I've been to surf camps around the globe with amazing waves and I've been to resorts around the world with great accommodation. Mantanavusi combines the best of both or should I say all worlds! The water is crystal clear great diving snorkeling and paddle boarding....Did I mention the surf? There are four great breaks within a 5 minute boat ride and one world class break Frigates Pass thirty minutes from the resorts beach by boat. Those of you who couldn't make it to cloud break won't be disappointed! The friendly staff is constantly manning the boats in hopes that you aren't to tired to have just one more epic session. There are so many great things to say about this resort it's going to be hard to say it all without writing a novel. The cuisine is both amazingly flavorful and cultural. Breakfast leaves you with the choice of the basic continental fares such as cereal or fresh fruit...or for the hardier of appetite non/post dawn patrol type a short order cook is standing by to whip you up an omelet, pancakes, eggs, or anything else you may desire. For lunch and dinner, you have a choice of a vegetable fish or meat dish. Dinner is served family style which is surprisingly a really great experience! The resort is small maybe nine bungalows in all stretched Swiss family Robinson style through the jungle connected by a suspended anchored bridge weaving its way from one bungalow to the next through the jungle. The roofs of the bungalows collect precious rain water and deposit it in a water tank outside each room. This water is used for showers and toilets. each bungalow has a back door with steps leading to the crystal clear perfectly calm tropical pacific. The guests are like family, you surf, dive, swim, and dine together everyday. You meet some very very interesting people not the least of whom are Donna and Brian the resorts owners and founders. The idea of meeting a bunch of new people on vacation may sound a bit daunting, however I assure you it is not. This is about the least uncomfortable place I've ever been. Everybody from guests to staff is extremely accommodating and the vibe is complete relaxation. Mantanavusi is a bit like a good dream you slip easily into and never want to awake from. This is an amazing place as it embodies a number of individual experience possibilities. I would take my family here as its a great place to relax and experience serene Fiji, i would come here with my significant to enjoy a relaxing romantic hideaway. I'd come solo for the surf and the adventure, and last but not least I would come with a group of friends to enjoy the waves culture and adventure together. Thanks Mantanavusi for the amazing Fijian experience!.
