Located on Tanna’s west coast, 2 km north of the main airport, White Grass Resort is your gateway to the mighty and beautiful Yasur volcano and to so much more. The resort’s fourteen individual bures sit along the water, offering fantastic views of the ocean. Decorated in an exotic Pacific-island style, the bures feature local timber and are spacious with all mod-cons. En-suite, hot showers, ceiling fans, mini bar and your private veranda with sea views; you don’t need to ‘rough it’ on your once-in-a-lifetime adventure!
In an idyllic location, right on the waterfront and enclosed by gorgeous gardens, there is direct access to the reef’s edge and inner reef pool for some fantastic snorkeling. At the end of your adventure-packed day, take a relaxing dip in the swimming pool or, if you would like to continue playing, a petanque and pitch ‘n putt golf course are perfect to build your appetite before dinner.
When you are ready to relax, the cute and private oceanfront massage bure is the place to go for a soothing island massage.
The restaurant takes in the magnificent panorama of the big blue ocean beyond and serves delicious fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ah, just imagine, sipping a cold beer or refreshing cocktail at the end of a splendid day…paradise.
White Grass Resort is definitely posh, but the best yet is all the activities that it offers. Visiting Mount Yasur, is of course, a must. But if you are thinking of spending only a couple of days, think again, because there is so much more to do and you will miss it!
For those who would like to experience Vanuatu culture, White Grass has a number of tours available that will take you off the beaten path and into remote Vanuatu. In the tour to Lokalangia Village, you will be able to experience a real kastom village, and no, this is not Disneyland, but a real village which welcomes visitors to glimpse their way of life.
The Black Magic and Kava tasting tour will give you a taste of both and the Tanna highlights tour shows you around Tanna’s huge coffee plantations, Lenakel village and historical sites. If nature is your thing, the Louniel Surf Beach and Waterfall safari goes up, up, up into stunning waterfalls, and down to lovely beaches and natural springs, while on the Green Sea Turtle tour you can meet the amazing green sea turtles. Snorkeling the blue holes, reef walking and plenty of bike trails are also on the adventure menu.
More? The fishermen will be pleased, as game fishing is also available, including yellow tuna, barracuda, wahoo and yes, marlin.
After all that, you could be exhausted! You certainly will be happy. But the adventure continues. Last March, White Grass Resort went a stage further and opened ‘Volcano Island Divers’. This is the first ever dive operation on Tanna island, revealing world-class, untouched reefs and their aquatic life to the world. Exploring exceptional sites seldom visited, Volcano Island Divers offers diving courses from beginners to advanced and full diving packages including gear. A world full of wonder awaits you so really, what are you waiting for?
