Catering exclusively for adults, The Havannah is just a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of the nation’s capital Port Vila. Here couples can immerse themselves in the natural beauty of their surroundings. Choose to slow down and enjoy the tranquility of nature or be active in experiencing the many wonderful unique cultural and environmental aspects of the area.
Dining is a pleasure, with our chefs producing delicious and innovative dishes with locally sourced ingredients a priority.
The Havannah sits on a stunning white sand peninsula on the sheltered shores of Havannah Harbour, named after a visit from a 19th century British naval vessel.
This sheltered natural deep-water harbor has fringing areas of reef and mangrove.
A short distance across the harbor lie the islands of Moso and Lelepa. To the south, Lelepa acts as the gateway to the UNESCO world heritage listed Chief Roi Mata domain and includes the significant archaeological sites, Mangasi, Fels Cave and Hat Island. Moso to the north is the home of a hawksbill turtle marine sanctuary.
WW2 memorabilia can be viewed as a result of the area being a base for the US Fleet to the 1942 Battle of the Coral Sea.
The resort is only a short trip by road to the capital Port Vila with its wonderful National Museum and local seafront markets.
Activity-wise, the harbour is the perfect backdrop for activities including diving, snorkelling, kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, sailing and so much more.
We invite you to experience The Havannah, Vanuatu’s genuine warmth of service, attention to detail and truly magical setting.
Havannah harbour hosts a myriad of marine life- dolphins, turtles, migratory whales and manatees- can frequently be seen in the water directly off the resort.
The Havannah is a supporter of VESS, a local organization raising awareness of environmental matters in Vanuatu. A program VESS is currently driving is directed at the preservation of Dugong and the habitat in which they exist. At The Havannah guests can often witness Dugong feeding on the sea grass areas directly off the resort. The Havannah is committed to assisting with these efforts and has adopted the VESS best practice guidelines for engaging with these wonderful marine mammals. We encourage all of our guests to visit the VESS web site and view the Guidelines for Interacting with Dugong.
We also encourage our guests to visit the turtle sanctuary at Tranquillity base on Moso Island. This sanctuary is committed to supporting the breeding of hawksbill sea turtles, a critically endangered turtle that biologists estimate have declined by 80% in the past 120 years. There is a good chance that an early morning view over the calm waters of Havannah harbour will provide evidence of the fact that this initiative is proving fruitful and hawksbill numbers are rising locally.
