At high tide the water comes to almost under the balcony! Gorgeous balcony with chairs and a hammock to chill in while listening to the after gently lapping the shore.... More

I will be staying at the resort from Wednesday the 23rd to Saturday the 26th for a long awaited holiday with my best friend :) I'll be sure to post a review once I return! This is my first holiday overseas, I'm looking forward to it! I'll be visiting Champagne Beach and a few of the other attractions nearby.

We recently stayed during the category 2 cyclone, have to stay we quiet enjoyed the experience. This was largely due to the staff. We found they went out of their way to help the management were also very good. I have my own accommodation business so know when a place is of a good standard, keep up the good work.

Excellent overall experience and the best part of 10 days in Vanuatu. They upgraded us to the Deluxe Bungalow for no extra charge and we didn't even have to ask! The hammock on the front porch overlooking the water was a favorite spot to relax. All staff are friendly and professional and showed genuine concern that we had our every... More

This was our first time staying at oyster and will certainly be the first of many stays at this relaxing resort! We loved every minute of it- from casually ringing the big tin bell for the boat to come over and pick you up, the gorgeous outlook of the resort- set amid ocean, bay and rivers within the marine park-...

We just loved Oyster island. The bungalows are are comfy, have great views over the water and a large porch. We spent hours sitting there doing nothing. but relax. We paddled to the blue hole which is about 45 minutes from Oyster. What a great experience! The meals were delicious, the service friendly and efficient. We would definitely stay there... More
