We had a group of 14 (8 adults & 6 children aged 6 - 19). Fabienne & Marcel could not be more accommodating to all our requests. It is a small resort but beautiful. Karen (and her staff) in the restaurant thank you for all that you did, that table for our parents wedding anniversary was absolutely amazing. Aru at... More

Aquana is a great resort if you have young kids - lots to do, nannies to keep you entertained, great games and shows. It's a wee way off the beaten track and the lagoon isn't the most beautiful but it certainly makes for a restful holiday for parents. Recommend the snorkelling trip! Like all of Vanuatu it seems prices are... More

We booked this last minute, based on its excellent rating for childcare/free kids club. We have a four year old, who was happy to roam free, made friends easily and enjoyed the rather cold but very attractive, small swimming pool. Loved doing crafts and drawing in the kids club. Our one year old (20 months) was the wrong age for... More

Our family of 11 people (including 3 kids under 12) have come here three times during our stay. The first occasion on Monday night was for dinner and a show (fire dancing). Lovely dinner- decent pricing. Kids club available where the workers entertain the kids during dinner for a bit of R and R. Owner Marcel was very welcoming and... More

My wife and I have just stayed at Aquana Beach Resort and could not have had a better holiday. We were concerned about going post Cyclone Pam but the resort is not only up and running it has taken the opportunity to carry out some excellent upgrades. They keep updating the resort so it does not become tired like some... More

We stayed at Aquana 6 weeks after cyclone Pam and had an amazing time. The resort is getting back on its feet very quickly and should be completely finished by the time you read this. We did have a run of bad weather that set in the day we arrived and didn't let up until the day we left, but... More

We enjoyed our trip to Vanuatu however wish we had booked somewhere that caters to couples rather than families. Aquana is clean, well presented, has lovely staff and nice food. The resort caters almost exclusively for young families, it does this well with nannies and baby sitters galore. If I had small kids, it would have been amazing. But I... More

It was perfect because the staff were amazing. The nannies are truly wonderful. The rooms are spacious and clean and everything said about the food is correct. We did lots of canoeing and exploring and when we come back we'll get out and about a bit more. We'll be back x

I recently stayed at Aquana Beach Resort in cabin number 2. What a wonderful and memorable place, even after Cyclone Pam had ravished the country. I was amazed that all the cabins remained standing following the monster storm. The owners and staff remained keen to ensure the best service, even though they had sustained damage to other areas of the... More
