Aore Island ResortAore, Vanuatu

Looking for a different pace of life, Anne, an Aussie, and her husband fell in love with this resort and snapped it up when it went on sale. We can’t guarantee you won’t have the same reaction when you visit, although good luck trying to wrest the title deed off these proud owners.

Aore Island Resort offers 18 smart bungalows spread along a sandy coral beach not far from Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu’s largest island. There’s a pool, some large shady trees to relax under and plenty to explore since the island’s been the site of many archaeological discoveries. Plus, divers and snorkellers will be in aquatic heaven – there are plenty of World War II wrecks to explore and coral gardens galore.
