Third year in a row we've stayed at Aquana and we'll be back again next year. Not only are the staff fantastic but every year we and our kids make new friends there. It's a special place and perfect for a relaxing family holiday. If you've got young kids, do yourself a favour and book.

Hard to fault, food is fantastic, free kayak & stand up paddle boarding, WIFI and the best part, the nannies! If you have children you can't beat Aquana Beach Resort, a must for any family. This was our 2nd visit and we're already planning our 3rd.

We visited as a family with two young children and loved Aquana Beach Resort. Valerie and her team of nannies are a credit to the resort and made our stay comfortable, fun and engaging for the kids. The staff were all friendly and efficient, the food was glorious and the standard of accommodation was fabulous. The fire show on the... More

We returned to Aquana this year because we loved it so much the first time. All the great comments in other reviews are true - the resort, the nannies and the staff are absolutely wonderful - the remember this is a small island with limited resources - no local dairy products etc - how they manage to produce such great...

We've just come back from an excellent week in Vanuatu with our extended family staying at Aquana. We were in a very large group with kids from 4 months through to adults (oldest 70 years). They trip was amazing; and Aquana was a huge part of that. Perhaps the thing that was most immediately evident was the care we received... More

We started as 2 families booking which then grew to another 2 families joining. There were 17 of us in total aged from 72 years old to 11 months. The kids aged 4-11 loved it so... More

Aquana Beautiful tropical surroundings. About 30 min out of Vila. Facing a lagoon and 200 odd metres across the lagoon is a deserted island. The resort has a pool ( I guess about 6*15 m) hanging chairs, pool lounges , trampolines, volley ball court, dedicated kids area & the obligatory bar. There is access from the resort to swim in...

We were looking for somewhere that we could visit and have a lovely holiday with our very busy 1 and 3 year old girls. Aquana really delivered. It's in a beautiful and quiet setting, right on the lagoon waterfront, with golden sands and so much to do. A real highlight was the entertainment for the kids, Valerie and the nanny... More

We booked Aquana based on the reviews we read on TripAdvisor so here are my thoughts. We were travelling with our 2 year old daughter. We booked a transfer through Aquana for 5000 Vatu and the transport was arranged though a third party company. They were waiting for us at the airport on arrival with a sign. The trip to... More

A little off the beaten track, a pretty rough dirt road into the resort but it's quaint & peaceful. It's built on reclaimed mangroves so the water clarity isn't the best. Plenty of free kayaks, canoes & paddle boards to use. The pool isn't huge but with so few guests it doesn't really matter. The games room & trampolines will... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Opened in 2012, Aquana Beach Resort has become Vanuatu's leading three and a half star family friendly boutique Resort and this has largely been due to the unique childcare approach it has developed and the quality of the food from it's very popular casual dining restaurant. Located 25 minutes from the International Airport and only 15 minutes from the town centre, Aquana is situated in a large lagoon surrounded by groups of deserted islands and pristine reefs. Aquana has a 150 meter long man-made beach great for children to be able to play free from danger and for adults to relax on and soak up the sun. Aquana consists of 16 bungalows all located within 30 meters of the lagoon front and a hot a la carte and a continental breakfast are both included in the room rate and the resorts idyllic surroundings provides the perfect location for weddings and functions. ... more   less
