Aore Island Resort (Santo)
The hardest thing about Aore Island Resort is the pronunciation – ‘ow-ree’. This is a laid-back boutique island resort just 3km across the channel from Luganville on Santo. It is 10 minutes by launch across the channel to Aore. There are 16 bungalows (3 garden and 13 beachfront) and all have private bathrooms, hot showers, refrigerators, tea/coffee making facilities and fans. It is a very casual resort with a terrific restaurant.
The friendly staff will make you feel welcome and look after your every need and while there’s excellent snorkelling, handy world-famous diving plus kayaking and caves to explore. But perhaps the most memorable experience will be sitting on your balcony, looking across to Santo to the sounds of waves lapping and fish skimming.
