This resort was a nice surprise. We weren’t expecting such a beautiful place out on the east coast. It’s really a stunning area with all the craggy limestone cliffs everywhere. Our bungalow was very nice, just meters from the beach with great views out the glass doors. The room was very modern, probably recently renovated, I’d say. It was very comfortable, complete with AC, TV, good Wifi, and a small fridge. The place was very quiet so we had a really good sleep. There is a lot of upgrading and renovating going on around the resort, so a little messy and disorganized in places. We opted to eat the buffet dinner at the restaurant and had an excellent feed, albeit a bit pricey. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend it to other travellers.

Lovely location on the beach. Had a beachfront with it's own little pool. Bungalow was nice. They are looking a little bit tired in places so bear that in mind . Wifi didn't initially work but after a reboot it went and so did tv. Had the buffet dinner which was nice albeit a bit pricey but food was good. There was a problem the morning we checked out where the water just stopped working but not sure if it was planned or not! Work being done slowly around the place but would be good if the owners invested a little to attract people back post covid.

I did not actually stay here. In fact, I just had to cancel my booking as I am unable to fly to New Caledonia because I require hospital treatment. I just wanted to mention: 1. The hotel was always very prompt in responding to my questions about when rooms were available, etc. 2. When I informed them about the reasons I had to cancel they didd't charge my credit card the deposit and said they would be no charge. They didn't ask me for medical certificate--They just trusted me. One less thing for a sick person to worry about. Thanks so much to the Hotel Koulnoue Village. This is classy.

We had a beach front bungalow with a lovely view, room was large enough with a modest terrace facing the sea. Unfortunately the next bungalow inland had a terrace directly facing our lodging, so whenever the occupants and their friends gathered there we had to put up with their enthussiastic early breakfast chatter or their alcohol inflamed aperitif talk. it was very windy during our visit, so no chance of snorkeling, without which there was very little to do. The restaurant was a disaster, with waits of up to an hour for food in a crowded room closed in by plastic curtains to keep the wind out.

Returned for two night stay after a solo visit in 2017. Welcome was friendly with welcome fruit juice - staff were friendly throughout. Staff speak little English but are patient with one’s limited French. Restaurant menu is very limited however we enjoyed very generous serves of lamb and deer. The cats near restaurant reported previously now appear to be replaced by dogs but they don’t intrude on the tables. However the rooms are now showing their age and would benefit from maintenance- the view was good from our beachfront bungalow however the first signs of maintenance problems were when trying to enter room - staff had to make three attempts over 10 minutes to gain entry through the electronic keying system. We reported the ceiling fan not working in my best French to be told they don’t work anymore (disconnected I assume). The air conditioning is very ineffective during the day but very effective at night. The safe stopped working after one hour and the fridge was woefully inadequate- barely kept things more than slightly cool. Not certain if the rat control is effective - it’s reasonable to expect rats in rural beach locations - we did have one visit in the middle of the night looking for food but it scurried into the ceiling - I reported again in my best French! The beach is not for swimming but there is good walk along the black sand/coral beach to view the rock formations from ocean side. So all in all a mixed bag. I believe the friendly staff could be better supported by owners’ investment in maintenance.

This place has all of the ingredients, but misses putting it all together. We stayed in a newly-renovated bungalow which was very nice, but, despite having called in advance to check (I'm a Native French speaker) to check that it comfortably fit our family of 4 it simply wasn't large enough which was very frustrating. They also forgot to mention that the entire region of Hienghene has an 'Interdiction' on swimming on the beaches during the summer months due to the sharks that swim up and down the river, so that was a bit disappointing. The pool is small, not super-clean and a bit chipped and faded and the same could be said for all of the amenities. There's a putt-putt course that would take a day to fix up and make fun, same with the basketball court, which had 2 broken down backboards. The biggest issue (not unusual in New Cal) was the food - they do the Club Med Style buffet, and it is OK, but very expensive (more than $60 a head) and I spent an hour afterwards vomiting most of it up...the breakfast buffet to be fair, is better... It would not take much to make this a very nice place, including some service training.

Dear Sir I thank you for your feedback. The interdiction of swimming is some places in New Caldedonia for the moment ans I am very sorry for that, but it is a punctual fact. I am very surprise that you were sick after having the buffet, and I regret to don't know that when you was here. I thank you for your recommendation and hope to see you back Warm Regards

The bungalows are well renovated and maintained. The staff are very attentive. Dinner buffet is good (although pricey like the rest of New Caledonia). Good location to stay if you want to visit Tao Waterfall and the Oueme Ferry. Our son enjoyed the pool and I loved being able to walk out across the grass and palm trees to the beach. Gorgeous location.

This region is close to authentic indigenous Nw Caledonia. Koulnoue is therefore a luxury stay by local standards. Reception was welcoming, room very nice facing beach, hot water only lukewarm & we were quickly offered a room change, buffet meals huge range, big open grounds and the surrounding area fascinating. I'm not rapt in cats & dogs hanging around but seems cultural. As a birdwatcher i loved the flock of red throated parrotfinch around the lawns.
