My wife & I stayed in a Garden Room for 10 nights and was absolute bliss once again after 3 years. Appreciated the special touches the staff went to for being a returnee. The Bures & Villas looked great, however we chose the more affordable option for us. Decided to take the South Sea Cruises resort transfer catamaran from Denarau... More

We stayed at Matamanoa for 5 days and it was the best 5 days we have ever had. Everything was to a very high standard. The staff were wonderful and the friendliest people we have ever met. You can do as much or as little as you like. The water sports centre offers a huge range of activities to enjoy.... More

Arrived at Matamanoa after two days at a wedding on the mainland in a concrete behemoth near the Coral Coast. The difference was mind blowing, this is a Fijian style resort at it's best.The staff were fabulous and could not help you enough. The room was great, clean and comfortable. I have read several less than glowing reports about the... More

We have been to many tropical island resorts including the Whitsunday Islands, Cairns and Islands off Brisbane and Gold Coast in Australia, Noumea and Vanuatu, Hawaii, Thailand, Borneo, Lankawi and Dubai which has some magnificent private beaches. Fiji never featured high on our list of places to go mainly because we didn't think it would offer much more than we... More

This was our second time back to Matamanoa and there have been some welcome changes to the bures. We stayed in a sunset side beach bure which now has more privacy, new decor, a plunge pool and daybed. Mind you , we still would have returned without these changes but the resort can now boast that it is moving up... More

From the first "Bula" welcome to the last sunset around the Kava Bowl, our stay was a wonderful, "authentic Fijian" experience. We chose the least expensive Garden Bures and they were perfect for our short stay & convenient to everything. The Beachfront Bures with plunge pools were lovely, and several new ones located near the spa will open in late... More

We stayed at the island for 4.5 days last week. Monday to Friday. Upon arriving at the Resort its hard to be disappointed if you’re searching for the ultimate, low key, adults only, Fiji island experience away from package tourist hordes and screaming children. Leave your city living expectations and pretensions behind and enjoy a wonderful friendly environment where the... More

Firstly our Beachfront Bure was gorgeous, I nearly died when we arrived!! The room was out of this world as was the plunge pool and the view..which was stunning! It was very clean also, thanks to Mary!! A few things that need improving are the deck and deck chairs around the main pool..they looked very old and beat up and... More

Bula Tracy, Vinaka for your feedback, we are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your holiday with us on Matamanoa Island.

We (the wife and I) spent a week here a couple of years ago and we absolutely loved it. It is a perfect spot to chill out. The rooms had everything you need, the best of which was no TV. The beach is on your door step and there is hardly anyone around to disturb you. Being a single resort... More
