We came for 2 nights 3 days, mostly for my Yasur, but could have spent longer. Tanna is quite a remarkable place. I definitely recommend this resort if you happen to come to Tanna which you should if you can! The accommodation is nice (though not luxurious by Australian standards). The dining/lounge/deck area is really gorgeous, with an amazing view...

Even though we didn't stay at WGOR, I feel compelled to write them this positive review because of their great quality of service, which is hard to find on Tanna Island. We stayed for 2 nights at neighboring Rocky Ridge bungalows but spent most of our time at WGOR because we liked it there so much! We took their Blue...

The choices on Tanna are limited. It is the island known for Mt Yasur volcano and as can be expected there is volcanic rock everywhere. No real swimming beaches. Reading about it before hand we decided to stay in Tanna for 3 nights. It was absolutely worth it. This resort is a little oasis perched on hills overlooking the South...

It was a beautiful, relaxing and serene hotel. It had everything we needed which is perfect because Tanna is pretty secluded. The staff was great, very helpful even when we had our flights cancelled and had to stay an extra night. The food was delicious and the bike hire was handy when we wanted to explore. Easy pickup for a...

The resort is extremely well laid out / presented, it is as sympathetic to maintain the local environment as you could possibly get. The rooms are what i would call rustic and some will think I mean basic and simple but they're not, one could argue they are a bit small but the only thing missing was a hairdryer and...

We spent 5 nights here and felt that we could have done more. It is away from the ash fall, and perfectly placed on the edge of the coral reef for snorkeling, scuba and tours to the sights of Tanna. The food was exceptional, the staff delightfully friendly, and the facilities perfect for the location. I could not think of...

My partner and I stayed at white grass last week. Rooms were basic though very clean and well presented. Quite small though as we had to have our suitcase in the walkway at the end of the bed. Didn't worry us too much as we didn't spend much time in the rooms. Our room was ocean view and the view...

We stayed there for 24 hours on a tour which included an afternoon/dusk tour of Yasur Volcano and traditional dancing and an introduction to the stories behind the volcano and what it meant to the people of Tanna. The actual resort was great. The owner was very welcoming. The food and service were terrific. We were escorted to it to...
