OPEN­ING three weeks ear­lier than ex­pected, the 80-room, $30 mil­lion Ra­mada Re­sort is the Wyn­d­ham Ho­tel Group’s first prop­erty in Van­u­atu and em­ploys 120 staff. Set on the cliffs of Erakor La­goon, it of­fers breath­tak­ing views of the la­goon’s clear wa­ters and the sandy white beaches of Erakor Is­land. The re­sort is lo­cated just out­side the heart of Van­u­atu’s cap­i­tal, Port Vila, and 15 min­utes from Bauer­field In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

With its bril­liant ar­ray of sea life, in­clud­ing trop­i­cal fish, co­ral, starfish, sea horses and sea cu­cum­bers, Erakor La­goon is con­sid­ered a stun­ning des­ti­na­tion for snorkelling and scuba div­ing. Re­sort guests re­ceive com­pli­men­tary use of snorkelling equip­ment and kayaks, while lo­cal cruise op­er­a­tors pro­vide day trips for snorkelling or div­ing at se­cluded spots. Reef and ship­wreck sites off the coast are ideal for scuba divers.

Ra­mada Re­sort Port Vila of­fers stu­dio rooms, ju­nior suites and two-bed­room suites, all with bal­conies and panoramic views of the la­goon, air-con­di­tion­ing, kitch­enette and satel­lite tele­vi­sion with 30 in­ter­na­tional chan­nels.
