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

My husband and I (no little kids anymore :) ) stayed there at the end of October last year. It was a great experience. Though definitely kids oriented, the resort provides wonderful opportunities to relax and explore the area. The bungalows are private, quiet and very clean, and the lounge room is airconditioned. The bedrooms are equipped with powerful yet... More

My husband, daughter and I had the best 2 week holiday ever at Aquana in January. All of the staff were wonderful, the food amazing and our bungalow excellent. We could either have a lazy day at the resort or go out and explore the beautiful country of Vanuatu, all of our requests were answered promptly and nothing was too... More

Aquana Beach Resort was the ideal location for our family holiday with 2 teenage kids. The accommodation cabins were neat and tidy, air conditioned and serviced everyday. The staff were excellent and nothing was a problem for them especially Rose in reception. We spent 14 days at the resort over the christmas period and it was relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable....

I had a great week here in rather ordinary weather. The food is amazing and quite reasonably priced. The only thing is that it's all cooked in coconut oil which is a little overpowering at first. The owners and staff are really nice and looked after every request. The bungalows are well appointed and have excellent airconditioning. For families there... More

We had such a great time, we didn't want to leave! Location is beautiful and quiet with plenty of nature to explore. Kayaking and snorkelling are great and there's heaps to explore. Staff are so welcoming and happy to assist with anything. My three children wandered off happily with the lovely nannies and they had a ball hanging out with... More

The Positives: So many - quiet, remote location - great for chilling out like we did for 10 nights in Jan. 2015. A small resort, I think with 14 apartments (some used by staff/owners) Bungalow was ok - basic, but had everything required. Perhaps some wine glasses and a safe would be good (but use of main safe was possible)... More
