Situated on Fiji's main island at Viti Levu's most northern point - 2 1/4 hours drive from Nadi airport, Wananavu Beach Resort offers you the feel of an island paradise with the convenience of the mainland.
Wananavu Beach Resort has 34 deluxe 'bures' situated on palm-fringed beachfront or amongst lush tropical gardens. The spectacular reef and sunset scenes from the bures and restaurant bar are unparalleled.

There's something for everyone; diving, cultural activities, picnics to secluded beaches, village tours, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking or just lying by the pool with a book and cocktail.

Our bures have no phones, radios or tvs giving you the chance to experience a peaceful slice of paradise.  Each bure and villa offers air-conditioning/ceiling fans or can be naturally cooled by the tropical sea breezes.

Wananavu is perfect for singles, couples and is family friendly, a resort that offers you the relaxed 'out of the way' Fiji.

Our wonderful staff, bures, fresh local food, picturesque views, warm water, fantastic snorkeling and world-renowned diving make Wananavu a unique Fijian getaway.

ROMANCE: Imagine you and the one you love, sipping cocktails in your private plunge pool as the sun dips beneath the waves or being royally pampered together in the intimate Wai Spa or a hammock for two under the starry southern sky.

Imagine having traditional Fijian warriors escort you down the beachfront aisle to your betrothed or a private beach for a private renewal of vows.  Imagine a honeymoon bure bathed in Bligh Water brilliance, an occasion to savour, an occasion to share, an occasion never to be forgotten.

DIVE: Combine awe-inspiring diving in the legendary Bligh Water & Sailstone reef with a 4 star rated resort you have a product that is, well, Wananavu!  From beginners to braggers, from critter finders to camera minders, from thousand fish frenzies to sensational soft coral and from the tiniest crustacean to largest cetacean, from 'Sailstone' to 'Vatu' and 'the Bligh,' you haven't dived Fiji until you dive Wananavu.

Wananavu is just what you have been looking for.
