Stayed here in September for 5 nights. Quite remote but an amazing experience! Volcano trip is a must. White grass organise any activities you want to do. Staff were friendly. Happy hour with an amazing view was a highlight. Bungalows were authentic and we really had the island feel on this trip.we will remember this trip forever! Thank you Whitegrass.

We stayed four nights and it was fantastic. The grounds and views are so pretty, and all the staff were wonderful. What really made the trip spectacular was the complimentary turtle snorkel tour. Two guides each in a kayak guide you out to turtle reef, which as the name suggests, is a place where turtles hang out. I can assure...

The White Grass Resort was very pleasant, but we were barely there long enough to notice! We did the overnight volcano tour from Pt. Vila. On the tour, you land at Tanna Island, get a quick truck ride to the hotel, have just enough time to drop your bags, change your shoes, and order your dinner, then you're off to...

Whitegrass is very well located minutes from the airport and overlooking the sea. Comfortable well maintained huts with good beds and plenty of hot water. The location is really good with several small headlands furnished to enjoy a sundowner. Australian owned and priced accordingly but this does seem to be the best on tanna. The snorkelling to see the turtles...

White Grass Ocean Resort is located on a bluff overlooking the ocean, consequently the view is stunning. The central area of the property houses the restaurant, bar, office and sitting area. It is exceptionally comfortable & welcoming & again the views are awesome. The staff are friendly and efficient, and are very happy to help organise tours and outings as...

Whilst the places to stay in Tanna are somewhat limited the Whtite Grass is a great Resort and the staff are wonderful and very proud of where they work and the island that they come from. The resort is very comfortable and the rooms are very good and in good repair.

We came for 2 nights 3 days, mostly for my Yasur, but could have spent longer. Tanna is quite a remarkable place. I definitely recommend this resort if you happen to come to Tanna which you should if you can! The accommodation is nice (though not luxurious by Australian standards). The dining/lounge/deck area is really gorgeous, with an amazing view...

Even though we didn't stay at WGOR, I feel compelled to write them this positive review because of their great quality of service, which is hard to find on Tanna Island. We stayed for 2 nights at neighboring Rocky Ridge bungalows but spent most of our time at WGOR because we liked it there so much! We took their Blue...

The choices on Tanna are limited. It is the island known for Mt Yasur volcano and as can be expected there is volcanic rock everywhere. No real swimming beaches. Reading about it before hand we decided to stay in Tanna for 3 nights. It was absolutely worth it. This resort is a little oasis perched on hills overlooking the South...

It was a beautiful, relaxing and serene hotel. It had everything we needed which is perfect because Tanna is pretty secluded. The staff was great, very helpful even when we had our flights cancelled and had to stay an extra night. The food was delicious and the bike hire was handy when we wanted to explore. Easy pickup for a...
