This resort is located out of town which is perfect for a relaxing holiday. Jane and David make you feel very welcome and are able to put you in touch with local guides who can assist with transport if you require. The accomodation is neat and tidy and accomodates for a self-contained holiday. Benjor Beach club is walking distance if...

Stayed a week in a two bedroom self contained unit with friends in September 2012. Each room had its own ensuite. The units were immaculate with everything one could need and David was super helpful. The resort itself was so quiet we had the small pool and amazing barbecue area to ourselves most of the time. Highly recommended if you...

Stayed 5 nights at Island Magic, and no negatives come to mind. Great bungalows, great views and great service. Jane and David are super helpful in organising tours and transport for you, and even gave us a lift on a few occasions! Bungalows are private and the resort's distance to Port Villa means that everything is really peaceful and laid...

We arrived in Port Vila late at night a couple of days before Xmas - Jane and David organised all of our transfers and made sure we had a tropical breakfast waiting for us and our 4 year old. They could not have been more accommodating - sorting out bus rides and transport, booking us in for Xmas lunch and...

We (my wife & I sans kids!) are just back from our second visit to Vanuatu and Island Magic. First time in March this year and both times as part of a conference group. Another fantastic stay. The previous reviews really nail all the details. No exagerations there. This really is a piece of paradise in the paradise that Vanuatu...

It was perfect. The weather was pretty good. The accommodation just right. Two big bedrooms self contained eat in or go out. Great BBQ facilities. Spotlessly clean. What a relaxing time. Great for families or larger groups or honeymooners who want privacy. It tick all the boxes. Not that far from town but far enough away that it was you...

After the hustle and bustle of Port Vila, Island Magic is a quiet and pleasant oasis. Situated about a 15 minute drive from downtown Vila on the seafront of Mele Bay. As a word of caution, we got ripped off by a taxi driver at the airport. Island Magic is not mentioned on the list of accomodations at the airport...

We stayed at island magic for four nights. The bungalows are nice, like you would find on a seaside holiday in australia. The snorkeling is right in front of the bungalows off the jetty or just stand on the jetty and feed the fish. The fish are many and plentiful. The location on mele bay is very nice. The tanna...

Jane and David who manage the place go out of their way to make your holiday a success. The snorkelling is good just in front of the resort and buses are plentiful and cheap.
