We have just returned from 8 nights staying at Aquana Beach Resort. We thought we would eat at the resort restaurant a few times, and then try some other restaurants in town. We ate at Aquana every night!!! The Vanuatu beef is the best we have ever tasted, and my husband worked his way through all the beef items on the menu! The Melanesian Chicken Curry was so delicious, I ordered it three or four times during our stay. We shared the Seafood Platter for two, between three of us, and wow! Just wow! There were lots of oohs and aahs as it came to the table. Our kids loved it too!! We only managed dessert once or twice, and the apple cake and the chocolate slice were both scrumptious! The staff are just wonderful, and took such good care of us. And the setting, right on the water, you can see fish swimming around from your table !

We stopped here for lunch and it was a very relaxing place. The staff met us outside the resort and took us by the beach under some trees where our tables were set. Then a very friendly waitress came to take our orders for lunch. The fish sandwich was excellent. The fish was fresh and lightly breaded and fried. It came with a generous serving of fries.

Fabienne and Marcelle are the ultimate hosts.

The resort is situated in a secluded bay- designed to accommodate all family needs... there is a full contingent of nannies who surrounded the kids at all times, arranging and accommodating different activities, supervising eating, swimming, kayaking as well as a number of other activities.

The resort organised a number of different day trips for us and another family- accomodating all requests, as well as arranging an adults' night out, where transport and nannies were included.

The food in the resort is amazing and exceeded all other dining experiences on the island!

This resort is definitely for families, and is a cost effective holiday, designed to keep the kids entertained whilst the adults relax.

Only downfall is the drive into the resort is a 5km bumpy dirt road that is not for the feint hearted....

However, brave the drive and be met with a safe, fun trip for the family.

Snorkel gear is provided... however recommend take your own plus noodles if taking the kids deep sea snorkelling.

Hideaway Island is also a must!

Whether you are lucky enough to be staying at Aquana Beach Resort or simply want to taste the best food in Vanuatu you are simply not going to find a better option. Aquana has many qualities however be assured that their extensive menu featuring quality local produce crafted into some of the most enjoyable treats your tastebuds could ever hope to encounter is second to none. Chef Marcelle’s dedicated team are simply superb which is evident with the solid support of locals who frequent the restaurant particularly on the weekends. Make no mistake, you will love the food and anticipate a healthy weight gain, but be assured these will be the finest organic and most delectable pounds you will ever hope to gain! The stand out is their signature two-tiered seafood platter for two is simply the best we ever hope to try to demolish! All in a delightful, peaceful setting with the most wonderful and attentive wait staff...all of which will ensure you keep coming back to Aquana until you have tried all the menu at least twice.

I've taken my family members here a number of times and must say, i've thoroughly enjoyed this place so much, the staff members to the presentable food and drinks is a must have experience when youre in Port Vila. Can't wait to head back there when I re-visit my friends and families in Vanuatu. Highly recommend the place and can assure you that you will enjoy it. There are even staff members who take care of your kids whilst you enjoy your food and drinks. The location is breathtakingly beautiful and very private too which is lovely.
