I hate to agree with the rest of the negative reviewers but unfortunately I have no choice. The 'beach-side villas' were a fair way back from the beach, tiny, dirty and with horrible gaudy bed linen (think hot pink frangipani doona, non matching towels that we were asked to reuse for our duration, and flower bath mats one would find...

Thoroughly enjoyed my five nights on Bokissa. The food is fabulous, the setting idyllic and the owners and staff are warm and friendly. My beachfront fare was very comfortable and it was such a treat to drift off to sleep every night to the sounds of the sea. The diving is great with beautiful reefs just off shore, as well... More

We had a magical stay at Bokissa and were so sad to leave. The rooms were clean, fresh and comfortable, and the island was beautiful. It was a few steps from our room to the white sandy beach and crystal clear blue water. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the owners endeavoured to make sure that your every... More

We stayed at Bokissa Island for 6 nights in Feb 2010. He had just come from 6 nights at Eratap Resort in Port Vila/Efate (which cannot be praised enough). As the title suggests, your expectations will either make or break your experience. Unfortunately we had just come from another "5 star" rated resort in Vanuatu of identical price so our... More

My new husband and I stayed at Bokissa for two nights after spending a week at Aore. Waiting in the restaurant/lobby area in Aore, we couldn't have been happier to see the boat that would take us to Bokissa. Bokissa feels a lot more exclusive than Aore. From memory, there were about 5 other couples staying on the island at... More

We stayed at Bokissa after researching all of the resorts in Santo. First off, the resort is not your typical 5 star...in Vanuatu I find it hard to believe that anyone could live up to a 5 star rating as things so often go wrong. However we are pretty relaxed and this did not bother us. If you are the... More

Bokissa Island. What an amazing place. 25 of us went to Bokissa for a week to celebrate my 50th birthday in September 2009. I will remember this trip for the rest of my life. The scuba diving, snorkeling, game fishing and just laying in the sun. Two of us were already qualified divers. Three more have gone on to become... More

We spent a very happy and relaxing week at Bokissa. I loved the beach, the clear waters and the fantastic snorkelling. The pool looked very nice too but with the sea right infront of our fare, I choose to swim and snorkel right there. Loved the super-sized hammocks everywhere and spent a few hours lazing in one with a good... More
