My biggest compliments go to the staff of this little paradise who are all local islanders working the resort. The food was always fantastic, always so fresh, and the small number of visitors it accommodates is perfect! If your preference is a big Sheraton Hotel then don't come here. This is a place for those seeking smaller boutique style accommodation....

We stayed for 3 nights as the first part of a first trip to Vanuatu. I travelled with my wife and 2 adult children. We stayed in 2 separate bures right near the ocean (11 & 13). A great spot to relax and snorkel or use a sea kayak. We took the Malo Island trip and visited a blue hole...

We have just returned from an amazing honeymoon at Bokissa Island Resort. It was everything we wanted in a honeymoon and a great break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We spent 5 nights there, and would have loved to stay longer but we opted for 5 nights so that we could have direct flights from Brisbane to...

My partner and I stayed on Bokissa for 8 nights recently and it was everything we'd hoped for. Diving was amazing, as was the snorkeling. You can do as much or as little as you want. I did a combination of both and came home totally relaxed and nicely tanned! Staff are wonderful, very friendly and helpful, nothing is too...

I just had a great 5 days here with my wife and we generally enjoyed the experience. Did some excellent dives with the Bokissa dive masters and particularly enjoyed the Henry Bonneaud wreck as both a day and a night dive. The island also offers an enjoyable bush walk around its perimeter and allow 45 minutes minimum to do it....

Thanks for your response and glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and diving - it really is a special, beautiful place isn't it? Just to touch on your comments re checking out/your account etc. Bokissa does have a sign up and definately prefer if people who are leaving early check out and settle their account the day before departure...

Wow, what an awesome little find this place was ! A great island paradise with plenty of time to relax, unwind and enjoy the sunshine and crystal clear water. My wife and I went to Bokissa last week for our 26th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night get away. The food was superb and plentiful, especially the 2...

Stayed 6 nights last week. This is the place to go to get away from everything, very relaxing. The staff were all friendly and willing to help, nothing was too much trouble.

What a perfect island getaway. We stayed on Bokissa for 3 nights in a beachfront fare which we found to be comfortable and clean and serviced daily.
