tropical setting on 6 acres with 150 metres of absolute
waterfront lawns and gardens, for Luganville’s only true beach
side resort located just 2 kms from town and only 15 minutes
from the international airport. Far enough out from town to
avoid the noise but close enough for that early business
appointment, adventure trip or scuba dive.
Beachfront Resort offers excellent accommodation over-looking
the sheltered waters of Segond Channel and Aore Island.
Our fully licensed restaurant, The Coolidge Bar & Grill,
provides first-class food from both our regular and black
board menus plus a selection of cold beers and wines all
enjoyed in relaxed Melanesian style surroundings overlooking
the swimming pool, lawns and ocean.
We also make the best pizzas in town - eat in or take away.
All our bungalows are self-contained, air conditioned and
include ceiling fans, ensuite, refrigerator, kitchenette, mini
bar, insect screens plus toaster and tea/coffee making
Our Lodge is available for the budget conscious traveler or
groups visiting our tropical paradise.
A continental breakfast, served in our open nakamal or around
the pool, is included with all our tariffs.

Activities include adventure tours to custom villages, ride a
horse along a tropical beach, scuba dive on the world's most
accessible ship wreck, the SS President Coolidge, snorkel our
pristine reefs or an aquatic American WW2 equipment grave
site, trek through exotic jungle, hire a car and experience
the island, putter around on a scooter, visit coconut
plantations and blue holes, paddle a dugout canoe down a
pristine river, visit WW2 wrecks, paddle a kayak to another
island and explore, trek through a cave and float down a
river, grab a rod and catch a big fish, take a scenic flight
in a sea plane, lay back and enjoy a champagne sunset cruise
around the islands or laze by the pool soaking up some rays
The latest attraction is our range of two person Zego boats,
twin hull for fun and stability and fitted with 30 hp
outboards, these craft are great for a high speed ‘spin’
around Segond Chanel or explore the rivers and coastline.
Our ADSL wifi has coverage in most areas of the resort
allowing easy access to your email and for keeping up-to-date
with the internet and Facebook. Enjoy a local Tanna cappuccino
or laté or a cold drink whilst on line in our open nakamal
with plenty of power outlets to save those precious batteries.
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and save costs
we’ve installed a range of energy saving devices from low
wattage lamps, solar hot water heaters to also recommending
our local Tusker beer as the bottles are reused by the brewery
and not buried. We also recycle aluminium cans – not an easy
task on a small south pacific island. See the environmental
page for more details.
In our restaurant we use as much locally grown, totally
organic, produce as possible including Santo’s famous organic
beef and seafood thus supporting Ni-Vanuatu fishermen, farmers
and families and reducing our need for imported goods.
The final stages have been made to the islands hydro power
generation scheme, on the Sarakata River, which now generates
70% of the towns electricity needs.
