Had an amazing week's stay at Aquana with my wife and 2 young boys. We really admire how the place has been put together by Marcel, Fabienne and their families. There is a nice intimate atmosphere - relaxed and fun but with care and attention to really try and make your holiday all it can be. The staff are genuinely... More

We stayed at Aquana in July 2014 for 10 nights, two adults with our two children – daughter aged 7 and son aged 5. This was our first trip overseas with the kids and we were hoping it would be a great holiday for them. We booked Aquana Resort purely on the previous reviews read hear on Trip Advisor. So... More

Aquana is superb! From the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and cared for. Nothing was too much trouble. The units are modern and spotlessly clean. All of the amenities are in great condition. Because this place is so small it has a lovely intimate feel about it. It may be a little way out of town, but after a... More

As a family of four (2 adults, 16 and 9 year old) we all had different ideas of what the holiday needs were. Bit everyone was happy- from suntanning to some adventure the resort organized everything for us and with enthusiasm and care. We will certainly be back again and recommend the beachfront apartments and the food- which was fantastic!!

Four members of our family have just spent 11 wonderful, relaxing days at Aquana, and we loved it so much we are already making plans to return next year. The resort is ideally located right next to the lagoon, surrounded by swaying palm trees and colourful tropical plants. You can happily while away your time swimming in the pool, or... More

We've spent the last 3 weeks on holidays in Fiji, Hawaii and Los Angeles and the kids are still asking when we're going back to Aquana!! Aquana has to be that perfect tropical getaway for families.....the kids were well looked after and I think spoilt rotten by the nannies the entire time and that gave us time to relax and... More

We spent 8 nights at the Aquana Beach Resort and loved every aspect. The location, the service, the bungalows, the food and the people (staff) - we couldn't have asked for anything more and highly recommend this place for young families. The adults are catered for and spoilt with room and pool service (if desired), happy hour, nanny service for... More

I recently spent 4 nights at Aquana with 3 other family members, sharing a two bedroom beachfront bureau.  The accommodation was fresh and clean with beautiful views of the water.  The staff were great.  The resort in itself was pleasant and peaceful, tailored for both couples and families alike. I had no trouble finding things to do with my 4... 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
