Lovely lunch and a swim in clear waters with thousands of fish - really beautiful. We were staying elsewhere but wished we had stayed here as well. Easy trip from main land town. Would have liked more time to explore.

From being met on the boat until we said goodbye we could not fault the staff or the experience on the island. What a beautiful place to relax or be as busy as you want. With only a small boat ride accross to the main land all the tourist attractions are close at hand. The meals were all beautiful and...

My daughter and I had a fabulous time doing a resort dive with Aore Resort. Paul was very helpful in the weeks leading up to the dive with lots of emails to and fro. The teaching session before the dive was thorough and the dive a great experience.

Our 3 week holiday at Aore Island Resort was wonderful and exceeded all expectations. We were a family of three adults and have been to Norfolk Island, Lord Howe, Fiji, Rarotonga and Aitutaki. Aore Island has very good snorkeling off the beach. There is scuba training and diving (Coolidge) with Aore Adventure Sports close by. Luganville , a 10 minute...

Unwelcoming staff and policies if you are there for the day & lunch only. There is a very limited area you can stay at and items you can use, even if you are willing to pay to hire some, they are available only for guests. Not very bright, guys. Shame. Snorkeling is very average in that area also.

This wonderful boutique resort is located across the channel from Luganville town. There are 18 bungalows set in beautifully maintained gardens along a small beach. The water is clean and crystal clear and great for swimming or snorkeling. The bungalows are comfortable and serviced each day. They feature a private bathroom, hot shower, small refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities...

Stayed several days at Aore Island Resort during August with a group of people on a work party to one of the villages in East Santo. We were collected from the airport, taken to the ferry and transported to Aore with a minimum of fuss. Warmly greeted on arrival by Anne and her excellent ni-Vanuatu team. Plenty of activities if...

We stayed at Aore Island Resort for one week in August 2015. It was our favourite place to stay during our whole time in Vanuatu. We were warmly welcomed by our host Anne on the pier, followed by more welcoming introductions by the staff. The customer service we experienced at this resort was faultless. Every person went that extra mile...

We couldn't fault anything about this resort, from Annes greeting off the boat on arrival to her presence when we were leaving, she does a wonderful job and has the staff all working extremely well. The coral out front is not wonderful but the fish life is pretty awesome just watch for the territorial clown fish as have real attitude...
