My trip and time to Wananavu was an adventurous trip by myself to attend a writing retreat on the premises for a week. I arrived two days prior to just enjoy Fiji and my beachfront bure was absolutely perfect! I fell in love with this location and all the beautiful surroundings immediately! The grounds are immaculate, the bure's cozy, comfortable...

The service at this resort is what sets it apart from all the others. It is truly an warm place where you feel like part of the family. Our son doesn't stop talking about the real Fiji Wananavu. We have been twice and can't wait to return again.

Wananavu Beach Resort is the most wonderful Fiji destination wedding venue! We married at Wananavu in late October and it was the most charismatic and fabulous event. Keleni and I were in contact for approx 12 months leading up to our wedding, she was amazingly tolerant of my 1001 questions! Our wedding group consisted of 50 guests and all were...

Arrived in December from Sydney, first impression small piece of paradise. The dive operation run by Vicky and Chris was great they knew exactly how to sort things out arranging everything from start to finish. The rooms were beginning to look a bit dated and I was a bit disappointed with the grounds, thought there could be more colour. The...

We stayed at Wananavu before and after a dive cruise on the Fiji Siren. It was a great way to unwind before the trip started. The room was lovely and very private. All the staff were very attentive, particularly in the bar and restaurant.

We could not have asked for a better experience. Beautiful surroundings, amazing staff and just so relaxing. The food is tasty and creative, and the cocktails pack a punch! Even though we don't dive, we found the snorkeling to be incredible, and the beach picnic is a must. Highly recommend this gorgeous spot.

We rarely, if ever, return to the same location; we believe the world is too big with too much to experience. Wananavu Beach Resort will be an exception to that rule! Our beachfront bure (#6) was truly beachfront. While the bure was starting to age a tad, it didn't detract from its pleasantness. The shower with the outer wall of...

Heaven on Earth! You experience the real Fiji and not just another typical resort. My husband and I returned recently from our second visit in 12 months.
