The accommodation was beautiful, my wife loved the bures and going to sleep at night to the sound of the waves lapping the beach was awesome. The boats for... More

We stayed at this lovely boutique resort for 4 days and spent New Year's Eve with, what I like to call, our Fiji-Australian family! We wanted to have some main land experience and made a last minute change of plans to stay at Matanivusi, which we will always be grateful for! (It is very important you ask for directions to...

I spent one night here and loved it - although it's not really a place for singles, it is great for meeting people. Donna who is one of the owners was very friendly and welcoming - the best part were the staff; they have a good sense of when to leave you alone and when it assist you. It is... More

Swam in the salt water pool relaxing with some nice cocktails, made by Ledge, a great humored Fijian barman. We met a few other travelers and talked of our holiday, good times etc...The food...

This is the perfect place for those looking to balance wife / family time with scoring epic waves. If you're wife doesn't surf (like mine ) then there's heaps for them to do like snorkel/ SUP / yoga studio. The accom is 5 star cant fault it! We were the only guests at the resort when we were there it... More

Was lucky enough to spend seven nights in one of the most tranquil settings i have ever seen. It is a surf resort, which my Tony loved and had days of great surf. Many other activities available for the non surfer like me. All water sports available and guides to help with all. For me it was about having a... More

It musn't be easy to run a boutique eco resort in Fiji but Donna & Brian do it wonderfully well, ably assisted by Tony and the rest of the staff. Everything you see on their website or in official Tripadvisor photos are exactly how it is. It's as peaceful and tranquil or adventurous as you want to make it. The... More

This place is great in every way...the people, the food, the location, the activities. We have visited 3 times now, and always look forward to returning. This resort caters to you, which lets you do a lot or nothing at all, easy.

I had three concerns before coming here so i'll address these as you might be thinking along the same lines: 1: The misses would get bored whilst i went surfing: Not an issue and she's already asking when we can go back. Other than Frigates the surf trips will typically be for 2-3 hours first/last thing leaving plenty of time... More
