Aore Island Resort

Hotel | "Aore Resort"

The Aore resort is an independent resort isolated on Aore island right across the channel from Luganville. Overall, we were very happy with our choice. We rented a beachfront bungalow for around US$75/night. It had a separate bedroom, screens, a ceiling fan, a mini-fridge, and a private full bath. The furnishings were nothing special, but it was cool, clean, and 10 feet from excellent snorkleling water. They run a shuttle boat between Luganville and Aore, it takes about five minutes and they'll arrange times with you if they can. The Aore also had EXCELLENT food at reasonable prices. It's a low key place, with only 16 or so units, but we got resort privacy with B&B style hospitality. Recommend...Read More
