What Our Guests Say


Spacious rooms 路 Helpful concierge 路 Good room service 路 Family-friendly

"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鈥檛 want to leave the place 馃槢
Forgot to mention that our room had a view on the harbour and sunsets, it was beautiful!"

"Have just spent a week at Kaiviti Motel. Loved every minute. Very convenient to shops, cafes, markets, restaurants, and the waterfront esplanade in Port Villa. The pool is great as is the cafe adjacent to the pool. But the best part about it is the staff. Alecia is the young manager of this family-run business, and she could not have been more helpful and accommodating, bending over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay, and giving us heaps of local tips on what to see and do. I will definitely be staying here again."

"Wonderful Service. The staff at Kaiviti we鈥檙e 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鈥檚 also really well located being only a 2 minute walk to the closest supermarket."
