On a recent trip to Noumea we stayed at Le Meridien Hotel. My wife and I decided to spend a few days here and were delighted with our large hotel room with a generous balcony offering sweeping views of the ocean.
Although in need of a major refurbishment, the room was very comfortable and clean. We liked the full sized bath with separate shower recess. It was a pleasure to find two fluffy bath robes behind the door.
The property has a feeling of elegance and although as I have said, needs a major refurbishment, this does not distract from its charm. This is a hotel I would happily return to.
Our package included an excellent buffet breakfast served in a glass walled setting that overlooked the Hotel’s very spacious gardens and pool.
LIKES: Well situated, other hotels near by, a short walk to the nearest shops and more restaurants that abound in the Anse Vata area. All the staff we encountered had big smiles and went out of their way to make our stay a most pleasant one. The breakfast buffet was truly outstanding with an abundance of fresh food. The hotel had all the usual facilities one would expect of a 5 star property, although my rating is 4 star due to some of the older fixtures and fittings. Once refurbished, the hotel would definitely rate 5 stars. Perhaps the best hotel in Noumea.
DISLIKES: Small screen TVs need replacing.
Don’t forget to take European power point adaptors 240V.
