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

My family had a wonderful time at Matanivusi! The Fijian staff are so friendly and we enjoyed every minute we stayed with them. They took such good care of us, especially our two children ages 9 and 10. We had so much fun snorkeling and surfing together with Tevu and Lesi. And, the food was so amazing! We all enjoyed...

The resort setting is exquisite with tropical rain forest around you and the stunning Pacific Ocean out the front. From the moment you drive into the resort you are greeted by a friendly & caring team focussed on ensuring your stay is a quality one from start to finish. The food is delicious with three plentiful meals served each day.... More

What more could I say, we have been there twice and looking at the third visit. Staff are great and super friendly, have met lots of similar minded interesting people staying there. A little piece of paradise.

Adorable Bura's to sleep and relax in, on the beach in amongst a tropical jungle! What more could a surfers wife need? Husband loved the access to the waves everyday and wife and... More

A beautiful resort on the coral coast with everything you could possibly dream of... this resort has everything for play (snorkels, SUPS, kayaks etc) and all you need to pack are your surf boards, swimmers and camera!.. I love how each villa is separate yet if you need they also offer joining rooms. It is built where the rainforest meets... More
