This resort scored big on all points. The grounds are beautifully maintained and offer spectacular vieuws on the ocean. We could see the ocean right from the doorstep of our bure, through the palmtrees and sculptures in the garden. We were welcomed with a refreshing drink and the owner of the hotel came to introduce himself and the staff. He... More

Had a four night stay here late November. About a 5 minute drive from the airport. Upon arriving you are made to feel comfortable straight away. We had cabin number 1 for the first night and although it was very comfortable and the closest to the main building we found it too noisy as the staff all arrive very early... More

First off, the location near the airport is a big plus given the conditions of Tanna's roads, you will be happy for the quick transfer. The tour desk offers a great range of activities from the must-do Volcano tour, to water activities and cultural tours and is a big bonus. The accommodations are clean, spacious and comfortable. The on-site food... More

Tanna Island is basic & isolated, which is attractive. The resort is hard to rate due to the fact we enjoyed our 3 nights there but it is not luxury, although the prices suggest it should be! Our bungalow (stand alone which is good) was very small with an uncomfortable squeaky bed. The dining room offers a good choice of... More

We had an incredibly relaxing, and fun time at White Grass. From the moment we arrived we knew we'd come across a special place. The White Grass team are a group of beautiful, and happy people who act like a close-knit family and made us feel very welcome. We were lucky to meet the owner John, who projected a calm... More

We stayed 5 nights at White Grass and really loved it all. The restaurant is great (see my separate review for it, if you like.) Probably some of the best food we've eaten on holidays. Free wi-fi in the reception area and restaurant. Wayne and Sabine were friendly, relaxed hosts and the staff were really lovely. All smiles and great... More

This was our third stay at White Grass after 3 nights in 2008 and 2013. Even though we had been twice before we booked 5 nights on this trip because the place is just so special. People coming on an overnight trip just for the volcano are really missing out on the whole experience of Tanna and White Grass. There... More

We had a great stay with the crew at this resort, other reviews suggest high prices etc however I think that you need to consider the remoteness of where you are. We did not find White Grass over priced at all. We also found an owner who really cares about his staff, staff that really care about the owner but... More

Great little huts, nice clean pool and nice restaurant. Only gripe was the prices- food and accommodation was way overpriced.The tours we went on were great, and the guides from Whitegrass were fabulous.
