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...

My partner and I spent 3 night at White Grass after staying 5 in Port Villa. Visitng Tanna and White Grass has got to be one of the best experiences of our lives. The plane ride from Port Villa, the drive from the airpiort to the hotel and the greeting we received on arrival was all fantastic. Being a hospitality... More

If you are going to Tanna you must stay here, the service and location is 10/10. We had 11 in our group including 3 little people and we could not ask to be looked after any better. The bungalows were very clean and had everything you could want. The seafood was fresh every day and it was caught out the... More

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
