We so enjoyed our 6 day stay at this resort. It is a short distance from the airport to the wharf where the ferry whisks you across the ocean to Aore Island in 15 minutes. Once there it is relaxation all the way. We were there out of season & so shared the resort with only 4 other couples. Such...

We came back to Aore Island Resort, for the second time, for 6 heavenly nights. The first time was just the two of us. This time we took our son who was about to turn 18, and he had just graduated from high school. He didn't care about going to schoolies, so we thought this would be a great alternative....

My husband and I were warmly greeted from airport, to wharf, to aore island by drumming and Anne on the pier. We spent 7 wonderful nights here, and we enjoyed every single one of them. The bungalows are comfortable and perfect for relaxing and winding down after a day of exploring. The rooms are appropriate size, the fridge is adequate...

We took the resort ferry over to the island for some snorkelling, lunch and a short hike. Staff were very helpful and snorkel gear, towels and return transfer were provided free of charge as we had eaten in the resort. Looked a very pleasant spot to stay.

Yesterday I had the best full body massage ever at the resort. Doloros really knows how to make you relax! You can choose between several options. I choose the relaxing massage and it was very good. Love to go again before I go back to Havannah Harbour. We didn't stay at the resort, but have done several times before. We...

Aore Island is beautiful! We were lucky enough to stay for three nights, and were sad to say goodbye at the end. Do contact Anne to ask what time the ferry actually leaves, as we missed a whole first morning on the island because we were told that the only options were 7.30am or 11.30am. But everything was ok when...

We stayed here for eight nights, Ann and her staff are wonderful! Very accommodating and friendly. Every meal was beautiful and reasonably priced. The accommodation was comfortable and roomy and the massages are amazing! The snorkelling at the front of the resort is breathtaking, there are hundreds of fish swimming around the coral, they will often swim very close to...

Beautiful place, friendly people, spotlessly kept, great food, step off your balcony into warm water full of tropical fish! Very quiet, peaceful and relaxing yet a short ferry ride to the attractions of mainland Santo...Champagne Beach, blue holes and waterfalls.
