I echo everything that Ally C said - Hi Ally – I think we’re the friends you’re talking about! :) From the moment we were dropped off at the front of the resort, we knew this wasn’t going to be your average holiday. We were immediately greeted by 5 or 6 Aquana staff, who handed my wife & I a... More

The staff and owners at Aquana are out of control divine. From the warm and beautiful nannies, to the fun and helpful bar and restaurant staff, to the wonderful reception staff and delightful owners, there is not one single thing we can not recommend about this place.

I visited Aquana Beach Resort with my family from Australia and was overawed with the place. Its only a small resort but has everything you could wish for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. The bungalows are well situated, some with a sea view and very comfortable. There is a restaurant on site which offers a varied menu but if you fancy... More

What a beautiful place. As a tour operator in Vanuatu we are always looking for new venues to share with our tour groups. Aquana Beach Resort is one of those places we would love to share with our tour groups. It offers everything that one needs for a fantastic day out. Blue water, white sandy beaches, beautiful gardens, awesome food... More

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

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
