This was our third visit to Matanivusi and it just gets better and better. Previously we have been with our three boys, this time on our own and it was the perfect getaway in the lead up to Christmas. Being such a small resort means it is really personal, the friendly local staff all greet you by name and everyone goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. My husband got great surf twice a day every day - both locally and at Frigates, and we enjoyed the SUPs, snorkelling, relaxing by the pool, private yoga sessions and massages in the new Spa (highly recommended!). Brian, Donna and Tony were as welcoming as ever, and of course we loved seeing the two dogs Coolie and Burleigh again! The rooms are light and spacious, accessed along the cool jungle walkways and all with gorgeous views. The whole setting is really raw and beautiful, far from the touristy resorts of Fiji. The food is also amazing - locally produced and fresh-cooked, the only difficulty we had was choosing what to eat each meal as the options have gone from two to four! Everything was fresh and delicious, and all included in the price so you never even have to think about it. Tony surprised us on our last night with a special seafood platter (it was our wedding anniversary) / our table was set up on the new deck by the water and we needed two tables to hold all the lobster, prawns, crab and fish, it was really special. To Brian, Donna, Tony and all the staff, thank you so much for a fantastic, relaxing few days, we can’t wait to come back xxx

Fresh , fruit & coconut trees at your front door step , 10 steps away from crystal clear water , produce & fresh eggs in back garden , short boat ride to live reefs & wild sea life , Matanivusi is the ultimate experience for couples , groups or going solo. Brian & Donna have made the way of living the way it should be , they have created the Dream life style for you to experience, one you will never forget. Matavinusi is "Magical" .

I can't stop thinking of this place, it is so special. First, the people that work at Matanivusi make every day memorable with their warmth and charm. They are some of the nicest and coolest people ever. The resort is downright beautiful, especially if you love feeling like you are outdoors all the time. The rooms have high ceilings and are perfectly designed so you constantly enjoy the lush surroundings and ocean front views. The food was always delicious and fresh. It was lovely to eat with everyone at one table every night for dinner. Whatever you want to do in the ocean out front is up to you, the resort will ensure you will be safe and get you to where you need to be. This place is the best of everything if you are looking for an authentic, natural & gorgeous experience all at the same time. I can't wait to return.

My wife and I just returned to Seattle after a week at Matanivusi. It is without a doubt the friendliest place I have ever stayed. You feel like family there. I went for the surfing and Sam the excellent surf guide showed us great spots. There always was someone surfing with you so felt very comfortable at all times. The same goes for the other great activities such as snorkeling and SUP in the lagoon. I cannot attest to the scuba diving but Don, the guide, seemed a nice and knowledgable chap. My wife went for the yoga and Yvonne, the teacher, was excellent. I tried it too for the first time and she was very, very good at easing me into it. Lastly, the entire staff is so friendly and caring, it really made the trip. I have nothing but good things to say about it overall. We gladly will return one day.

This place and the people there exceed all expectations for a tropical experience. My son is an avid surfer and we both love scuba diving. Daily surf trips with Sam the exceptional surf guide to perfect lefts and scuba diving with their dive master who personally had explored and charted the many fabulous coral reef dive sites were an experience of a lifetime. My family loved the included Yoga sessions with Yvonne set in the tropical forest and the kayaking and SUP on request. Brian and Donna have created a spectacular resort with just a handful of beautifully appointed rooms, great food prepared by Bruce, and wonderful service from the friendly staff including Mili,Veli, Junior, Roco, Weis, Semile, and everyone else. If your looking for a tropical vacation, go here.
