We did not stay at this accommodation, but will in the future.
We came for dinner......3 nights in a row.
Half of us are vegan and finding good food on the Island is tricky for us but at Island Magic restaurant, nothing is a problem.
Our meals were superb, the service fantastic and the host made us feel like family.
We cannot thank you enough and recommend this place to everyone that visits the island ❤️🌱

My family (2A, 2 kids 10 and 12) stayed 7 nights at Island Magic. We highly recommend this resort - lovely grounds and best snorkelling ever. Be game and go off the jetty - it is fantastic. Best coral we have ever seen and fish galore. We went to hideaway one of our days to snorkel - but straight off the Island Magic resort jetty is a million times better. The kids even rated it better than Queensland's Great Barrier Reef!

The bungalows are very spacious and have everything you need. Gerry, the resort manager, was very helpful and always checking we were enjoying ourselves and happy. The kids loved the volleyball court and the Joe, a resort staff grounds keeper, was great with the kids.

The self catering option made for an affordable holiday. Getting fresh produce from the markets was easy and the quality of the fruit and veggies was brilliant. The prices of fresh produce were very reasonable. Getting beef from the local supermarket was similar prices to home too, which we didn't expect.

The resort location was great right on Mele Bay looking across to Hideaway Island and Vila in the far distance - beautiful views from our bungalow deck. We stayed in a breachfront bungalow - which I recommend.

It was only a 20 minute bus ride into Vila - which was easy and inexpensive. It was nice to be staying away from Vila which is a bit busy.

We stayed with a package that included continental breakfast each day. The breakfast was very generous - cereal, a variety of fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast, tea/coffee/juice.

We don't usually return to the same place twice - but we may break this tradition and go back to Island Magic - it was so relaxing and enjoyable - magic like the name!

Island Magic hospitality was awesome. From our very late checkin (2am) to the day we left, everything went smoothly.
Gerry is a great host, nothing was too much trouble. Helped us with booking of activities to friendly advice on what we could do. The smiling, friendly staff at Island Magic could not be faulted.
The accomadation and facilities were great, all we could ask for.
Paradise, listening to the waves crash on the shore, the beautiful setting, who wouldn't be able to relax.

There are village markets along the roadside but your best bet is the main markets in Port Vila itself which operate every day but Sunday.

Hi Paul, Most people get a car for a couple of days to go around the island and visit different places. A bus that picks you up from the resort and brings you into town cost 400vt p.p. a bus that you pick up from the road... More
