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....

I can't fault this resort. Clean and well maintained. Friendly and helpful service. Small, quiet and personal. Great food with a menu that varied every day. Enjoyed happy hour each evening (maybe a bit too much!). The resort offers well organised trips to all the points of interest on Tanna. They made our trip to Tanna easy and enjoyable. Would... More

We were met at the airport by the Resort Manager and driven to the resort. Our Ocean View Bungalow was picture perfect. Every night we slept to the sound of the ocean breaking on to the... More

White Grass Resort and Tanna Island were the last destination on our 25th wedding anniversary. We were very pleasantly surprised with our room. The view from our room was unobstructed view of the Pacific ocean and surrounded by palm trees. The resort was actually very small and quaint which is what we were looking for. The restaurant has minimal offerings,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. The view from the restaurant was stunning, looking out across the most fantastically coloured bougainvilleas to the blue, blue ocean. I even saw a whale pass by one morning! The gardens were outstanding with several spots above the cliffs set up with chairs to relax in, as well as a hammock under a thatched... More

When reading these reviews keep in mind the dates they were written. White Grass is a friendly, very classy yet comfortable paradise!! In a location which is unspoiled by western ways. Keeping true to their traditions and culture Tanna island offers a unique opportunity to visit with people who are honest and true to their culture. Many are hunters and... More

This is a hotel for those people who don't like to rough it in Tanna and accordingly the prices reflect this. The service is very good as is the food. The rooms are clean. The gardens are beautiful. It is however very different to the rest of the island - you are in a rich cocoon when you stay here... More

Thank you very much for your feedback and also for staying with us. We do encourage our guests to explore the island as Tanna has so much more to offer than the volcano. Nevertheless this is of course the highlight for a lot of people. To experience an insight into the rich cultures and traditions of the Tanna people we... More
