I write this review reluctantly as I want to keep this little gem all to myself.
I have travelled a fair amount and to a couple of Pacific Island but NOTHING can describe this untouched paradise. From stepping off the plane to the smiling Matavai staff, to the warm reception from the GM at the meet and greet drinks by the pool bar, I have never felt so welcomed.
The concierge, reception staff and waiters at the restaurant were helpful, personable and quick to share their local hot spots and give me some history about the island.
Being on a small, isolated tropical island isn't for everyone and I think that is the beauty of this place. Chasm's to yourself, friendly locals and limited shopping opportunities.
The smiles and open communication really were a testament to Matavai Resort and the service standard at the resort.
