IRIRIKI ISLAND RESORT & SPA
Iririki Island, Port Vila Harbour Efate, Vanuatu

OUR Thoughts on Iririki Island Resort
Iririki Island Resort & Spa reopened 01 May 2016 after a MASSIVE up-grade to all facilities and the addition of new services such as a new casino and entertainment centre, a fabulous, new purpose-built spa on the top of the island, resort vegetable and herb gardens etc – in fact almost everything has been renewed and improved, right down to the jetty (now sporting a roof) and the all-new resort ferry.  All the island roads have been newly cobbled, all the accommodation has been refurbished and improved, all pools have been refreshed and all meal services and venues up-graded.  New services like the complimentary use of bicycles to get around the island have added a new dimension.  Now supporting a 4.5 Star rating (self-rated) Iririki Island Resort & Spa is really like a NEW resort.

Iririki Island itself, is shaped like an inverted water droplet with the head facing Port Vila town and the long, tapered tail pointing towards the cruise ship berth across the bay.  This really is a fabulous location for a holiday resort. Back in the colonial days when Great Britain and France jointly administered the country (which was then known as The New Hebrides), the British half of the government was based on Iririki Island and the French were based on the “mainland”. The British High Commissioner could gaze over the 300 metres which separate the island from the town and keep tabs on what was going on from his residence on top of the island where the new spa is now located. These days Iririki Island Resort has tastefully spread around the whole island (there are still plenty of open spaces left too), so guests enjoy a relaxing “tropical island” atmosphere, while being able to hop over to town by 24-hour ferry for a change of pace anytime they choose.

The restaurants, cafés and bars at Iririki Island Resort & Spa are of a high standard.  “Azure” which overlooks Port Vila is a great favourite of ours for dinner but they’re all good.  We’ve enjoyed many an evening at Azure (formerly Mitchener’s) dining on great food while overlooking Port Vila Bay and the lights of Port Vila Town while the Iririki Ferry shuttles to-and-fro on the sheltered harbour below.  The Sunset Bar & Café which overlooks the four-tiered swimming pool at the Leisure Precinct is another favourite with its pool-side setting and table seating and don’t overlook the new Jewel Lounge and Bar in the casino complex with its mixed Asian cuisine. Guests at Iririki enjoy 24-hour room service and there’s nothing quite as romantic as enjoying a special dinner served on your own private balcony. Over recent times key staff have attend Barista Courses with the result that guests experience excellent coffee throughout the resort.

In addition to the many dining options at Iririki you also have 24-hour access to the Port Vila town restaurants, bars and nightclubs via the complimentary ferry any time you feel like a change of scenery.  For those who choose to stay in the Deluxe Apartments (Deluxe Pool View and Deluxe Ocean View) and the Deluxe Penthouse Suite, which all have a kitchen, there are 3 very good French-style supermarkets in town (2 supermarkets are very handily located to the Iririki town wharf) which offer a full range of supplies – it’s fun finding your way around these supermarkets with their pleasing mixture of familiar as well as foreign brands and ready-to-eat hot takeaway food selections.

Note re Vanuatu Tourism Levy
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.
