Over Matamanoa Island Resort
Matamanoa Island ligt op ongeveer 30 kilometer westelijk van Nadi op Viti Levu. Een ongerept, paradijselijk eiland omgeven door turkoois-blauw water en begroeid met palmwouden. Het briljante groen van de vegetatie, het sprankelend blauw van het zeewater en het helderwitte zand van het strand vormen een schitterend natuurlijk kleurenpalet. Het brengt u direct in de vakantiestemming zodra u arriveert. De serene sfeer van het resort wordt mede bepaald door het ‘no kids’ beleid. Verder is iedereen vanaf 16 jaar welkom. De dagen zijn gevuld met rust, watersporten indien u daar zin in heeft, heerlijk eten en drinken. Het resort staat bekend om de persoonlijke service. Binnen een mum van tijd wordt u aangesproken met uw naam en voor vertrekkende gasten wordt er een lied gezongen. Maar u blijft nog even, turend over zee vanuit uw hooggelegen bungalow.

"A REAL LITTLE GEM IN PARADISE"
I apologise in advance for the long review, but there is just so much to say about this little island. We just fell in love with this island resort and it's people. To put things into perspective we have previously stayed at Vomo, Likuliku, Tokoriki island resort, Malolo and Castaway island resort and the Denarau hotels. Matamanoa is not 5 star, but it doesn't pretend to be either, this island is a relaxed, understated, a barefoot beautiful island in paradise and you won't want to leave. We were welcomed very warmly by Ala and Caroline from the front office, with a refreshing drink and a run down on the island. They are so organised, welcoming and efficient, thank you ladies. Also Taka in reservations was so helpful and wonderful to communicate with, she was instrumental in helping me plan the perfect special birthday getaway for my husband. We stayed in a Bure on the sunset side B25, it is the last one up the end and has a different configuration to the other Bures it was really amazing and took our breath away when we walked in. We felt very blessed to be staying there, and we are sure the other bures are just as beautiful. It also has to be said that house keeping do an amazing job keeping the rooms pristine with fresh beautiful flowers during the day and at turn down every night. The island itself is stunning, and the staff are incredible and make you feel so welcome, just like family or an old friend. The new villas on the north side look beautiful with an equally stunning view out to other islands, and as they are a little more secluded and there aren't as many of them, this makes them a little bit more private. The restaurant was lovely with stunning views from every vantage point. Matamanoa do something special to previous island resorts we have stayed at, in that before meals they give you a refreshing hand towelette and at night they give every women either a hibiscus or frangipani to put behind the ear (very tropical) and these are really lovely touches that make them unique. Shu and Reve are the Matamano resident band members, and they are fantastic, they do such a great job entertaining everyone, they have an impressive repertoire of songs and are the loveliest guys. The food for the most part was very good and we really enjoyed it. We did full board so we didn't have to worry about how much meals were, and that allowed us to try a lot of different things on the menu. Breakfast was great every morning, loved eggs benedict and the omelettes. At lunch we particularly loved the kokoda, it was delicious and amongst other dinners the lamb curry was amazing. Rebecca, Adi and Sio were really lovely in the restaurant and bar but really all the staff are so beautiful. The day spa is in the most amazing setting perched high up on a rock face overlooking the the ocean you can't help but relax to the sounds of the waves. Deep Blue run the water sports department, they do a daily one hour snorkelling trip off the island. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of colourful coral and the abundant fish life, we were very grateful to Mini, he was wonderful & enabled us to see a turtle up close. We also booked a private beach picnic through Emma and Trev at Deep Blue for a special occasion. Mini and Mess took us in a little resort boat only 15mins to a secluded island overlooking Monuriki (where castaway was filmed), we were dropped off with a phone in case for any reason we needed to contact the resort. We had 4 wonderful hours there, which included a delicious picnic lunch with beautiful food, bottled water and a bottle of French sparkling wine. The snorkelling off this beach is some of the best we have ever seen on a beach picnic, which we have previously done at a number of other Mamanuca island resorts. Put simply this was heaven and truly made it a very special occasion and we would do it again in a heart beat. Last but certainly not least, on the last evening we did a romantic beach dinner. Now this was truly amazing everything was so beautifully done, from the setting down on the beach, to the lighting, the special service and the food. Everything about this evening made it a very special night to remember. Things that you must do are: snorkel or dive, visit the day spa, private beach picnic, and romantic beach dinner. Thank you Matamanoa and the Matamanoa family, we look forward to revisiting you in the near future and look forwards to seeing what you have done after the renovations scheduled for next year.
"Second Honeymoon to Matamanoa Island"
Having 2 small children my husband and I were looking for a peaceful quiet and relaxing quick getaway and we are so glad Matamanoa Island was our choice! The peace, serenity and the staff was 10/10 We stayed in the Villas (No 12) and this was private and cozy which was just what we were looking for. Plunge pool was fantastic, stairs straight down to quiet beach. 5 minute walk to main restraunt and bar with room service available. Food was delicious, variety to choose from. Staff were impeccable. Always smiling and would always attend to any need or request. Guided snorkling trip was fantastic and Cloud9 trip is a must! We did the romantic beach dinner which was amazing. Day spa massage view is breathtaking and one of the best massages I have ever had. After dinner games were a highlight full of laughs and fun... We were sad to leave Matamanoa and its beautiful people but we will definately return one day in the future. Vinaka Matamano Island
My husband and I recently stayed at this amazing island resort to celebrate our 55th Anniversary. Matamanoa was the first leg of an extended trip that included Australia. We were so happy that this stay was the first leg of the trip! The ferry to the island, the beautiful waters and islands we passed...all was as a beautiful dream. When we cam in view of the resort, we were almost moved to tears! From the beginning of our stay, everything went without a hitch! Our room was beautiful, as is the setting of this resort, I was swimming in the ocean within an hour of landing, and marvelling at the clean, clear waters. We liked that this resort is adults only. It made our stay so very relaxing. The breakfast buffet is wonderful: so much great fruit, yogurt, excellent coffee and I loved the porridge, too. With a good breakfast, we did not need to eat again until dinner, and the dinners were so good and beautifully cooked. The staff of the Resort is first class all the way. We never experienced such warm and genuine service as we found here. Genuine is the key word. May that never change. We were able to swim every day, both in the pool and the ocean. We kayaked. We walked. We even just 'chilled', enjoying everying about the island. We also took the 'Village' trip, and found a wonderful world in the village we visited. Thank you, Matamanoa, for making our little visit so perfet!
"Paradise with potential! "
My husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary and my husband's special milestone birthday at Matamanoa island this August. From the moment I set eyes on this island from our boat I was taken away with its sheer natural beauty. It truly is a beautiful paradise island with white sands, palm trees and clear blue waters! The welcome "Bula" song from the staff and Matamanoa's very own Fijian Warrior really make you feel welcome on this island! I also appreciated my welcome shell garland, the flower in my hair, my welcome fruit juice & refreshing towel! One of the staff receptionists gave us an introduction to the island which I found to be very informative. As we were celebrating our wedding anniversary we received a wooden plaque on the door to our garden room. We found it peculiar why our surnames (which had been spelt wrongly) were on the plaque when others had their first names on it. Although a nice touch, it would have been nice to get the spellings of our names correct. Our room was clean and and I enjoyed using the natural coconut toiletries our rooms had to offer. There are plenty of activities you can take advantage of whilst on the island like kayaking, snorkelling, swimming, tennis and table tennis! Before our holiday I was also under the impression you could paddleboard around the island but I didn't see any of these. On one of the days during our stay the rain was very bad so we made use of the board games Matamanoa had on offer as well as having a massage. Unfortunately there was not much room for all the guests to be under shelter whilst it was raining! My husband & I had gotten the spa package that offered 5 treatments between us. We opted for a sunrise massage, a sunset massage & I chose to have the papaya body scrub. Unfortunately due to adverse weather conditions we couldn't have our sunrise massage but we thoroughly enjoyed all the treatments we did have. The girls were very good and I particularly enjoyed the bamboo massage. I found some of the staff to be very friendly, always saying "Bula" to us as they passed us on the island. Unfortunately this was not the case for some of the female staff especially those that served us at mealtimes. A few members of staff looked like they didn't want to be there when taking our food orders/serving our dishes. I really feel that the customer service can be improved on for the waiting staff. Every night at dinner we would watch the staff participate in a show that comprised singing and dancing. Again some of the female staff did not look like they wanted to take part and made the show disappointing to watch. The male staff in particular were a bundle of joy to watch in the show, always giving their all! I loved the welcome song for the newcomers on the island and the goodbye song for those leaving the next day- it was a really nice touch at dinner! The food at Matamanoa was very hit and miss! My husband & I opted for full board. We enjoyed the steaks and pasta dishes but some of the other dishes were not palatable. Again this is an area that could be improved on. This island has so much potential! If the service matched the sheer beauty of this island it would be very hard to beat!
This was our second visit to Matamanoa Island and we have loved it so much we have already started planning for our return for next year. Our villa was lovely and we loved having our own plunge pool. What is so great about Matamanoa is that you can do as little as you want or participate in so many different activities. We love to interact with the staff so participated in as much as we could. Highlights were fan weaving with Chew, Coconut husking with Api and snorkelling with Mess. We stayed for 5 nights and did not have one bad meal, the chefs and kitchen staff all do such an amazing job. The risotto and the Lovo night were our favourite. We love the welcome and farewell song each night at dinner and thank you to the boys for the table serenade. Lastly the best thing about Matamanoa and the reason we will return is the fantastic staff. They are all so friendly and go out of their way to make your trip special. A big vinaka to Jonny, Sio, Chew (so funny) and all of the rest of the staff for making our trip such a memorable one. We canâ€™t wait to return to our second home. Katie and Adam
