My family stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. It was our first trip with our 4 month old, and we all had a good time. My husband surfed and got some great waves, whilst I relaxed at the resort with bubs. It has a very laid back feel, small numbers and well set up to make you feel... More

We had a lovely, relaxing time in this secluded location. We were greeted at the airport by that beautiful fijian smile of our driver and that set the mood for the rest of our visit. The staff were particularly attentive and showed great warmth and hospitality. Lovely food and the rooms were beautifully presented and serviced each day. Lots of... More

Want to surf at 7am? No problems, boat is ready. Winds have changed ... fishing rods are ready to go. Really hungry... 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

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
