We spent 9 nights at White Grass and loved it. The snorkelling is excellent, it's close to the airport and other snorkelling places. They can organise anything you want to do on Tanna as well. The local staff were really lovely people and the food was great - restaurant quality food and wine always. Good coffee !

We stayed 2 nights at this gorgeous resort. Such a friendly and welcoming greeting & cool drink on arrival. Our bure had a beautiful ocean view & was clean with everything we needed. There is plenty of activities or take a break on one if the many deck chairs around & soak up the peace & quiet & amazing views....

Beautiful, beautiful and beautiful. Stunning location, stunning accomodation and eating areas. Nothing was a problem, food was excellent, information about activities was excellent. Free Wiifi a nice touch. Great place to recharge and forget the worries of the world. Loved the coconut products provided in the bathrooms.

This place is beautiful. Crazy beautiful. We stayed 3 nights at this place and I could have stayed forever. White Grass is a short 15 minute ride from the airport. It's a lovely sprawling coastal property with fewer than 20 bungalows, a combined reception and dining area, a swimming pool, beach access, mini golf course, grass tennis court and a...

We travelled to Tanna Island to do a recce for a Rotary Project - repairs to schools and the hospital that were damaged by Cyclone Pam. The resort is close to the airport from where we were picked up and later delivered. One must remember that the island is a fair distance from the capital, Port Vila, hence the cost...

We stayed four nights and it was fantastic. The grounds and views are so pretty, and all the staff were wonderful. What really made the trip spectacular was the complimentary turtle snorkel tour. Two guides each in a kayak guide you out to turtle reef, which as the name suggests, is a place where turtles hang out. I can assure...

The White Grass Resort was very pleasant, but we were barely there long enough to notice! We did the overnight volcano tour from Pt. Vila. On the tour, you land at Tanna Island, get a quick truck ride to the hotel, have just enough time to drop your bags, change your shoes, and order your dinner, then you're off to...

Whitegrass is very well located minutes from the airport and overlooking the sea. Comfortable well maintained huts with good beds and plenty of hot water. The location is really good with several small headlands furnished to enjoy a sundowner. Australian owned and priced accordingly but this does seem to be the best on tanna. The snorkelling to see the turtles...

White Grass Ocean Resort is located on a bluff overlooking the ocean, consequently the view is stunning. The central area of the property houses the restaurant, bar, office and sitting area. It is exceptionally comfortable & welcoming & again the views are awesome. The staff are friendly and efficient, and are very happy to help organise tours and outings as...
