Itís close by, behind security, and is better than a domestic US airline lounge.

That's actually a really good deal. If you can afford it, you should jump at that offer.

Yes, use Arc en Ciel for any transfers.

Tontouta International is an hour north of Noumea. I would not connect the same day in either direction - I'd stay overnight at Le Meridien Noumea.
