Wonderful resort. The real Fiji is this side of the island. Beautiful Bure. We were upgraded to Beach front. Food was amazing. Staff went to a local village to get us a crayfish. We were presented with an amazing seafood platter.

We had a wonderful time at Wananavu Beach Resort this past March. The food was exceptional, the staff courteous, helpful and accommodating. Our beach front bure was comfortable during our seven night stay. The Wi-Fi worked most of the time except after a horrendous lightning/thunder storm knocked out service for a few hours. We also experienced exceptional service from the...

First time visit and for one night only as we toured around Viti Levu. I regretted only staying here for one night about 15 minutes into our stay!

The Good: the resort is lovely. Very traditional Fijian, everything is made out of wood. Staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating. The resort is nestled on a hill so the bures are scattered at different levels, so each one has a nice view of the ocean just below. We got a free upgrade from garden view to ocean view because...

I was able to do a few different things at this resort for a fraction of what I would have to pay at the resorts at Denaru. I took my first dive lesson here, went snorkelling, saw a cultural show and had a massage. Everything went very well.

our stay at Wananuvu got off to an ordinary start - the transfer from the airport to the resort did not turn up. That was frustrating after a long day's travel and did bonito put us n a good frame of mind. The driver of the transport we eventually got tried to rip us off and that was ugly. After...
