"Our flight was delayed and the airline put us up here. The manager was fantastic, making sure that we had all we needed. She went out of her way to accommodate everyone on what must have been a very stressful day. The room was clean and tidy. Kaiviti is in a great location - walking distance to town and a local supermarket. Having a kitchenette is a bonus. Top spot for those travelling to Vanuatu on a budget."

"Kaiviti is central (5 minutes walking to the city center and 2 minutes walking to the supermarket, buses passes there all the time) which made our stay very easy. The appartement had everything we needed, beds, sheets, towels, kitchen, and it was very clean (and cleaned everday). The staff is lovely and there is a pool (which is fenced, I found that very important, traveling with little ones) to cool down on hot days. The breakfast and meals were yummy and could be delivered to our rooms for lazy nights, yay ! I don’t want to leave the place 😛
Forgot to mention that our room had a view on the harbour and sunsets, it was beautiful!"

"Wonderful Service. The staff at Kaiviti we’re fantastic. Our flight was cancelled and the hotel manager went above and beyond to organise an extra night accommodation for our group of 10 at other hotels (because they were fully booked). The facilities are great and clean and having a kitchen helped to save costs. It’s also really well located being only a 2 minute walk to the closest supermarket."

"The internet was nicely set up and ready to be used, that for me was a breakthrough as we did not have a good experience with (another venue) the last time we had an actual conference meeting! The space was accommodating and the staffs were super helpful. Thank you"
