The Havannah is set on one of the best beaches of Efate, with crystal clear waters overlooking Havannah Harbour, and the islands of Lelepa and Moso. Located on the North West Coast of Efate Island, and just a 30 minute drive from Port Vila, The Havannah is perfect as a secluded retreat yet close enough to the sights Efate has to offer, including Cascade Waterfalls, bush walks, dive sites and Port Vila. Your stay at the Havannah includes complimentary transfers to Port Vila twice daily. We can organise your airport transfers by car, however for something extra special please ask us about arrival by helicopter with a scenic tour along the coastline of Efate.
Getting Here and Away
Flights operate out of Sydney, Brisbane, Auckland, Fiji, New Caledonia and the Soloman Islands. A little known fact is that Vanuatu is so close to our neighbours, so you can be here within a few short hours... only 2 hours from Brisbane, 3 from Sydney or Auckland, or a short 1.5 hour hop from Fiji or Noumea. Please see below for information on airlines and airport transfers.
The national carrier is Air Vanuatu, and if you are looking to travel to the outer islands as well to see one of our volcanoes or other, they offer great packages if you combine the international flight with your domestic flights. Air Vanuatu operates all routes except for the Solomans. Air Vanuatu also provides code share flights with Qantas and Air New Zealand, so you can earn points while you fly towards your next trip! You can check their flights and availability here.
Virgin Australia operates flights 2-3 times a week between Brisbane and Port Vila. Flights are usually each Wednesday and Saturday. To check their availability, click here.
Air New Zealand flies to Port Vila 3-4 times a week (depending on the holiday seasons). They have an addional 2 flights a week which are run by Air Vanuatu as a code share. To check their latest schedule, click this link here.
Fiji Airways (formerly Air Pacific) flies from Nadi or Suva to Port Vila most days - and offers onward flights to New Zealand, Tahiti, Honiara, the USA and Canada. For Fiji Airways flight schedules, click here.
Air Cailin fly twice a week from Noumea to Port Vila - each Friday and Sunday. To find out more, click here.
Solomon Airlines flies from Port Vila to Honiara once a week. To find their timetables and rates, click here.
Please be sure to inform reservations of your flight details (flight numbers and arrival and departure times) prior to arrival so we can book your airport transfers for you. Under Vanuatu law, only transport/tour operators and taxis can provide airport transfers - and hotels and resorts are not allowed to provide this service for their guests.
We work in conjunction with Adventures in Paradise and are happy to book transfers for you using their service. Transfers are AUD $25 per person one way - so $100 return for a couple.
Taxis can be found at the airport, and they have a fixed rate of 8,000vt one way (approx AUD $100) from the airport to The Havannah.
You may also organise a hire car for your stay, however we find that most people are happy to hire a car for just 2-3 days during their stay so they can explore the island... and are otherwise quite content to relax at the resort. Hire car prices vary from around 8,000vt a day (AUD $100) up to 17,000vt per day (AUD $210).
Please note that even if you choose to hire a car or take a taxi, we do need your flight details so we can liaise with the airport in case of flight disruptions, and we have an idea of your ETA. Many flights come in late at night, and if we are not advised of your ETA in advance, we may not have late night reception staff to greet you and show you to your villa.
We'd love for you to stay with us, but we wouldn't want you to miss out. Check out our specials and availability here.
