    Outstanding Getaway in Erakor Lagoon

    by

    OK, I have to confess I didn't actually stay at this hotel, but I did spend some time strolling around the property and I think that if I had stayed here I would have enjoyed it immensely.

    Despite the fact that the resort covers all of Erakor Island, I still found it worthwhile to walk around the beaches here and while away an afternoon admiring the hotel's amenities and its view of Erakor Lagoon. I also enjoyed the little ferry ride from the mainland. What can I say--I'm easily amused!

    Unique Quality: The Erakor Island Resort is all about location. Put simply, it can't be beat. The island is small and covered completely by the resort. Accomodation consists of small, self-contained bungalows which all seem to have beachfront land. There is a pleasant bar and restaurant, but I checked the menu and the prices were unexpectedly high (for a backpacker, anyway), starting at around US$10 for the smallest meals. Beside the restaurant is a nice little sand spit which fades into the clear lagoon--a perfect spot to sunbathe.

    Directions: accessible by short ferry ride from the mainland in Port Vila

Island on an Island hotel

by chat2howie about Erakor island

Stayed on a small island that is about 200 metres from the mainland, there is a ferry back and forth a few times an hour. You stay in small huts on the island, very cool.

Affordable, Comfortable, Accessible

by jewels63 about Pacific Lagoon Apartments

If you are on a tight budget, but want a holiday suitable for a mature couple who need their comforts, or a family - consider this quiet, friendly patch of self-contained villas.

You need to have your own kitchen to keep the costs down on eating out - Vanuatu is a terrific place, but food is expensive from restaurant eating to supermarket.

Vanuatu's capital Port Villa is a five minute bus ride, which you hail down outside the door. The staff will tell you how to get around efficiently. There are public phones to arrange taxi's or day trips etc. This was our first adventure as empty-nester couple in 2006, so it was terrific to find that our accommodation was at the mouth of the Erakor Lagoon, opposite the Erakor Island Resort.

They are very generous providing non-residents free use of their five minute ferry ride over to their sandy beach, where you can get a cold drink from the bar, or go over for a meal.

The best was being able to use their kayak/canoes (which I had never done before).

Erakor Resort - a little tiny island!

by angelundercover about Erakor Resort

Erakor Resort is highly recommended! Great for total relaxation!
Stylish yet casual situated on a 16 acres island!

We stayed at the Erakor resort.It provides a small paradise where you can relax and indulge on all that the resort has to offer.
Erakor resort, is a small island only 2-3 min ride on a small ferry from Port Villa.
The ferry operates 24 hours a day, courtesy of the resort
The accommodation in the resort consists of bungalows that can accommodate couples and families.
Each bungalow is nested amongst coconut trees
All of them are only a couple of footsteps from the water. The beautiful Polynesian decor in the rooms marries with modern facilities. You just have to open the bedroom doors and there is the beautiful warm water of the Pacific at your feet.
A stroll around the island takes 20 minutes. The walk takes you amongst native trees and plants and exotic flowers, through to the open chapel where a lot of couples chose to get married.
Then you come face to face with the tempting Erakor Resort Spa facilities. The choices of massages and skin treatments are endless and the only problem one is faced with …is which treatment to have first! The path will take you to the resorts restaurant.
Roxy's Restaurant on the island provides a decadent menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner……..not to mention the mouth watering seafood!!
Dining on the Restaurants verandah over the water, with views of port villa is an experience in it self.

The island has a small beach, with umbrellas and sun beds. Guests have access to free non motorized sports. There is a Volley ball court near by and a few hummocks swaying over the water.
But reading a book in the Pacific sun , with a the occasional dip in the warm water is the best sport of all.
The two friendly island dogs- Duke and Roxy-will often keep you company on the beach. Roxy spends much of her day chasing fish in the shallow waters where Duke greats the guests at the jetty.
Neptune the cat may visit you in your Bungalow, and take a nap on your verandah.

The staff on the island are friendly, courteous and very professional.
The Polynesian- style reception offers a billiard table, internet access, TV, and a public phone.
But I am sure once on the island the last thing on your mind will be the TV and internet!!
The sea, the atmosphere and the people will capture you!!!...I promise.
For visitors with kids:
It has a volley ball court and has a billiard table , a TV at the reception area only, and you can borrow board games. Baby-sitting is 2500 Vat / 3 hours I think. BUT …NO KIDS club!...and no pool…..so the Le Meridien may be more entertaining for the kids…..but you can catch the free ferry to Erakor( only 2-5 min ride) and spend a bit of time on the island beach. You can do the same with Iririki resort but they do not allow kids under 12 there. A couple stayed at Erakor and then a few days in Iririki and they said Erakor was much better.
A friend of mine had gone a few months ago to the Le Meridien and he liked it….but I didn’t get any tips on the kids facilities as he has no kids!
Overall I felt the Erakor Resort was best suited to Adults.

Laze on the Lagoon

by worldgypsie about Lagoon Beach Resort Appartments

I stayed at Lagoon Beach for over 12mths due to work commitments in Vanuatu the accomodation is a 16 appartment 1st class resort - upstairs (one king bed and either two single king or a king bed in second bedroom (+sofa bed in living room downstairs)- laundry and bathroom - downstairs fully contained kitchen and living area with sat TV and DVD - each appartment has house keeping either daily short term or weekly long term - covered private outdoor patio with table and chairs. Located on Erakor Lagoon with a white sand beach enables you to swim or paddle a canoe (provided at no charge) amongst the many fish species and multitude of starfish that inhabit the lagoon. Laze by the resort salt water pool and get refreshments from the pool bar cafe/restraunt. This is a perfect logation for a quiet romantic getaway or vacation with children (during peak season a 'kids club' runs with activities and outings). Not recomended for people with ambulation difficulties due to stairs Beautiful lagoon views - staff only too happy to help with anything you require - childrens play ground and vast grassed areas for running or games and beautiful tropical gardens - easy access to transport or tours booked through tour desk - 5mins from central town - Ni-Vanuatu manager and staff - airport transfers - walk to other resorts or casino within 5mins - Melanesian Feast nights with the Banks Island Snake dancers and local Erakor string band to dance the night away or you are welcome to try your hand at playing thier musical instruments - market trips to the busy market place where you can sample and buy beautiful tropical fruits - the fully self contained kitchen is ideal for families that are budget watching or have special dietry needs or just wish to cook thier own meals

Excuse Me

by SarahatJPC

Hi!!

I need a commercial water transport provider in vanuatu for my tourismproject. Could you tell me the name of a water taxi service in Vanuatu and possibly a bit about it?

Thaks
Sarah

Re: Excuse Me

by Travmad

I don't remember of there being a water taxi service there.

Re: Excuse Me

by CliffClaven

Why don't you google "water taxi" and "Port Vila" and see how many hundred hits you get?

Re: Excuse Me

by Marianne2

Port Vila has a ferry services to nearby Iririki Island, and another to Erakor Island, but they might not be commercial ventures -- as I recall, they were free, so they might be government services? Maybe check online for the resort on Iririki Island to see how its guests get over to the mainland.

Re: Excuse Me

by SarahatJPC

Re: Excuse Me

by SarahatJPC
