The best hospitality we have ever experienced. My partner and I were married at the resort alongside 10 close family members, the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the best day imaginable, a plethora of surprises was uncovered, beginning with an elaborate set-up beneath the fig tree and it kept coming from there, sounds cliche but...

We stayed with our 3 year old son and it is by far the best place we have ever stayed at as far as the staff go. They are unbelievably friendly, and the resort is small enough its feels like you are visiting friends on a surf holiday. They were constructing a yoga facility below a huge tree canopy and...

A dream come true! Every aspect of our trip was wonderful at Matanivusi. The resort is very intimate and primarily caters to surfing on local reef breaks or a bit further our at Frigates. The local boat drivers take great care of their guests. You basically just need to decide each day whether you'd like to go on a surf...

We are not surfers, but went to help celebrate a surfer friend's "significant birthday". The accommodation was special, beautifully appointed and with a position to die for - nestled in the rainforest and coconut palms and only 4 steps to the beach. We found plenty to do (snorkelling, kayaking, walking, visiting the local village and kinder) when we chose, the...

Had a great stay with Brian and Donna over Easter. Rooms were great, Food was even better and got some good waves. Plenty to do if the waves are flat. My Girlfriend and I only stayed three nights and wish we'd stayed longer! Will be going back soon.

I recently holidayed here with my partner and his family (brother and father) and their partners. All the men surf and it worked out perfectly, while they got up early and went surfing the girls would sleep in and have brunch. Then the staff would come and see what activities you would like to do, fishing, snorkelling, plantation walk, hill...

My husband and I spent a week at Matanivusi for our honeymoon, and it was perfect. We were there to surf, and that's what we got to do! In between great waves we enjoyed fantastic food, really friendly staff and lots of relaxation time (including awesome massages by Suzie). The bures are simple but clean and have a great bathroom....

I spent a week at Mantanivusi with my daughter in January. It was the most relaxing holiday I have had. The food was great, location is amazing and the staff made us feel very welcome. It was nice to be greeted each morning by name and a big smile. I am not a surfer but enjoyed hearing all the stories...
