My wife and I spent the first half of our honeymoon at Matang in September. It was everything we hoped for and more.

Flew from Nadi over beautiful blue water to Matei airport on an Island Hopper plane. Boarded a van and drove for a distance and boarded a boat - the adventure was just starting! Arrived at Matangi Private Island and waded from the boat to the shore to be greeted by the staff all singing a welcome song. Christine, the owner... More

We have been to Matangi resort in August for 6 nights. The resort is very nice and the service is high quality. The food is superb. So everything makes us think we have been landed in paradise except for the diving, the only reason we went there for. We had the clear feeling the dive master, Bale, didn't want to... More
