We highly recommend the Matavai while staying in Niue. The staff are exceptional, always pleasant and willing to assist. They are keen to pass on their local knowledge which is invaluable for exploring the island. The location is perfect and the resort is pleasant, neat and tidy. Amazing views of the coast and over the reef. A perfect place to... More

Our group of 6 enjoyed the relaxed stay for a week. Despite some noise from the extension work underway during the day it was really enjoyable. Plenty to see and do around the island. Clear water makes snorkeling so vivid and easy. Half dozen whales sighted as a bonus

So disappointed this time around with the customer service. Stayed here two years ago and absolutely loved it from the ocean view room to the friendly staff. This time around we didn't book a room but went for happy hour with some family by the time my first cocktail arrived happy hour was nearly over having waited 45 minutes for... More

A week in Niue and at the Scenic Matavai Resort is like a lifetime of yoga............leave your electronic devices in your room and slip into island time. This place is full of genuinely caring and kind staff lead by a really sharp GM, SImon Jackson. The Scenic group is a class act and no wonder this place has places yet... More

The hotel staff and management could not be more friendly and helpful. Rooms were always clean and done daily. It's a shame the food and restaurant service was not up to par it's letting the rest of the hotel down. More thought needs to go into offering tastier food. We found it very bland and the staff would bring out... More

We were staying in the north of the island but for my partner's birthday we chose to visit Matavai (35 min drive south) for the uga presentation and for the cocktails and dinner. We were not disappointed. We sipped our drinks as the sun set into the sea- a VG place to observe this out on their decking. Then we... More

We stayed for one week just for a break. Wish we had come during whale watch season as this resort is said to be a perfect viewing location (we plan to come back for that next year hopefully). The cliff top room was wonderful and could see the dolphins in the bay a couple of times from our room. Food... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Scenic Matavai Resort is Niue's premier accommodation option. Designed to take full advantage of its unique environment, our resort blends into the breathtaking landscape of coral outcrops, coconut palms, rainforest, and tropical flowers. Perched over the Pacific Ocean, the resorts' cliff-top deck provides a vantage point from which to watch the resident turtles surface, spinner dolphins patrol, and humpback whales cruise right past the resort.Matavai Resort has recently undergone a multimillion dollar refurbishment and expansion to bring it's exceptional facilities in line with the very best on offer in the Pacific. The new building blends contemporary comforts and luxury with a classic, timeless style. Guests can enjoy a meal at our highly regarded restaurant, soak up the sun on the expansive cliff top decks, or relax after a long day exploring at the poolside bar. Scenic Matavai Resort Niue is the perfect place to base your Niuean adventure. The resort is 8.5 Km from Alofi Town Centre, and whilst airport transfers are included in your stay there is no public transport or taxi service on Niue so we highly recommend arranging a rental vehicle before you arrive. ... more   less
