OUR Thoughts on Ramada Resort Port Vila
This new 4 Star resort property has now been open for a year and is constantly delivering a high standard of accommodation and services to very satisfied guests. Over the first 12 months, Ramada have continued to add services and facilities including a Day Spa (Kesom Spa) with a full range of treatments, a daily activities board which details lots of things to do for both adults and children as well as a special kids' play area.  The Sports Bar has become a favourite, especially on Thursday and Saturday evenings when the Sports Bar hosts live, local entrtainers.

The Ramada has added another 80 units to the Port Vila accommodation scene and, in true Ramada style, the facilities and accommodation types available differ from those found at other major resort in Vanuatu. At Ramada, every unit, be it a Studio, Junior Suite or 2 Bedroom Apartment, has kitchen facilities.  This feature is complimented by the full resort facilities available which include a lagoon-front restaurant, Lounge Bar and Sports Bar, a gym, Tour Desk and 24-hour Reception as well as very professional meeting and conference rooms.  .  

For the first year, there were some exceptionally generous specials on offer (such as Stay 4/Pay 3), many of which have been carried over to apply until 31 March 2020. Buffet breakfast for all guests is included in the room tariff . Another excellent special is the “Second Room Discount” which applies to stays in the Junior Suite category and provides the second room at a 25% discount – ideal for 2 couples, a group of friends and extended families.

The location is superb.  The Resort overlooks a broad expanse of the beautiful Erakor Lagoon complex and faces south-east to capture the cooling breezes.  The multifaceted Erakor Lagoon is a long series of lakes and waterways running approximately 9kms from the sea to its furthest inland point.  Along the way the waterway twice widens out then narrows again forming what are locally known as the “First Lagoon” and the “Second Lagoon”.  The Warwick Le Lagon Resort is near the beginning of this waterway, the Ramada is approximately 2km up the waterway from there on the First Lagoon and the Holiday Inn is a further 2 kms up the waterway, also on the First Lagoon. In its position mid-way between the two other lagoon-front resorts, the Ramada is very handily located to many of Port Vila’s attractions.

NEW – Luxury Lagoon Boat Cruises
A very welcome addition to the activities on offer at The Ramada Port Vila – a new, twin-pontoon lagoon cruiser “Eleanore by Ramada” is now taking up to 8 guests at a time on memorable 1½ hour cruises on the picturesque Erakor Lagoon departing twice daily from the resort’s Akiriki restaurant’s deck.

The morning cruise departs at 9:30am, the evening “Sunset Cruise” departs at 5:30pm (but this may vary seasonally).

The cruises have quickly become popular and it is now wise to book in advance – Our Specialists can organise a booking as part of your holiday arrangements and include the costs in your holiday package.

Included on the tariff at Ramada Resort Port Vila:
● Buffet breakfast daily
● 500MB complimentary Wifi per room per day.

Getting to and from Ramada Resort Port Vila
We will include arrival and departure airport transfers on a seat-in-vehicle basis in holiday package arrangements as required/agreed. Private car transfers are also available and may be pre-booked. 

The long, winding shores of Erakor Lagoon are home to Ramada Resort Port Vila.  The resort is in a very special location on the lagoon shores where the lagoon is nice and close to Port Vila town, making it an ideal choice for both business and holiday travellers. Two of Port Vila’s other major resorts are located on the shores of the Erakor Lagoon; Warwick Le Lagon Resort & Spa is at the end of the lagoon closest to where the lagoon meets the sea and the Holiday Inn Resort is further up the lagoon where the narrowed lagoon, widens out once again. Ramada Resort Port Vila is located on the wider portion of the lagoon at a point on the lagoon half way between The Warwick and the Holiday Inn.

The Ramada Resort is less than 1km by road from the heart of Port Vila and only around 500m from one of Port Vila’s biggest supermarket (au bon Marche) and handy to several good independent restaurants. Au bon Marche is certainly a walkable distance from the Ramada, but footpaths can be a bit of a problem in places, so it’s probably best to catch one of Port Vila’s handy “Taxi Buses” between the hotel and the supermarket, restaurants and down town as there are normally plenty of these mini buses working around the nearby residential and commercial areas.
