For the third year in a row Eileen & Serge have managed to mesmerise us with their love, charm and passion! We travel for a living and have seen our fair share of world class hotels but nothing compares to Fenua Mata'I'Oa. We arrived to the most intimate welcome with ukuleles, dancing and cocktails. We hugged and cried and felt... More

Boutique style hotel sort of bed and breakfast. Ok location next to intercontinental (bit of a walk). If your looking for luxury spend a little more. Great staff though very friendly and the verandah area had lovely view of the lagoon. Nice clean room and the flower displays were amazing. About an hour by car from the airport.

The location was great, prime location next to the lagoon and the water was pleasant and allowed easy access to the Rays and Shark feeding. The service was outstanding our room was always serviced and our needs were always considered. Eileen's place is charming and has a nice colonial touch, defiantly worth remembering. The only negatives were that The meals... More

This hotel is located in a beautiful environment, where we found fantastic accomodation and lot of kindness from the attentive staff. The most romantic dinner at the beach we have ever had and which we never forget (extraordinary service, quality, eye-catching table decoration, mouthwatering dishes).

What a lovely surprise we had staying at this wonderful establishment. Eileen and her extremely attentive staff were fantastic! So very glad to have stayed here. We enjoyed every single meal here and no meal was a disappointment. Our room was so very charming...not to effeminate not to masculine. Eileen, who is always smiling, is an absolute wonderful host.

We arrived after a very long journey and were greeted by Eileen and her staff who took our bags and looked after us. Very warm welcome and quite surreal stepping into this lush oasis. I would say this is more like a private villa with rooms than a hotel as it is very small, intimate and cosy. The room itself... More
