Its location is perfect - close to Port Vila but at the same time in a very peaceful and beautiful place with some of Efate's best attractions like the Summit Gardens, Cascade Waterfalls and Tanna Coffee close by. The grounds look very pleasant and well groomed, and the bungalows are equipped to enjoy your holiday. But best thing about it... More

My family of 4 stayed at Island Magic for 7 days in October 2013. I have two teenaged boys one who has Autism and so this place was perfect for us. As it was quiet and had lots of space for us to move about. I agree with Countrykids70 as we where there the same time! Our favourite day trip... More

We have just returned from a 12 day stay in Vanuatu, and we were lucky to have spent 7 of them at this beautiful accommodation. The bungalows are spacious, clean and well appointed for travellers who like the convenience of being able to cater for themselves. We travelled with two children and they loved having their own bathroom, eating breakfast... More

This property was recommended by a friend and it certainly lived up to it's reputation! Peaceful setting with roomy bungalow accommodation was perfect for two couples or a family group. It is a bus ride to town which can take some time depending on traffic conditions and adds to the cost of the stay. However, we felt this minor difficulty... More

We did our homework and found it near to exactly as we wanted and expected. Lovely spot and very relaxing. Sat on the verandah had a wine or beer and looked out to the blue water.

I read all the reviews and chose Island Magic for a quiet get away for 2. All the reviews looked great and as it was first time in Vanuatu we researched quite well and thought this sounded wonderful.

A great shame Summer Suzie was disappointed with her stay at Island Magic Resort. We strive to present Island Magic exactly as it is on our website and also our wholesalers who all have direct links to our website. We make a point of explaining we are a fully self contained apartment resort and there is no restaurant on site.... More

We have just had a week at Island Magic and could not recommend it enough. The units are clean spacious,private and easily accommodated our booking for 2 couples. Having a bathroom for each room makes a big difference. It is easy to snorkel and relax there for the day or come back to some comfort after a day trip.Hot showers,... More
