On arrival to Fiji we transferred to Wananavu for four nights. Perfect? No, but nearly so. The biggest faults were not really theirs. Ever seen Airplane? Well, why on earth did I get the fish on my Fiji Airways flight. Second mistake was traveling as a couple during Australian school holidays. Yes the resort offered great specials and they were...

My husband and I spent 7 nights in Wananavu - and it was a perfect combination of sun, swimming, diving, food and relaxation. The first 5 nights were in an Oceanview Honeymoon Bure. The room was grand and beautiful. It opened out onto a deck with a private plunge pool and sun beds. The view was spectacular, and we spent... More

It has taken me several weeks to make this review. I am still unable to find the words to say about our experience. Fiji was my dream vacation for over 26 years and I finally made it! I had set myself up for the trip of a lifetime and I was NOT disappointed in any way. Being in tourism in... More

Fantastic resort, great people,great food, stunning outlook and beautiful grounds. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and well serviced. What more can we say but read on.The snorkeling off the resort by the end of the marina is as good as anywhere. Day trips and activities are well run and informative especially Avalone's talks and walks. We do not dive but... More

We spent five nights in a beachfront bure which we found perfect for relaxation. The bed was good, a king size. The shower was good, hot and powerful. The A/C worked fine. The beach was literally just metres in front of our bure. The ocean view bures also look very good and are closer to the restaurant. The meals were... More

With lots of Caribbean resort experience in the past decade, this was our first trip to the Pacific. Wananavu was recommended to us by Padi, the US diving organization that has served us so well before. We like smaller resorts, with beach-front accommodation, meals, diving all included. At the northern tip of Viti Levu (the main island of Fiji) it... More

Had lunch with 2 friends from Melbourne. Great food and beautiful scenario over the waters reaching to Nanau I Ra with the soft music in the background by the Hotel serenaders can make your day trip worth while.

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.

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
