Resort is a five star PADI dive resort, but don't let that put you off. We came here so my wife could complete her open water certification and had an amazing time, staff are amazing, a real family vibe. Resort is very well maintained, food is excellent with a fixed menu and daily specials. Room was amazing (honeymoon suite although...

We had such a wonderful time in Wananvu! We stayed in one of the Honeymoon Bures - how could we go wrong with our own private pool with such an amazing view! All the staff were always so friendly and happy and they learnt our names and felt like family! We spent so much time down in the restaurant/bar area,...

We stayed here for 5 days and loved every minute! The resort and area is like Hawaii must have been 75 years ago. It's so peaceful and gorgeous! The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We snorkeled in the cove although we wish we had gone on the snorkeling trip others really liked. My husband went fishing and the...

Have stayed at Wananavu twice and have loved it both times. It's great to have a place where our large extended family (20+ people) can stay where there's something for everyone to do, get quiet time when we need it, and still have space to meet up for happy hour and dinner. The rooms are a great balance of traditional...

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...

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...

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.

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...
