I can't express enough how fantastic this resort was. My wife and I got married here in October and we don't regret a single second of our time there. As many other people have said, the trip from Nadi airport to the resort felt long but was definitely worth it once you had got to the resort. It's set on...

This was our third visit. We really enjoy the resort and all the staff. They are extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoy scuba dving and signed up for the 10 night-18 tank dive package. Meals were wonderful and the beachfront bure was delightful. Chris and Victoria Liles run a terrific dive shop and with his staff of : Jimmi, Kenni,...

Fair warning, this is my first trip advisor review. I'm writing it becuase I really think the 4.5 star average was really off base, though I have only stayed here in Fiji, so pthis review may partly reflect the main island of Fiji as a travel destination. Wananavu is a private resort that is far from anything, Pros: - The...

This review goes right along with several other here: I wish I could give this place a better rating, but 3/5 is already too high. I would say 2.5/5 would be more accurate. The pros: THE VILLA! I was here for my best friend's wedding and we took up the entire hotel. a small group of us booked the Villa...

We stayed here Sept 28.2013 through Oct 5, 2013. I am giving this place high ratings only because of the dive shop. The dive shop gives you "Princess Diving". Vicky and Chris along with their crew - Mere Sweet and the Wananavu Dive Boys were outstanding. They took care of everything. We only had to be concerned about putting our...

This is a tough one. I hate when people write reviews just to complain and I don't want to be that person. Wananavu should work and has massive potential - but it doesn't hit the mark. There are parts people are going to like and parts people are going to hate and these are just my opinions. A lot of...

When we stayed at the Dreamview villas we visited the Wananavu Beach Resort and this is another place in Raki raki worth staying. We loved the beach and the view is magnificent. Just "magic". After spending time in Wananavu I get the feeling that this place will one day be the highlight of Vitilevu. Just home hope it is not...

Such a superb spot and with wonderful attentive staff. We stayed in a honeymoon Bure that had its own plunge pool and views across the ocean to several islands. The gardens were very tidy and the ground staff always had a friendly smile as we walked by. It is on the side of a hill so people who are not...

All of my expectations were either met or exceeded. Having dived several other places I can honestly say this was by far the best dive experience of my life. I don't know where to begin. My decision to come here was based on the reviews and easy access. It is very frustrating trying to plan a trip when you have...
