When it comes to family-friendly getaways in Vanuatu, the Paradise Cove Resort ranks amongst the very top of options. Located in Efate hugging the south shore of the beautiful Mele Bay, the resort is just half an hour drive from Port Vila’s airport.
The Paradise Cove Resort offers a powdery-white sand beach for rest and recreation, a reef with pristine coral formations and a whole host of activities for people to disconnect from technology and daily stresses and bond with nature and people. This is just one of the reasons what makes this resort just so special. The beach is perfect for long walks any time of the day and the jetty extending to the sea will often have guests hanging there, admiring the serene views of the ocean.
The resort offers just 10 spacious one- and two-bedroom villas for families and couples, making privacy, seclusion and personal space one of its top priorities. Even when fully booked, there will be just 30-odd people in the vast resort. Then, it has a staff of 24 to cater to every whim of the guests – a ratio which even seven-star luxury resorts find hard to match! The level of attention, care and warmth guests receive at the Paradise Cove Resort is phenomenal and often brings them back as repeat visitors. In true tradition, the heart of the resort is the ‘Nakamal’ or the community hut. Present in every village, it is a massive hut-like structure where locals and villagers gather to socialise. The resort’s Nakamal is designed to encourage guests to mingle with others and it succeeds, because the bar is right close by and it doubles as the main restaurant. The Nakamal is also where guests can get free, unlimited WiFi; complimentary snorkelling gear, reef shoes and great conversation.
The restaurant woos its patrons with fresh seafood and locally-sourced produce, its chefs excelling at Mediterranean and Melanesian cuisines. The kitchen is always ready with a la carte options and catering to special dietary requirements as it works on-demand. Aside from the bar at the Nakamal, visitors can also chill by the sea with a drink at the Beach Fare.
The Paradise Cove Resort was designed with the idea that there should be the least of modern distractions to help travellers reconnect with nature – that’s why there are no TVs in the villas and a plethora of activities inside and around the resort. The resort’s saltwater pool is the site for the PADI dive centre, where newbies can learn how to dive. Certified divers can take advantage of Vanuatu’s clear waters – our Specialists can help charter a dive operator to take travellers to the dive sites around the resort and Mele Bay. There are free bicycles to explore the verdant countryside and the resort proves excellent massage facilities after strenuous hikes. Outside the resort are a score and more of activities that are exclusive to Vanuatu, like hiking to the lip of the resident active volcano Mount Yasur, diving the blue holes, etc. Check out the tab for activities to pick which delights the most and we’ll book the tours in a jiffy!
