We spent 5 nights here and felt that we could have done more. It is away from the ash fall, and perfectly placed on the edge of the coral reef for snorkeling, scuba and tours to the sights of Tanna. The food was exceptional, the staff delightfully friendly, and the facilities perfect for the location. I could not think of... More

My partner and I stayed at white grass last week. Rooms were basic though very clean and well presented. Quite small though as we had to have our suitcase in the walkway at the end of the bed. Didn't worry us too much as we didn't spend much time in the rooms. Our room was ocean view and the view... More

We stayed there for 24 hours on a tour which included an afternoon/dusk tour of Yasur Volcano and traditional dancing and an introduction to the stories behind the volcano and what it meant to the people of Tanna. The actual resort was great. The owner was very welcoming. The food and service were terrific. We were escorted to it to... More

We were greeted warmly and found the setting lovely with a sunset soon after arriving. The food was excellent and the staff lovely. My wife and I did the snorkel tour from the end of the jetty with a staff member showing us the way to the outside reef in a kayak. I'd recommend at least 2 nights to enjoy... More

A very enjoyable stay, the views are simply incredible, the resort itself was beautiful and relaxing, the staff can arrange tours for you and are very proud of their island. The rooms are simple but very well maintained.

It is only 2 km from the island's airport. The bure we stayed in (No 5) is close to the resort's pool and was small,... More

We stayed at White Grass in June 2016 and found it to be a beautiful and relaxing resort. The bungalows were simple but well equipped (very comfortable bed). We found it a great base from which to explore the many natural wonders of Tanna Island - the Volcano tour being a particular highlight. Conveniently, you can organise all your island... More

Stayed at the White Grass Resort for three nights. Fantastic! The setting is beautiful, the grounds are very well kept and the staff are super friendly, but discreet. Lot's of attention to small details make this a must. Had a lovely massage by the shore, food is great. Internet fiends like our family should pick sim cards in Port Vila,... More
