Thanks to you ALL for the best New Year celebration ever. The whole resort is perfect and still getting better. The Yoga Centre, when it is finished, will be awesome as is its setting. When staying one is part of one big happy family and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable and 10 steps... More

Our stay at Matanivusi in July 2013 was one of the best holidays we've had. We travelled with our then 6 month old son and not only did we have a great time, he loved it. I can't say a bad thing about Matanivusi. The rooms were beautiful and well planned out in space and location, the food was amazing,... More

A truly relaxing weekend away. You can do as much or as little as you like. We chose to go snorkelling on Saturday morning then chill on Saturday afternoon. Sunday we went paddling up the creek. The meals were great, limited selection but fresh local ingredients cooked perfectly.

I have just returned from my second visit to Matanivusi Resort. This time I went with my Mum and daughter to celebrate my daughters 30th birthday. Once again I felt welcomed by the owners Donna and Brian and everyone made the birthday special for my daughter. The staff greeted us each morning by name and always with a smile. All... More

I have become a repeat guest of Matanivusi Resort and now I can't bring myself to go anywhere else in Fiji as I know I will only get disappointed.... Donna, Brian, Tony and the rest of the staff make you feel like you are at home, nothing is ever a problem for them and the food and accommodation is amazing.... More

The best hospitality we have ever experienced. My partner and I were married at the resort alongside 10 close family members, the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day imaginable, a plethora of surprises was uncovered, beginning with an elaborate set-up beneath the fig tree and it kept coming from there, sounds cliche but...

We stayed with our 3 year old son and it is by far the best place we have ever stayed at as far as the staff go. They are unbelievably friendly, and the resort is small enough its feels like you are visiting friends on a surf holiday. They were constructing a yoga facility below a huge tree canopy and... More

A dream come true! Every aspect of our trip was wonderful at Matanivusi. The resort is very intimate and primarily caters to surfing on local reef breaks or a bit further our at Frigates. The local boat drivers take great care of their guests. You basically just need to decide each day whether you'd like to go on a surf... More

We are not surfers, but went to help celebrate a surfer friend's "significant birthday". The accommodation was special, beautifully appointed and with a position to die for - nestled in the rainforest and coconut palms and only 4 steps to the beach. We found plenty to do (snorkelling, kayaking, walking, visiting the local village and kinder) when we chose, the... More
