Loved going to Matanivusi, the Aussie owners were so lovely and welcoming and it was so much fun. It's a small, family-run eco-miniresort and the local staff made you feel like family. Tours to local villages and waterfalls were available and activities everyday were simple to organise/do. Surfing of course at Frigates was done by the boys while the girls... More

My wife and I had 4 nights here in early June (lost 2 days because of Fiji Airways cancelling our flight - terrible experience with them). Matanivusi is a great eco-resort, small with a warm friendly vibe. Lovely food, spacious and comfortable room and we got some good waves. Highly recommend. We will return.

Saying the staff is friendly is an understatement. They are so incredibly nice and considerate, they feel like they are instantly your long time friends. The rooms are incredible. My dad is an architect and I can say that these rooms are not only very well made but they also have a wonderful design that really makes it feel like... More

First time in Fiji, we will be back based on our very favourable experience at this very well run resort. Friendly staff, nothing was a problem. Food great, cocktails by the water a treat. The trip was all about my mother's 70th birthday, and the staff went above and beyond making her feel special. The special treatment was much appreciated.... More

We have just returned from an amazing week with family, ages 19, 22 & 24. We had the best time, Matanivusi was the highlight of our 2 week holiday. The resort is so beautiful and is surrounded by paradise, the way nature intended. The eco principles are so cutting edge. Brian, Donna and the team so friendly and really go... More

This holiday we took in January this year was a last minuet booking and we have not looked back. We go to Fiji every year and like to try different resorts but we will always go back to this one because it suited us all. We are a family of 4, my husband and me and a 5 yr old... More

A crystal blue translucent sanctuary by the sea. Palm fronds dancing, happy Fijian workers singing and the two red girls (Coolie & Burleigh) fishing on the beach. This sustainable, eco friendly idyllic surf resort speaks total relaxation with a homely demeanor. Uber in every aspect, activities for all ages plus surfing that is easily some of the best I have...

Matanivusi Surf Resort was recommended to us from a friend. We stayed for 6 nights and just loved the experience. The resort was beautiful and Donna and Brian and all the staff went out of their way to ensure our stay was enjoyable and that Robert had a great birthday. Robert managed to get some good surf and I just... More

We recently stayed at Matanivusi after finding it on the web. We are a bit on the fussy side when it comes to accommodation and as we didn't know anyone who had stayed here before so we only booked 4 nights before another 8 nights at the Sheraton Villas at Denarau. The reason for our trepidation was purely the lack... More
