Aore Island Resort

A relaxing boutique private island experience

Conveniently located only 10 minutes by boat from Luganville

Aore Island Resort offers its guests the best of both worlds. A remote island paradise and easy access to Espiritu Santo's many attractions

Family owned and operated, guests at Aore are immediately embraced by its familial warmth

There is something very welcoming about Aore (pronounced Ow-Ree). Its 18 Studio and One Bedroom Bungalows (garden and beach front) are spacious and comfortable. Constructed from locally sourced timbers with a Natangora Roof and Pacific influenced décor, they feel authentic and traditional, whilst offering the amenities required for a contemporary holiday. Studio Bungalows are suitable for adults only. One Bedroom Bungalows feature a living area with 2 single beds and a queen size bed in a separate room, making them ideal for families wanting to enjoy this wonderful island experience.

The Island is yours to explore

Santo is renowned for its underwater pursuits, and Aore guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to snorkelling, with a private marine sanctuary directly offshore to discover at your leisure, or excursions to reefs further afield. Above the water, guests can hike to WWII remnants, circumnavigate the Island in a kayak, while away a tranquil hour on a Stand Up Paddleboard, or they can cycle the coastal road to find a remote beach for a swim. Kids can swing off ropes into the ocean (remember when we used to do that….) or spend hours in the resort pool. There is a Day Spa for the adults and of course, there is the standard island holiday pursuit….doing as little as possible for the longest possible period.

An Amazing Holiday

We visited Aore Island Resort in December last year and had an absolutely incredible 7 night stay - beautiful resort and delicious food made even better by the people there. One of the greatest things for us was having the rooms so close to the water, which meant we didn't need to travel for access to pristine snorkeling, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding. The staff were also amazing and helped us organise different day trips, such as horse riding and a visit to a bluehole. We would highly recommend to all and can't wait to return
