Our Resort Report

Annual Closure of Aquatonic Pool

Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa has informed us that the paid facilities for the Aquatonic Pool will be closed from the 19th to the 25th of February 2024. Please refer to the attached for more information.

OUR Thoughts on Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa,
Complexe Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa is a 4 Star Resort, only one of 2 Resorts actually on the beach at Anse Vate. (The other is Le Meridien which is next door). This is a superb location near the end of Anse Vate where the Promenade Roger Laroque (road) heads away from the beach frontage.

Not quite as handy to the local shops as some properties (especially those which are located over the road from the beach), never-the-less it’s still only a 10-minute walk over to the village, shops, supermarket, restaurants etc.  From here, it’s only a 60 minute stroll right into town if you are so inclined although taxis are quite reasonable in cost so why walk?

Chateau Royal is a great place to stay for those seeking a bit more space than a hotel room provides and the kitchen in each Suite is a very helpful facility for those staying more than a few days and those looking to save a little on meals which can be a little expensive in Noumea, although there are some excellent cheaper meal options too (see our Noumea Destinations pages). It is easy to find food outlets where you can stock up on food items to heat and eat in your Suite at Chateau Royal.

Chateau Royal Beach Resort offers two tariff options
● Room-only
● Room and Breakfast.
We are happy to quote on either tariff. 
For those choosing the Room and Breakfast tariff, a full Buffet Breakfast is included. The in-house restaurants are very good for lunch and dinner.  On the ground floor of the Resort there are some independent food outlets which are also very handy. For stays from 01 April 2020, the resort has introduced a Breakfast Special Offer whereby guests staying a minimum 4 nights paying for 1 breakfast, receive their next breakfast free.  See "Secials" below for full details.

The Resort offers a good range of facilities for guests.  There is an excellent swimming pool complex, which is almost on the beach; there is also a great little gymnasium and a superb Spa which offers a full range of facilities and services including massage, treatments rooms for singles and couples, hydrotherapy, facials, nails and hairdressing. Chateau Royal offers 6 Reception Rooms which are ideal for meetings/conferences and wedding receptions.

Inclusions for guests of Chateau Royal Beach Resort
● Complimentary Wifi access up to 4 devices
● Complimentary access to the fitness centre 24/7

Your Accommodation Options
The Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa is a ten-level building complex. They offer one and two bedroom apartment-style suites and have 4 grades of suites – Standard, Resort, Lagoon and Prestige.  The Suites are all of a similar standard, the different grades mark the position of the Suites in the building and the views from each category.  Generally, the Standard and Resort grade Suites are located furthest away from the beach (and that’s not far). Standard Suites have limited views out to the interior of the island and the hill behind the resort, or of the gardens out towards Le Meridien.  Resort grade suites have a peep of the sea off the side of the balcony. The Lagoon Suites are normally located closer to the sea frontage of the building with a good sea view and the Prestige grade suites are right on the sea frontage with wide views of Anse Vate Bay and beyond.

The original Chateau Royal was the normal hotel-style resort with a great many more rooms than it has now.  The new all-suite layout is a vast improvement on the former arrangement. Following its transformation, Chateau Royal now offers 1 Bedroom Suites, the size of 2 of the original hotel rooms, and 2 Bedroom Suites which incorporate 3 of the original hotel rooms.  Every 1 Bedroom Suite has a separate bedroom and separate lounge with a very handy kitchen. A nice big sliding door separates the bedroom from the lounge if required.  In the 2 Bedroom Suites a bedroom, each with its own ensuite bathroom, opens up from each side of the separate lounge/kitchen. The in-room kitchen in all Suites includes a full-sized refrigerator/freezer, a stovetop, a microwave oven and dishwasher as well as a full supply of crockery and cutlery; every Suite has a good-sized balcony.
