In June of 2014 12 divers from Mississippi traveled to Wananavu Beach Resort and we had 9 glorious days with 13 dives. The Last dive was the Cat's Meow and it was like diving in an overcrowded exotic fish aquarium with the most beautiful soft coral. The Dive Staff was the very best. So friendly and just fit in with... More

This is a great resort, the road leading to the resort is unsealed so a bit of a rough ride for 3 to 5 kms. They offered complimentary drinks on arrival and the rooms were neat and tidy. There were no telephones and TV in the room so guests could indulge in relaxation. The staff and service was exceptional.

Our group of 12 divers stayed in June 2014. The Staff was wonderful. As a dive group, our gear was taken care of by the Dive Team all week. They collected our dive gear from our rooms when we arrived and rinsed and dried it everyday. We had 6 days of 2 tank boat dives. We all used the on-site... More

We've been to many resorts on Viti Levu and Wananavu now ranks at the top for us. Delicious food, variety of activities, natural Fijian beauty and the excellent customer service shown through the friendly interaction with the staff is what sets it apart from the rest. We hope to visit again in the near future.

I had a great time at the resort. Can't complain about anything. I left my room unlocked the whole time and wasn't worried about it at all. Good snorkelling straight off the resort. Successful fishing trip. Good internet.

We stayed eight days with a five two-tank day dive package. Awesome beachfront honeymoon bure with an outdoor shower and plunge pool. Food was fabulous. We just can't say enough about the meals and you must try the Kokodo, Fiji's version of ceviche with Spanish Mackerel marinated in fresh coconut and lime juice. We had it everyday for both lunch...

Fabulous villas complete with all the amenities needed and desired. Surrounded by lush perfectly manicured gardens and the soft peaceful shore line. The restaurant and staff were wonderful. ONly downfall is the dive center is an after thought. Poorly staffed, managed and maintained
