Last year we stayed 4 nights & enjoyed it so much we went back this year with my brother & his wife for 7 nights.There is much more to this place than a visit to the volcano,which is an unforgettable highlight & should not be missed. Nicola & Jean-Francois are excellent managers & nothing is too much trouble.They have made... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our first visit to Vanuatu and then had 5 nights in Port Vila. The time at White Grass went very quickly and we wished we had an extra night there. Nicola and John Francois were friendly, efficient and likeable hosts. It is a small resort with only 14 ocean front bures but everything... More

Stayed two nights and wish we had much longer. A wonderfully peaceful and private location with just 14 bungalows (perhaps half of which were occupied during our stay). The welcome and introduction on arrival made us feel right at home and the staff were always friendly and easy to deal with. We mainly visited for the Yasur volcano tour (fantastic),... More

Tanna Island is an amazing place to visit. We came for my 50th birthday and to see Mt Yasur. The accommodation, food and atmosphere were fantastic. The people so natural, welcoming and friendly. Walking on an active volcano is life changing. This was my first trip overseas and it couldn't have been better.

We recently had a family holiday in at the White Grass Ocean Resort. We were very well looked after by Jean-Francois, Nicola and their staff. They went above and beyond to accommodate our requests and to help make our holiday special. I cannot speak highly enough for the hotel staff and managers. The food was lovely (bread was fantastic) and... More

We would never have gone to Tanna Island and White Grass Ocean Resort if it had not been for our niece's wedding. WGOR is tranquil, small, peaceful and pictureseque. The staff and management were extremely helpful and di all they could to make our stay (and the wedding) as enjoyable as possible. Other than the wedding the highlight was a... More

White Grass Ocean resort was probably the best place we stayed in Vanuatu. Come to think of it Tanna island was probably the best part of our Vanuatu tip aswell. The resort grounds were lovely and well maintained. The beach bungalows were satisfactory couldnt complain although the toilet in our bathroom was in a very weird spot! We had the... More

Just spectacular scenery and views throughout the resort - coconut trees, palm trees, sun, water everything. Postcard like. Great photo memories now. Nice to be able wander around and... More

We came to Tanna as a large family group and booked out five of the bungalows. It was our second time here and the first for the rest of the family. We just love staying here. The staff are just lovely and make you feel so welcome and at home. The restaurant had been completed since we had been last... More
