tropical island weddings 

Getting married or renewing your vows?

At Aore Island Resort, we understand the significance of these life events and it is our privilege to assist you.

Our in-house wedding planner Montana is on hand to ensure that your day is stress free and aligns perfectly with your personal wishes for the occasion.

Aore Island Resort can cater for large wedding parties with exclusive use of the resort, smaller groups or even just the special couple.

Aore Island Resort is a stunning Pacific Island retreat with an authentic and welcoming culture nestled in a unique natural paradise.

Take a short boat trip across Segond Canal from Luganville and you will arrive in paradise - a welcoming boutique resort that offers all the comforts of home with none of the everyday distractions. Whether you’ve come here for a romantic getaway, group celebration or family vacation, Aore Island Resort is the place for you!

The large breezy Nakamal (traditional Ni-Vanuatu meeting place) is the heart of Aore Island Resort. Overlooking the resort’s private white sandy beach and the tranquil waters of Segond Canal, it is the perfect place to relax over a cup of local organic Aore Island coffee, fresh cocktail from the fully stocked bar or delicious meal created from the best locally sourced produce.

Relax on one of the resorts sun lounges around the pool or on the beach, which offers amazing snorkelling straight off the shore! Take one of the resort bikes out to explore further afield around Aore Island or treat yourself and book into the Spa for a professional beauty treatment or relaxing island massage.

With a ferry running to the mainland multiple times a day, Aore Island Resort is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the best Santo has to offer. Or alternatively, if you aren’t staying at Aore Island Resort catch the ferry to the resort and spend the day in paradise!

Aore Island Resort has two accommodation options to choose from - the Sunset Bungalows, which are ideal for families and groups, and the Sunrise Bungalows, which are adult only and perfect for couples and singles. All the bungalows are constructed using local timbers and have roofs made from local natangora ensuring warm traditional ambience. All the bungalows have private bathrooms, hot showers, refrigerators, tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryers and ceiling fans. Cots are available by request. 

The Sunset Bungalows feature a comfortable living area with two single beds and a double bed in a separate bedroom. These bungalows are suitable for two to three adults or two adults and two children and are available either beachfront or setback in our lush tropical gardens for the budget conscious.

The Sunrise Bungalows are set apart to provide a quiet private area and are suitable for two people twin share and recommended for couples. These studio style bungalows are also available beachfront or setback in our lush tropical gardens.

Visitor Feedback

Just a short boat ride from Luganville.
Fabulous, good food. Fresh, local produce. Nice, clean bungalows with direct access to the clearest, beautiful water. Local, friendly staff. Plenty of tours can be arranged. The blue holes and Champagne Beach tour was amazing. Just the place for a quiet relaxing getaway. Loved every minute!
