Oyster Island will be closed until further notice. Set on a private 25 hectare island just 2 minutes crossing from the mainland. Oyster Island Resort resides within a Marine Reserve, abundant in marine and wild life. Sandy beaches, tropical rainforest, coral reefs and war plane wrecks make for fantastic snorkelling. Bungalows line the waters edge, each with private decks or patio's, enjoying stunning views out over the calm lagoon waters. Family Vila allow room for parents and children to enjoy the large grounds and gardens and are set off the water for safety. Skilled Chefs serve the very best of local and western cuisine from our waterfront restaurant. Only 20 minutes from the airport and township.

We loved the friendly staff especially the lovely Christina, and appreciated the professionalism and care from managers Bev and Nabil. There is so much to do at Oyster that we could have stayed a week - snorkelling, exploring islands by canoe, or doing walks on the island to quiet and private beaches. We stayed in the budget accommodatiion after a month visiting remote parts of Vanuatu and it was a real haven to be on Oyster. Great place for kids, and love being away from technology there. To the new owners - please don't change anything!

Firstly, Oyster Island is a truly beautiful place in a fabulous location. We never got tired of the outlook from our room, or walking the perimeter of the island, and the grounds and common areas always looked very tropical and well kept. Often the place felt deserted, even though we knew what other guests were there. Not a problem for us, as having paradise to ourselves is a luxury! Plenty to do and see around the area, Santo is a stunning place, and most tours etc, can be organized at the resort. However, communication problems abound, particularly when management are just not there. This led to some issues with guests missing tours and excursions. Personally we got along well with management and thought that Bev and Nabil were friendly and approachable. All the recent

Oyster island is a beautiful island ! We made a walk around the island and discovered some pretty amazing beaches, the resort itself feels a bit tired..The paths around the island were not maintained, there was no decent way to get into the sea.Their main attraction a plan wreck to snorkel to was badly signed and was almost impossible to get to, you basically had to crawl through the dead coral. We booked a standard room facing the river which was basic, small room with fan and a small bathroom. Probably you get what you pay for, but the resort was completely empty! We were the only guests, upgrading wouldn't have costed that much! Breakfast was ok, almost a la carte since we were alone. Dinner was better than expected ( good meat and lobster risotto). We were there the same

I wasn't overly impressed with Oyster Island at all. The place was DEAD!! We were the only couple there, every night we ate alone, drank alone, there was no ambience!! If you want to stay here, make sure you are prepared to pay for all your water, as the water isn't "safe to drink" which is a lie, as we know people who've stayed here numerous times over the years and the water has always been fine until recently.. sounds like another way to make money off the customers. We asked them to fill our personal water bottles (with lime juice at the bottom) with the rain water they have there, and the owner was very quick to inform us that we will get sick from the rain water and they haven't washed the tank is over 5 years.. he said "look at the water it's got bits in it, I hope

Location excellent with warm clear water. However nearby island can be very noisy at night. Accommodation basic with exposed wiring and not so comfortable bedding. t. Ran out of bottled water and wine over Christmas period as management does not seem to cope well and they are not always around to supervise.
