From the first email we received confirming our booking with Aquana, we knew we'd found vacation gold. Quick and informative replays made planning our trip to Aquana a dream. Once we got to Vanuatu we were picked up by a personal driver and taken to our home for the next four weeks--only it became better than home. The staff watched...

Even as a day guest, from the cold face towels on arrival, the friendly staff, the little amuse bouche as we waited for our lunch, Aquana is consistently good. The food prices are realistic (unlike some places in Port Vila which charge silver service prices for cafe food) and the quality of the meals is very good. Aquana also has...

I recently returned to Aquana Beach Resort for my second holiday with my sister and her 7 year old grand daughter. I thought the Resort was just wonderful the first time I stayed there but my second visit was even better. There is a new spa room out at the end of a jetty and new tiled walkways as well...

I'd love to give Aquana more stars but there were several things which took away from that. Most of them were minor though and if fixed I would give it a 4.5 to 5 star rating. First up, the information booklet could be a lot more comprehensive, e.g. you can drink the tap water, it is very nice and bug...

Its taken me a while to decide whether to write this review or not, because the people who run this hotel are just lovely, lovely people who really seem to be trying the best with what they have. That said, even without the awareness of extenuating circumstances that we gained only after the event, I would still say this resort...

Dear Jodhi Thank you very much for your very thorough review of your stay at Aquana. We are of course very disappointed when someone does not feel they have had their expectations met.

Recently stayed at Aquana and it was great. The setting is amazing and the food is good. It's especially great to be able to relax without having to worry about our 5yo the whole time because of the great work of the nannies. This is a great resort for families with young kids.

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.
