Our Stay, my beautiful girlfriend Mercedes and I, was personified by personalised service from all staff in an environment that offers a touch that says every person that enters is special. So many people to mention making the time special, we especially thank Brian & Donna for their spectacular location that melds into the environment inconspicuously, Mark & Ledge for... More

After traveling all around the worls for 4 decades, this is an amazing place on the planet. I have so much respect for the owners that built something so unique, respecting nature, the environment, the reefs. Matanivusi is a must visit and a must stay, hidden in the jungle top beach front resort, eco sustainable, properly equipped. Prices are good... More

When we arrived we were welcome by Brian and lunch was provided after a tour of the Eco Resort. The staff were the friendliest I have encountered in a long time. Nothing was a problem. The next day we headed out to Frigates which is a punchy left hand reef break in the middle of nowhere. It was pumping 4... More

This is a hidden gem an hour and 10 min from Suva. We had an epic stay in this chilled eco resort with opportunity to do pretty much whatever you feel like doing. Probably the best surf accommodation on the mainland with a boat pretty much leaving every morning early for frigates. However, no issue for our 14 yr. old... More

My partner and I spent a few days here in May, and it was incredible. Some highlights: The food: We LOVED the communal dinners. With only about a dozen guests there, we had a chance to socialize over some very tasty meals under the moonlight. For our wedding night, the staff set up a private candlelit dinner under the enormous... More

Just arrived home after 5 nights at Matanivusi. My husband surfed most of the time while I spent time paddle boarding, snorkelling, doing yoga, visiting the local village, playing volleyball with the locals and relaxing by a beautiful pool with an amazing view. There was so much to do for a non surfer. The super friendly staff also contributed highly... More

From a surfers point of view - Brian, Donna and their local team surpassed my expectations when it came to surf knowledge of the local surf locations. During our stay, given winds, we only surfed 2 of the many location. Early morning sessions at Shifty's followed by a boat trip out to Frigates which is situated 45 min boat trip... More
