tones and all mod cons, plus the added lure of sweeping views of the bay and Tavurvur volcano. Other perks include a stylish open-sided restaurant and a dive centre.

It’s a mellow and comfortable place to stay, close to the airport and well away from the noisy town centre.
