The resort is extremely well laid out / presented, it is as sympathetic to maintain the local environment as you could possibly get. The rooms are what i would call rustic and some will think I mean basic and simple but they're not, one could argue they are a bit small but the only thing missing was a hairdryer and...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...
