Heavenly location

The food was beautiful. It is reasonably priced and very tasty.. i did not have a bad meal while staying there! The room was clean, and the staff amazing. The Resort is in the most amazing location and the view is just perfect!


Island Magic

Beautiful location on the coast of Tana Island. Tana is still relatively untouched and White Grass is a great base to explore this magical island. Lovely service, good food and a view to die for. Highly recommended!


A lovely, welcoming resort

We were made to feel welcome at the resort from the moment we arrived. The owners/managers and the staff were always friendly, helpful and available. The grounds were lovely and well-maintained. Our bure was on the small side and didn't have much in the way of shelving/storage space, but it was clean and comfortable and had a beautiful outlook over the pool and the sea. The food was excellent and we enjoyed dining at our table by the window, looking out over the ocean. Our trip to the volcano (our main reason for going to Tanna) was amazing. We probably wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer there because the snorkelling is limited and, once we had done the volcano and the village excursion, there wasn't a lot else to do there. But we thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay.
