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. The design is eco-friendly and thoughtful. The meals by Bruce and his staff are amazing with many options for various diets. Everyone eats dinner together which is very nice. The...
