In the heart of Port Vila, the four-star Grand Hotel and Casino lives up to its name, offering guests luxury with an affordable price tag.
Vanuatu’s premier corporate Hotel and Casino with eight floors and a stunning waterfront location with unobstructed views, each one of the Grand’s 74 rooms and suites has absolute waterfront views. The hotel where high-level government officials and VIPs choose to stay while in Vanuatu, the Grand has hosted significant names in the sport and corporate worlds; some of them so big in fact, that they must remain nameless.
The elegant lobby of the Grand welcomes you to the hotel with its luxurious and classic-contemporary décor, high ceilings and panoramic views of the ocean beyond. The half-moon swimming pool, located right by the water, is the perfect place to relax after a day of business meetings or island adventures, with a welcome evening cocktail in hand. If you need further de-stressing, Aromessence Spa offers the latest pampering treatments for that extra relaxation, including hot stones and full body massage, full manicures and pedicures, facial treatments and body scrubs.
Elegantly appointed, all rooms at the Grand enjoy designer décor with stylish furnishing, high-quality finishings and all mod-cons. Every room features a modern bathroom with separate walk-in shower and bath, a king size bed and its own private balcony.
The ‘Panorama Suites’ located on each corner of the building provide 60sqm of luxurious and contemporary open plan accommodation with spectacular 280 degree views of the harbour. On the top floor, the three executive suits and the Penthouse offer super-spacious suites with main bedroom and separate living room, Jacuzzis, and stunning views of the Harbour from the tallest building in Vanuatu.
The Grand’s main restaurant, Crystals, has three dining options to suit every mood. The main dining room is furnished with elegance and full air-con comfort while the elevated outdoor terrace offers great views of the harbour and more casual dining.
On the menu, choices such as The Grand Fully Loaded Burger, Gourmet Sandwiches, or Lamb Masala for lunch are but a few of mouth-watering options. For dinner, how about Smoked Salmon and Tuna Tartare, Pork Tuluk and Seared Scallops, Homemade Prawn Ravioli or Baked Rack of Lamb?
You don’t have to stay at the Grand to enjoy the fantastic Crystals restaurant and this is a place favoured by the local and expat community who enjoy the weekly lunch specials and themed Middle Eastern and Curry nights as well as the very-well designed menu.
Having a bite by the pool is also an option, and the Cabana Bar offers full a la carte menu as well as a tapas menu. Every Friday there is a happy hour from 5.30pm with free canapés, 800vt mojitos and tunes by great DJs right by the pool.
For an elegant and entertaining evening, visit the Grand Hotel Casino. With three gaming levels, the casino offers fifteen gaming tables, including games of black jack, roulette, texas hold’em poker and bacarrat, a total of 136 poker machines and a VIP gaming room with six tables located on the top floor. All this elegance does not necessarily come with a high price tag and The Grand Hotel and Casino offers great seasonal specials and local deals.
