Upon arrival Jerry and staff made us feel straight at home. The bungalow "room 10" was in the prime location with a 10 step walk to the restaurant and directly in front of the pier. And in my opinion the best view of the bay and resort. The staff were more than helpful from taking care of the bungalow to... More

Magic resort magic people! Very peaceful and private, Away from the hustle and bustle of Port Vila but close enough if you want to go there. Tropical garden is a treat and lovely big trees offer shade and listening to the breeze through them is very relaxing, Great place to spend quality time with friends and family.

We enjoyed our time at Island Magic recently. The staff are so friendly and accommodating, the food is absolutely delicious and the bungalows just gorgeous. Your own private beach and jetty has the most spectacular snorkelling with crystal blue water and colourful fish and coral everywhere you look. My kids loved the pool and volleyball and the staff even joined... More

Our group of family and friends had a wonderful stay at Island Magic in Dec. It ticked all the boxes for us: clean comfortable accommodation, quiet beach front location, snorkeling out front, pool, and choice of self-catering or eating at onsite restaurant. The bungalows are spacious and well appointed, with good sized covered verandahs. The bungalows are spread out over... More

It was beautifully situated for day walks to the waterfalls and the summit. The food was amazing with all the staff so helpful and friendly. We have travelled over 10 countries... More
