Our son and his fiance got married in a ceremony at Matei Pointe Resort. The hotel staff handled all the arrangements. From the time we arrived we felt as though we were family. Their service was more than just accommodating.... they genuinely cared about us.
We were blown away by the beauty of the site from the very moment we arrived. The views from the bures were spectacular. In the morning we would awaken early, step outside our rooms and see the glorious sunrise. In the evening, from the same vantage point we could see the sunsets. We've never been in a location so beautiful. The grounds were exquisitely groomed. I can't even begin to describe the unique floral arrangements that they pulled together so magically on the days preceding the ceremony.
The day of.....we were all relaxed having had massages in the morning. We knew all would be taken care of. All the participants in the choirs and dances were local people who shared their talents and culture with us and made us feel so welcome. The lovo or feast that followed was delicious and all of our newfound friends helped us celebrate. The whole experience was truly magical. The bride and groom were thrilled with the ceremony and were sent off with leis on their surfing/diving honeymoon.
In addition to the wedding ceremony, we enjoyed hiking, snorkeling, visiting local villages on Taveuni and other islands and kicking back to enjoy the slower pace of the Fijian islands. We will always treasure the warmth and friendliness of the Fijian people. We highly recommend Matei Pointe Resort for a relaxing South Pacific experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Matei Pointe is located on the very tip of Taveuni, Fijis' most beautiful island. The Garden Island. We are surrounded by water on 3 sides. The sun rises over the ocean on our Eastern Beach and sets back over the water on our Western Beach for awesome sunrises and sunsets! After many years serving the tourism industry, we have recently closed our facilities to fully renovate the Bure and the main house. We hope to re-open mid 2016. Keep in touch. ... more less
