The White Grass Ocean Resort is fantastic. The snorkelling was beautiful and easily accessible, no extra paid trip necessary. The trip to see the Mt Yasur volcano was amazing. The staff were friendly and very professional; the room was clean and tidy and the restaurant served excellent food. Our only complaint was that We didn’t stay long enough. We definitely plan to go back!
