Fodor's Expert Review Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa
140 Promenade Roger Laroque, Noumea, South Province, New Caledonia
This all-suites, white, seven-story hotel is right on popular Chateau Royal Beach beside lovely Anse Vata Bay, and looks quite new and nicely kept. Rooms have a crisp appearance with tropical-inspired furniture, and each of the 89 one-bedroom and 19 two-bedroom suites has full kitchens with dishwashers and microwaves, and either mountain, sea, or beachfront views. With grocery stores and patisseries nearby, and the Palm Beach shopping center a little farther away, it's ideal if you prefer self-catering. The free Wi-Fi and Continental breakfasts, along with guest laundry, are welcome perks. Resort facilities include spa, gym, Jacuzzi, huge pool, pool bar, and restaurant. Royal Tera is adjacent to a casino, and it's easy to make the 4-km (2-mile) trip into the city by bus.
