    Yorick Nicholls
    General Manager

    "I was delighted to join Moorings Hotel as its new General Manager in September 2014, when it changed ownership to become the sister property of the flagship The Melanesian Hotel.

    As a fourth generation native expatriate of Vanuatu, I have had the pleasure in also managing such Vanuatu properties as The Havannah, Ratua Private Island and Tropicana Lagoon Resort, providing me great insight in the intricate workings of leadership and the challenges the country reserves.

    It brings me much joy to work with a dedicated new ownership and its devoted team to elevate the brand that is Moorings. We have come far since 2014 and I know that our management has great plans for the property which I very much look forward to implementing in due course.

    At Moorings we aim to deliver the best value waterfront accommodation in Vanuatu, and given our product as a whole, I do believe we achieve this well. I would like to thank all of our past guests, regular guests, future visitors, my fine team of staff and our ownership for the wonderful support we receive daily and look forward to many more years with the company."
