We had an amazing experience at Wananavu! The resort is effortlessly beautiful. Our bure is cozy and clean with an island feel. The lushly green palm and banana trees along with the colorful tropical flowers overlooking the aqua blue water is simply timeless, not to mention the dramatic sunrises and sunsets. We did not have to adjust to this laid...

We came with friends who live in Suva and had visited several times previously. We can see why they keep returning. If you want a restful break in a beautiful setting where the staff make you feel special with the right balance of attention then come here. It's in a more remote part of Viti Levu but still easily accessible...

We've stayed at Wananavu twice now, once 3 years ago and then again this past year with a large group of family and friends. The bures are a little more rustic, which is the perfect intro to Fiji. The staff is super friendly and the resort is on the smaller side which I think it perfect. The location couldn't be...

Overall, the resort is good. Be aware that the road going to the resort from the highway is not made for cars. I drove my rental there and got a flat tire. Make sure your spare has air in it if you are driving. The staff are good and friendly except for the female waitress who was not very professional....

Beauty, hidden gem in fiji! Amazing friendly staff, beautyful location and clean, big rooms. The whole resort is on the beach, white sand with small shallow crystal clear water. Restaurant is first class, best steak ever in Fiji! Plenty of activities, tennis court and Padi diving. Will visit again, for sure! Thank you!

Fiji has yet to grow up food wise. Places like Bali attract because the quality of the food is excellent in many of the resorts. Fiji is much more beautiful and less hectic than Bali, but the food revolution has yet to hit, and it certainly has not hit Wananavu hotel. The location is quite pretty, though not Fiji's best...
