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

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

We only spent 1 night there but will defenately be back. This resort is the best we have stayed in at Rakiraki. Beautiful gardens well kept and spotlessly clean. The small beach is ideal, lovely sandy beach and palm trees. The ocean view Bure is well appointed, clean and comfortable. We had dinner and the food was nice, well presented.... More

This trip was booked as part of a 10 day diving excursion with our local dive shop. Yes it's an 11 hour flight from LAX, and yes it's a 3 hour ride from Nadi to the resort. However, we got in way later than our expected arrival and we were greeted by the staff with big smiles and a lot... More

Went here for a friend's wedding. It was absolutely spectacular. The rooms were great, staff all knew my name (and everyone that was staying there too) and the experience was absolutely brilliant. I would highly recommend this place for any groups of friends. Also great for couples.

I can't work out who wouldn't enjoy this place. For value, views, service AND cooked breakfasts - Wananavu is outstanding. We are local (Suva) and I can't comment on standard rates, but compared with resorts on the Coral Coast and Denerau, we were impressed with the rate and what you get for it. The rooms are tidy (we stayed in... More

We didn't stay here, but we walked here most days from the house we were out just a few minutes down the road. The staff was very welcoming every time we came. We had many meals here, hung out at the bar, went on a snorkling trip, and had some spa treatments done. The dive master here helped finsih our... More

Best way to describe this resort is: run-down, shabby, unkept, unclean...a real dissappointment. This is only day 1 of 5, but not excited about being here. Came for the diving in the Blight waters and reviews sounded good....definitely not up to the ratings it's been getting.
