We did not stay at Oyster island but rather had an enjoyable experience having lunch and kayaking out to Matevulu blue hole from here. For lunch we ordered a variety of dishes - I personally got the lobster for 2000 VUV and shared a jug of sangria with friends and was truly impressed! The lobster was perfectly cooked, and I...

We stayed at Oyster Private Island for 3 nights. The staff are helpful and very easy to get along with. They have Kayaks and snorkling equipment available free of charge for anyone staying at the resort. You can kayak to the Blue Holes which is a must do. Snorkel around the island where they have 3 plane wrecks just meters...

We stayed for a few days, and really enjoyed our time on Oyster Island. The staff are super-friendly, as is the owner who is around daily. The rooms are pleasant, and the shower has hot water on demand, which is wonderful. The island itself is simple and has a few beaches which you can snorkel from. The highlights are getting...

Place is very good for snorkelling and maybe diving, kayaking to nearby islands or to nearby rivers and blue holes. All that you can do on your own. And yet just a half an hour drive to Luganville and airport, so you don't need to spend lot of time in/out. The island, being quite small, also has some to explore....

A bit of a late review but it sounds like Oyster Island is heading back to where it was. We travelled in February '16 when Brad and Sarah were still resort managers and they blew us away. We visited one day just to have a look and they convinced us to come back the next day so they could take...

We stayed at Oyster Island Resort for 12 nights. From our first sight of the resort we knew that it was perfect for us - the staff were amazing! The room was romantic and we loved the outdoor shower and relaxing on our balcony. The snorkelling was fabulous from Midway beach especially at high tide and the food was exceptional....

I took the family (3 kids under 10) and stayed for 3 nights. It was quiet at that time but the experience was terrific. The accommodation was clean and well set-up for our family, the food was fabulous, and the staff just brilliant. Plenty of walks, stunning beaches, snorkelling, kayaking and swimming all on the island, and it's just too...

My wife and two young kids stayed at Oyster Island Resort in early July. We were a bit concerned with some of the poor reviews being left leading up to our stay, but I can say you can largely ignore some of those reviews from pre-June. Firstly, the new experienced managers came in at the start of June and have...

We originally booked based on some great reviews, it seemed to be perfect. Then before we left the bad reviews came in. I'm happy to say we enjoyed our stay, but there is room to improve. It was quiet, but that's the beauty of this location.The location and helpfulness of the staff are still great. We had a deluxe waterfront...
