We (husband, myself, 6 yr old and 8 yr old) have just returned from Aquana. There were 2 reasons I picked this resort; it was one of the few resorts in Port Vila that have 2 bedroom accommodation and it had the best reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed at all and everyone enjoyed it. We loved that...

We travelled with 4 children aged 1,3,12 and 14 - this place is perfect for all. The nannies are so well rounded, friendly and smiling from the moment you walk in. They will take the little ones exploring to find hermit crabs and star fish and play on the trampoline and the big ones on kayaking expeditions, play ping pong...

After reading countless reviews, we came with high expectations. I can honestly say those expectorations were exceeded. The friendly owners and management have done an amazing job surrounding themselves with a great bunch of people. It doesn't hurt that resort is in a secluded peace of paradise either. The meals are 5 star (we loved the beef) The nannies are...

As we stepped through the main door into the resort lobby we were presented with shell necklaces and a cold fruit punch. I turned my head and noticed our 11 and 13 year old sons had been whisked away by a member of the childcare staff and were showing them around the resort. Fabienne, one of the fantastic owners of...

We've recently returned from our second trip to Aquana and it just keeps getting better and better. The staff are incredible, nothing is too much trouble and they go out of their way to make your trip as enjoyable as possible and you couldn't ask for a better team of nannies to look after your children. The food is delicious...

Had a superb lunch here with local friends early September - beautiful setting and great effort to get this resort to where it is at. The risotto was the best I have had for a long time and the service with a smile just topped it off.

We first visited Aquanas in November 2012 and loved it! We returned in September 2014 with friends and had an amazing stay! Staff welcomed (& remembered us). We felt at home the moment we arrived, as did our friends. It was great to see all the improvements made to an already awesome resort. Would I return .. in a heartbeat!...

We (me, my husband and our 2 girls aged 3 and 6) stayed at Aquana resort for 2 weeks in June / July and had a fantastic time. It's the first time we've stayed at a smaller resort, generally favouring the larger, international groups but Aquana was such a refreshing, eye opening change! There were fewer rules and regulations and...

This place is simply amazing! There is something magic going on here. Perhaps a combination of the amazing staff who make you feel at home, the nannies who truly love being with your kids, the delicious food and cocktails and the wonderful little islands just a short boat ride away. We stayed for 8 night with our 5 and 2...

Very relaxed holiday. Nice to have extra help with the kids with nannies but they need more structure or organized activities to keep the childrens' interest. Food was very good. Setting was ideal for young kids, calm water, but pool too cold. Great to have use of kayaks and snorkeling nearby. Enjoyed village walk. Staff very friendly and helpful. Thank...
