the ideal picturesque island getaway


Resort Accommodation in the region of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu

Two Canoes is a quiet hidden gem with a look and a vibe of a casual ocean-side retreat – but nonetheless delivers a resort-like experience with on-site amenities, attentive and personalised service, activities, and quaint, well-designed rooms along with an onsite Beachside Diner & Bar.

Just two and a half hours by air from Australia, Two Canoes, Vanuatu's newest micro-resort that caters for no more than 8 guests at any one time, frames the stunning blue waters of Aimbuei Bay on Aore Island, just off Espiritu Santo.

Three elevate Beachfront Cabins sit amongst the swaying palms of the coconut plantation while the Beachside Diner and Bar is serenaded by the lapping gentle sounds from the sandy white beach. Gourmet meals prepared by one of the regions best chefs is an added bonus to this idyllic but informal setting, located just a ten minute boat ride from Luganville, Espiritu Santo making Two Canoes easy to get to and very hard to leave.

"Was like being in paradise on a deserted island. Quite isolated, only 3 cabins and 3 staff. Manager Vira was very accommodating assisting us with every whim. Cook Belinda managed to produce wonderful meals at lunch and dinner and the rooms where very comfortable and well appointed." Susan
