Matavai Motel - excellent place to stay, friendly staff, good swimming pool, close view of the sea, comfortable unit with balcony, good facilities in motel unit. Only 2kms to Matavai Resort and about 10 mins into Alofi, from Matavai Motel.

I stayed at Matavai Resort Hotel last week as part of a work Famil. What a fantastic location. you could spend literally hours gazing at the ocean from either your room or the bar or the pool areas. some of us were working though. A friendly hotel with great facilities, friendly staff and good food and reasonably priced drinks. Nothing... More

The Island is what we wanted. We chose Matavai Resort as this holiday was our honeymoon and wanted a luxurious spot to... More

Returned to Matavai in October this year (previously stayed in June 2013) as part of the group that fished the International Wahoo Fishing Competition and coming back to Matavai is like coming home. The amazing staff were so welcoming and helpful, the grounds and facilities are looking amazing and the staff at the Matavai ensured we had a great week... More

Spent a week with friends on Niue at Matavai's Villa which is located up the road (towards Alofi) from Matavai Resort - the house itself is well appointed and well kitted out for a pleasant week away - the area immediately around the Villa could benefit from some more landscaping but it looks like a work in progress - Niue...

The Matavai Resort is the best place to spend a week away from everything. The island is beautiful, with so much to do and the local people and their culture is something that needs to be experienced first hand to fully appreciate how untouched and genuine it really is. We would recommend the island for business, couples, families and singles... More

Very nice resort with excellent views and good rooms. Stayed for 1 week as part of a fishing tournament and explored around the resort's grounds when I wasn't out on a boat fishing. Would definitely stay here again. Staff were very friendly and professional with regard to all requests. Highly recommend walking down to the reef area during low tide... More

Stayed at the relaxing Matavai resort and was treated to gorgeous views of the ocean every morning from my cliff top room along with the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks. Spotted pods of dolphins and even a few whales from our deck. The pool deck was often filled with people waiting to see what moves these graceful... More

We agree! Niue is the perfect spot for to get away with the kids. Many families arrive ready to get out and have a true family break with the amazing walking tracks, snorkelling and swimming spots and little beaches. At the end of the day there is nothing like the bubbling laughter of kids swimming in the pools while there... More

Stayed at Matavai as part of a wedding group and so glad I did. Don't usually stay at resorts, so have little to compare with but found Matavai to be a wonderful spot. Loved my clean, spacious room with a view across the garden to the horizon and the stunning sunsets. The buffet breakfast with fresh fruits and other selections... More
