This is our second stay at the White Grass. Rooms are beautifully considered and quality products provided in the bathroom. Thought has been put into the room design to ensure the comfort of guests. Peter and Tracey are the perfect hosts, nothing was a problem. We felt like hosts, everything was catered for.

We really enjoyed our three night stay at Whitegrass. Our “Bure” bungalow was cozy and comfortable with a beautiful ocean view. The grounds and garden around the resort are immaculate. And the food in the restaurant was consistently fresh and tasty. The menu is reassuringly short while guest numbers are down. But they still managed to accommodate dietary restrictions. Managers Tracy and Peter worked really hard to ensure we had a great break. Tracy’s stock answer to any request or enquiry is “Easy!”. There was maximum flexibility over when we booked our trips to the volcano and “Tanna Highlights”. And, although the 4WD has seen finer days, driver and guide Kapalo makes driving on ash fields and rugged roads feel fun rather than concerning. The room rates for domestic tourists during COVID are a steal. And the resort is five minutes from Lenakel airport. I reckon it was an hour and a half door to door to get home to Port Vila. We were there as a couple and had a great time. But it’s clear that Tracy also loves children. While we were there, she rigged up a bucket pulley system to get drinks from the restaurant to the beach to make a family’s camp fire extra special.

Perfect service. From the time we got there until we left I would say everything was handled pretty top notch. The location is stunning and the amenities perfect, facing the sunset !!! Wayne, the owner was very approachable and the reception as well organised everything we asked for , including day tours and coordinating with the airport for the late arrival of our luggage. The pool is fantastic just by the ocean and there are even hammocks down by the beach. It is a rock beach though but doesn’t take anything away from it. The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. High ceiling meaning it doesn’t get stuffy at night even with just a fan. The food and drinks are good. Food is priced on the higher side which is the only issue but then again we are in a resort in the middle of the ocean. Quality is good. Would definitely recommend for a stress free stay on Tanna Island. Don’t miss!! With limited light pollution, the stars come out on a clear night!!!

We stayed 7 nights and loved every moment. Beautiful clean bure with sea views and the most gorgeous tropical gardens. The staff are very friendly and helpful as are all the local people.The restaurant boasts the the most impressive views overlooking the ocean and reefs, sunsets are amazing. The food is beautifully presented and tastes spectacular and most of it is locally grown and sourced. We did a few day trips but were very happy to spend most of our time snorkeling in and around the pristine reefs(blue holes especially). We enjoyed 2 Scuba dives with Max and Jim(Volcano Divers) and were treated to spectacular easy diving. One of our highlights was a tour to see Mt Yasur. This is a must do tour to witness a Volcano up close and personal. Mother nature at her finest!! This is a place for dreaming, soaking up the sun, fresh air and scenery. Loved every moment.

We stayed 4 days with our two teen daughters and wish we could have stayed longer! The 2 bedrooms seem newer and quite spacious, the single cabins are a bit more dated. The center of activity is the restaurant, bar, and front desk building. After a busy day it was great to hang out on the chairs with incredible views sipping a beer or wine. We made a habit of those two hours chatting prior to dinner while the sunset and although simple i was memorable. Breakfasts are outstanding and their bread is AMAZING. Lunch Dinner have 3 choices for mains and a couple of entree's. We found ourselves looking forward to the choices usually a meat, a fish, and a veg option. Consistently really good food! Snorkelling off the jetty can be challenging at times unless you are a strong swimmer. There is a guided turtle tour every morning at 9am which we did twice, and saw multiple turtles. Snorkelling at Blue Hole 1 and Blue Hole 2 are available with a short walk, but at some tide levels entry to these more sheltered coves is difficult, but again worth it. Tours rarely if ever ran on time, but we always deeply enjoyed them. Strongly recommend you double check and confirm tours as they were consistently over-booked or under-booked. Highly recommend this island and resort, one of the best, most relaxing, and well run.
