Pango Peninsular, Efate, Vanuatu

OUR Thoughts on Breakas Beach Resort
With all the facilities and services of a high quality resort Breakas rate themselves at 3.5 Star, so, accepting that rating and the price that goes with it, be prepared to be thoroughly satisfied with your holiday experiences at this beautiful well-run Resort.

Breakas Beach is located in a beautiful, sandy bay on the south coast of Efate, 10 minutes by car from Port Vila near Pango Village. Facing south means it captures the cooling breezes and that, plus the traditional style architecture results in air-conditioning not being necessary.

The resort faces the open sea, a reef shelters the bay and the surf breaks out on this reef. Around Efate Island there is quite a big tidal change and that results in an ever-changing outlook at Breakas Beach. When the tide is high the lagoon behind the reef is full of water and snorkelling off the beach is full of interest. When the tide is out the reef is more exposed and the local people can be seen fossicking the reef collecting the abundant seafood – that’s when the resort’s 22 metre Horizon Pool comes into its own.

Breakas Beach Resort is an “Adults Only” resort. Their minimum for anyone to be on the resort is 15 years, both in the rooms and the restaurants and this minimum age applies to both house guests and casual diners. The restaurants and bars follow Breakas’ “feet in the sand” philosophy and most nights dining is set up out under the stars. The casual-style “Salt Bar” on the beach front has recently been joined on the beach front by the latest addition – “Butterfly Landing” a terrific alfresco beachfront café which affords guests a spectacular view of Port Vila’s best surfing beach right out front, but Breakas is best known for its a la carte restaurant right on the beachfront and its famous “La Table sur La Plage” experience – alfresco fine dining. 

At Breakas, continental breakfast is included in the room tariff.

The Spa is set up in a fale beside the restaurant and the massage ladies deliver an exceptionally good massage service providing both relaxing and therapeutic massage.

Breakas offer a prepaid meal plan which we can include for you in your package arrangements. The Meal Package may be pre-purchased by the day and includes all meals.  Consider taking The Meal Plan for a few days of your stay and perhaps leave a day or two free to sample some of the other restaurants in nearby Port Vila.  As Breakas Beach Resort is only 10 minutes from town by taxi (a bit longer via the local minibus public transport system), we find that most guests like to try the town restaurants once or twice during their stay. Due to the fact that there is quite a big local population living in the Pango district, the local transport minibuses seem to be passing every couple of minutes which makes accessing the town restaurants very easy at a very reasonable price for transport.

In addition to complimentary Continental Breakfast there is a good list of other complimentary services provided for guests:
● Welcome fruit cocktail on arrival
● Introductory scuba-diving lesson in resort pool
● Local cooking class
● Guided cultural tour of local village
● Use of kayak equipment
● Use of snorkelling equipment
● Use of stand-up paddle boards
● Free wifi on guest-use PC at Reception
     (Pre-paid internet cards may also be purchased from
     Reception which provides wifi access throughout the
     resort’s rooms and public areas and Port Vila town.) 

Breakas Beach Resort is a wonderful location for a wedding or Vow Renewals – please refer to our wedding section for wedding and vow renewal options at Breakas.

What Breakas Beach Resort Say About Themselves:
“Over the past fourteen years Breakas Beach Resort has been very active in developing unique accommodation solutions to sell to the happy traveller with destination Vanuatu in mind. Our designers produced a fare (bungalow) that captured the romance of a "feet in the sand" holiday. Set in situe, amidst swaying palms and dotted pandanus trees, our 63 fares offer romance and escapism for the holiday-maker pursuing more than a hotel room experience. 

The resort was overwhelmed with the success of these up-market tribal bungalows, and they steadily gained design recognition for their celebration of Melanesian aesthetic and architectural features.

Customer support was the juggernaut that allowed the growth of the product and has nurtured the dream of creating something incredibly special amongst banyans and spotted pandanus on a white sandy beach in Port Vila. The managed growth of the business into 63 fares allowed us to secure our position as the number one ADULTS ONLY, child free Resort in Vanuatu.

Under new ownership since July 2014, the property has had a large investment in additional infrastructure to cope with the growth and a strong focus on guest satisfaction.

With gorgeous views and immediate access to Port Vila's best surfing beach (left and right break), the Resort's restaurant and bar present extraordinary settings for a beachside dining experience or that very special celebration.

Breakas Beach Resort provides a magical holiday experience for those seeking a beachfront getaway in an Adults-Only environment.” 

Note re Vanuatu Tourism Levy
In order to assist the development of tourism in Vanuatu, there is a Tourism Levy of 0.05% added to all nightly room charges.  This charge may either be added to the tariff and included in the prepaid accommodation cost, or in some cases, collected direct from guests at checkout.  The actual amount payable depends on room tariffs and ranges from around NZ$1.00 per night per room to around $5.00 per night per room for the more expensive properties.

Your Accommodation Options

All accommodation is in stand-alone individual bungalows, known in Vanuatu as ‘Fares’. Breakas Beach Resort has 17 Beach Front and 46 Garden View Fares. The Fares are all very special. Built with concrete walls and cool ceramic tiled floors, the special feature is the high roof and ceiling clad in genuine local thatch. The windows don’t have glass in them, but are insect-screened and equipped inside the fale with wooden louver shutters which provides lovely flow-through ventilation. All of this makes air-conditioning unnecessary. To aid air movement every Fare has a lazy ceiling fan.

Fares also have a romantic mosquito net over the bed, Breakas signature chair, a balcony with private entrance, refrigerator, ironing facilities, tea/coffee making facilities, writing desk and hairdryer.

Then there is the bathroom! A nice big coral rock lined bathroom with its thatched roof and open-to-the-sky shower all very private and very romantic. There is no TV, no radio, no phones in the fares. Your Fare at Breakas is for relaxation and rejuvenation. TV, phones and Internet connections are available in the lobby and bar area.
