My partner and I just returned from four days/nights at White Grass Ocean Resort on Tanna and we loved it...if only we could have stayed longer!
The accommodation on offer is a series of individual thatched bungalows with ensuites. They are quaint and suitably equipped for a comfortable stay. And the setting is magnificent with lush tropical gardens looking out towards the fringing reef and sea.
Resort facilities include a small pool, bar/restaurant, mini golf, tennis and bocce. The resort also hires out reef shoes, snorkelling gear and bicycles.
The location is suburb! You can grab some reef shoes and check out the fringing reef and rock pools at low tide, or snorkelling gear and head straight out the front onto the most spectacular reef we've ever seen.
White Grass staff are delightful. They keep the resort bungalows and grounds absolutely spotless and top class. The gardens are well set out with plenty of shady hammocks and lounges to escape the hot Vanuatu sun.
The restaurant is fabulous. The menu for each meal is small (maybe three - five different dishes) but the food is delicious and it changes daily so you won't get bored if you're there for a longer stay. Try the organic Vanuatu beef, you will be blown away by how good it is, not to mention fresh lobster and fish every day. The bar has a small selection of Aussie, French and New Zealand wines and champagnes, a range of beers and spirits.
The resort offers at least 12 different tours taking in things like the Mt Yasur volcano, kastom villages, guided snorkelling, fishing, black magic, underwater caves, etc. You won't run out of things to do and the resort staff are very helpful in terms of advice for making the most of your trip.
White Grass is like a little piece of paradise. If you were thinking about going to Tanna, this is the place to stay!
