Anne and the team at Aore Island Resort make you feel welcome the moment you step ashore. All the staff are friendly, introduce themselves and somehow remember each guest's name to ensure service is as personal as possible.
We stayed for six nights as part of our nine night honeymoon in a beachfront bure. The team had thought of everything - including sarongs to use during your stay and an umbrella if necessary (thankfully we didn't need it).
You can snorkel straight out in front of the resort and it is probably the best snorkeling I've experienced in any of the Pacific Islands. The fish life is abundant and there is a fair amount of coral to look at too. Despite the great snorkeling, the beach is fairly sandy and you can easily swim without needing protective footwear.
Dining at Aore was good - the Santo Beef and Pork Loin were up there with the best I've had anywhere. The fish was quite over cooked but we gave them our feedback at the time and this is something the new manager, Rex is focussing on.
I would highly recommend the plantation tour - Manson gave us a fantastic insight into local flora and fauna, as well as WWII bunkers etc, and even gave as coca and wild oranges to try on the way around.
Awesome. I just wish we didn't have to leave...
