We stayed at Wananavu for 5 nights with a crew of three adults and eight high school students on an extraordinary adventure. Four kids were still finishing their dive certifications and the remainder were more experienced. We stayed in the villa at the top of the hill. This used to be the resort founder's house which shows in the attention... More

Truly a wonderful dive destination with a great relaxing atmosphere. The diving was well organised and the diving itself was spectacular. The resort staff were wonderful and friendly and couldn't do enough to make your stay a comfortable one. A truly relaxed atmosphere.

My stay here was absolutely fantastic! This place truly has it all - delicious food, gorgeous location, variety of fun activities, and the most friendly staff I have ever encountered! The menu is not extensive, but it does change every day and always includes a vegetarian or vegan option. The scenery is perfect as a postcard with plenty of hammocks... More

Our daughter treated us to two nights at Wananavu and what a delight it is. The resort is nestled into the palms and very unpretentious yet also very luxurious. The staff are very professional and friendly, and knew our names by the end of the first day. The rooms/cabins are very clean, spacious, with a large bathroom and glass walled... More

Having been to many dive resorts around the world I want to compare Wananavu to other similar operations. Many places have fine food, or lovely rooms, or great views, or idyllic environments, or warm welcoming staff, or good service, or great dive operations and magnificent pristine reefs. What sets Wananavu apart is that it has them ALL ! The moment... More

Overall, an excellent trip and stay. As part of a large dive centric group, there was always plenty going on, both on the surface and underwater. If you're not a diver then then you'd better like lounging by the pool, the bar or the small beach because there's very little else to do. Resort bures are good quality with the... More

With my girlfriend we wanted to explore the Blight Water and the diving aroud Rakiraki. Wananavu was the best choice possible. Sitting on a hill the resort offers beautiful bure, very private, air conditionned and facing the sea. The pool side got a waterfall and the bar overlooked it while offering a nice view on the different islands. You have... More

A relaxing stay away from it all with beautiful views. Our package included airport transfers which was good value as it is a 3 hour drive from Nadi. Our garden room was clean and well presented, with mini bar. The Day Spa was very pleasant with friendly staff and professional services/products. Restaurant meals did vary and were reasonably priced. Service... More

Staying at Wananavu and what a great place. Nice location nice food. Walk a few metres to the water. Food last night was seriously good and the staff helpful and pleasant. A band played at lunch and another at dinner. We hired a two bedroom beachfront villa with a kitchen. It is private and looks straight down onto a small... More
