The rooms are great and the food is amazing (best we had in Vanuatu). The staff were really helpful too, nothing was too much trouble. The views are stunning and we had such an enjoyable time just kayaking around or playing on the beach. We never thought our 2.5 year old would separate himself from us for a moment but...

Having visiting the pacific islands a number of times before having children, our best experiences where always at the smaller, low key resorts (vs large hotel chains). This was primarily because you are able to get to know the staff, owners and other guests and genuinely experience the pacific's number 1 attraction - the friendliness and hospitality of the local...

Dear lord. What an amazing seafood selection. It costs $12,500 Vatu ($160NZD roughly) but it's a real treat. We contemplated it for a few nights & finally did it. No regrets. Oysters, scallops (huge!), prawns, lobster, calamari, salmon, fish salad & fresh crumbed fish. It was huge and we struggled to eat it all. But we did. So good. Absolutely...

My children and I were all welcomed back with hugs and welcoming smiles. I was very impressed to see Valerie in charge of the Nannies. Definately a great decision...

My short and quick answer: These guys punch above their weight. A little quaint resort with a king hit success for service and attention to detail.

We had a most relaxing and fascinating holiday at this resort - Bea, Marcel and Hugo could not have been more hospitable. A good combination of being pampered with experiencing the local culture.

If you have small children, you are not going to regret coming to Aquana. I didn't think it was possible to have a really relaxing holiday where we got to do what we wanted too since we have a 4 and 1 year old. But we did! There are so many lovely nannies who just come and whisk your children...

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
