My husband and I recently spent a week at Wananavu for our belated honeymoon and to celebrate our first anniversary. From the moment we arrived to when we left every staff member was warm and welcoming and called us by our first names. They surprised us on our anniversary and created a very special and memorable night for us which...

If you're looking to get away from the tourist zone, head to Rakiraki and stay at Wananavu. My husband and I visited for a 10 night stay in late September/early October, and we were very impressed with the resort. The staff is professional and courteous. Grounds are well maintained, and rooms are cleaned daily. We opted to stay in one...

My husband and I stayed at Wananavu at the tail end of a month long excursion. We loved it! We were looking for something that would not give us the typical resort feel that we could get in many places in the tropics; we were looking for something that was a little more out of the way that felt more...

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...

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!

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...
