We recently stayed at Matanivusi for 7 nights and we have to say it was the best holiday ever. I being a non surfer initially had reservations about staying there, but agreed with my surfing and kite surfing husband to go and it is the best decision I have ever made. From being picked up at the airport by Ronald,... More

My husband (surfer) 21 month old son and myself (non surfer) have just returned from the most amazing 10 day family holiday at Matanivusi. They made holidaying with a little one so easy and relaxing. We were looked after, but not fussed over - Donna and Brian have employed such lovely staff. It felt as though we were staying at... More

My husband and I arrived late in the evening, Brian and Donna were there to welcome, orientate and feed us! Accommodation was outstanding, our room clean, comfortable and spacious & only a few metres from the waters edge. Brian, Donna and team were friendly, accommodating and helpful, service was exemplary. Meals were varied, nourishing and tasty. We felt as if... More

This is the perfect resort to kick back and just relax. The minute we arrived we felt welcomed and well taken care of by Brian, Donna and the entire Matanivusi Staff. The accommodations were tastefully decorated and peaceful. Although we are not surfers we found many other activities to keep us busy. The snorkeling is by the far the best... More

This would have to go down as the best tropical holiday I have ever had, and I've had quite a few! There were 8 of us holidaying to celebrate my husbands 40th birthday, and every one of us are in agreement about this resort. Amazing accomodation, friendly and welcoming service, delicious food and plenty to do. While the boys were... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this resort during our first trip to Fiji. We couldn't have asked for more from our stay and I can't say enough about the personal service. Brian and Donna and the whole staff made us feel so welcome from the first minute to the very last. The room was beautiful and private, and... More

All we have to say is 8 days was not enough! From the moment my wife and I got there we felt like we've been there forever. Donna, Brian and staff were so hospitable and accommodating, we felt like part of the family. They had a bottle of Champagne on ice for us on our arrival. Surf breaks were empty... More

Nice Place, Nice staff, but what poor value for Value for money.. In fact almost no value for money. You pay a huge amount of money for an "Exclusive" eco resort with direct access to excellent surf breaks.. Well, don't believe it. I'm terribly disappointed i spent my holiday there, when i could have spent the same money for 5... More

dnbfj, Owner at Matanivusi Surf Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for the feedback regarding your holiday. I’m sorry we didn’t meet your expectations. I would like to respond to some of your statements. Soft drinks are priced at FJ$3.50 each, which is equivalent to AU$1.95, not $5. When trolling, the boat needs to go slowly, otherwise the tackle will break the surface and not ‘entice’ the fish to...
