The resort is beautifully located right on the beach. Pristine coral and marine life at your back door.Bungalows are spacious and very well appointed. A delightful place to stay and only 15 minutes from Vila.

Having just had my forth stay at Island Magic Resort I can say without reservation that the experience is simply the best .The icing on the cake for me is the excellent and personal attention given by the managers coupled with being allowed to use your room
until your departure to the airport .

My partner and I stayed at the Island Magic resort and found the managers Jane and David to be warm and friendly. They provided excellent local advice and assisted us to make our stay very relaxing and enjoyable. I would without reservation recommend this resort to anyone looking for excellent self contained accommodation. The unit we stayed in was well provisioned with all cuttlery ect and little touches like glad wrap and salt and pepper shakers. The ice cube trays in the freezer were full. The ground staff were friendly and always willing to assist if asked. This resort is a short drive from the centre of Port Villa and well worth the small fee to be driven 10 minutes into town. A great place on the edge of the Pacific Ocean to stay.

If you're looking for some simple R&R, this is the place to be.

We spent 9 absolutely incredible days over the Christmas/New Year Period at IMR with my Fiance's family.

Our 2bdrm self containted (both with ensuite) oceanview bungalow provided ample space for two couples to live in. Bungalow includes:
- open kitchen/living/dining area
- laundry facilities
- spacious ensuite (large shower)
- great deck with ample seating space

Attention to detail was astonishing, they even provided Golf Umbrellas!

The Resort includes a jetty & deck off the front of the resort. Jetty is best for snorkelling and feeding the fish. Its amazing to see all the fish come up for a feed. The deck area includes meal tables (enough for 3 families) and a BBQ.

There is also a BBQ Hut and pool area. BBQ are is fantastic for getting together with family. All BBQ utensils are provided. We spent most of our time in this area for happy hour and cooking dinner. It also gave us a chance to get to know some of the holiday makers in the other bungalows.

All staff are exceptionally friendly. Groundsmen (Joe & Pako) are always smiling and greeting you and Managers, Jane & Dave are always happy to help with tour information.

Overall this was truly an exceptional place, it may be abit further into town than other resorts, but would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone.

Places of interest:
- Buggy tour with Buggy Fun Rental
- Tamanu Restaurant - fantastic food with great views of beach (about 45mins drive from IMR)
- AnchorInn (in town) for a good pub lunch/drink - best place to go to view Aussie Cricket/Footy
- Au Bon Mache (Numbatu) all your grocery needs in one place!

Island Magic Resort is outstanding.

If you wish to stay in a large brand name luxury resort with a range of magificent pools, restaurants, facilities (and expenses) attached to a lovely beach/lagoon/river, that when you look around from your deck chair past all the other guests could really be any where in the world, then Island majic Resort is not for you.

Island Magic Resort has 15 fully self contained bungalows at exceptional value. The bungalows are not luxurious but they are perfect. All are fully appointed for self catering. All have views ample living area and a spacious deck. Exceptionally each bedroom has its own ensuit. No fighting with the children or dancing for a shower/toilet if sharing with another couple.

Island Magic Resort is not located in town (so you will need to arrangr public transport to and from or hire a car. This is the only minor negative for IMR. Travel time less than 10 minutes). Island Magic Resort is not located in town or on the Lagoon so no noise, no hustle and bustle and a constant cool breeze which strips the humidity away. Nestled between ocean and Jungle back drop you always know that you are in Vanuatu. IMR is also near the crystal falls, horse riding, hideaway island and kayak rental/zorbing so is centrally located for exploring Port Villa attractions.

A small pool, clean grounds of grass and gardens, decking over the ocean, hammocks, a fresh water garden shower,great management staff are many of the other positives but if you need only one resaon to stay at Island Magic Resort it is the pristine coral reef at the end of the jetty.

We spent hours every day snorkelling. The coral reef is teaming with hundreds of fish variety and is composed of hard, soft, plate, staghorn, brain etc coral. Truely magic.

Great 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom "bungalows", plenty of room, very clean & everything you need. Good snorkelling reef off the jetty. Not too far out of town, but far enough to feel like your the only ones on the island. Helpful staff who can organise trips, and buses into town etc. Great relaxing holiday.
