Our stay at Vila Chaumieres was just great - we planned to relax (and did) but also had heaps of fun exploring Port Vila and surroundings using Vila Chaumieres as a base. Richard and Ursula quickly understood the types of things we liked to do and provided good advice and help. We stayed in both the garden room and lagoon...

I stayed at Vila Chaumiers a few weeks back for a total of 7 nights and was not disappointed with what I had heard about/read in other reviews prior to booking my stay. There were 4 of us and we stayed in 2 bungalows at the resort. The place only has 5 rooms for 10 people I think, but this...

We were enjoying our stay in Pt Vila and in the lovely garden room at Vila Chaumieres when my wife had the misfortune to slip while walking in town and to break her arm. Medical advice was to get back to Oz asap as the arm needed to be pinned. Richard and Ursula could not have been more helpful in...

Stayed in a room with a delightful balcony overlooking the lagoon. We went for complete rest and relaxation so armed with a few books we were more than happy to sit and look out at the water. Threre was always something to watch - either the small children over the other side, canoes and kayaks travelling up and down. The...

We spent three nights at Vila Chaumieres and loved it. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a great view from the enormous balcony over the water. The owners and staff were charming and warm yet highly professional. The restaurant is very good with a varied menu, good wine list and great service. The seafood platter is particularly good and,...

My husband and I needed to get away from a year of hard work - what a great location away from Port Vila nestled on the water very peaceful and tranquil. A small resort with the best restaurant food to die for. Ursula and Richard always willing to help and organise anything you need. They organised a van (bus) and...

It's a very nice, small, quiet hotel not too far away from town. The room we stayed in overlooked the lagoon and was cosy. The staff and owners are very friendly and helpful. The best part was their food! The seafood platter is a must-try!

What a gem! Stayed 3 weeks during Feb/March and could not have been happier. Fabulous location on the lagoon, delicious food, great accommodation. Hosts Ursula and Richard and their friendly staff helped us arrange transport, organise a picnic and readily catered to our vegetarian palates. The complimentary breakfast consisted of a varied selection of fresh fruits which we occasionally supplemented...

We stayed at Vila Chaumieres for 2 weeks over Christmas but have only now had the chance to write our review. We can't say enough about Vila Chaumieres. It was wonderful, quite intimate and set in beautiful gardens right on the lagoon. We stayed in the lagoon view room that was comfortable and very clean with everything we needed. Many...
