My mother and I recently returned from a 7 night stay at the wonderful Aquana Beach Resort. I can't praise this resort enough. Every single staff member that we encountered went out of their way to ensure that our trip was one to remember. Our 2-bedroom bungalow (situated in the 2nd row back from the water) was just the right size and had everything we could want; from the porch swing, lovely clean bathroom, tea and coffee facilities, to the DVD player we used for a relaxing movie of an evening before bed. The meals were AMAZING. Though a little pricy (you will pay standard Australian meal prices), to me they were worth every cent. I am a vegetarian and the staff members went out of their way to cater to my dietary requirements without any fuss. We partook in Happy Hour, and they also make one heck of a coffee if you can't skip out on your daily coffee ritual. Having free access to the non-motorised water sports was a great addition. My Mum and I found ourselves out kayaking nearly every day, exploring the surrounding waters and nearby beaches. The resort also helped us organise day tours: I personally went zip-lining (which is a great experience for the adventurous types). We did a day trip to Eton Beach and the Blue Lagoon, which is not to be missed. We also did a walk into the local village led by an employee of the resort who guided us through the village where we were able to look at the local houses and even visit the school. The resort itself was extremely clean, tidy and welcoming, with daily house-keeping that was vigilant in ensuring that you always returned to a clean and fresh bungalow. We did not have any kids in our travel party, but it was evident that this resort would be an ideal place to travel with children. The nannys that worked at Aquana were nothing short of amazing. We watched them care for every single child in the resort, and every one of them went out of their way to ensure that the kids were safe and always having fun. I wish we could have stayed longer than 7 nights, but i'll definitely have Aquana in mind if I return to Vanuatu in the near future.
