This review goes right along with several other here: I wish I could give this place a better rating, but 3/5 is already too high. I would say 2.5/5 would be more accurate. The pros: THE VILLA! I was here for my best friend's wedding and we took up the entire hotel. a small group of us booked the Villa... More

We stayed here Sept 28.2013 through Oct 5, 2013. I am giving this place high ratings only because of the dive shop. The dive shop gives you "Princess Diving". Vicky and Chris along with their crew - Mere Sweet and the Wananavu Dive Boys were outstanding. They took care of everything. We only had to be concerned about putting our... More

This is a tough one. I hate when people write reviews just to complain and I don't want to be that person. Wananavu should work and has massive potential - but it doesn't hit the mark. There are parts people are going to like and parts people are going to hate and these are just my opinions. A lot of... More

When we stayed at the Dreamview villas we visited the Wananavu Beach Resort and this is another place in Raki raki worth staying. We loved the beach and the view is magnificent. Just "magic". After spending time in Wananavu I get the feeling that this place will one day be the highlight of Vitilevu. Just home hope it is not... More

Such a superb spot and with wonderful attentive staff. We stayed in a honeymoon Bure that had its own plunge pool and views across the ocean to several islands. The gardens were very tidy and the ground staff always had a friendly smile as we walked by. It is on the side of a hill so people who are not... More

All of my expectations were either met or exceeded. Having dived several other places I can honestly say this was by far the best dive experience of my life. I don't know where to begin. My decision to come here was based on the reviews and easy access. It is very frustrating trying to plan a trip when you have... More

Our 4 night stay achieved what we came here for - to relax. An oceanfront bure is a must if you intend to do absolutely nothing but sit, read & look at the sea. Not a luxury resort but not budget either. Food is OK. The no frills beauty spa is good value. We liked the friendly feel of the... More

The staff at Wananavu were very welcoming, calm and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the curry of the day in the restaurant. My husband and I were upgraded to a beach front bure and it was gorgeous. I recommend kayaking out to some of the islands after a nice, long breakfast. Try the casava chips!

After a late flight arrival we arrived at Wananavu just as the sun was about to rise. We were helped with our bags to the beautiful honeymoon bure where we dumped our bags grabbed a beer and watched the sun come up together. It was the perfect start to a perfect 5 days. The staff were incredible and the location... More
