I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Wananavu in particular, but Fiji is a truly beautiful part of the world. The staff at the resort were very helpful and courteous. The food was great. The view from the resort restaurant was phenomenal. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I would put the actual rooms in the 2.5 star category, but clean....

I thoroughly enjoyed Wananavu Beach Resort, I have no complaints of any kind. I too like one of the others posters cried when it was time to leave. I become entrenched in the culture and really loved the resort staff. The pool with the waterfall was fantastic. As for the dive operation and boat staff, they were above and beyond....

I and my wife were fortunate enough to spend 10 nights at Wananavu celebrating our 20th anniversary. We stayed in Bure 50 the Honeymoon suite. We hadn't originally booked it, but we were upgraded to it at a very reasonable rate. The bure was the best accommodation we have experienced. The plunge pool and outside shower were phenomenal. We renewed...

This place is splendid and much much more adventurous and romantic than seen in the pictures.

Can't sing Wananavu's praises enough. We just had our wedding at Wananavu with 45 family and friends and the service and experience we had was second to none. Everyone onsite - from front of house through to housekeeping, gardeners and security - never failed to say BULA! and it was such a special feeling. All of our friends and family...

My trip and time to Wananavu was an adventurous trip by myself to attend a writing retreat on the premises for a week.

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.
