A tropical destination like no other, the islands of Vanuatu offer a diverse cultural landscape influencing a melting pot of dining tastes and flavours and a natural variety of amazing elements both above and below the earth.
The Havannah Vanuatu is just a 30-minute drive away from Port Vila on the North West coast and is located in a spectacular natural haven, neatly tucked away under the hills that divide the island, providing a natural rain shadow for the resort.
Havannah Harbour was used during World War II as a naval base by the entire U.S. 7th Fleet. As a result, the harbour is full of interesting dive and snorkel sites. You can readily find WWII Coca-Cola bottles lining the sea floor, downed sea planes, old artillery shells and other interesting artefacts.
Port Vila is where the commercial and most of the tourism activities take place. From here you can take a buggy, kayak or horse-riding trips to remote parts of the island; enjoy a cold drink in one of the many bars or cafes in town; enjoy a lovely meal overlooking the harbour and browse through the local markets.
The potpourri of expatriate cultures is reflected in food styles served in over forty restaurants and cafes - French, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Mexican, Thai, Melanesian and Mediterranean. The French influence means you can easily purchase gourmet cheeses, pates, breads and salads from the local stores to fill your picnic hamper.
Getting out and about is easy in Vanuatu. Port Vila is flush with great restaurants, bars and night clubs where you can make new friends, share laughter and mingle with other holidaymakers.
Soak up the culture with kava tasting and traditional music at an authentic Melanesian feast night or enjoy the sunset and great atmosphere with happy hour at a beach bar. Experience a fun night of spectacular fire magic at the various Fire Shows featuring fire dancing, fire sticks and fire pois.
Shopping is fun, easy going, and hassle free and you're likely to find some great bargains or souvenirs, particularly if you are after French items and need to stock up on your favourite perfume, champagne, cognac or perhaps a new designer handbag!
During your stay at The Havannah Vanuatu, you can enjoy the luxury of participating in one of our many complimentary activities at your own pace. It’s the perfect place to slow down, immerse yourself and be "in the moment". So, you can relax and unwind or plan for some adventurous action; the choice is yours.
