During our 5 day holiday in Vanuatu, we based ourselves at the Aquana Beach Resort. The staff are very friendly & reception is extremely helpful. Our 2 bedroom bungalow was always immaculately clean & the beach front environment makes it a perfect place to stay.The resort is a half hour drive away from town so if you are planning on... More

We first visited Aquana in August 2012 - see previous review "It's All in the Extras". At he time we said that we would definitely be back so here we are. Aquana retains its magic for us and we will be extremely hesitant to head home tomorrow. Beautiful tranquil location, fabulous owners and staff, excellent accommodation (Bungalow 8 at far... More

We've just returned from 10 days at Aquana and wow, the resort certainly lived up to everything we'd read and more. Our bungalow was clean and contained everything we needed, the swing out the front was a hot with our boys and the block out blinds made naps a breeze. The nannies were amazing!! Valerie and her team do such... More

If you've got kids under 4, and ESPECIALLY younger ones, then this is paradise!!! The reason for this, are the roaming nannies who watch over your kids so you don't have to. To give an example - as we got back from a tour and sat down for a drink, our 21-mo toddled off towards the beach front. As we... More

My mother and I recently returned from a 7 night stay at the wonderful Aquana Beach Resort. I can't praise this resort enough. Every single staff member that we encountered went out of their way to ensure that our trip was one to remember. Our 2-bedroom bungalow (situated in the 2nd row back from the water) was just the right... More

Our family of 4 ( boys 7 and 9) just returned from 8 amazing nights at aquana. The children loved the nannies and they were the loveliest ladys. The resort is beautiful and our beachfront bungalow had amazing views straight out to the water. I must say that even with the great reviews on here the place and whole experience... More

I have just returned from my week in Vanuatu, staying at the Aquana Beach Resort. As many travellers do, I read about other people’s experiences when they travel. As such I was amazed to read about 3 reviews, one “Poor" and two “Terrible” about Aquana. After reading the said reviews as compared to the positive reviews, all I can say... More

The resort was small and personable. The bungalows were spacious and clean. The staff were lovely and courteous and were fantastic with our two young children. The food was nice, but pricey. The location was stunning and quiet, but was down a very long dirt track road which was very bumpy, especially with a 3 month old and a 6... More

We stayed in mid July- had 7 nights in Vanuatu. Stayed first 4 at Warwick and last 3 at Aquana. Depends what you want but we MUCH preferred Aquana. Small friendly family atmosphere, they seem to have a fair idea of what their guests are up to most of the time. If you go into town they'll give you one... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in 2012, Aquana Beach Resort has become Vanuatu's leading three and a half star family friendly boutique Resort and this has largely been due to the unique childcare approach it has developed and the quality of the food from it's very popular casual dining restaurant. Located 25 minutes from the International Airport and only 15 minutes from the town centre, Aquana is situated in a large lagoon surrounded by groups of deserted islands and pristine reefs. Aquana has a 150 meter long man-made beach great for children to be able to play free from danger and for adults to relax on and soak up the sun. Aquana consists of 16 bungalows all located within 30 meters of the lagoon front and a hot a la carte and a continental breakfast are both included in the room rate and the resorts idyllic surroundings provides the perfect location for weddings and functions. ... more   less
