About Moorings Hotel

Dining at Moorings Hotel’ Seaside Bar & Bistro

The Seaside Bar & Bistro invites travellers to embark on a culinary journey at their harbour-side restaurant and bar. The ambience is relaxed, and guests can indulge in Chef Evanne Kerr and his team’s international fusion cuisine and Port Vila harbour’s stunning views. The menu promises dishes bursting with unique flavours, expertly crafted to showcase the best of Vanuatu’s celebrated organic produce.

As the sun dips below the horizon, guests can unwind with a tropical cocktail and witness a breathtaking Vanuatu sunset. The hotel claims exceptional value-for-money dining even as the restaurant thoughtfully caters to varied dietary requirements, ensuring that guests with gluten-free or vegetarian needs have equally delightful dining experiences.

Adventures Beyond the Hotel

While the Moorings Hotel provides a haven of relaxation with its inviting pool, its central location makes it the ideal launchpad for travellers to discover the wonders of Vanuatu. Travelers can immerse themselves in the lively capital of Port Vila. Exploring colourful markets buzzing with local produce and crafts, delving into Vanuatu’s history and culture at the National Museum, and savouring fresh seafood at charming waterfront eateries are great side-trips and activities to partake in. Nature enthusiasts can embark on a hike through lush rainforests to reach the cascading Mele Cascades, where refreshing pools await amidst a tropical paradise. Adrenaline seekers might try canyoning or ziplining amidst Vanuatu’s breathtaking landscapes. The vibrant underwater world, teeming with coral reefs and diverse marine life, beckons divers and snorkellers alike. For a truly unforgettable experience, adventurers can take a daytrip to Tanna Island and signup for the hike to the accessible Yasur Volcano, where they’ll witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of its constant fiery eruptions.

Day trips allow visitors to explore the pristine beaches and tranquil villages of neighbouring islands like Pele or Nguna. Boat tours offer a chance to discover secluded coves, encounter vibrant marine life, and experience the warmth of Ni-Vanuatu hospitality. Those interested in cultural immersion can visit a traditional village to witness authentic customs, learn about the fascinating Melanesian culture, and perhaps even try kava, the ceremonial drink of Vanuatu. Holidaymakers seeking a longer getaway can embark on an island-hopping journey to uncover the unique charms of Vanuatu’s diverse islands, exploring Espiritu Santo’s laidback beauty, known for its world-class diving, or discovering the traditional way of life amidst the untouched landscapes of Pentecost Island. Speaking of, feel free to read our blog on Pentecost Island’s claim to being the ‘original bungee jumpers’!

The friendly staff at Moorings Hotel can assist with booking tours, arranging transportation, and providing valuable tips to ensure visitors experience the best of Vanuatu during their stay.
