Review of the Le Meridien Noumea in New Caledonia

I stayed at the Le Meridien Noumea when travelling in New Caledonia with my husband and young son.  I don’t usually stay in the one place when traveling, however I was attempting to slow down and just relax for this getaway.  Usually I cram all of the sights in and move on so I don’t miss anything.  The Le Meridien turned out to be the perfect place to slow the pace down!

The resort is located on the lovely Anse Veta beach.  It’s a nice secluded 15 minutes away which is great for peace, but close enough that a cab into the city doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.


We stayed in a ”superior” room and whilst it didn’t wow me; it was a decent, clean and modern room.  I can’t really ask for much more.


As far as breakfast buffets go, this one was pretty decent.  The staff didn’t seem to mind when my toddler spilled orange juice everywhere, or decided that apple skins weren’t for him. Like most New Caledonian locals, they seemed to enjoy young children.

The rooms service meals that we ordered were also pretty decent. Because our little boy is picky, we didn’t order anything too fancy (spaghetti bolognese, pumpkin soup etc.) however it arrived quickly and it passed the toddler and parent taste test.


The hotel has a huge pool, a spa, a giant outdoor chess set, and the paddleboards and canoes are free for guests to use.  The grounds are really well maintained with fantastic sunset views of Anse Veta Beach.


I would definitely recommend the Le Meridien resort to other families.
