The Matavai Resort is the only hotel on the island, but the lack of competition has no impact on the quality of the rooms and the service, which is second to none. We were in a group of six couples staying in Ocean rooms, at ground level with lovely views of the gardens and ocean, and easy access to all... More

I stayed in the self-catering apartments - spacious, clean, modern bathroom and the wood-paneling gave it a seaside vibe. The view from the balcony was beautiful and the sound of the waves made for a relaxing time. Whales could be spotted just a few metres offshore - amazing! The main resort itself is a km away - I recommend hiring... More

The staff are happy, friendly and welcoming and made our stay even more pleasurable! I was in a group of 6 adults and we had 3 ocean view rooms. The rooms however basic were neat , clean and tidy. All the ocean view rooms are situated in a tropical garden setting. Think luscious greenery, palm trees and hibiscus flower, which... More

Scenic Matavai Resort Niue, has in my opinion, set a standard, that I hope other Scenic Resorts also live up to.The Resort is well designed, with a huge deck overlooking the bay below. Which made Whale spotting very easy. The food, and drinks, on offer, are very good, and of a high quality. But the staff really make this resort... More

Apologies for this slightly delayed review. We stayed at the Scenic Matavai in April 2015 for 3 nights and we plan to return to visit all the spots we missed. We loved the hotel and the island, which offers a different experience to other islands in the Pacific. The rooms are fairly recently refurbished and are a good size, with... More

This is our second stay at the Matavai resort. We were there for 7 nights and stayed in a unit overlooking the ocean. It was a beautiful clean, well presented and private unit with a wonderful view.

We stayed in these apartments for 3 nights and they were well priced, clean, comfortable and private. They are self contained. We brought food with us and it was great.
