We've recently returned from our second trip to Aquana and it just keeps getting better and better. The staff are incredible, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make your trip as enjoyable as possible and you couldn't ask for a better team of nannies to look after your children. The food is delicious...

Had a superb lunch here with local friends early September - beautiful setting and great effort to get this resort to where it is at. The risotto was the best I have had for a long time and the service with a smile just topped it off.

We first visited Aquanas in November 2012 and loved it! We returned in September 2014 with friends and had an amazing stay! Staff welcomed (& remembered us). We felt at home the moment we arrived, as did our friends. It was great to see all the improvements made to an already awesome resort. Would I return .. in a heartbeat!...

We (me, my husband and our 2 girls aged 3 and 6) stayed at Aquana resort for 2 weeks in June / July and had a fantastic time. It's the first time we've stayed at a smaller resort, generally favouring the larger, international groups but Aquana was such a refreshing, eye opening change! There were fewer rules and regulations and...

This place is simply amazing! There is something magic going on here. Perhaps a combination of the amazing staff who make you feel at home, the nannies who truly love being with your kids, the delicious food and cocktails and the wonderful little islands just a short boat ride away. We stayed for 8 night with our 5 and 2...

Very relaxed holiday. Nice to have extra help with the kids with nannies but they need more structure or organized activities to keep the childrens' interest. Food was very good. Setting was ideal for young kids, calm water, but pool too cold. Great to have use of kayaks and snorkeling nearby. Enjoyed village walk. Staff very friendly and helpful. Thank...

Aquana is possibly the best resort I have ever stayed in for families. Not only does it have individual bungalows with two separate bedrooms, but it has a fabulous unique integrated nanny care model which is far superior to any other I have seen. As the resort is small, whenever the children wander more than a few metres away from...

We stayed at Aquana for a week and it was just beautiful. The amenities are clean and spacious with beautiful toiletry products. The owner/managers are extremely friendly and accommodating and the nannies are just awesome. We took our 13yo and he had a blast with the girls taking him out to do various activities everyday including canoeing, beach volleyball and...

We loved our stay at Aquana. We are 2 adults and 2 kids - 10 & 7. It is a small resort, with a great community feel and you can mingle with other guests as much or as little as you like. We ate at the resort every night, and many lunches, and loved all of the meals. The food...

We first stayed at Aquana in 2012 and had a fantastic time. Having now been to Raro, Fiji and Samoa, we decided to go back in July this year and were so pleased to have another great holiday.
