4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Came here on my own for a birthday treat and had the most super time. I booked a Superior Cliff top room and it was lovely. The restaurant tries to change their menu daily to suit an event and the staff are just so friendly and welcoming. Will be coming back.

My friend and I went to Nieu, a small Polynesian island 3 hours out of Auckland and not knowing what to expect. We had the best time, what a magnificent picturesques place, the snorkelling was second to none, swimming around this amazing coral and the most beautiful coloured fish you could imagine. We are both in our 60th and thought... More

Since our last visit in 2014 the Scenic Circle chain has taken over the management. A warm welcome from the manager Simon and his friendly staff complete with a refreshing choice of beverages. There have been some improvements to what is being offered. It was great to be offered a complimentary poolside drink at 4pm on the first night. Simon... More

A king bed, ceiling fan and air con if need. Coffee plunger/ hot choc/and teas lovely. 1 hour of free wifi which was a little slow but... More

Excellent Resort everything well maintained. Well appointed spacious rooms. Large indoor/outdoor dining room and top deck. Really good meals. Down 2 decks to large pool then down to small pool, pool bar and more viewing decks. Great place for happy hour, sundowners and to see fantastic sunsets. Views to die for from all parts of the Resort.

I never had any plans to visit Niue but some advertising by Air New Zealand saw us soaring up to Niue to stay at Matavai. Y One keeps to yourself on the plane and arrivals hall (shed) but at this point you start to notice a point of difference. By the time you leave the island and resort it's like... More

We stayed at the Scenic Matavai Resort for a week. We chose a cliff top room (#25). These rooms have an unobstructed view of the sea and you can sleep all night with the deck ranch slider open. The surf is quiet loud at times and it took a night or two to get used to it. I found it... More

Absolutely fabulous place to stay. Friendly, welcoming staff, great atmosphere, spectacular views. Only negative is resort food is a bit on the expensive side. Felt like I was amongst friends for my birthday. Didn't want to leave, could have stayed there forever. Highy recommend the Ocean View room, watching the dolphins swim by or relax at the pool bar enjoying... More

All the staff at the Matavai were extremely helpful and friendly, nothing was ever any trouble for them . The deck at the resort was fabulous, so enjoyable to sit there with a drink and a good meal.
