Ideal place to stay on Niue Island for families. 2 pool areas with 1 area for children to play in and pool bar. We arrived on the "off season" which I found was very pleasant as when you went to any of the swimming/snorkeling spots you found you were the only ones there. This Island is like no other Island,...

My wife and I spent a week on beautiful Niue island, where we stayed at the Matavai Resort. As well seasoned travelers Matavai had everything we would expect from a good hotel. The one thing that set them apart from the others was there friendly staff that went well above our expectations. If I must single any one out, the... More

I am glad we made this trip to Niue. I have travelled to a couple of islands in the Pacific but this one outshone the others ... a place in the sun, away from the hustle and bustle of life. We enjoyed the solitude of the island and the flora and fauna as well. The Matavai GM and Staff were... More

I write this review reluctantly as I want to keep this little gem all to myself. I have travelled a fair amount and to a couple of Pacific Island but NOTHING can describe this untouched paradise. From stepping off the plane to the smiling Matavai staff, to the warm reception from the GM at the meet and greet drinks by... More

This was our first trip to Niue- sold to me by the very believable representative for Niue at the Travel Show in Auckland. All of what he told me was very true and I was happy he swayed me into making a decision when it had only been a thought I had had some time ago. All in all it... More

Staff who are the perfect balance of friendly and professional. Clean, modern establishment with stunning views of the coast line. The team were always helpful, particularily the concierge who, when my scheduled diving sessions had to be postponed, she helped me plan other activities- she was very knowledgable and gave good advice about my options. Despite being a small island... More

We certainly appreciate you taking the time to review Matavai, thank you. Needing another week on the island is a common guest comment on departure day, it is a little island but has an incredible range of activities to enjoy and places to visit. I understand your comments with regard to our Restaurant services. While a small population has many... More

During my recent first holiday in Niue from 07/02/14 to 21/02/14 I'd often call into the Resort and always made welcome from all staff, ordering a snack & soft drinks after spending a few hours driving around the entire Island, friendly hotel cat, beautiful views especially when filming the sunset. Spoke to many staff members some being local & some... More

Greetings, thanks for taking the time to read this feedback and it is our impression on Niue as a whole and the Matavai Resort. We are a family of 4, mum and dad, 2 girls, 15 and 10 year olds and our reason for picking Niue is that we have travelled to Fiji, Vanuatu, Rarotonga and now fancied somewhere different... More
