“Deep South Scuba Group”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

In June of 2014 12 divers from Mississippi traveled to Wananavu Beach Resort and we had 9 glorious days with 13 dives. The Last dive was the Cat's Meow and it was like diving in an overcrowded exotic fish aquarium with the most beautiful soft coral. The Dive Staff was the very best. So friendly and just fit in with us perfectly. Plus they took our gear the first day and rinsed it everyday and it was dry and delivered to our room on our departure day. The food was wonderful and plentiful and the staff was so delightful. I have never seen such friendly people. And our burres were so comfortable with wood floors and very private. We never had to turn on our air conditioner and slept with the windows open. There were screens on the windows and a screen door and what a beautiful view we woke up to every morning. We were spoiled. I would go back tomorrow.

Room Tip: We had a beach front room and the view was spectacular and right on the beach. I would also recomme...

This is a great resort, the road leading to the resort is unsealed so a bit of a rough ride for 3 to 5 kms. They offered complimentary drinks on arrival and the rooms were neat and tidy. There were no telephones and TV in the room so guests could indulge in relaxation. The staff and service was exceptional.

Our group of 12 divers stayed in June 2014. The Staff was wonderful. As a dive group, our gear was taken care of by the Dive Team all week. They collected our dive gear from our rooms when we arrived and rinsed and dried it everyday. We had 6 days of 2 tank boat dives. We all used the on-site Nitrox. We saw some amazing coral and fishes on every dive.
The resort had breathtaking views from every angle. I never tired of the view from my bure and we took some wonderful sunrise and sunset photos. I kept my windows and doors open every day and night to enjoy the natural breezes. It was 80F every day and 70F every night.
The live music was great every lunch and dinner.
I can't say enough about how much we all enjoyed our trip. I highly recommend this destination for any group.

From 14thJuly to 21st July 2014. Our family who range in age from 8 months to 82 years stayed at Wananavu for 7 days for our daughter’s wedding. The resort was awesome, the staff were so friendly and very welcoming, nothing was ever a problem and the service was simply amazing!
The staff were fantastic with the kids; especially at meal times taking care of the little ones so their parents could eat their meals and there was never an issue with anything the kids wanted. The food was divine every meal was awesome with plenty of choices.
The wedding was out of this world! The team at Wananavu certainly went the extra mile to make sure the day was perfect for our daughter and her husband. All the guests were very impressed, the fire dancers, the fireworks, lead in by warriors, the food and all the seafood for the wedding was incredible we have never been to a wedding like it. To say it was amazing doesn’t even come close, it was something special we will all treasure forever.
As parents of the bride, we would be more than happy to recommend Wananavu to anyone thinking of getting married there. It was such a great experience, the place was absolutely beautiful and the staff made it even more special. We were sad to leave and would love to visit again.

We've been to many resorts on Viti Levu and Wananavu now ranks at the top for us. Delicious food, variety of activities, natural Fijian beauty and the excellent customer service shown through the friendly interaction with the staff is what sets it apart from the rest. We hope to visit again in the near future.

Nice views to wake up to every morning, great meals had choice of breakfast on display for your choice, we had a 2 course lunch and 3 course tea if you wanted it with local band playing The staff were very nice and very helpful, free talks and other things to do at the resort and very well priced tours running from the resort. When we were there you could also hire the mini bus for shopping trip to the nice little friendly town. Thanks Rebecca 7/2012 should be the date only just got trip advisor
