OUR Thoughts on Chantilly’s on the Bay
Chantilly’s on the Bay is a special little Hotel in a superb location with amazing views from every room, charming people and a very good restaurant. Chantilly’s is a superb choice for people interested in a slightly different holiday experience away from the major resorts but with a pleasant “Real Vanuatu” ambience.  Located on the Port Vila waterfront 5 minutes walk from town, with a choice of either walking the leafy walk alongside the road or on the new waterfront boardwalk which is a major improvement to the Port Vila scene. At Chantilly's you can experience a magical, warm tropical waterfront location with the pleasant downtown Port Vila vibe right at your doorstep. 

Every unit, whether you choose a spacious Studio or an even more spacious One Bedroom Apartment has a 180° view down Port Vila Harbour with the harbour entrance directly ahead, Iririki Island Resort out to the left and the suburban Malapoa Peninsular to the right.  From your room at Chantilly’s watch the cruise ships come and go as well as the general daily activity on the harbour.  Waking up each day to the tropical mornings and this amazing view is a delight, equalled only by the evening display of the spectacular tropical sunsets.

Chantilly’s is virtually right on the waterfront.  The hotel pool is built almost over the bay and there is a jetty out front which people with boats sometimes use when they come in to dine at the hotel’s “Tilly’s Restaurant.”  The Hotel facilities make for a perfectly relaxing holiday – a beautiful waterfront restaurant and bar, a very pleasant pool, a Spa, Hairdresser and Beauty Salon as well as a very chic resort-wear boutique shop.  A complimentary Wifi hotspot is available in the restaurant-reception area and throughout the rooms. The hotel also offers a tour desk for advice and booking assistance for the full range of Vanuatu tours and activities. The new Banyan Beach Bar is now open at Chantilly’s and is proving very popular with guests and Port Vila locals alike.  A white sand beach has been created complete with four-poster day beds, comfortable outdoor furniture and seats and tables which can be moved into the water – an ideal spot for an afternoon or evening cocktail.  At night, the banyan tree is lit up and the mood is mellow.

Staying at Chantilly’s is a very interesting option to a full-resort holiday in Vanuatu.  Staying here you really are part of the interesting Port Vila town life vibe.  Walk into town to supermarkets (the kitchenettes in all the rooms at Chantilly’s give you the opportunity to really enjoy shopping at Port Vila’s supermarkets and the produce market), sample the café culture, pick up a bottle or two of wine and some snacks then return to the serenity of your hotel room or apartment and that special view.
