Wanna island was amazing and I loved going to the volcano and blue lagoons. The rooms were good and the pool was nice. Food good and not very far from the airport and other activities. I recommend this place and I had a amazing time. Ashlee age 10 Visited July 2014

my wife and I spent 3 nights at White grass. Loved the resort and service, Wayne made us feel very welcome. He took a couple of us on a great scuba dive at blue hole number 2. Volcanoe trip was fantastic,2hrs to get there after visiting a little village. The show put on at dusk by the volcanoe was brilliant... More

We had a fabulous time at White Grass Ocean. Perfect weather and a wonderful view from our room. We did the volcano tour and were completely blown away. This was the highlight of our time in Vanuatu! We were met at check in by the manager and had drinks with the owner. What more could you ask for? We had... More

We had the most amazing four days at White Grass Ocean Resort. Wayne and Sabine could not have been more helpful. The snorkeling was amazing – best we have ever seen and we enjoyed all the tours organised for us in particular the volcano and the Kustom Village which was a very humbling experience (as were the roads). We enjoyed... More

We originally booked for four nights but ended up staying an extra night because we enjoyed our time so much. Wayne (manager) is great and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. All of the staff are also fantastic, especially Phillip who is so very interesting and likes to share a lot of information about... More

We only had the chance to stay one night on White Grass resort but it was absolutely fabulous. Wayne was an amazing host and made sure to take some time to tell us all about Tanna itself (a cracking island btw). The facilities at White Grass are fantastic...great restaurant, swimming pools and amazing snorkelling a short walk away, not to... More

We spent three nights at White Grass Ocean Resort. While we appreciate that Tanna is an under-developed island, this was our least favourite accommodation of the four places we stayed at during our trip around Vanuatu. First, the positives: - The customer service prior to our stay was very good. Our flights were changed by the airline after we had... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights in January. The location is brilliant, the food is great, and Wayne, Sabine and the rest of the staff make this place the ideal location to get away from it all and relax - thanks everybody!! Make sure that if you are staying here you take the tour to Mt Yasur... More

Only stayed here one night (purely to see the volcano), but loved it. Great location. Great ocean views. Friendly staff. Nice food. They provided mosquito nets and coils in the rooms which was good. The volcano tour the resort organized for us was fantastic. Lots of fun 4 wheel driving through the ash plains and seeing the mini eruptions on... More

After the flight from Vila (safety briefing?) and the open truck that picks you up from the airport (seat belts?), you realise that Tanna is no ordinary destination! Tanna itself is distinctly third World but the White Grass Resort has all the comforts and facilities you could want. The garden setting overlooking the ocean was excellent. Wayne may not be...
