Spent a week here over New year with husband for 1 yr anniversary. Was worried at first due to being a family resort, but with free child care, this was not a problem for a couple. Free shuttle to town each day. Free snorkelling and kayaking gear and boat trip to deserted islands nearby. Amlost like we had the little... More

Aquana is hard to beat as a family resort and Vanuatu is a peaceful / beautiful place with friendly and happy people. The resort is designed to cater primarily for young families like mine, we have a 4 and 6 yr old. From the moment you arrive the nannies encourage the children to go with them for their own tour...

We loved our holiday at Aquana over Christmas. The staff were all so friendly, the nannies very attentive to the kids, the food was delicious and the lagoon setting was so relaxing. I enjoyed the extras like sending nannies with us on our trips to the local village & snorkelling. When we left we were in tears, hugging the staff,... More

This was our second visit to Aquana (first was Aug 2012) and it was great to see all the improvements they've made. So different from 3 years ago! The nannies were awesome and my son just loved playing in the pool with them and the table football. We had the same villa we had last time (no 5) which was... More

As a family of 4 plus our aupair girl travelling with us, we had our best stay at Aquana, with tears pouring from my 4 y.o. daughter when we had to leave. I had to promise her we would come back again! One of the few places in Vanuatu where kids are actually welcome! Staff is ready to help you... More

As a couple we had the most relaxing holiday we have had in a long time, Aquana is a family friendly resort and we didn't find the children too noisy, but there are plenty of little corners you can retire to. Beds were comfortable, bungalows are air conditioned and spacious. This resort is a little way out of town but... More

Our stay in Aquana made us feel like the happiest travellers in Vanuatu. We travelled there in a group of 9, celebrating my father's 60th birthday, and we have been spoiled by the warmth of the passionate family who run this resort! The owners have years of hospitality experiences in Switzerland, they are very thoughtful and precise in every details.... More

Great place if you have kids. It really helped having nannies on hand to relieve us from constantly having to look after the children. We could actually relax while on holiday!! Plenty of activities to keep you busy and entertainment every evening. Housekeeping was impeccable. The food was a particular highlight of the resort, well prepared and always fresh. We... More

When I wrote my 1st review of Aquana last year, I said that it might become a place that we would continue to come back to. Having now returned from our 2nd stay there, I'm pleased to say that this is still true. This time with a 2.5 year and 4 month old, we had a thoroughly relaxing 2 week... More

This is a great resort for families. From the moment we arrived, Fabienne and her wonderful staff were on-hand all day, to help with advice on tours, take our drink & food orders (I agree with Sarah about the Mojitos!), and, most importantly, to keep the kids entertained. The lovely nannies are there, day and night, to watch over the... More
