Getting around Noumea by car to visit all of the GLP properties – Le Promenade, Le Parc – and by ferry for day trip to LÉscapade Island Resort. Words and images by Dee Farrell, Rainbow Tourism Concierge.
GLP Hotels’ holidays resorts include the overwater bungalow hotel on Ilot Maitre – L’ Escapade Island Resort – which floats over a pristine lagoon with gorgeous clear water. It just might be the best spot for a wedding or honeymoon, as many lesbian and gay couples have already discovered.
If you stay. you’ll enjoy the French joie de vivre attitude, right down to the fine wine and dining experience and a swim up bar for pool waders.
In the center of the main tourist area stands the awesome La Promenade Apartment Hotel, distinguishable at night by its purple lighting! It is a Best Western Premier hotel complex that is surrounded by shops and cafes that give it a French Riveria feel. Or Bourbon St. in New Orleans if you happen into the Jazz Club for some sweet New Caledonia prawns and live music.
Overlooking New Caledonia’s lagoon and the lovely Anse Vata beach, “La Promenade” combines the comforts of large, modern apartments with the services and facilities of a 4-star hotel.
Just one block away is Le Parc Hotel – one of three hotels creating the Nouvata Parc Complex – which rightfully can boast about New Caledonia’s largest swimming pool and largest conference and event centre. Who’d want to work in paradise?!
