Let me start by saying this place is by far the best resort I stayed at during my time in Fiji. Not only is the resort clean and modern, but it's set in the most incredible location. I shouldn't forget that the staff are the most friendly and lovely people ever! I stayed for 2 nights, and they still made... More

Mantaray Island Resort was my fav place when island hopping during my time on Fiji. The staff is so sweet and they have great activities. Unfortunately, I went when it wasn't mantaray session but instead they did a wonderful sunset tube cruise. And the food was the best - very varied too.

We stayed for a couple of nights late last year. The day we have arrived mid afternoon, we had our briefing and have mentioned to them that we'd like to see the Manta Ray during out stay. We were offered to go to swim with the Manta Ray that afternoon, as a group has gone out already, or we can... More

As a retiree of the airline industry, and snorkeling being a priority, I've been to many islands both in the Caribbean and South Pacific. Before I went to Mantaray Island, I did lots of research and chose it for a 9 day stay. I was not disappointed. Of course, the snorkeling was superb, but I hadn't expected to encounter such... More

Whilst Island hoping around the yasawas we chose mantaray. The food was amazing! The island is in a great location. For snorkelling off of the beach but unfortunately bad weather led to us not being able to try this. The resort was clean, friendly and good fun. Would definately recommend this as a stop on an island hoping trip.

This is the place where everyone will treat you like a friend. I really feel sad when you leave, great atmosphere, perfect location and even special when you can swim along the coast with the Mantarays. Incredible.

Our 3 night stay at Mantaray island resort was the last island we traveled to among the Fiji islands; talk about saving the best til last! We traveled as a large group of 12 adults and this island was amazing. There was always something to do, such as coconut tasting, snorkeling, fishing trips, kayaking, weaving, volley ball, lounging in the... More

One night we choose to not go to dinner and opted for a pizza down on the beach. Within a hour the staff were on to it, they offered to bring our meals... More

My partner and I stayed here as part of the Tropical Awegasm trip by Awesome Adventures and loved this place. We stayed in a private bure which is pretty small but very clean and with a nice balcony. The food was by far the best food we had on all the islands which is understandable as you have to pay... More

One of the best islands to visit when in FIJI!! Perfect for couples or groups. Some of the most amazing snorkeling I have ever experienced in 40 years!!! The island staff is very helpful and the food is fabulous! Don't miss the opportunity to do a sunset tub float with your favorite cocktail..when island hopping don't miss this true gem.
