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...

vilchaum, Owner at Vila Chaumieres, responded to this review

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....

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...

We arrived just before sunset and where treated to a surreal display of colours on in the sky and reflections on the lagoon. Two glasses of vino a delicious chicken curry, seafood pasta, great espresso, friendly and efficient service ... And they have their own private aquarium in the lagoon lit up at night ... Saddest part was walking back...

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)...

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. Richard and Ursula are very warm and friendly, and so do all other staffs. The garden view room is spacious, and the air conditioning was a huge plus in...

Originally chose this place as it was close to where we were staying and being Sunday other places were closed. The restaurant is located over the water so it's nice to watch the marine life under lights. The seafood spaghetti is the only reason why we went back those as it was excellent, well suited our palates as it was...

Richard and Ursula were wonderful hosts and looked after us and other guest well.. We lost our keys and they spent a lot of time and effort assisting us with the repercussions. It worked out well. We stayed 2 nights here in a nice, spacious, private bungalow set among a very beautiful expansive garden. A modern bathroom and separate walk...

Vila Chaumieres is a beautiful place to unwind. We had a room with a balcony looking over the well kept grounds and onto a perfect lagoon. It was lovely and quiet with just the faint cluck of some chickens from over the water. The hotel gardens are stunning, and the pool area is the same. Richard and Ursula are perfect...

We recently had a week in Richard and Ursula's lovely hotel. We found our villa very clean,beds comfortable, spacious and in a pleasant setting. You would never have known that there had been a cyclone.

I stayed a week in Vanuatu on business and because the usual 'business hotels' were fully booked or still rebuilding after Cyclone Pam, took a chance and stayed at Villa Chaumieres (which I found on TripAdvisor :-). Wow, what a great surprise! My room, overlooking Lagoon 2 and with a wide verandah, was quiet, spacious, airy and immaculately cleaned; lighting...
