Stunningly beautiful. Comfortable, VG personal care from the owners. Great snorkelling Blue Hole 2. Go with Jim, magic++. Good food and nice people. Enjoyed the pool and walks nearby. Wished we had stayed longer. Visited June 2015

We arrived on Tanna Island having pre-booked our stay at this resort which is rated the number 1 on the island. We were met by the owners and our luggage was placed in the transport and we were driven the 5 minutes it took to get to the resort. We arrived and were asked to wait outside the reception/dining area... More

We arrived at Tanna after catching two planes from Santo to Vila then Vila to Tanna. We were picked up from airport with another two families. We stayed for 3 night and travelled as 2 adults and a 7 year old child. Once at the resort we were asked to sit at reception and complete paperwork. Not just one form... More

The bures are gorgeous. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is great. There is a happy hour every night. There are so many fabulous trips and excursions you can go on in Tanna. You can also do lots of activities for free. Snorkeling in the blue pools would have to be a highlight. Make sure you stay... More

We have just returned from three nights at White Grass Resort, on Tanna, at the end of a two week holiday. White Grass is such a pretty place, it's hard to imagine that it looked better before the cyclone. Our main reason for the stay was to check out the volcano, and we weren't disappointed! We snorkelled the reef, but... More

We recently spent 5 nights with our 9 and 6 year old children at the White Grass Ocean resort. There was limited wifi & no TV which meant our family enjoyed some quality time together. The resort was clean with all facilities running which is credit to their hard work after the cyclone earlier this year. The kids really enjoyed... More

Had a great time checking out White Grass. Free Wi-Fi at reception (but don't rely on it - remember where you are - its a perk!), clean bungalows with comfortable beds (slept like a stone), fans and sea views. We tested out their dive sites, and apart from going the wrong way home to shore, found some lovely clear water... More

My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We ended up changing our accomodation to White Grass after Cyclone Pam destroyed our already booked accom. Even with the late notice they were more than accomodating to our large group. We are thankful that we ended up staying as it would have been a shame to miss. Fantastic accomodation. The... More

Tanna was badly hit by the cyclone but White Grass is up and running beautifully. All the activities there are operating and our accommodation was extremely comfortable. We booked through them to go to Mt Yasar, the volcano and we had a great driver and guide. Go for it!!!

Flew in with Unity Airlines for the volcano tour. Amazing resort - beautiful location, excellent food and drink and comfortable lodgings. Left wanting to stay more, will definitely back. The volcano tour was definitely worth it - would love to do that again too!
