I enjoyed my stay here but there are a couple of things that could be improved upon but firstly, the good points: - Staff are really friendly and are great with kids if you are travelling as a family. - Facilities are in good condition. The tennis court looked great. There is a smallish swimming pool. Kayaks are available free... More

We had just arrived from USA and were travelling to Suva from Nadi via back road. We have stayed at this resort before and often stop over for a cup of coffee. But this time the security man would not allow us to enter. It seemed like he didnt have customer service manners. We said we just wanted to stop... More

Very nice place to stay but for a honeymoon room expected better service for the price we payed. There is no phone in the rooms,for room service food order. Overall the location was nice right next to the beach. Room was as you can see in the picture.

Went to Wanunavu with my boyfriend and had the trip of a lifetime. The resort always felt empty and remote - like we had booked the entire place to ourselves. We knew it had lots of people because we saw them at mealtimes but during the day there was enough space for everyone no matter if we were at the... More

Gorgeous location, had a beach view bure with brilliant view and right on the beach. Wonderful staff- can't praise highly enough especially Illy (wedding coordinator) and Jovilisi (security). Extra touches were great- nightly fire ritual, kava drinks and leaving song. Wish we were back already! Would suggest turtle airways for sea plane transfers, good value, great service and only 30...

We were treated like VIP's the entire time. Keleni and Illy were fabulous planners and supporters quicking reorganising and activating alternative arrangemeets due to the cyclonic weather on...

We had 7 nights at Wananavu Beach Resort in mid December 2015. Its located on the main island about 3 hours by car/bus north of Nadi airport at Rakiraki. The resort isn't big like some of those on the Coral Coast we've stayed at before so it was much more laid back, always plenty of room in the pool and... More
