WANANAVU the real Fiji
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Wananavu, Sun Coast, North Viti Levu, Fiji
There’s something quite special about 4 Star rated Wananavu. It’s a “mainland” destination, but, maybe because of its absolute beachfront location overlooking the ocean with islands in the mid-distance, it feels a lot like you are holidaying at an off-shore island resort when you stay here.  Wananavu is located on the north coast of Fiji’s main island Viti Levu, well off the main north (Kings Road) which links Lautoka to Suva via Rakiraki and several other small towns in north Viti Levu, so it’s quiet and serene staying here.

Built on a small beach promontory the Resort’s Main Complex housing the Restaurant, Bar, lounge etc. is around half way up the hill from the beach.  The Resort Pool is just steps below the Restaurant and on this middle level, you will also find the “Wai” Spa. The Main Complex overlooks the Resort marina, jetty and the beach facilities.  Beach facilities include the tennis court, boat shed and the Dive Shop incorporating the Beach Activities Centre and the Beach Café.

Scuba diving us a great attraction in this part of Fiji. Diva Wananavu has its headquarters at The Resort and dive packages are available from 5 night/6 tank to 10 night/16 tank packages.  Our Specialists are happy to organise accommodation and dive packages for you.
Quoting Wananavu on their Dive Operation

World class diving delivered by our PADI Gold Palm Certified team will have you coming back again and again and again.

Easy access to shore dives, Sailstone Reef with 20 plus sites is 10 to 15mins by boat. Vatu-I-Ra Passage and the legendary Bligh Waters with 20 plus sites is 45 to 80mins by boat”

What Wananavu Say About Themselves
"Welcome to wananavu

Bula - Sean Tiesman and the team invite you to share their slice of Paradise and would like to welcome you to wananavu.

Untouched by mainstream tourism, wananavu beach resort is situated on the northern most point of Fiji’s main island at Viti Levu. We’re under 2 hours drive from Nadi airport, so we combine the convenience of the mainland with the idyllic isolation of an island retreat.

Birdsong and the lapping of the waves are the loudest things you’ll hear on our Sun Coast and we guarantee it won’t be long before you slip into the slow rhythms of Fiji time.

wananavu means "wonderful" in Fijian and that’s exactly what your experience will be. Our friendly, smiling staff will do everything possible to make your stay the experience of a lifetime.

wananavu Resort has been designed with fun and relaxation in mind. We have a range of free facilities and attractions for you to try.

You can enjoy yourself while getting some exercise on our tennis courts, try a gentle game of petanque or challenge yourself at wananavu frisbee golf.

Snorkel gear is available free of change and there are daily snorkelling trips to the inner and outer reefs.

For those after a more cultural and educational experience, over the week we host interesting talks from our local sage on the history and culture of the region, herbal medicine & the Fijian flora and fauna.

wananavu’s chefs take pride in creating sumptuous dishes so that your dining experience will be a memorable part of your stay on our picturesque island resort.

Glorious weather means guests often choose to dine on the deck where they can take in the panoramic views of the clear blue Pacific Ocean and the lush tropical gardens.

Whether you join us to get below the surface on our world renown dive sites, say “I do” in a beachfront wedding ceremony, be pampered by expert hands in the Wai Spa or simply pick a hammock and doze through a book, wananavu will seduce you into its rhythm and keep you far from the madding crowd.”

The Meal Plan gives guests the run of the menu, although there may be a surcharge for crab and lobster courses.

Your Accommodation Options
There is a wide range of accommodation types at Wananavu. All Bures and Villas offer a good mix of Fijian and contemporary styles and each has a terrific tiled bathroom. The ceilings are high-pitched in the Fiji Bure fashion, walls are painted in a light modern shade and the floors are beautifully polished Fijian hardwood planks. The wooden floors continue seamlessly out of the bure on to the veranda decks.  Wananavu have deliberately left out TV and radio from their Bures and Villas. All accommodation is air-conditioned and all bures have ceiling fans and flow-through ventilation. Being located on raised land with ocean on two sides results in there being pleasant sea breezes at night and many guests leave the air-conditioning turned off and enjoy the breeze and the sounds of the ocean lulling them to sleep.

Facing the ocean and the sunrise, the Beachfront Bures on the lowest level of the resort, are only steps away from the sand. The Restaurant and Lobby building is located further up the rise and is a pleasant stroll up through the tropical gardens from the beach and the Beachfront Bures.  For those preferring accommodation on the same level as the Restaurant and car park, we recommend either the Garden View Bures or the Ocean View Bures. The magnificent Villa Vanua is further up the rise from the Restaurant.

All Bures are open and airy with plenty of space for living and sleeping as well as having a spacious veranda deck with comfortable outdoor furnishings. Honeymoon Bures feature private plunge pools. The Family Bure and the splendid Villa Vanua offer a kitchen option.
