This year we travelled with family so had 6 adults and 8 kids under 8. We chose Vanuatu because of flight time and ease with the troops. We have travelled multiple times before to Fiji, Bali and Hawaii. Aquana was recommended by our travel agent. On arriving, late we were amazed by the natural stunning beauty of the resort, it's...

Our family of 4 (older kids aged 8 and 14) recently spent 7 nights in a 2 bedroom beachview unit at the wonderful Aquana Resort. We were met at the airport and a relaxed driver waited while we tracked down our lost suitcase, then transported us while also offering us welcoming information along the way. On our arrival to Aquana... More

We stayed in Bungalow 8 for 4 nights and it was amazing. We had previously stayed closer to town and done our sightseeing and tours so we got to enjoy the quiet resort and had all meals on site. *Tip: order dinner mid afternoon and state the time you would like it to be served for instant service when kiddo's...

We absolutely loved Aquana and cannot recommend it highly enough for families. My husband, kids (6 and 8) and I stayed in bungalow 7 on the lagoon for five nights. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped with a small fridge, air con and ceiling fans. The tv and DVD player were perfect for a rainy day. What an excellent... More

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
