Best Noumea Hotel visited so far!
Clean, elegant, well thought design and decoration. Awesome facilities with big exuberant tropical garden. Big swimming pool between beach and breakfast room. 100% recommended!
We were upgraded to a Superior King Room Ocean View with Balcony. We found everything we needed in the room; sleepers, iron board, mini bar, bathrobe, A/C, ceiling fan with remote control, a baby crib, alarm clock charger with USB ports and plenty of space and comfort.
There was a bottle of water per person per day and a free entrance for 2 pax. to the Tjibaou Cultural Center. In addition, the hotel offers a complimentary coffee per person per day at the hotel's bar Latitude 22!
Our balcony looked right to the ocean and part of the garden on the left hand side. Suites have a wider ocean view. The sunrise was amazing.
We had dinner at Le Faré, the beatiful beachfront restaurant made of several collated "Cases" (typical Melanesian houses). We were told at the reception that there was a BBQ buffet every night, but we were disappointed getting into the restaurant; no buffet that night.
Breakfast: Taken at Le Sextant restaurant in front of the swimming pool and surrounded by the tropical garden. Le Meridien style continental breakfast with all the good fresh choices you can think of; japanese food, fresh made eggs or any other thing you wish for, smoothies, dried fruits,...
CONS: Not enough fresh fruit variety.
Lunch: A a carte in any of the restaurants of the hotel. We did not ate at the property this time.
5. Take a drink or eat at The Roof restaurant built on stilts, which is at 10 min walk from the hotel. The views over the water are amazing.
Very tidy and clean with an extremely well kept garden with lots of different palm tree types and flowers. We adore it!
Le Méridien Nouméa Resort & Spa is part of Marriott hotel chain, thus we were confident on the quality standards. The hotel facilities offer a mixture of contemporary elegance and subtle decoration with motifs of Melanesian culture.
We had a quick and efficient check-in with a refreshment, who doesn't like those little attentions? The room keys were also decorated with pictures (not just plain white). We also got cards for the pool towels.
The staff is attentive and helpful. Always ready to guide or advise. The lady at the breakfast reception offered us a tasty smoothie while she added the Marriott Bonvoy points into our membership account. Loyalty program members have a 10% discount on the breakfast rate and we didn't know that!
Departure from the hotel is at 12 AM, unlike the other hotels we visited in Nouméa, where we had to leave the room at 11:00. This extra hour allowed us to enjoy the beach and the pool after breakfast without any rush.
The hotel has a great general atmosphere where you feel good and satisfied with the service. The little touches in the room and by the staff increase the comfort and tranquility that one seeks in a hotel.
