How much are you paying per night? Cos I looked at their website and wasnt sure if they rates were per person per night or per room? Do you know? It looks gorgeous! smile.gif

No we are paying per room per night .... prices on site are more expensive i believe

Will have to chase it up for you as we booked through an agent not on the site and are picking up documents this weekend

We got a package with accom and airfares etc not just the accom smile.gif

Hi,

I went to Iririki this year in Feb for a holiday, it is a lovely place to stay (and yes, every second couple were honeymooners). I got a very good package too, $1700pp for 7 nights + flights + vouchers for discounted meals, daytrips.

I booked through a travel agent,I just checked their website and they are having great specials now too! PM me if I can help anyone with contacts or what to do there, there are some great restaurants and little spots around!

Enjoy, Prinny - Vanuatu is WONDERFUL!

I went in Feb last year, loved it! Restaurants were great (it's not cheap to eat, not if you are comparing to Phuket, etc), food was excellent.

There was stuff to do if you wanted to do stuff - sail, kayak, the waterfalls, dive (but not on Efate, go to the other islands like Santos if you want to do that). Also went to Tanna (where they filmed Survivor Vanuatu) - saw the volcano erupt which was unreal.

It was relaxing - the sign of a good holiday is if you come back not remembering what day it is. I certainly forgot, couldn't believe I was only gone for one week! I would highly recommend it.

We loved Vanuatu .... and will go back again this year if funds will allow it laugh.gif

As Princess C said there is a lot to do but remember it is a poorer country than ours so dont expect 5 star

We would have loved to go to the volcano but it was $$$ so maybe next time

Yes food is expensive but with our resort we had a lot of 2 for one deals around vanuatu which was great !!

Here our some of our honeymoon pics for you to check out !!

If you would like to know anything further just let me know !! smile.gif

Restaurants in Port Vila is slightly cheaper than having a meal in Melbourne. You pay maybe A$30-35 for a seafood main. But the food is excellent - having had French and English rule the country, the cuisine is just fantastic! They also have a huge cattle industry on Santos island (bigger, more grazing fields) .. the beef is top-grade and exported to Japan and stuff .. if you eat beef, don't miss out. The steaks are very good, even H2B who is a stickler for his beef, says it's good.

If you go, go to Villa Chaumiere. H2B proposed there .. and it's beautiful! It's a French restaurant by the lagoon .. I watched all the little fishies swim around in the water as we were having dinner by the water at sunset .. what can I say? What girl wouldn't say YES after a proposal and a meal LIKE THAT?! laugh.gif

Miss Polly,
The steak is amazing !!!!! My Hubby was in heaven and i even loved it (not into steak that much) so tender mmmmmmmm

Also with your Le Meridian venture ............ hmm word of advice ..... i dont know what the resort is like inside seems nice from the outside BUT it is a good 5-8 min DRIVE to the heart of Port Villa you wouldnt walk it (hills) so keep that in mind so it is a little out of the way of everything - know this as we did a few pick ups on tour trips

As with Iririki you just catch boat over and your there !!

As for restaurants there is a wide variety to choose from Seafood Mexican you name it they will pretty much have it...

If you need any other info just let me know smile.gif smile.gif

yes, we stayed at Iririki. It was lovely! As Prinny says, it's easy to get around too. They do actually run 24 hours too .. heheh, just in case you have a late one! wink.gif

there are little mini buses that shoot around the town (just flag them down and tell them where you want to go). So if you're at Meridien, it's not too far .. but just bear in mind you need to bus everywhere.

Villa Chaumiere is in Port Vila although you have to catch a bus there (or taxi, about A$10 .. or catch the bus there for about A$3 per person)
