Absolutely beautiful and peaceful surrounds with charming staff and helpful hosts. The charm of this resort is its intimacy as it has only 12 suites and all on th beach. Ages of guests when I holidayed with my family were between 6 months and 87 years. We all loved the friendly atmosphere and joined in the activities offered free of...

Nothing was too much trouble to organise during our stay. We had staff shimming up a coconut palm to entertain us and deliver fresh coconut milk to our door. Yoga was offered twice daily & was a highlight within this beautiful and tranquil environment. The accommodation was well designed - all with private balconies overlooking the sea. Thanks for a...

We have just returned from a seven night stay at the enigmatic Mantanivusi Surf Resort and found it very hard to disengage from the hypnotic lull of the ocean and the warm hospitality offered by the staff and board our flights to go home. My boys are 12 and 9 and my husband is a keen surfer. We were so...

Matanivusi is the most amazing surf/eco resort around. It is the perfect couples or laid back older family destination. No screaming kids club here or wild nightclubs - just awesome sunset drinks and good company! Amazing selection of waves, cool boatmen & surf guides, great food & service, beautiful rainforest setting and lots of guided activities for non-surfers. A holiday...

We spent 4 days in Matanivusi resort with my husband. He is a surfer and I am not. Both of us had a great time, him surfing and enjoying the pool, the yoga sessions (the place feels like you practice in the middle of the jungle!), the beach and the sounds of nature. All people working there, including Dona and...

I really have no words to express what this place is like. The rooms are beautiful with a secluded back porch overlooking the ocean. The grandaddy tree is jaw dropping, beautiful yoga center, pool and hot tub. Amazing surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, SUP, yoga, poolside and beachside deck for sunset happy hours. With only 12 rooms, you get to know the...

Wow. I've lived in Fiji 4 years and this is the best resort I have stayed at. I kept thinking "how thoughtful!" The staff are thoughtful, friendly, extremely helpful people.

I stayed here with a friend for a couple of days and had an amazing experience! The staff was great they always made sure that we were well taken care of. Easy access to some of the best surfing locations, paddle boarding and daily yoga classes make this place a great choice.
