My husband and I have recently returned from an 11 night stay at Wananavu Beach Resort. We had a beautiful time. The resort is remotely tucked away on the north coast (Sun Coast) of Fiji's main island. Yes it is a three hour drive from the airport and while this was a little tedious it was worth the wait. The... More

We spent a week in Wananavu for our son's wedding. The wedding was beautiful. Nothing was a problem for the staff. Keleni and Illy were both easy to work with and kept us informed along the way. The ceremony was held on the grassed area near the beachfront and we had the reception on the sand under the lanterns at... More

I live in Fiji and have a local rate (hopefully less expensive than foreigners). But I have to give my opinion as I am not upset but very disappointed. We stay there on June 27th for one night. We were in an Ocean view bure (N°19). The room is dated, accommodation is very simple but why not. Garden is beautiful... More

This is such a beautiful unspoilt part of Fiji. We went here for a bit of peace and quiet away from the usual Denarau. Rural Fiji at its best, small town in Rakiraki, friendly locals. (I'm not sure the cost of transit from Nadi, we drove ourselves) Beachfront villas, pristine ocean, free kayaking/snorkeling and lots of expeditions to outer islands... More

During a trip all around Fiji my wife and I stayed here for a single night. Due to some unfortunate directions, we arrived extremely late - minutes after the dining room had closed entirely, not just for service. On seeing how tired we were, we were offered a full meal, which the chef offered to stay around for. No need... More

We were visiting the resort for a wedding and can thoroughly recommend this venue. As the wedding party had exclusive use of the resort the atmosphere was really festive and relaxed. The bures are built into the side of the hill and offer great views over the surrounding islands etc and the small balcony is great for that late afternoon... More

seriously one of lifes most beautiful locations overlooking the water and never-ending palm trees. This is a romantic and secluded hide-a-way so secluded you can hardly find it. Staff are beautiful and the rooms are sensational. This location is like something out of a story book. Twice visited and not going to stop calling into this place as often as... More

Having recently returned from this hotel for 12 nights, I feel that it would be fair to say that our overall experience was reasonable. Not great, good or poor, but reasonable. If we were rating Wananavu only on their staff, we would certainly recommend it. They were always welcoming and friendly, most especially in the restaurant and the dive shop/activities... More
