Double Tree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort

With the closest overwater bungalows to Australia, L’Escapade Island Resort is located in a 200ha nature reserve on Ilot Maitre.

Save yourself a trip to Tahiti and escape to Double Tree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort – the closest overwater bungalows to Australia! – for your holiday paradise. The Resort is part of the group of hotels including the Hilton Nouméa La Promenade Residences and the Nouvata Parc, so guests can be confident it’s well looked-after and offers luxury, comfort, elegance and style to all who visit.

Featuring three styles of bungalow, with 69 in total, the resort is mainly known for their overwater bungalows, which float above the shimmering blue water like a mirage in an oasis. What says paradise more than diving off your private terrace into the water below? But there’s more to the resort than that, of course! Located within a 200 hectare natural reserve, some of the locals who frequent the resort are a local species of sea turtle! The resort also boasts an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, bar, room service and a variety of equipment for rent to participate in the variety of water sports on offer.

Double Tree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort is secluded from the hustle and bustle of central Nouméa and is reached by a 20-minute boat ride from Anse Vata. This offers guests peace, serenity and privacy during their New Caledonia holidays, where it’s so easy to kick back and listen to the wildlife while sipping a cocktail or floating around your room. The Resort is still close enough to visit the local restaurants and bars in Nouméa, however, or do some boutique shopping for clothes or jewellery at some of the European retailers.

Immerse yourself in the extensive range of activities available to you around the Double Tree by Hilton Noumea Ilot Maitre Resort. Set within a 200-hectare natural reserve experience the beauty of mother nature at the stunning marine reserve where a local species of sea turtle are frequent visitors. Dive off your private terrace of your overwater bungalow into pristine waters of the Pacific and discover an oasis of colourful coral and tropical fish. Make use of the equipment available at the resort and hit the water with a paddleboard, canoe or jet ski. For a New Caledonian cultural experience pay a visit the Tjibaou Cultural Centre or go on an island cruise. Catch the 20-minute boat ride to the city of Noumea and visit the local restaurants and bars or check out the European retailers for French influenced boutiques. Or perhaps, simply do nothing but relax in the tropical paradise of your bungalow while sipping a pina colada and watching the marine life right below your feet.

We had a wonderful relaxing 3 days on this island and found the facilities excellent. Our over sea bungalows were perfect and it was like being in an aquarium with a wide variety of fish, turtles and the sea snakes. The food was fantastic – and staff so friendly and helpful.
