Luganville, Espiritu Santo
Welcome to Beachfront Resort, a tropical beach side setting on 6 acres with 150 metres of absolute waterfront lawns and gardens, for Luganville’s only true beach side resort located just 2 kms from the town centre and only 15 minutes from the international airport. Far enough out from town to avoid the noise but close enough for that early business appointment, adventure trip or scuba dive.
Beachfront Resort offers excellent accommodation over-looking the sheltered waters of Segond Channel and Aore Island.
Their fully licensed restaurant, The Coolidge Bar & Grill, provides first-class food from both our regular and superb black board menus together with a selection of cold, local and imported beers plus wines from Australia and around the world, all enjoyed in relaxed Melanesian style surroundings overlooking the swimming pool, lawns and tranquil waters of the South Pacific ocean. They also make the best pizzas in town – 8 varieties and 3 sizes – eat in or take away.
All their Dolphin and Manta bungalows are air conditioned and include ceiling fans, ensuite amenities, refrigerator, kitchenette, insect screens and tea and coffee making facilities.
The Starfish Lodge rooms all have en-suites facilities and there’s a large kitchen, TV room and sitting area for the use of our in house guests. The Starfish Lodge is available for the budget conscious traveller, school, diving or sporting groups visiting this tropical paradise.
A buffet style continental breakfast, served in the open nakamal, is included with all tariffs. Enjoy your delicious tropical fruit, toast, cereal and tea or fresh brewed coffee around the pool.
All rooms are serviced daily by our house keeping team and there is plenty of secure, gated, off street parking and night time security.
Local activities include adventure tours to custom villages, ride a horse along a tropical beach, scuba dive on the world’s most accessible ship wreck, the SS President Coolidge, snorkel pristine reefs or an aquatic American WW2 equipment grave site and trek through striking rainforest.
Hire a car and experience the spectacular vista of the island, visit pristine Port Orly, putter around on a scooter or a quad bike, visit coconut plantations and blue holes, paddle a dugout canoe down a pristine river, visit WW2 wrecks, paddle a kayak to another island and explore, trek through a cave and float down a river, grab a rod and catch a big fish, lay back and enjoy a champagne sunset cruise around the islands or laze by the pool soaking up some rays and the tropical atmosphere.
In an effort to be as green as possible, and to reduce their carbon footprint and save costs, Beachfront Resort has installed a range of modern energy saving devices from low wattage lamps, solar hot water heaters to also recommending the local Tusker beer as the bottles are reused by the brewery and not buried. They also recycle aluminium cans - not an easy task on a small South Pacific island.
In The Coolidge Bar & Grill, they use as much locally grown, totally organic produce as possible including Santo’s famous organic beef and seafood thus supporting ni-Vanuatu fishermen, farmers and families and reducing their need for expensive imported goods.
The final stages have been made to the islands hydro power generation scheme, on the Sarakata River, which now generates over 80% of the towns power needs.
For the business traveller looking for affordable short or long term accommodation, for the scuba diver, the adventure explorer or someone just looking for a getaway by the water, the Beachfront Resort has it all.
