Inspired by minimalistic Thai architect Duangrit Bunnag and Australian Troppo Architects, the design translates the Bali’s feel of indoor and outdoor private oasis and modern minimalism, into a building which reflects the Vanuatu materials and culture as well as reminding of typical coastal Italian dining.

The thatched roof structure resembling a traditional canoe upside down, flows among large square white buildings with tropical gardens and high long coral walls which accompany the view right to the blue of the ocean, making this 455m2 construction over 3,096m2 of prime commercial (can be changed to residential) land, a very special place including:
Two luxury rooms with ensuite, double SPA, private deck, garden and outdoor kitchen under thatched roof, 2 extra rooms with 3 toilets and outdoor basins and shower, an open plan stainless steel 36m2 commercial kitchen and service area, large living of 104m2 under thatched roof with open bar and 54m2 hardwood decking and pergola right over the ocean with spectacular views, plus three private beach booth and lengthy walkways and steps to the 35m private beach and crystal coral water.

Features include: white sand concrete floors with lava stones Vanuatu sand drawing mosaics; kwila hardwood; ceilings lined with native hand weaved mats and timber patterns; sealed grey concrete walls; thatched rooves with timber structures painted in white and tight with marine rope, giving a feeling of majestic, rustic and yet classy areas; solid white washed new locally made wooden lounges, tables and bar stools; coral walls with light effects; garden walkways, white flower vines, lush frangipani and palm trees among the geometry of all spaces.

This amazing location, with its absolutely tranquil and crystal clear waters, its immaculate reef and marine life, as well as incredible sunsets, is an absolute gem of the South Pacific.

Havannah Harbour is located on the West coast of Efate Island, about 25 km from the Vanuatu Capital Port Vila and 15 min drive from Bauerfield International Airport.
The coastal area is facing West, sheltered from the prevailing South-Easterly winds and well protected from high seas by the two large Islands of Lelepa and Moso.
Such a sheltered and safe place was a US Navy base during WWII, now offering wrek sites for diving, a small WWII museum and many fragments of the old glass Coca Cola bottles washing up on the beach.

Completely deserted until 20 years ago, the developed side of the Hourbour is now home for many lucky expatriates who pioneered the area, well predicting its amazing real estate potential.
Of the 114 developed allotments that started selling some 14 years ago, only 45 are still vacant and only 10 waterfront are currently on the market for sale or resale.
The area now features 1 Award Winning High End Resort & SPA, 1 High End Fishing Charter Retreat, 1 Health Retreat & SPA, 1 Local Bungalows Accommodation, 4 Restaurants including Italian, Seafood and Local Cuisine, 1 Marina, 4 + Sport Fishing Charters, 1 Shop and Service Station, Day Tour Operators and a soon to open Shopping Centre.

This amazing part of the world is home to incredibly beautiful beaches, immaculate snorkelling and diving sites, Marlin sport fishing, turtle breading and other assorted marine life. The lake like calm waters are ideal to safely practice any water sport and the nearby windy Northern islands offer even ideal spots for incredible kite surfing.

Given the uniqueness and opportunities offered by this location, it is no surprising that Havannah Harbour real estate has not suffered any drop in prices during the GFC and it is highly sought after.
These are some numbers for the past 5 years:
32 blocks/properties SOLD
14 BUILDINGS (luxury Villas and Commercial Operation) completed
