We stayed four days at Seachange Lodge before flying to Santo and came back for another two nights before flying back to Melbourne. The lodge is located along Erakor lagoon and has a cool sea breeze. The rooms are nice and there is a lovely swimming pool on the property. But the best asset is Ian, the manager. He's a...

I was part of a group of 7 who stayed at Vatu House (part of Seachange Lodge, a few doors down from the other lodgings) for 2 weeks, and was extremely satisfied with our time there. The location was ideal, being situated on a quieter back street overlooking the lagoon, yet a large supermarket was just a 5 minute walk...

Comfortable and quiet accommodation on the Erakor lagoon side of Port Vila, not far from shops and a short walk to town centre. Ian was exceedingly helpful, and generous in providing a room upgrade on both occasions I stayed, making it excellent value. The Waterfront Chalet was a great place to relax, literally on the water's edge, and seems ideal...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A truly special place for special people, with an ambience you can't buy. Six units tucked away in an exotic tropical garden. It’s like visiting a friend's house instead of being in a commercial resort. From the Waterside Chalet, to the Garden Cottage that is ideal for two couples or a family group, to the single room studios, the care to detail makes Seachange Lodge that very special place. ... more   less
