The Havannah Vanuatu: Plan Your Stay

Located in Efate Island, Vanuatu

How to Get There

Located on a secluded corner of Efate Island, The Havannah Vanuatu is a 30-minute drive from Bauerfield International Airport in Port Vila, Vanuatu’s capital city. Road transfers from the airport to the lodge are complimentary, while scenic helicopter transfers may be arranged at an additional cost. The airport receives regular flights from Australia, New Zealand, and the neighboring island nation of Fiji.

What to Expect

Lodge staff are trained in emergency first aid, and an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is available on-site. In the event of a serious illness or injury, doctors and paramedics are a phone call away, and guests may be transported to the nearest hospital or medical clinic in Port Vila. Note that there are no ATM facilities at the lodge. Most major credit and debit cards are accepted as payment; or, you may withdraw cash and convert currency at a bank or ATM in Port Vila.

Weather and Seasons

Vanuatu enjoys a tropical and sub-tropical maritime climate. Summers are hot and humid and last from November to March, with daily temperatures averaging 82° F. Winter lasts from April to October, with daily average temperatures in the low 70s° F. The water is always warm, and rainfall is frequent, though the northwestern coast of Efate Island—where The Havannah Vanuatu is situated—enjoys a drier climate than other parts of Vanuatu.

What to Bring

Pack for the tropics—a bathing suit, sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, sandals, and light, loose-fitting clothing—plus a pair of comfortable, close-toed shoes for excursions and suitable footwear for the beach. Consider bringing a light jacket or sweatshirt for the evenings, especially if you visit during the winter months. Attire at The Havannah Vanuatu is casual and beach-friendly; however, for visits to local communities, guests should dress conservatively, with covered legs and shoulders for both men and women.

Traveling with Family

The Havannah Vanuatu is an adults-only resort and welcomes guests 16 years of age and older.
