The history and values of our hotel
in New Caledonia
At the origins of the Hotel Gondwana Nouméa, there was Le Lutetia. Historic hotel in New Caledonia, among the oldest in Noumea (created in 1956), the Lutetia has, for many years, been the place of welcome for Caledonians from the bush or the islands, who found accommodation in the center -city at low cost.
In 2008, the new managers dreamed of a new establishment looking to the future and above all eco-responsible. The specifications are ambitious and dense, and it will be 9 years of studies and time to obtain funding that will lead to the Hotel Gondwana** Nouméa.
A family establishment committed to prices and the environment, the Gondwana Hotel is a universe in its own right. The family, the social bond, the community are at the heart of the hotel’s values, which is why it offers innovative services to continue to “feel at home”.
We are passionate about our job as hoteliers, and about the values we uphold. Our Hotel Gondwana City Art reflects this.
We took 9 years to realize our project, we needed perseverance, confidence and tenacity.
Without having compromised ourselves, we are happy to have gone to the end of our vision, which is based on strong values.
At Hotel Gondwana, we are proud of our New Caledonian roots and like to value the diversity of our cultures.
The ridge spiers visible at the reception, symbols of the customary areas of the mainland, the landscapes and local smiles of the paintings decorating the rooms, the guaiac poles and the plant species of the patio illustrate our Caledonian identity.
We also want our hotel to be a living space, for you to feel good there.
Thus, spaces make it possible to meet, to participate in workshops organized within the hotel, to create discussion groups... Community, sharing and bonding have meaning for us and reflect the world in which we love. live and contribute.
Caring parenting is a subject that is close to our hearts, which is why children have their place in the hotel.
We are attentive to the details that parents will notice because we like to welcome children as people in their own right.
For us, ecology is not just about sorting your waste or finding alternatives to air conditioning.
Of course it is, but not only. For us, ecology is a way of life and a broader way of thinking. From the construction of the hotel, now certified HQE (High Environmental Quality), to the style of management of the teams, to the treatment of waste to the consideration of our customers, we are committed to being labeled "Eco- responsible".
