Staying in Noumea
French chic in the heart of the Pacific
Once named 'Port-de-France,' urbane Noumea wears its French influences on its sleeves. This picturesque port city is home to an eclectic mix of indigenous Melanesian culture infused with unmistakable Francophile flavours, and it's a great place to bunker down on holiday.
Noumea accommodation counts several Western-style favourites among its many hotels, including the Ramada Plaza Noumea and the Best Western Hotel Le Paris, with the city not only welcoming numerous holiday-makers but also many prominent business makers in what is an important regional economic hub.
Dip your toes in some aquatic-themed luxury
While Noumea is an important South Pacific financial centre, its main attraction are the many beach-fringed resorts which are both scenic and relaxing.
