As a travel agent i inspected all the resorts/hotels on tanna island and hands down this was the best out of them all. Cosy and stunning grounds and views of the ocean. This resort has a very natural feel to it, its not like other resorts that are modern and up to date, this is very natural and picturesque. Right... More

You know as soon as you get in the back of the ute (outside) for the 5 minute drive from the airport that this is going to be a very laid back holiday. Greeted by a refreshing drink and the manager, Wayne, we were then given a run down on what is available which makes you feel quite welcome. It... More

I travel to Tanna for the first time with a group of friends to stay at White Grass Ocean Resort for 4 days. I was not really sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised! The place is gorgeous with a nice island style restaurant serving excellent food including fresh lobsters (I saw them live the morning I... More

Very relaxing place to stay. We stayed there for nearly 4 days. Accommodation was good, comfortable but could do with a bit of an upgrade. The staff & managers were excellent, extremely friendly & helpful. The restaurant served really nice food. Plenty to do, diving, scuba, walking etc. Went on the Volcano trip, terrible roads, but the drivers are excellent,... More

Going to a remote Vanuatu island you prepare to expect a bit less but not so! Our group experienced 4 days of fantastic fun, good food (especially the seafood) and lots of adventure. As we had all been to Tanna and experienced the awesome Yasur previously, we opted to try other attractions and 4 days wasn't enough! World class scuba... More

When going to the islands from Port Vila we are used to take some provisions with us (Alcoholic beverages-crackers sweeties etc, to balance the normally monotonous magnoc diet on the islands) Surprise surprise this time.. Not only was the food excellent, (local produce but made with a sophisticated hand) but also plenty of alcohol, wine beer whiskey you name it.... More

We loved our short visit to Tanna. Despite the very popular attration of the volcano it does not have that touristy feel. The resort is great, beautiful gardens with a pool as well as private quiet spots to rest and relax in. The bures are lovely, clean and comfortable. The volcano trip is awesome. Drivers and guides are very knowledgeable.... More

Fantasy Isle is what I thought of as from the resort Staff can watch your plane fly in. Soon you're greeted by a friendly man ready to take you on a fun ride from the airport back to the resort. Our host was waiting to greet us with a fresh fruit drink and a brief intro to the resorts amenities.... More

We spent three days here and had a very quiet, relaxing time in relatively basic, but clean and comfortable, accommodation. The hammock under the tree outside our room was a real winner! We enjoyed the friendly but unobtrusive service from all the staff, and we did a couple of tours and activities that were well run and worthwhile. The trip... More

Thank you for your review. Our tours always offer a selection of different options to see the 'Real' Vanuatu & Tanna. Mt Yusur is a highlight of any trip to Tanna, but there is so much more to see & do here. For those who want to spend some time relaxing in a quiet, comfortable, stress free environment, sitting in... More

Initially upon arrival to hotel the reception was not as welcoming or friendly as i had expected. Accommodation was clean, tidy + comfortable. Obviously this is on an outer island and to be expected is not as touristy therefore not as luxurious but definiately worth the visit for the volcano tour alone + a comfy bed. Only real complaint was... More

Thank you for your review. All our tours strive to offer a wide selection of different aspects of Tanna, for your enjoyment. We are surprised to hear that you went without a shower for 3 days. If it was brought to staff's attention, it would have been remedied. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Whitegrass Ocean Resort, and... More
