We recently stayed at Aquana Resort (Nov 2014) with our 2 children (9 and 6). This is a slice of heaven on earth. Right from our arrival we felt at home, we were greeted by the nannies and given a tour by the owners, the kids were off playing within 3mins of arriving. What sets Aquana from the others is...

This was a wonderful resort! The nanny system is a wonderful balance of quality time with your kids with lots of breaks throughout the day. Thank you to Valerie and Christina who spent countless occasions with my 2 toddlers. The food was excellent, we only ate elsewhere twice, and regretted it both times!! The bungalows are big, tidy, new, private... More

The rooms are great and the food is amazing (best we had in Vanuatu). The staff were really helpful too, nothing was too much trouble. The views are stunning and we had such an enjoyable time just kayaking around or playing on the beach. We never thought our 2.5 year old would separate himself from us for a moment but... More

We can not speak highly enough about our stay at Aquana Beach Resort.The staff will bend over backwards to help you in any way they can.We approached them many times to organise last minute island tours, volcano tours and shopping trips and we were accommodated every time. Valerie and her wonderful group of nannies made our daughter's and our stay... More

Having visiting the pacific islands a number of times before having children, our best experiences where always at the smaller, low key resorts (vs large hotel chains). This was primarily because you are able to get to know the staff, owners and other guests and genuinely experience the pacific's number 1 attraction - the friendliness and hospitality of the local...

Dear lord. What an amazing seafood selection. It costs $12,500 Vatu ($160NZD roughly) but it's a real treat. We contemplated it for a few nights & finally did it. No regrets. Oysters, scallops (huge!), prawns, lobster, calamari, salmon, fish salad & fresh crumbed fish. It was huge and we struggled to eat it all. But we did. So good. Absolutely... More

I wrote a review this time last year and I have to say in a year this place just keeps getting better and better. It felt like I was returning home. My children and I were all welcomed back with hugs and welcoming smiles. I was very impressed to see Valerie in charge of the Nannies. Definately a great decision... More

My short and quick answer: These guys punch above their weight. A little quaint resort with a king hit success for service and attention to detail. They truly go out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant and without stress or frustration. This is a quality very rare in other resorts. This is a great resort for... More

What we want to share with you as our most important memories: 1. Outstanding venue for Families, you feel welcome and at home 2. Marcel the Magnificent is probably best chef on the island, fabulous food 3. Point of Difference with Aquana is their 'can do' attitude and customer service 4. Nannies headed up by Valerie are the 'key to... More

We had a most relaxing and fascinating holiday at this resort - Bea, Marcel and Hugo could not have been more hospitable. A good combination of being pampered with experiencing the local culture. The food was consistently excellent - the quality was fantastic, the menu was interesting and the service was outstanding. The resort owners have a fantastic relationship with... More
