(7 customer reviews)

$1,245

Water views and only several footsteps from the beach, Aquana Beach Resort is paradise for Schoolies Week. After a big year of exams and assessment, escaping to a tropical resort is the best way to celebrate schoolies. All rooms have air-conditioning and most with ocean views.

Days are spent on your private hammock, by the resort pool or toes in the sand on the resort’s own private beach and lagoon. Each night exclusive Schoolies parties take place at the resort before you have the option to head into the local clubs (for 18+ schoolies only). Stay at Aquana Beach Resort is the best combo of relaxation and celebration.

Q) Is Alcohol allowed at the Schoolies Hotel?
A) Yes. This is the Main Schoolies Event in Vanuatu – Sure Thing Schoolies Vanuatu is beachfront and the centre of the Schoolies action.

Q) Who goes in which room with each other?
A) Each group will get their room allocation, however, we don’t select the guest’s configurations within their group, they decide amongst themselves on arrival.

Q) Is there a Curfew?
A) No. You don’t have this restriction at Sure Thing Schoolies accommodation

Q) What Language do they speak in Vanuatu?
A) Most people in Vanuatu speak English very well, especially those who are linked with the tourism industry (eg. hotel staff, taxis, shop staff). Schoolies have no issues with communication in Vanuatu.

Q) Are things expensive in Vanuatu?
A) Things are priced similarly to what they would be in Australia. Though, you will find that certain things are remarkably cheaper.

Q) What’s the food like in Vanuatu?
A) Enjoy the fantastic food available on the main island of Vanuatu! The food includes all the normal stuff you would expect (remember that Australians are the main visitors to Vanuatu!) It would include things like Pizza, Chicken, Steak, Pasta, Fish and Chips, Wedges, Seafood, Burgers, Fresh Fruit. Basically, all the things you would be used to in Australia – The only difference is that the ingredients in Vanuatu are of much higher quality since they are all fresh and organic, and taste much better in Vanuatu. Y

Q) Do you cater for dietary requirements such as vegan or vegetarian?
A) Yes. Let us know in advance and we will request the correct food for you.

Q) When should I get my passport?
A) You don’t need a passport to make a booking, but you will need one before you travel. You get them at the Post Office. It’s a good idea not to wait too long after making a booking to start organising your passport. Try not to leave it any later than 2 months before you travel.

Q) Do I need a Visa?
A) No, you don’t need a visa to get into Vanuatu if you have an Australian Passport.

Q) Can I plug my things in and get electricity?
A) Yes. Most visitors to Vanuatu are from Australia, so they cater for all our electrical products – they use the same plugs and voltage.

Q) Can we tip and bargain in Vanuatu?
A) In some cultures, tipping and bargaining are common. This is not the case in Vanuatu. If you see something for sale at a certain price, do not try to bargain as it is against their custom. At the same time, tipping isn’t part of their custom either. So if you’re happy with someone’s service, just smile and say “Tankyu Tumas” (Thanks a lot) rather than giving a tip. They feel bad accepting any tips and will refuse. The only time you can bargain a price is with a taxi ride (if you need to use one for any reason) since there isn’t set pricing in place.

Q) What’s the transport like?
A) In town there are many taxis and buses in Vanuatu which can generally be flagged down as they pass you. Buses are cheaper, and it should cost you only 150VATU (under $2 Australian) to get to another part of town. If you need any help, ask a staff member or rep from Sure Thing Schoolies who will be on-site at the accommodation.

Q) Do we need immunisations?
A) Vanuatu is a very safe place to visit in this regard, safer than Australia, however, please consult your doctor if you have any questions.

Q) What is ATAS accreditation?
A) This is the highest level of accreditation available to Australian Travel Agents and Tour Operators. Only the best of the best have this qualification. Sure Thing Schoolies is honoured to have ATAS accreditation. Sure Thing is the only Schoolies company that is ATAS accredited – ensuring you reliability, credibility, professionalism and an absolutely awesome Schoolies week.

Q) Are under 18s allowed to drink in Vanuatu?
A) In relation to drinking, it is the same limitations apply as in Australia, however, it not enforced. If you choose to drink as a young adult on Schoolies, responsible use is encouraged. There is a great Schoolies vibe at the Schoolies accommodation that can be enjoyed every evening for all Schoolies regardless of age. Staying at the Schoolies accommodation is a huge advantage for those who are under 18 as it gives you a venue to enjoy and celebrate your Schoolies week. Schoolies are generally aged 16 and 18, those who have been to Vanuatu in previous years have mentioned that the rules overseas are very laid back, so they chose to drink during Schoolies Week.

Q) How do we make sure we get the Schoolies wristband for Vanuatu?
A) When you arrive at the airport, you will be given a VIP Schoolies Vanuatu colour-coded wristband which you will use to get your meals as well as to access your accommodation. This should be kept on at all times, it also has important contact information on there. This is the only way to access the Schoolies parties and activities in Vanuatu since Sure Thing Schoolies is the Official organiser of Schoolies in Vanuatu.

Q) We’ve heard that Schoolies in Vanuatu with Sure Thing is awesome. Is it?
A) Sure Thing Schoolies has a decade of experience running Schoolies events. Get set for the best week of your life, guaranteed.

Q) How soon should we book?
A) Just like the hottest concert tickets… The schoolies hotel rooms get snapped up nice and early, the earlier you book, the better it is for you. To get things rolling, contact schoolies@surething.com.au and let them know how many people are in your group. From there, they will send you an itinerary of the best available rooms and will give you details on how you can make them yours!
