We (2 adults, 2yr old & 4 yr old) for 7 nights in a 2 bedroom beachfront bungalow. It was such a relaxing break. Aquana is approx a 20 min drive from Port Vila. We arranged airport transfers through Melanesian Transfers & they were fantastic. This resort was more intimate and the nannies were all so kind & beautiful to our kids. It was great to be able to have dinner on the odd night alone knowing our kids weren’t far away in kids club. We did the Village Tour and saw where local nannies & staff lived, plus the school which was lovely. We took a private half day bus tour which we loved, to the Blue Lagoon (take floaties for the kids if needed), The Reef Zoological (kids were able to pat/hold turtles, starfish & iguanas as well as see flying foxes & coconut crabs) & the Rarru Waterfalls. We also explored Port Vila on the free shuttle bus into town. The food here was delicious with many options for kids and adults. We went swimming every day and just wished we stayed a few nights longer to go kayaking and explore the nearby island. We will definitely be back!!
Marcel and Co have created what has to be the most family friendly resort I have ever visited.
We absolutely loved our stay at Aquana!!! My 5 and 7 year old boys had a fantastic time - the nannies were amazing and the kids always had something to do or someone to play with. I celebrated my 40th birthday while we were there and the resort staff all wished my happy birthday and made my day very special. I highly recommend this resort to anyone with kids - my husband and I came home so relaxed!!!
the girls really made me comfortable and it was beautiful resort very nice owners were nice to just a bit out of town but fine with bus shuttle
Nothing was a problem for the staff of the resort to offer great service.
Lived up to all our expectations, a wonderful holiday.
We had such an experience here, beautiful place to finish off our holiday in Vanuatu. Huge recommendation for families especially with little ones, this is the perfect place. We will definitely stay here again! Might be a bit pricy but it's worth it!
The fact that you can stay somewhere for a week with 1 and 4 year olds and come away feeling relaxed, and when you leave a whole bunch of people come out to wave you goodbye, including the owner, and you all get teary, tells you a lot about Aquana. I would reccomend it to anyone with kids if you want to have a super relaxing holiday with amazing food where people keep taking your kids away, and the kids love it too.
Service, location, food could not get any better. My family and I will be definite return to this resort .Absolute Paradise!!
If you have children this is a great place for them and you to get a break . There approach to kids / kids club is fantastic just loved it. The nannies were amazing.
What a great spot for couples and families alike. Whilst we don't have children we admired the attentiveness of the 'nannies' and their complete dedication to the children of all ages. The staff were extremely friendly and couldn't do enough to make our holiday the relaxing time we needed.
With two young children (3 and 10), finding the right place to stay on holiday isn't easy. Aquana is the solution. A bit out of town (but that's not a negative), quiet, friendly, great food and the most wonderful staff. Where else can you go where the nannies are there from dawn to dusk (actually, later than that) ready to play with your kids for as short or long a time as you want. Great entertainment on some nights, kayaks, trampoline, buffet and cooked breakfasts...all included! Would definitely recommend for couples with young kids as a place to chill and enjoy.
Friendly Staff and Owners, can't wait to go back!
Service was excellent and staff were always at hand to answer questions
We stayed here in Jan 2013 and cannot rave enough. Service is brilliant, cleanliness is awesome! Food and entertainment was wonderful! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! We came home feeling completely relaxed! We will be back! You ccan book this place knowing you are getting value for money! The best part is that it is not in town! This is a great thing and there are villages all around you, go for a walk up the rd and you will be welcomes by the locals!
We chose this resort based on recommendations from other families with young children and it was perfect. The resort is beautifully maintained and really family focused - great for our 3 year old. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The nannies are on hand to entertain the kids so parents can relax by the pool. Marcel and the team in the kitchen produced consistently delicious food and were happy to cater to special requests from children. Highly recommended!
Just wished it was a little closer to town. Recommend getting a hire,car if you're going to stay more than a few days.
