Spent 7 days at this laid back resort, very roomy 2 bedroom with all the conveniences needed to be self contained aside from no music or docking facility. All chalets are separate and well spread around with trees and shrubs to ensure shade and privacy not normally seen in resorts. Still have good views of the sea even back in... More

We had visited Vanuatu in 2013, staying at Holiday Inn and actually had a fantastic time, but wanted something with a little more personality this time around and Island Magic so delivered. I cant believe how big the bungalows are - there was only the 3 of us (me, my husband and my 4 year old) but it was great... More

We loved our little bungalow. It was quiet and peaceful with a lovely spacious feel to it. It was well equipped and it was great to have a washing machine. I'm glad we had a rental car as it was a fair distance (on a bumpy road) to a supermarket or market. I went snorkelling on three occasions with varying... More

We had the most magical time celebrating Christmas in Vanuatu made even more special by feeling so much at home at the Island Magic Resort. The managers and staff are extremely friendly and helpful, always at hand to provide everything you need, they even drove our group in the back of their ute's to the local beach bar to watch... More

Stunning ocean views. Very nice accommodation. Very peaceful and quiet location. Very handy to local attractions. Was nice to be able to cook our own meals from local produce bought from the markets. The BBQ facilities both by the pool and on the decking over looking the ocean are very good. The pool was lovely and not too big, many... More

The Bungalow was very good. Very clean. The managers were very proactive and very helpful in organising things. The views were stunning. There are no restaurants within the facility so you have to shop and cook if you are having meals. Internet was there but not in all places. Overall a very pleasant stay. Very enjoyable. will stay there again... More

When it comes to accommodation in Port Vila, this is going to be our favourite place from now on and we will come here again on our next visit. Island Magic Resort ticks all the boxes: 1) Resort-style accommodation without the resort-kind of clientele. No rowdy crowds while we were there, in fact, we had the whole place to ourselves!...

We so enjoyed our beautiful relaxing week in October, in one bedroom waterfront location ! There was everything we needed, in the very clean, spacious well kept bungalow. Loved the peaceful spot which was exactly as advertised, with friendly, helpful staff. All were great ! David and Jane were lovely and always ready to help - nothing too much trouble.... More

Its location is perfect - close to Port Vila but at the same time in a very peaceful and beautiful place with some of Efate's best attractions like the Summit Gardens, Cascade Waterfalls and Tanna Coffee close by. The grounds look very pleasant and well groomed, and the bungalows are equipped to enjoy your holiday. But best thing about it... More

My family of 4 stayed at Island Magic for 7 days in October 2013. I have two teenaged boys one who has Autism and so this place was perfect for us. As it was quiet and had lots of space for us to move about. I agree with Countrykids70 as we where there the same time! Our favourite day trip... More
