Wananavu Beach Resort

Close to the world renowned dive sites of the Bligh Waters.

Hidden away in a perfectly idyllic setting on Fiji’s northern sunshine coast, Wananavu is a four star island paradise experience with the easy convenience of still being on mainland. Just over 2 hour’s journey from Nadi airport, on arrival at the resort you will be greeted by smiles and the biggest “Bula!” in the real Fiji. Whether you are looking for a scuba dive resort to get below the surface on the world renowned dive sites of the Bligh Waters, say “I do” in a beachfront wedding ceremony or just doze to a book, Wananavu Beach Resort will seduce you and keep you far from the maddening crowds found on Fiji’s larger resorts.

Set amongst lush tropical gardens along the beach front and perched on the hill with endless views over the crystal clear waters of the Cakau Batidra Reef and Nanavu Islands, Wananavu’s accommodation is designed so you can relax and feel rejuvenated by your tropical holiday. The 34 bures are all beautifully appointed, tastefully decorated and have a distinctively Fijian feel so you can escape from the modern world and truly relax as there are no TV’s or radios in the rooms allowing you to switch off and surrender yourself to the lost art of relaxing.

Wananavu’s chefs take pride in creating great dishes so that your dining experience will be a memorable part of your stay on this picturesque island resort. Glorious weather means you can choose to dine on the deck where you can take in the panoramic views of the clear blue Pacific Ocean and the lush tropical gardens. In the evening what could be more perfect than a drink on the deck while you watch the sun set and the ceremony of the lighting of the flares?

The resort has been designed with fun and relaxation in mind. With a range of free facilities and attractions for you to try on, you can choose to go on cultural tours with host interesting talks on the history and culture of the region, herbal medicine and the Fijian flora and fauna. If underwater activities are all you want then Dive Wananavu is able to showcase everything that makes the Bligh Waters legendary. As the only land based dive operation in Fiji that is able to offer on-site and on-demand NITROX, Dive Wananavu encourages you to take advantage and extend your time below.
