A great place to stay when you want to kick back and relax. We were well looked after by the Staff who were both friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included but the 2 restaurants appeared to be open when we needed them. There was even a Pool Bar. The rooms were well serviced - ours was an Ocean View room.... More

a good opportunity to see this skilled group perform under the stars on the expansive balcony at the Matavai Resort, overlooking the sea. A daytime visit often manages to coincide with the whales swimming by between August and October each year.

A truly spectacular resort. I can not fault it. It has amazing views; watching the whales and dolphins frolicking in the ocean from your room. Enjoy a cocktail by sunset and mingle with other guests. The staff, cleanliness etc etc are all extremely top class. The food is very good. We did start ordering the cooked breakfasts as we got... More

This resort is in an amazing spot. Top of a cliff, so full on views of the ocean. Wonderful sunsets while sipping wine in the pool bar. Whales close to shore were a real bonus, as was the school of dolphins which performed most days. The staff were fabulous, the rooms well appointed, loved every minute there.

Stunning views from the room and from the restaurant, comfortable and convenient for the dive shop next door. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant gets busy at some meal times and cannot always cope with task loading and fulfilling orders.

My husband and I stayed for 7 nights in July. We were welcomed with a lovely coconut rum drink and found our way to our superior cliff top room which was a nice size, was clean and modern.

This is a lovely hotel. The people are friendly, the food good, very clean, nice gardens etc.... The only downside is that the pool isn't heated. It would have been great to swim but the water was freezing cold. The children 12 & 10 enjoyed it though. I had thought I'd be lounging by the pool swimming, but the don't... More

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.
