My partner and I spent 4 nights at Mantaray in April on 2015. We stayed in a Jungle Bure, and were impressed with the cleanliness of the accommodation and amenities. Communal areas and gardens were well maintained. As a couple in our late 30's, we definitely felt this place was more set up for back-packers coming and going on the... More

We recently stayed at Mantaray Island Resort for our honeymoon. We stayed in the newly built beach villas which have the most amazing bathrooms! We had such a great time with having the ability to snorkel on the amazing reef straight off our doorstep. We could keep to ourselves or mingle with all the backpackers that are coming through the...

I had booked and paid in advance for 3 days in the treehouse.We'd just come in from another resort. My husband was sick and needed to be close to the toilets. They were a reasonable distance from our room, with lots of steps in the dark. We tried to change our room to one with a toilet, but staff would... More

My husband and I visited on part of our honeymoon trip we took all around Fiji and Solomon Islands. I adore Manta Rays and the resort looked very nice. This is a resort for children and catered to that. If you are in your gap year, and rich, this is the place for you! Not an adventurous honeymoon. Upon check... More

We had a brilliant Easter family holiday (all adults) at this spot last week! Our Beach Villas were exactly that, with azure blue ocean and golden sand vista from our bed! The snorkelling is simply amazing and our family were impressed with the variety of coral and diverse sea life in beautifully clear waters. The exciting bonus was swimming with... More

Stayed with my partner in the treehouse bure which was nice, small but ok. The staff were very friendly and the food was pretty good especially dinner. Nice bar area and good cocktails was a plus ! Didn't mind the shared facilities toilets were always clean. The only thing that bothered us was lots of Mosquitos !! Lastly snorkelling was... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend in March 2015. We stayed in a treehouse bure which was just big enough for our bed and closed cases but it was close to the communal toilets and showers which was useful. Although they were cold water only the showers were pleasant and the unconventional toilets were not that bad.... More

My friend and I stayed at Mantaray for two nights and it was the best experience of my life! The island itself is stunning, but the staff made it that much better. The Fijian singing in the evening was amazing and the food was always delicious. I would 100% recommend staying here and I would do so in a heart... More

We heard good things about Mantaray before we visited so our hopes were high. This was our second island to visit with the coconut cruiser package. Like every island we were greeted by the welcome song along with a delicious pineapple juice each. The staff were energetic and friendly making it a good start to the day. The introduction was...
