It was some months ago my husband and I stayed here (August 2016). With a desperate need for a break we booked this and had no idea what to expect. From the moment we were collected at the airport we found ourselves with 'Bokissa Royalty' ;) and our journey began. What a treat to stay at this most magical island...

We just returned from 2 weeks at Bokissa including Xmas and New Year. we had a great time with the staff, owners, managers and locals. so much to do, or not to do depending on what you are looking for. Turtles, Dugong, fish, crabs, and all of the usual attractions of a fantastic island.

We had a fantastic time at Bokissa Island Resort in August 2016. We had just married in Port Vila and when we told them that, they upgraded us for free and we stayed in the extra large and right over the waterfront Deluxe spa fare. Brilliant! The snorkelling was my favourite. So easy to access, straight off the beach, and...

Myself, husband and 16 year old daughter stayed here at the end of November and had the most amazing time. First I would like to thank Pete and JoJo, the managers, for making our time there stress free and relaxing. They couldn't do enough for us and we wanted for nothing. The staff there are also fantastic and a big...

My better half and I recently got married (renewed our vowels after a brief legal ceremony before arrival) on Bokissa. With a small group of family and friends, we were treated more than guests, but family. Jo and Pete have recently taken on the managing gig on the resort, and we had the pleasure of being their little bunny, their...

I confirm what previous reviewers have said. Bungalows are not luxury standard but have all the necessary contents and are well serviced. But we were happy with the accommodation which was separate and beachside. The food was very good. Breakfast was basic continental with full cooked an optional extra. Lunch and dinner were a choice of two items selected each...
