I am a bit torn in writing this review. First the good: The location is gorgeous, the rooms really nice and comfy and the local Fijian staff absolutely delightful. I couldn't fault them for anything. Always helpful and smiling. And the diving out here with Dive Wananavu, the local dive operation, is great. The food is a bit boring. Not...

Vinaka for taking the time to appreciate the resort in its location, the friendly local staff and the dive operation in your review. However, this review is not accurate on some levels and since you have chosen to express your experience here on this platform we must respond accordingly.

The location is fantastic, we stayed in a beach front room and we could hear the sound of the sea. The resort is perfectly integrated in the natural environment and you are surrounded by coconut trees and wonderful flowers. The best thing is the staff, they are so caring and welcoming that you feel like home from the first minute....

I was here for a week with a large group. We did not dive with the staff of Wananavu, but did with another group who came to get us there at the resort. Our group was too large for just their one boat. It was a good week, the land excursions to the villages are a MUST do! They will...

Very remote .. almost impossible to find had it not been for the large sign board on the highway ( almost all of Viti Lavu - Fiji has a two lane highway running along the coast) indicating the turn we would have missed it ... a few kilometres over un metalled road and you get there .

4-star resort run and staffed by 5-star people. Beautiful grounds, sweet bures, and a bar/restaurant I had to tear myself away from. Can't express how lovely a time we had doing pretty much nothing but swimming, eating and lazing. Even our solo 12 year old loved it.

Our stay at Wananavu was fantastic. From the moment you walk into the resort, you feel like you're at your home away from home. I booked a Garden View Bure, however, when we checked in we got told that we would be staying in one of the Beach Front Bure's (no complaints here). The view from the our room was...
