Come and dive on Santo's premier dive boat and if you are looking for a great place to stay Espiritu Santo's newest private beach house is waiting for you.Situated on your own 200m white sandy beach in a self contained contemporary villa on Aore Island , just a short 10min boat ride from Luganville.We are a PADI dive resort and run our new dive vessel from right out front, diving the world famous SS President Coolidge and all the other local reef sites and wrecks. We also dive sites that no other operator can due to our boat capabilities. The villa sleeps 6 adults in comfort and has a fully self contained kitchen and bar b q area and there is one of the top local restaurants and bar less than 5 mins walk away.For non divers there is plenty to do with tours to caves, pristine spring fed blue holes, great beaches, jungle treks plus many other activities, or just lay around and enjoy your own private beach.Snorkel right out the front or enjoy a paddle over the reef with our complementary kayaks.

Absolute best holiday we had in a very long time. Perfect location, beautiful snorkelling right in front of the villa. Excellent dive sites and great service from Paul and the crew. We will be back for sure.
