We visited Aore Island to dive on SS President Coolidge, a 200 metre luxury liner turned troop carrier that sank after hitting friendly mines in 1942 with 5,000 troops on board. We were diving with Aore Adventure Sports and Lodge which is adjacent to Aore Island Resort. Some of our fellow divers stayed at the Resort and reported that the... More

We have only been to half a dozen resorts in the South Pacific, but this one is clearly the best. The garden is immaculate and so are the bungalows. The beach side setting is gorgeous. The staff are friendly and remember us from one time to the next. We have been there three times. The third time was our first... More

I have been here twice now, and will return with my teenage children. From the moment I arrived I was greeted with the most friendly staff. I could name them all, they made a special effort each time they saw us to use our names. The rooms were just amazing, they have covered everything, cleaned and serviced each day, the... More

The resort was relaxing and peaceful, across the channel from Luganville with a free ferry service four times each day. Staff were friendly and helpful, meals were delicious, rooms well equipped with comfortable chairs on the balcony overlooking the garden or water. Easy pick up by scuba boat to dive the President Coolidge wreck .Close to wrecks and reef for... More

Aore Island is just opposite Luganville which makes it a good base for all activities. The beach is very pretty with calm waters and good snorkelling. The bungalows are quite large, comfortable, a bit dated and right on the water. The food was okay but nothing much to speak of. There're nice walks on the island or you can take... More

The bungalows are so close to the water were there is excellent snorkeling. Anne the owner is very hospitable as are the staff. Meals are fantastic and the Santo beef the best organic meat one has ever tasted. Had a lovely relaxing massage with Marie and a lovely walk over other parts of the island. Highly recommend the resort for... More

This is going to be a really short review, I mostly wanted to add a few photos from our trip at the end of November 2013. It's a lovely resort, well spaced out along the beachfront (even the 'garden view' bungalows all face the sea). The staff are all really friendly and looked after us so well - and as... More

Aore Island Resort was possibly one of the best places we have stayed while on holiday! The staff we all very friendly and kind, the view was fantastic, our bungalow was perfect and my partner (a steak lover!) recons the steak in the restaurant was the best he has tried.
