We wanted to thank Aquana for the wonderful hospitality and service we received for our week's stay recently. With a 4yo running riot and 1yo birthday to celebrate, they were very accommodating and no request was too small. All the staff are friendly, helpful and thoughtful, the roving nanny service is a godsend, and the tranquil setting offers the perfect... More

Best relaxing family holiday we have ever had. Awesome nannies, fantastic staff, wonderful food, beautiful location, great two bedroom bungalow. Really can't recommend Aquana strongly enough to anyone with young kids wanting to have time to recharge.

The reviews for Aquana are almost too good to be true so we checked it out. The result was a fabulous holiday in a natural paradise. The personal service from the owners and right through the staff is exemplary. The smaller size of the resort (16? bungalows) means that you are moments walk from the restaurant, the pool and the...

I have just read JummaBee's review and can only echo the comments and the sentiment. This was our third trip to Vanuatu and second stay at Aquana. The improvements we noticed were the day spa, the island dock, path and beach access which was only a short kayak away, the new dining room by the beach and the trampolines (only... More

What a great place to go as a family. The nannies are wonderful and the food is interesting and great for the kids. The only things I recommend it that you take the swimmers ear stuff to help prevent it. The hotel owners went out of their way to make our stay pleasant and special.

This being was our second stay at Aquana Beach Resort, the first some three years prior, so we anticipated the same high standards of hospitality, relaxation and comfort, particularly as this is a family run operation. However we did not anticipate the extent of improvements that have been achieved, especially significant given the impacts of Cyclone Pam that devastated the... More

Aquanau is the perfect resort for families! The rooms are well equipped and the location on the lagoon is gorgeous but it is the staff that make the place. Everyone from the front desk staff to Gilbert who organizes the snorkeling are excellent, professional but friendly and happy to help. But it really is the nannies that make the experience.... More

Great place to stay in Vanuatu with kids. In fact having kids is the main reason to stay. Aquana is a small, family run resort - not a megabucks international chain. If you are looking for a 5 star resort like in Thailand/ Singapore then this is not for you. Vanuatu is not for you (the country is the exact... More

The surroundings are beautiful, staff are so friendly and they even have staff that can babysit your kids while you relax and enjoy your stay. Spent the day for a birthday party and couldn't have thought of a better place. The food was delicious, credit to the two locally trained chefs. Big thumbs UPP!!

I stayed in bungalow 8 for 2 nights while in town on a work trip. This is a beautifully run little resort and perfect for those looking to relax. The staff are very friendly and the owners pride themselves on looking after the employees, which is not always the case in the tourism industry. I love the fact that roving... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in 2012, Aquana Beach Resort has become Vanuatu's leading three and a half star family friendly boutique Resort and this has largely been due to the unique childcare approach it has developed and the quality of the food from it's very popular casual dining restaurant. Located 25 minutes from the International Airport and only 15 minutes from the town centre, Aquana is situated in a large lagoon surrounded by groups of deserted islands and pristine reefs. Aquana has a 150 meter long man-made beach great for children to be able to play free from danger and for adults to relax on and soak up the sun. Aquana consists of 16 bungalows all located within 30 meters of the lagoon front and a hot a la carte and a continental breakfast are both included in the room rate and the resorts idyllic surroundings provides the perfect location for weddings and functions. ... more   less
