WGOR is the only real choice for the discerning visitor. Landing at TAH, we were transported the 5 minutes to the resort on open air seating on the back of a 4wd. Arriving at the resort we were greeted by the managers Sabine and Wayne and offered a delicious tropical punch. Our bure, one of approx. 18 was available immediately.... More

We had six nights at White Grass and found it an excellent introduction to Vanuatu. The Volcano trip was a highlight and we as an older couple and another older couple were really well looked after. My husband was practically dragged up to the crater edge as he was very stiff after the bumpy ride. He was then helped right... More

Of the three remaining resorts on Tanna after Cyclone Pam, White Grass Ocean Resort is the most upscale and beautiful. It's located within a 10 minute walk to Blue Hole #1 and #2 for short snorkels and you can snorkel with turtles right of it's pier. If you want to visit the spectacular Blue Cave, just go down to Blue... More

I think that some reviewers are forgetting Tanna is an outer island of a third world resort. This resort is not going to be like a brand name 5 star chain hotel. It is great after a long journey to only have a 5 minute transfer from airport. Bures were not luxurious but clean and comfortable with good mosquito net,... More

We spent 5 nights at White Grass and it was great. Many other tourists we spoke to were surprised we decided to stay so long on Tanna but I know many left wishing they were staying longer too! So many positives…. the staff were accommodating and friendly, the variety and quality of the tours offered was fantastic, the food was... More

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
