MANGOES RESORT & RESTAURANT
Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu

OUR Thoughts on Mangoes Resort
An up-town 4-Star Port Vila Resort for adults only, Mangoes Resort is built on the top of the gentle hill which rises up from Port Vila Harbour and ends at a ridge overlooking the Erakor Lagoon and the overwater bungalows at the Holiday Inn Resort.  This ridge is a favoured residential area for many of Vanuatu’s business people and there is little wonder why - there are beautiful views over the lagoon, cooling easterly breezes and a wonderful sunrise to greet each day.

The resort grounds at Mangoes slope gently down from the road, the result of this being that, no matter which grade of accommodation you choose, you never get a “hemmed-in” feeling. Apart from the “No Children” policy the main features of Mangoes are the relaxing atmosphere, the closeness to Port Vila and the number of swimming pools that are available to guests throughout the property. Of the 26 individual villas and apartments, 10 have private plunge pools, each one is a decent 15m2 size, and scattered throughout the grounds there are another 3 pools for the use of all guests. The result of having all these pools is that no guest room is very far away at all from a swimming pool. One of these three pools is suitable for doing laps, while the other two are made for relaxing. (One of these pools is split level and incorporates a waterfall). We've usually found that even when Mangoes is fully booked it is unusual to be sharing any pool with other guests.

It takes only 10 to 15-minutes to walk into town. Going in it is downhill all the way, but it can be a bit of a grind on the way back in the heat of the day, especially if you’ve been shopping. However, there is always the option of the Port Vila public transport mini-buses which will take you virtually anywhere in the town environs for 150 Vatu. Just a few minutes from Mangoes you pass through a Ni-Vanuatu (local people) settlement. At night the men of the village gather at the local Nakamal kava bar (the location is marked by a red light on the roadside) and visitors are welcome to drop in for a shell or two of kava. Beware! Vanuatu kava is the “real stuff” and much more potent than the kava you may have experienced as a tourist in Fiji. The atmosphere in the village Nakamals is very friendly and welcoming to visitors.

Mangoes Resort has a very pleasant restaurant which is open to non-guests as well, and they do accept children in the restaurant. Even though the building is not old, the restaurant and the bar and the surrounding veranda terrace decks have a lovely old-fashioned plantation-style cool and open tropical feel about them with their wooden shutters, timber floors and leafy outlook. Room service is available 7:00am to 9:00pm and a romantic dinner on your villa balcony is easily arranged. Light breakfasts are included in the tariff.

A top spot for a wedding or a honeymoon, Mangoes is a place for relaxing around one of the many pools and soaking up the quiet atmosphere and the tropical views. It’s a place from which to venture out on expeditions to the many interesting sites around Port Vila and Efate, to enjoy something of the local culture, then to return home to the calm oasis at Mangoes Resort above the lagoon.

Mangoes works in with its sister property The Terraces Boutique Apartments which is next door, so guests at Mangoes have free access to both the Gym and the Tennis Court at The Terraces.

What Mangoes Resort Say About Themselves
“Imagine a small tropical resort of romantic bungalows for two, many with a private plunge pool. It’s serenely set high on a cliff amidst swaying palms, exotic fruit and flowers and features sensational views over the sparkling sapphire-blue waters of a South Pacific lagoon . . . and that’s just for starters. 

Add in three swimming pools, a superb, high-ceilinged restaurant that offers the best of local specialities including lobster, plus a fascinating harbour and township just 10 minutes away. Then, turn imagination into reality – at Mangoes Resort and Restaurant in Vanuatu. Mangoes is a carefully designed collection of just 29 beautifully appointed, boutique bungalows, perfectly situated above Port Vila, capital of the multi-island Republic of Vanuatu. Available exclusively to discerning over-18 vacationers only, each romantically louvered bungalow features the thoughtful comforts that make you feel immediately pampered – from Super- king size beds to a comfortable sitting area and a personal, furnished terrace plus full room service from 7am to 9pm. A light breakfast is included. 

There is a choice of four distinct styles of bungalow, some with luscious garden views, others with aspects of the lagoon and sculpted coastline. 10 have a private plunge pool and all feature up-to –the-minute, stylish tropical-mode decor, with Wi-Fi, telephone, TV, free use of a DVD library and access to a gym and tennis court at The Terraces, next door; the delightful bathrooms include shampoo, conditioner and oversized beach towels.”
