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

If you are wanting an authentic fijian experience that delivers a complete getaway in every sense but with activities like world class diving excellent fishing or bare back horse riding on the beach then Wananavu is where should go.Just amazing.

We stayed at Wananavu after getting a great rate through wotif for 5 nights. When I booked I noted that the week prior to us staying was fully booked out and the week after we left was fully booked yet the week we were staying seemed to have lots of availability in all room types. From the tripadvisor reviews and... More

Although more and more people are starting to find this place it is still an amazing place. When you get into Ra and see the red dirt you it never fails to get the heart pumping...even after dodging traffic and huge pot holes.

Very peaceful and idyllic siting away from the hustle and bustle of other better known resorts but the service is excellent from the staff. One of the most picturesque places anywhere in the world with great peace. Only things that could improve the place are alacarte menu for vegetarians which were promised to us when we booked but not delivered... More

we arrived in Fiji the day after Tropical Cyclone Trevor. Rakiraki was the first and hardest hit and when we landed there were no phones, electricity or water in most of the country. We were unable to call ahead to the Resort to make sure it was still standing. FJD200 paid for a taxi from the airport, which harrowingly navigated... More

This hotel was recommended to us by our Travel Agent in the UK & we're glad we went. As it was our 10th anniversary, we decided to go for a oceanview honeymoon bure which was superbly positioned on the hillside just above the main resort, with a one minute walk down hill to reception & the restaurant. The honeymoon bure... More

Wananavu is simply amazing! Highly recommend to anyone! We went in January and will be returning once again in July for our wedding. All of the staff are fabulous and caring.

We recently stayed at a holiday house nearby to Wananavu Beach Resort. The resort welcomes guests staying nearby also. It was our plan to cook and eat at the house we had rented, BUT once we had wandered through Wananavu and experienced our initial dinner - we didn't look back!! We were there daily enjoying sunset cocktails and the absolutely... More
