Our family of four (2A and 2K) had a three night stay. Great place to see turtles (managed to swim with one during our visit) and tropical fish. Snorkelled off the jetty located at the resort and swan out to the reef with a local guide. Plenty of time to see all the fish and coral - no rush at... More

Close from the airport with simple but clean bungalows. Employees are courteous as well as the owners. Restaurant is really good. The hotel proposes some activities among which Mount Yasur - a must - Views on the sea and of course sunset are stupendous

This was our second attempt at coming here after having to cancel last years attempt because of the cyclone. This is a wonderful place with beautifully maintained gardens and grounds, excellent staff, lovely restaurant and bar, and Wayne and Sabine are wonderfully obliging hosts. Loved the fact that there is only 14 Bures so I was expecting a great deal... More

The service was great, the people were very nice. Comfortable little huts. Great place to scuba, the group had some great adventures through the tunnels and caves. Plenty to see as a snorkeler as well. Easy turtle spotting, just got to wait for calm waters. The trip to the volcano is definitely bucket list worthy. Amazing experience.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights, mainly to visit Mt. Yasur, which was something I will remember for the rest of my life. White Grass is a lovely place, with manicured gardens, tennis court, swimming pool, restaurant and access to the ocean if you dare jump off the jetty. The accommodation is not luxurious but it had...

We chose White Grass Ocean Resort because of its proximity to the Tanna airport and because it was reputed to be the best accommodation on the island. We were in Bungalow 3 in one of the best locations, along the front with an uninterrupted view to the ocean and with great sunset views. It was fairly basic though, with little... More

Sabine H, Manager at White Grass Ocean Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Dear Greg-n-Lee, Thank you for your recent stay and review of White Grass Ocean Resort & Spa. Tanna is a very remote island and is still very untouched by tourism. There are no real supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars or wholesalers here and freight from Port Vila is an additonal cost to everything which is already expensive in Port Vila. We... More

We stayed at Whitegrass resort for only one night as part of a tour to the volcano but we wished we had of stayed longer. The resort is beautifully maintained in an amazing location. The owners clearly pay attention to the small details and the restaurant was excellent. If you visit Tanna it is definitely worth staying for a few... More

We just returned to Port Vila after 3 nights at White Grass, and we were so sad to leave! We definitely could've done a week there. The scenery is stunning, the snorkelling is great, the locals are so lovely and friendly and we completely switched off during our stay. We played bocce, rode bikes to Blue Hole 2, saw the... More

We had an amazing time at White Grass. It is a beautiful place with views over the sea and rocks, blue holes to explore and a really cool pool that's right next to the sea. We shared one of the family rooms and it was fine for five of us. We also ate every night at the restaurant which was... More

We have just returned from 3 night at Whitegrass. it was fantastic. The snorkeling was beautiful and easily accessible, no extra paid trip necessary. The trip to see Mt Yasur volcano was amazing. The staff were friendly and very professional, the room was clean and tidy and the restaurant served excellent food. Our only complaint was that We didn't stay... More
