I visited this place with a couple of friends( they have been before). From the personal airport pick up to the uncrowded first class waves. This place can not be faulted. The accommodation was amazing the staff were so friendly and helpful and so much fun to be with. The food was so delicious and I loved the fact that... More

3 young kids, a sun loving mum and a surf mad dad - we all had an absolute ball. Great place and staff made it all the more awesome, attentive, friendly, and nothing was too much to ask for. No kids club but babysitters are fantastic and there are activities a plenty. You can't control the weather but it was... More

Matanivusi is hard to get to but once there you just relax, enjoy the location and the experience. The staff were so welcoming and do all in their power to make your holiday memorable - smiles and service the best. There are so many surf spots to try, you won't miss out on a surf no matter the weather. The... More

Everything about this resort was above expectations!! The location was heavenly; steeped in nature, between thick lush forest and delicious blue ocean, where one is caressed by the energy of the location at all times day and night. The staff were so so beautiful!! They were always ensuring our needs were met, and extending wonderful service, friendliness, smiles and local... More

Beautiful location, delicious food and the friendliest people (Donna and Brian, all the staff, and also the other guests). Absolutely lovely experience. I'm a beginner surfer but still managed to get out there lots, as well as snorkel, SUP, fish, relax by the pool... lots to do! The actual accommodation is stunning as well. Cannot say enough good things about... More

I'm an older (ancient) surfer, who has never really had a surf trip with my beautiful wife, because I don't want her getting bored, while I'm out surfing. Well this resort is ideal for our age group, plenty of options for partners, staff go out of their way to help, if you want to relax, no worries, if you want... More

This was my 3rd trip to the region in the past 12 months to surf and relax but the first time I have stayed at Matanivusi. This will be the only place I would go in the future, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and Brian was always keen to get us out into the surf as early as... More

Came here for a solo surf trip (second time coming here), and it did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and welcoming, and you become part of their family. The room is modern, clean, and spacious. The food was amazing the first time, and it was wonderful again this time. The resort is eco friendly, and they try to leave... More

Stunning place. Thoughtful and inviting Aussie owners. Sustainability is a primary goal. Beautiful facilities and individual bungalow cabins directly on the ocean. Gorgeous wood floors, screened-in sleeping comfort, beautiful bed and sheets/pillows. The food was delicious and served in a community settling. It was so fun to get to know the other guests, and that was a highlight for me,... More
