We have stayed at the Matavai four times over the years. Every time we notice improvement in standards. This time it was in the evening meals. The local dish on the menu was lovely. The staff are always very friendly. Grounds tidy. We prefer the old style of accommodation however the new accommodation is very smart. The Matavai is a... More

Place is just lovely with views to ocean, dolphins and whales. Staff so nice and flexible, they listen your wishes and do the best they can, you will feel comfortable. Waves cause noise, that is only minus in the place. Rooms are very clean and food good, a perfect place as your basement when exploring the island.

I had the opportunity to visit Niue and the renown Matavai Resort early August 2014 and was amazed with their hospitality. The food was great! Serene atmosphere...there was a band playing that night (Friday) and halfway through their performance we joined in the singing and eventually took over the entertainment part even though we were patron/ guest!!!

The restaurant was a great place to eat and the cocktails were yummy expecially the death by chocolate. I would recommend this resort in a heart beat, and we will be going back as... More

We chose to stay at Matavai resort as we hadn't been to Niue before and were unsure what to expect. As hoped, the Matavai provided a high level of comfort, with attractive rooms, nice ensuites, air conditioning and good food in the restaurant. They provide guests with interesting local colour most evenings, including two weekly buffets with entertainment and demonstrations... More

We’d never think a big hotel like this was possible on such a small island. Still, it was not busy at all, we practically had the whole restaurant - and you’d think, the entire Pacific Ocean at our footsteps - to ourselves. This is the only upscale place to spend a night on Niue, and well worth the (not so... More
