I have stayed at Kaiviti the last few trips to Port Vila. It is conveniently located close to Bon Mache for all supplies and only a short walk to the markets and town. The pool area is excellent and well maintained. The staff are welcoming and helpful, I would recommend a stay at Kaiviti if in Port Vila

In the lockdown, i was fortunate to be accomodated at the Kaiviti Motel for about 3 months. The self contained rooms, the friendly staff and the great location (near major supermarket, parliament, walking distance to Port Vila) and good restraunts added to a great homely experience for me. While the rooms were cleaned once, the communication line with the hotel and the manager in particular was always open. They were very responsive which contributed to my memorable experience. It was home and i looked forward to coming back at the end of the day. The great thing about the rooms...(mine was Room 16) was that i could cook my own meals and refrigerate the left overs, good TV connection and firm bed. I would stay again here if i return to Vila....

Room quality very poor - needs substantial overhaul from the current 1950's look and feel. Staff are very friendly, pool side area very comfortable. Laundry shared facilities very poor - not all machines work. Other nearby hotel rooms have laundry facilities in each room. Internet and TV services very limited.

I have been to Vanuatu three times now with Rotary International on service project work mainly on Tanna Island. I have stayed now six times with the Kaiviti Resort and each time the service and assistance I have received has been first class. When arriving from Australia each time our flights have arrived around midnight and every time all has been in readiness when we finally reached the motel.My last trip in October/November 2019 was with a small team of four and again everything was first class. Each time I have stayed on for a couple of days before returning to Australia and we will continue to use the Kaiviti as our Vanuatu/Port Vila base of operations. The motel is a short walk to the Port Vila CBD and provides excellent value for money. As unpaid volunteer Rotarian team members paying all our own costs, value for money is very important.
