We stayed for a 6 night package right at the start of February this year, as a pre-birth final holiday (before life changes forever!). Sue and Pete, the new managers, were charming and accommodating and the staff on the island are friendly and sweet. Food was delish, with a continental breakfast of fresh fruit, cereals and island made bread and...

Easy flight from Brisbane into Santo airport and quick transfer to the island. All meals included, friendly staff and awesome diving & snorkelling. They have their own diving wreck and easy access to the US President Coolidge, a must for any wreck diver. If not into water sorts. lots of other activities to do.

The staff were all very friendly. The walking track around the island is great for seeing flying foxes. It's also good for the 'off the grid' feeling -...

Thanks for your feedback and review Andrew. Glad you loved the island and you had a great time - it sounds like the weather was good to you.

It was some months ago my husband and I stayed here (August 2016). With a desperate need for a break we booked this and had no idea what to expect. From the moment we were collected at the airport we found ourselves with 'Bokissa Royalty' ;) and our journey began. What a treat to stay at this most magical island...

We just returned from 2 weeks at Bokissa including Xmas and New Year. we had a great time with the staff, owners, managers and locals. so much to do, or not to do depending on what you are looking for. Turtles, Dugong, fish, crabs, and all of the usual attractions of a fantastic island.

We had a fantastic time at Bokissa Island Resort in August 2016. We had just married in Port Vila and when we told them that, they upgraded us for free and we stayed in the extra large and right over the waterfront Deluxe spa fare. Brilliant! The snorkelling was my favourite. So easy to access, straight off the beach, and...
