Gorgeous resort. Loved the pool, the cove, the informational talks and demonstrations about Fijian life. Really good food (though frankly too much of it!). Very friendly and helpful staff - especially Jo! The resort doesn't claim to be wheelchair accessible - and it's not! The paved ramp paths are very, very steep. The bure we were in had three steps...

I agree with the term Peaceful. We booked with Wananavu Dive Resort in order to scuba dive for five days in Bligh Waters. We found this resort through Trip Advisor, and it turned out to be a wonderful resort. The bure on the Beach was delightful. We loved the hammock in front of the bure!The balcony dining was so romantic...

Right from the start we were impressed by the service and friendliness of staff. Having spent the last few weeks travelling, we thought that this resort was great value for money, including the meals and drinks which were reasonably priced (and we ate at the restaurant for every meal whilst there). We all loved spending time in the pool and...

This resort is very run down with little to do unless you are a diver. Very little work was being done around the resort and the pool bottom and sides were covered in a thick green mould which was slimy underfoot. there was little pool furniture and what there was had seen better days. The rooms were dirty and neglected...

My husband and I celebrated our 1st year anniversary at Wananavu, and had a wonderful and peaceful stay. The hotel is located about 2.5 hours away from the international airport which allows guests to enjoy some quite/peaceful time away from the the city. The resort is relatively small after a day or two of staying there everyone knows you by...

We stayed at Wananavu Beach Resort for our honeymoon, and it was perfect! The resort was about 2.5 to 3-hour van ride from Nadi Airport, so not too far but enough distance to get away from the hustle and bustle. The drivers who drove us from the airport and back to the airport were both very nice. In fact, everybody...

We stayed here for 1 week and had a fantastic experience. The region is quite and beautiful. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. They picked us up from the airport for no charge because we were staying over 5 days, our driver was lovely, even offered us some local snacks and told us a bit about the region during...

We stayed here as part of our 20th anniversary celebration. We arrived a couple of months after Cyclone Winston came through so understandably we were concerned about the people and the resort. Though they were limited on what they could do, they were able to respond to emails and update their Facebook account to say that everyone was ok and...

We stayed at Wananavu for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it!! The staff were wonderful, the food more than enough and our bure was great. We wanted a holiday where we could relax and Wananavu had the perfect balance. One of the days we had a picnic and went snorkeling at the island across the way and were provided with...

We flew up from New Zealand for a father & son weekend of diving. The resort and dive operation were excellent - exactly what we were looking for in a boys weekend of diving.
