Coconut Palms Resort

Navara Restaurant

Vanuatu lives in synergy with Coconuts as they provide trade and food. However, although everyone in the world thinks they know what a Coconut is, confusion does exist as to whether it is a fruit, seed or a nut! Well it is not a nut. It is, in fact, a seed. A seed which eventually develops into a Coconut tree, before it does it is called a ‘Navara’.

Since opening in 2004, Multi Award winning Coconut Palms Resort has been lucky to work with a variety of Executive Chefs from around the world. Each have offered exciting contributions to our Menu utilising local wholesome ingredients. The result, is a wide array of culinary flavours and dish types from Vanuatu Steak, Fish & Lobster through to classical Italian gourmet. The Italian traditional selections include both pasta and pizza recipes that have been passed down for many generations.

Also traditional, is our unique range of Vanuatu Tapas which is a world first for Vanuatu Dining. Already the subject of glossy international Magazine feature articles, the Menu glorifies traditional Melanesian recipes from around the island nation. The dishes are purely traditional or completely new creations developed over a six month project that included outstanding local Vanuatu Chefs that concluded with the Tapa’s Blong Vanuatu launch on Jamie Oliver’s World Food Day.

We source our produce locally and try to have as much organic items on the menu from our very own plantation as well as other local organic farmers.

Poolside Café

During your stay at the Coconut Palms Resort, you’ll soon discover the Poolside Café is a hub for meeting and making new friends and where, sitting by the pool, you can ‘chillax’ sipping a tasty, tropically inspired cocktail or enjoying Vanuatu's own Arabica coffee. Having recharged the batteries, it’s time to head into Port Vila or take off for another adventure in the Islands – there’s just so much to see and do!

The Wild Pig Bar

”An unexpected surprise in an Urban Resort”Tripadvisor Review September 2014

After dinner in the award-winning Coconut Palms Restaurant or just when you fancy a drink and entertainment in one of the Islands coolest bars, you can head for our ‘Wild Pig Bar’.

First class, friendly service is likely to keep you there for hours and you’ll soon forget you’re on a resort – even a great resort like the Coconut! The Wild Pig is a cool bar for sure with all the normal drinks/ cocktails, great atmosphere and regular stunning entertainment.

Vanuatu Islands are part of the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’. As a tribute to tradition, the Coconut Palms Wild Pig Bar proudly presents a brilliant ‘Fire Show’ family event every Saturday as a perfect ending to dinner in our restaurant.

Reggaeton and zouk music provide an energized atmosphere in the bar – Reggaeton is a distinctive local variation of reggae and the Fire Show ensures awesome music, lots of fire & at the end the kids and adults with energy can take their turn at dancing in amongst it. You’ll enjoy it so much, you’ll want to do it all again!
