We stayed at Matamanoa Island for 3 nights in a beautiful Villa, only used the main facilities for dining & spent the rest of the time around by the villa as it had everything we wanted - our own warmer plunge pool, day bed, loungers & beautiful beach shared amongst the villas, however we very rarely came across other couples....

We went to Matamanoa island for our honeymoon and had the best time, we really didn't want to leave. The staff were amazing, island was beautiful, we couldn't ask for more. However there are somethings that you probably want to know: Food - If you're a big foodie then you might find the menu choices a little limited. You need... More

This was the second island that we had visited on our honeymoon and we found this very romantic and picturesque. We can only describe this as paradise! The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. If you are into scuba diving then we would definitely recommend Em & Trev because after many years of doing "try dives"... More

We spent almost a week there. The island is nice and although the infrastructure is already a little bit older, it is still in a good shape. We stayed in a beach front bure. It is not worth the additional money and we would recommend going for the garden bure. Avoid bure number 9 close to the pool. It is... More

Very small but charming island. Three nights would have been sufficient for us....honeymooners may enjoy a longer stay. Friendly relaxed atmosphere. Biggest snag is poor quality food at prices that do not reflect the product you get. If stuck on an island with one eating spot it is like being held to ransom. Restaurant should concentrate on what it can... More

The island is beautiful and very small, you can walk around it in 20 minutes. The snorkeling the fabulous and there is sailing and kayaking as well. The pool is ok, but there are so few sun lounges, that it is best to go down to the beach in front of your bure. The food is a disgrace, breakfast is... More

Spent a week here, enjoying temps around 28-30 degrees throughout, with a sea breeze making it very pleasant. The island is commendably child free (there is a lower age limit of 16). You can laze all day looking at the stunning views of ocean and islands, or take one of several trips arranged each day. We went to 'Castaway' island... More

My husband & I stayed here 2 years ago in a Beach Bure but decided this time to "upgrade" to one of the new Villas.It was the best choice we made. They are stunning. You have a Gazebo/day bed and your own plunge pool. Steps lead down to our own little bit of beach shared only with the other occupants... More

We just stayed here for 3 nights for a short honeymoon and unfortunately we left the island quiet unimpressed. There are many beautiful aspects of this resort such as: The scenery - its just stunning, it would be nice to visit at a time of the year like September where its not so cold and windy but isn't too hot...
