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

Couple spent 3 nights in June. Certainly very classy and beautiful and also pretty expensive - but no regrets. Rooms are really comfortable and well maintained. Excellent service the whole time. 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

We booked a 2 night stay so we could visit the volcano. The Resort is a short ride from the airport, facing west so we enjoyed a beautiful sunset on our first night. The bungalows are clean & spacious. There are plenty of areas to have some space to yourself in the lovely manicured gardens. There is plenty to do,... More

White Grass is a beautiful resort nestled amongst swaying coconut palms and immaculately manicured tropical flower gardens. The Anglo/French hosts were welcoming and attentive without being intrusive and even surprised me with free French lessons. The food was amazing and I loved the French influence that expertly combined seafood/steaks with Continental flair. The rooms are well appointed and the range... More

We had room 1 which seemed to be bigger than the other rooms. We were so comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing time there. The food was good but not great and quite expensive. We went next door to Evergreen resort where we enjoyed the local organic beef and seafood. We enjoyed the free swim with turtles excursion and although... More

We stayed at this resort in May 2014 for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The managers Jean-Francois and Nicola and the local resort staff were wonderful and made it a very pleasant experience. The resort is located right next to the ocean, set in very beautiful and well maintained grounds and every bungalow has amazing views of the ocean.... More

My wife & I recently stayed at this resort on Tanna Island, Vanuatu and were pretty disappointed in the experience. It started with a boring & long winded introductory speech by one of the staff when all we wanted was to get to our rooms after a full days travel to get there. The bungalow or fare as they call...
