Aore Island Resort - still fabulous

This was our second stay at Aore Island Resort and everything was as good as last time. The new owners Lisa & Brad are doing a fantastic job. The food is still great and the atmosphere is excellent.

Hidden Paradise

Resort allowed you to do as much or as little as you liked. We loved the ability to snorkel just outside of our accomodation. Local tour by Michele was remarkable. All tours organised by staff at resort were fantastic with just two of you on tour allowed for that personal touch. Room was cosy and staff always had a smile and time to talk. This place was great for relaxing and letting your hair down.

Wonderful team and perfect location

The team work so well and are so friendly. Our toddler was looked after by all the staff, and we had a perfect family holiday. The snorkelling just off the beach is amazing and the amount of activities and sites available is great. We'll be back.
