The 2 bed bungalow we stayed in was lovely, very well maintained with a full size kitchen, 2 great bedrooms with ensuites and a lovely lounge area. The resort has a great restaurant, nice pool and a beautiful deck from which there was some good snorkelling.... More

The accommodation is nice and spacious. We cooked dinner a couple of times and found it contained everything we needed. Feeding the fish at the jetty is fun and snorkelling off the jetty is as good as at Hideaway Island. Although out of town it is close to several attractions eg The Summit, Tanna Coffee, The Beach Bar and its... More

Upon arrival Jerry and staff made us feel straight at home. The bungalow "room 10" was in the prime location with a 10 step walk to the restaurant and directly in front of the pier. And in my opinion the best view of the bay and resort. The staff were more than helpful from taking care of the bungalow to... More

Magic resort magic people! Very peaceful and private, Away from the hustle and bustle of Port Vila but close enough if you want to go there. Tropical garden is a treat and lovely big trees offer shade and listening to the breeze through them is very relaxing, Great place to spend quality time with friends and family.

We enjoyed our time at Island Magic recently. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, the food is absolutely delicious and the bungalows just gorgeous. Your own private beach and jetty has the most spectacular snorkelling with crystal blue water and colourful fish and coral everywhere you look. My kids loved the pool and volleyball and the staff even joined... More

Fantastic week here. Bungalow and facilitys first class.manager and staff do everything to make this a great week.Visitor numbers are way down because of airlines not flying in.I think this is political, no problems with runway.The restaurant meals are great.Only 2.5 hours from Brisbane.

Our group of family and friends had a wonderful stay at Island Magic in Dec. It ticked all the boxes for us: clean comfortable accommodation, quiet beach front location, snorkeling out front, pool, and choice of self-catering or eating at onsite restaurant. The bungalows are spacious and well appointed, with good sized covered verandahs. The bungalows are spread out over... More
