A nice clean place to stay whilst visiting Tanna island. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wayne gave us personal attention and made it special. I liked the island Bure style rooms. Suited the location.

With beautiful manicured gardens, a stupendous view, lovely bungalows and good food, white grass is a lovely place to stay in Tanna. We were supposed to stay 2 nights, but thanks to flight cancellations, had a third unexpected night, and we were not distressed about this! The food was great (although was disappointed to miss out on lobsters) and service... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a side trip to Tanna to see Mount Yasur. It was all booked through Air Taxi so we didn't really look at the rooms before we left. We were not disappointed though. The room we had was lovely with a unimpeded view of the ocean. The owner was friendly and with... More

Thank you for your wonderful review. Although Mt Yasur Volcano is a must see for everyone visiting Tanna Island, there is lots more to see & do, & we always recommend a minimum 2 full days to enjoy what is on offer. Our snorkeling safari to see the Turtles at Turtle reed never fails to impress,as does the inshore snorkeling... More

Other guests we met here were jealous of the fact we were spending 6 nights at White Grass. Wayne and Simone made us very welcome and we took advantage of the many activities. Great food and sensational sunsets to enjoy a few drinks. The trip to the volcano is a must do as is the cultural village. Great time at... More

The combination of gorgeous scenery and excellent Tanna excursions made for an enjoyable 2-night stay at White Grass earlier this month as part of our honeymoon. The bar/restaurant area was particularly nice with a daily changing menu and there were lots of activities to do around the resort with equipment available to borrow free of charge. We did find that... More

This place is really excellent. All acommodation is in well appointed bures close to the beach. High quality meals are available in the restaurant, and a full breakfast is included in the tariff. The only quaint thing about this facility was the "bus??" that they picked us up from the airport with. What a hoot (see photo). Everything that they... More

We spent a week at the resort, although resort is not the best way to describe it. It is like a very small select village. The bungalows were built in a local style and had everything we needed. They are set in beautiful gardens, well maintained by friendly local staff. The restaurant is the hub of the resort and provides... More

We fell in love with this hotel in the first minute we saw it. Simply everything was perfect. The nature around resort was absolutely stunning. Resort is quite big but with a few bungalows, so there can never be crowdy and all guests has as much privacy as they need. Bungalow arebig and clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly....
