Stayed at Matavai as part of a wedding group and so glad I did. Don't usually stay at resorts, so have little to compare with but found Matavai to be a wonderful spot. Loved my clean, spacious room with a view across the garden to the horizon and the stunning sunsets. The buffet breakfast with fresh fruits and other selections...

What a wonderful holiday and location. It had it all!!!!! The hospitality was wonderful; rooms all recently refurbished; and decision making was a breeze. We swam with a humpback whale and her cafe (amazing) and the weather was sooo warm; Niue and the Matavai in particular must be added to your bucket list! Thank you we will be back.

Place is just lovely with views to ocean, dolphins and whales. Staff so nice and flexible, they listen your wishes and do the best they can, you will feel comfortable. Waves cause noise, that is only minus in the place. Rooms are very clean and food good, a perfect place as your basement when exploring the island.

Thank you for reviewing Matavai. The resort sits cliff top and the waves can take a little getting used to however while most guests are lulled to sleep by the ocean's rhythm we are happy to relocate guests to back rooms if the issue persists - we are appreciate that everyone comes to Niue to relax and rest and are...

I had the opportunity to visit Niue and the renown Matavai Resort early August 2014 and was amazed with their hospitality. The food was great! Serene atmosphere...there was a band playing that night (Friday) and halfway through their performance we joined in the singing and eventually took over the entertainment part even though we were patron/ guest!!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Scenic Matavai Resort is Niue's premier accommodation option. Designed to take full advantage of its unique environment, our resort blends into the breathtaking landscape of coral outcrops, coconut palms, rainforest, and tropical flowers. Perched over the Pacific Ocean, the resorts' cliff-top deck provides a vantage point from which to watch the resident turtles surface, spinner dolphins patrol, and humpback whales cruise right past the resort.Matavai Resort has recently undergone a multimillion dollar refurbishment and expansion to bring it's exceptional facilities in line with the very best on offer in the Pacific. The new building blends contemporary comforts and luxury with a classic, timeless style. Guests can enjoy a meal at our highly regarded restaurant, soak up the sun on the expansive cliff top decks, or relax after a long day exploring at the poolside bar. Scenic Matavai Resort Niue is the perfect place to base your Niuean adventure. The resort is 8.5 Km from Alofi Town Centre, and whilst airport transfers are included in your stay there is no public transport or taxi service on Niue so we highly recommend arranging a rental vehicle before you arrive. ... more   less
