Travelers' Choice
Matamanoa Island rated 4 star, is an intimate and secluded, adults only Fijian Resort. We are set in the beautiful Mamanuca Islands approximately 30 kilometers west of Nadi International Airport - experience a true gift of nature. The Island boasts a volcanic cone jutting out of the azure waters of this unspoiled marine sanctuary. Clad with native bush and palm trees, the brilliance of the vegetation contrasts magnificently with the white curved sandy beaches and pristine coral reefs. Combined with nature, we have created a haven for those who want to relinquish the pressures of a busy lifestyle. This is for those who dream of peace and tranquility. To achieve this special atmosphere, Matamanoa Island Resort has adopted a year round policy of not permitting day-trippers or children under the age of 16 years.

Matamanoa was a great escape. Peaceful and so beautiful. The beachfront bure was so worth it with the plunge pool it meant we could relax in our room for the morning. But the large pool was also enjoyed a lot too especially for an afternoon cocktail. We visited the spa each day and the ladies were so wonderful and massages were fantastic and amazing views. Really loved this resort and would love to return again

We had a beach burre, so no air conditioning. The view from the burre was awesome, had fresh flowers daily and a hammock. The beach is grounded up corals so a bit scratchy...free pedicure. There’s tons of activities. My husband called the resort schedule summer camp for adults.

This idyllic south pacific island was everything we dreamed of. After a short transfer from the mainland you are greeted warmly by a charming team who are there to make your stay the very best it can be. We hired a beachfront bure and it was the best thing we did - generous well equipped room with a private deck and plunge pool, just steps away from the beautiful beach where you can watch the sun go down. Lots to do, especially if you like snorkelling or diving. The restaurant and bar will not disappoint you, a superb menu and choice served by friendly staff. Many thanks to all who made our holiday so very memorable. Vinaka vaka levu! Taranga Moli and Marama Moli! x

We spent 4 nights in this outstanding island resort! Our bure was stunning, spacious and right on the breath taking beach!!! The colours of the ocean will be forever remembered by us! The staff was great, super quiet adult only resort. It felt like we had the island to ourselves. Enjoyed a massage at the spa, hearing the waves! The guided snorkeling tour was fabulous!!!! We didn’t want to leave. We hope to be back! Thanks

I had a really lovely visit to Matamanoa island. It is beautiful and the staff are very friendly. I stayed in a villa overlooking the beautiful beach. It was amazing to wake up every morning, breathe in the beach air and walk in the warm calm clear sparkling water. The sun set over the beach in the evenings. The spa is lovely, it’s a series of almost tree houses set amongst trees overlooking the ocean. Very relaxing. I took the guided snorkel trip and the snorkelling safari trip. In fact I was late for the snorkelling safari trip and I was taken out especially. The snorkelling instructor Scobby went above and beyond to take me on a special trip later in the afternoon. Thank you so much! I was so glad he did because I saw amazing colourful coral and beautiful tropical fish, several turtles, stingray and reef sharks. He was very knowledgeable about the marine life and lots of fun, It was a beyond worth the trip and one of the highlights of my stay! The hotel is as lovely as it looks in the pictures on the website. I thoroughly recommend staying here
