There are plenty of resorts around Vila, but if we come back here, we'll be straight back to Aquana. With young children the set up there couldn't have suited us any more. It's a fair trek from town, but there is a free shuttle, should you wish to head in, among a number of other trips that the resort will... More

We were fortunate to find Aquana on our 2nd visit to Port Vila. After our first visit, we decided there was no real need to stay in town as nightlife is very limited and we prefer peace and quiet. On our recent low season stay, we happen to be the only guests which was wonderful and allowed us time to... More

We have just returned from 10 magical days with our 3 children (3, 6 and 9) at Aquana Beach Resort and feel so grateful to have found this place. Everything about the resort is professional, clean, warm, child friendly and polished which is so rare these days. The food - Marcel is one of the best chefs we have ever... More

Vanuatu is listed as one of least developed countries in the world, and it is unrealistic to expect every comfort and modern convenience from home to be as it is at home when you travel to such countries. Despite the inherent challenges of running a family business in such conditions, Aquana Beach Resort, in my view, comes up trumps. This... More

We recently spent a week at the Aquana with our two sons aged 10 and 17, it was a fantastic experience . There was no squabbling and the boys spent a lot of time together (which doesn't usually happen due to the age difference. The view each day was spectacular as was the sunsets. We did very little except spoil... More

What can one write about perfection?? The best word to describe the experience at Aquana would be; easy! From the special requests via email in the months leading up to our stay with Fabienne to the farewell hugs! This is a very special resort, it definately caters to families (we deliberately went in their quiet time as didn't want to... More

As a return guest to Aquana Resort, my family and I spent a wonderful 3 weeks there in January 2014. The attentiveness of the nannies never cease to amaze us! From swimming with the kids all day, taking them shopping in Port Vila, canoeing to an adjoining island for an afternoon of snorkelling or playing Uno for countless hours –... More

I recently stayed at aquana beach resort with my mum for a week to get away from work and city life here in Sydney. We were greeted on arrival with a welcome mock tail which was absolutely delicious, as our bags were taken to our bungalow for us. We were escorted around with the receptionist pinpointing all the activities the... More

Our family of 4 [with children 3 and 5] stayed for 5 nights in January this year. Everything met our expectations for the price we paid. Like some, we didn't go there expecting the 'Hilton' so like others we were not disappointed in the clean, tidy and comfortable accommodation that was on offer. The owners and staff were nothing but... More

The best thing about the Aquana is the service you get staying there. For me, it was worth it for that alone. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We wanted to do all these activities (abesailing, ziplining, scuba, cruises, blue lagoon, dune buggies, etc.) The staff booked everything for us, and booked taxies so we didn't even have to think....
