My husband and I travelled with our 2 yr old son and myparents in law.We had seperate bungalows.Ours was a 2 bed,2 bathroom bungalow -which was a godsend for not waking our son if we needed to go use a bathroom!Both bedrooms had ensuites-rooms spacious and what a well equipped kitchen-it had everything from champagne glasses ,flashlight,alfoil,salt and pepper etc.
There is no restaraunt onsite,but a great kitchen in all bungalows and a fantastic communal BBQ hut.Initially I was concerned with no pool fence but this was not an issue at all with our toddler.
There is a great jetty with stunning snorkelling right there,looking towards Hideaway Island.
Both Jane and David went out of their way for our family and were excellent hosts-thank you so much!

The accommodation was fantastic for our family (2 teenage daughters). There are two large ensuite bedrooms, dining and living areas and fully equipped kitchen. Outside is covered veranda overlooking the sea just metres away. There is a communal pool and BBQ area, and a jetty into the sea from which you can swim/snorkel from (no sandy beach though). It was ideal for older children but probably not enclosed enough for families of young children. It was a 20 minute bus ride into town for restaurants and supermarkets but we enjoyed the location away from the hustle and bustle of town. The managers are extremely friendly and helpful and make the holiday stress free! Great place for just unwinding.....

Island magic would have to be one of the best resorts we have stayed at, the managers Jane & Dave are brilliant ,very laid back and friendly but run the resort really well, they are always there to help whether it is advice, booking trips & tours, or a lift into town.
The cleaning and garden staff also do a great job, everything is lovely and clean and tidy and well maintained.
The bungalows are very roomy and airy with comfy beds and huge showers, well laid out and easy to live in.
The foreshore and jetty are a great place to sit with an early morning cuppa and watch the sun come up, and the snorkelling off the jetty is fantastic, better coral than Hideaway Island but less fish.
Hideaway Island is about 30 mins walk along the beach to the ferry, Mele cascades are about 45 mins walk and Secret garden is about 30 mins walk, Port Vila is about 15 mins by car/bus, so for a resort out of town it is close to many of the islands main attractions.
For an easy going, laid back resort for people who are not into organised activities or night life but who want a peaceful, comfortable base to explore the island from I could not recomend it more highly.

We just got back from a weeks' holiday to Vanuatu. Island Magic resort offered second-to-none self contained accomodation in a most appealing location. We know that we would have had an absolute HOOT of a time had it not been for our three young children (4, 3 and 1). As I was looking for advice on good accom for kids in Vanuatu before we left, I thought I'd leave my two bob's worth now. Island Magic is the ideal place to stay in Vanuatu for singles, couples and possibly couples with one small child. But it ain't good for little ones. The decks off the villas are unfenced and a hazard to toddlers, the pool is unfenced, the pathways are all stone and ouchy for little feet and the sea is immediately deep with no beach for playing.

This is not a bad review as the resort is LOVELY, just a warning for people with littlies.

Island Magic Resort,VANUATU. SOUTH PACIFIC

We have just come back from spending a week
at Island Magic Resort, Vanuatu with two friends.
This resort is truly named so well as it is truly
Magic. If you want to go to a special place this is
truly it. If you like staying in your own bungalow, with 2 bedrooms, 2 ensuites, with your own kitchen and laundry facilites you have it all.If you love to snorkel by just walking
into the water at your front door and see a water garden in
full coral, so many colours,so many varieties of beautiful
tropical fish swimming around you, little nemo's looking
into your face, then when you just cant swim any more, what better way to relax laying under a shaded tree looking across at hideaway island and the entrance to vanuatu harbour across the way, reading a book an enjoying a glass of wine in this most peaceful surroundings.The pool is near the b.b.q hut where all
get together for happy hour. We did not want to leave island
magic and only went into vanuatu for our weekly groceries and
to do shopping to take back home. You have everything at your
doorstep, but if you want to go on tours or special outing, or
out for dinner, all arrangements can be made for you by the
friendly managers that live onsite there..
This is our 4th trip to Island Magic Resort and each time it
is a truly new experience..The local people of Vanuatu are so
friendly and make you so welcome. For a totally relaxing and magical experience we recommend you visit Island Magic Resort and enjoy the Magic of Vanuatu.
