Welcome to l'Escapade Island Resort located on  Ilot Maitre in New Caledonia's World Heritage Site Coral Reef Lagoon. Ilot Maitre is a special marine reserve that includes a small lagoon island surrounded by a white sand beach, healthy coral reefs, and turquoise lagoon waters.

The four star resort has air conditioned overwater and garden bungalows, a gourmet restaurant and two bars surrounding a waterfall-swimming pool, and a nautical centre with a range of water sports equipment. Access to the resort is via a 25 minute trip over the calm lagoon in the resort's 58 passenger air-conditioned ferry that operates from downtown Noumea.

This is an overview of Noumea

Noumea is the capital and vacation centre of the Islands of New Caledonia in the South Pacific. Noumea is a "French" city, but the 91,000 inhabitants are a very mixed cultural group with French, Melanesian, Polynesian, Indonesian, Vietnamese, and lots of mixtures of these. Over 60% of the population of New Caledonia lives in Noumea.

Noumea is a peninsula on the southwestern end of Grande Terre and the central business district (Centre Ville) is next to one of the best natural harbours in the South Pacific. The lagoon side of the peninsula has two picturesque bays with white sand beaches and is called Anse Vata and Baie des Citrons. These twin bays are the international tourism capital of New Caledonia with hotels, restaurants and bars on the landward side of "La Promenade".

First settled by the French in 1854, Noumea retains close political ties with France. It has excellent schools and public facilities - parks, recreation areas, exercise paths, schools and medical facilities. Today it is the fastest growing city in the South Pacific. There are 23 hotels in Noumea ranging from one to five stars and over 100 Restaurants.
