We came for the snorkeling and did it at least twice a day. A short walk from your bure along the jetty takes you to the start of the snorkeling along the edge of the island reef. The free turtle trip was well worth it and the guides know where to find your favorite fish if you ask. The local...

We stayed for three nights at this resort with our two kids. The trip from the airport in the open ute terrified one child but made the rest of us feel like we were on a huge adventure! Our main reason for visiting Tanna was the volcano and we hadn't appreciated how much there was to see around Tanna, we...

The resort is well set out with lots of individual space to escape to and relax, nice bures with hot showers and lovely views, and a friendly relaxed restaurant with fabulous food. Lots of tours on offer, which were well...

This is a beautiful, established property with great gardens and plenty of places to sit/lie and take in the views. The new management team are very friendly and the local staff are helpful and nothing seems too much trouble. The main facilities (restaurant/bar) are nicely "island themed" with plenty of seating with good views of the sunset. The menu is...

We stayed four nights at White Grass Ocean Resort. The resort is paradise on an island otherwise covered by jungle and undeveloped. The managers and staff are very friendly and we felt at home throughout our stay. Our primary reason for going to Tanna was to see the volcano. We took the resort's tour and it was great - we...

We stayed here as part of a trip to both Port Vila and the island of tanna where we went to see the Volcano (brillian!!). This is a simple resort but well located near the airport, lovely staff, little pool and clean but basic fares. Lovely little restaurant with a small but nice menu. Good place to be based for...

You get your own little chalet which is comfortable, the restaurant and bar has a great view. Every meal we had from breakfast through lunch to dinner was good..and even French wine....

We stayed at White Grass Ocean Resort on Tanna in July, 2013 for three nights. It is an attractive boutique resort in a fabulous location, only 5 minutes from the airport on Tanna. The views over the ocean from the restaurant are wonderful, and you can sit outside and have a drink or read and soak up the sunset. Our...

I stayed at Tanna Island over Xmas of 2012 - the Managers at that time were incredible - lovely, professional and couldn't do enough for the customers. The entire experience was amazing. New Managers have obviously taken over and I was contacted by them a couple of months ago stating my bill was never paid. The bill was paid in...

Management response:

We are sorry to read this. There is an outstanding matter whereby funds have not been received by the resort’s bank. Professional and courteous requests to provide a reference number, relating to an overseas Telegraphic Transfer, have unfortunately still not been met by this past guest.

This is the second time we have stayed at White Grass, but this time I returned with my family. We still loved White Grass and my family also thought it was great.
