Nasama Resort

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for a week in February and although it was supposed to be the wet season we found that the weather was good and sunny throughout our stay. The complex is spread from the main Pango Road to the water’s edge . Pango Village is a couple of klms down the road from the resort. There is a sandy beach outside the apartments but if going to the sea reef shoes are needed as the coral is quite sharp. Free ref shoes are available for guests. There are the usual water sports and equipment is provided sometimes with only a small charge. The complex also has a small shop where necessities can be provided. The food was excellent and with an every changing menu. There are regular buses into Villa. It can be a rewarding experience travelling on them. The staff at the resort are very obliging and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are all genuinely very friendly and we found this right throughout Vanuata. We paid our account on the morning we left and about a week after we returned home I received an email from the manager saying they had rechecked our bill and I was due a refund of over $110. I have never experienced anything like this in the past. One can oly assume that attention to guests is a very high priority with the management. For this reason alone it is worth staying at the Nasama Resort.

Had so much fun here! Glorious views each day. Nasama is beautiful and the staff are extremely friendly, happy and attentive. Security was on watch 24/7 so we always felt safe in Vanuatu. The food from their restaurant was always fresh and delicious. Our 2 bedroom apartment was exactly what we needed. Bus fare to town is $1.50 and I'd recommend finding a local driver to take you sight seeing rather than pay for individual tours. Thanks to all the staff at Nasama, we hope to be back!

My family and I spent 7 wonderful nights at Nasama Resort. It was a perfect spot for a holiday with young children. The loved playing in the sand and swimming in the rock pool. Staff were always friendly but never too intrusive. We ate at Cafe Vila a few times and it was really nice. We visited the markets a few times and then cooked our own meals or just enjoyed the fresh fruit in the beautiful outdoors. I have a few comments for fellow travellers, not at all as a criticism of our stay, just as some information: - We found that most mornings when we went to the lagoon there was quite a bit of rubbish, I would recommend taking down a plastic bag to put rubbish in. It is not the fault of resort staff, it just seems that there is a lot of rubbish washed up overnight. There was a big rusty metal drum on the bottom of the lagoon, we tried to get it out but it was too heavy. - We found that some of the bus drivers waiting at the front of the resort could be a little 'pushy' - for example, one day when we went to the Secret Garden the driver told us we would need to pay for him to sit out the front and wait for us as there were no other buses out that far. He also told us there was not much to do there and we would be done in 30 minutes (we spent the entire da there). We didn't do this and there was no problem at all getting back to the resort in a bus (and the return fair was half the price). We found it easier to start walking up Pango Road once we left the resort and then taking a bus that just pulled up for us (these buses usually also had locals as passengers so it was nice to chat).

We had a great time here on first trip to Vanuatu. Our first floor room was large and spacious with full kitchen facilities and a large balcony overlooking pool and private beach, which was 30 meters away. Sand washed away a little so a bit rocky. King sized comfortable bed. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Plenty of swimming, snorkeling and canoeing. No mozzies, WiFi on the balcony and outside. Restaurant is not cheap but the meals we had were calamari ever! The resort is 5 minutes away by mini-bus from Port Vila CBD. $2 each way. We would stay here again.

Nice room and all stuff for cooking. The bathroom was clean with a level of a 3 star hotel. The staff was very friendly and the service was there very helpful. Regarding the resort itself.... it needs some renovation. The pool was quite nice for a relax day but the sun beds were aged with smelly mattress. I personally used only the sun bed without mattress. The floor was dirty. The water was clean. The beach is not like on pictures. It was rocky and the path to the beach was not really renovated. The gym area is old and rusted. There was no beach bar near the pool. To get a drink you have to walk far to the restaurant near the entrance of the resort near the road.....unless you order from restaurant and they bring it to you. The best plus on this resort is the room. Big and spacious. Nice balcony facing sea. Good air cond and shower. Another plus...the mattress king size was very comfy.

Very well priced accommodation with everything you need. It’s a little out of town but there are so many private minibuses - I never had to wait more than a few minutes for a ride. There are communal laundries and the resort restaurant is very good. The security guard does arrivals and departures and was very helpful even though I was leaving around 5am.

Our room had a great view of the Ocean, there was a good sized balcony for watching the sea and drying snorkel gear etc. The kitchen was well equipped with a small starter pack provided. Air con worked well but with bifold doors to the balcony was not that necessary. We did not experience any bugs or mosquitoes. The standard of cleanliness was high , towels were replaced frequently. There is an infinity pool and easy access to the sea. We swam mainly in the sea and also enjoyed a great afternoon snorkeling just off the resort. Kayaks are available. The on site restaurant , Cafe Vila has a great selection of food with some excellent fresh caught fish and lobster. At all times the staff were friendly and assisted us with any requests and tourist information. Just at the main entrance of the resort were frequent local buses with about a $2 one way fare. Wifi was a bit intermittent, but manageable.

We stayed as a family of 4 in December 2017 in 2 beach view villas. We found the resort to be good value for money with an excellent restaurant, fine pool, and the villas were spacious, clean and well appointed, so we could do some of our own cooking.The resort is well located so that you could pretty well always hop in a passing bus out the front to go to town. The only drawback I found was that the beach is small and rocky, though once you get beyond the breackers the water is very nice

This is an incredibly nice and modern resort and very good value for money. It is super clean, quiet with good facilities, polite staff, an excellent restaurant with plenty of GF options and the management is simply brilliant. I stayed there over the Christmas period 2017. Our beachfront room had an incredible view and a very pleasant atmosphere. I don't have children so it was also nice not being at a resort purely aimed at families with lots of children as well. I am very fussy about cleanliness and the overall look or feel of any resort or hotel so was thrilled to randomly walk into such a mint resort. I will definitely return and can highly recommend it to anyone.

We had a wonderful start to the year with 5 relaxing days at the Nasama Resort. All the rooms have a patio/balcony and are sea facing. It had all the self-contained facilities we needed - microwave, stove top, fridge, TV and DVD player. What we loved about the resort that it was extremely quiet and completely relaxing - you could either spent time at the beautiful infinity pool, or on the sand at the private beach cove. There are kayaks for use of the guests, and snorkelling off the shore, which we enjoyed. Going to sleep with the sound of the ocean so close was so soothing, and it is well worth getting up for sunrise - such a beautiful time of the day straight in front of the beach. We enjoyed the meals at Cafe Vila, and the staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. We could catch a local 'bus' for about $1.50 per person to the town, although we ended up hiring a car for a few days to do more exploring around the island. It may be a bit smaller than some of the other large resort hotels (we have stayed in Port Vila before at a lovely 5 star resort) but this is a lot more laid back and great for families. We would definitely stay here again.
