“Love the reef and the people”
Reviewed March 26, 2006

We just came back from our honeymoon at the Matangi/Matagi Island resort. This is a great place to spend your honeymoon if you are not into the dancing, drinking, partying type of honeymoon. Also, if you are looking for a hotel room that is perfectly manicure, this is not the island. It is a bit rustic, and it is absolutely beautiful and untouched. You will find a little ants and lizards there, but hey, it is a little island, those are little creatures that living amoung us. There are roosters, toads, and land crabs. I heard the roosters, and saw the toads, I never saw the land crabs. My hubby and I have an absolutely fantastic time there.

Maggie, Bibi, Paulini, Marika(You are the man) and Kay, you are beautiful people. You made our trip feel so comfortable and my hubby was ready to stay another week, too bad I ran out of vacation days already.

There is a huge coral reef right outside of the deck from the restaurant. It is maybe 20 feets from the beach. Beacutiful, colorful corals and fishes, and creatures are everywhere.

They sing you songs and give you lei when you leave the island. They send you off like a family member. Overall, this is an amazing trip for the price. Hey they even arrange people to pick you up and take you shopping when you stay in Nadi, there are a lot of con artists. I was conned happily, it is only a little money, but we had so much fun getting conned. Hmmm Kava anyone??

By the way, the Owner of the island is a nice lady(She adopted a few dogs and animals that would otherwise by drowned), except she does yell and scold the staff, which I feel bad for the Staffs.
