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.

"Beautiful Island, Wonderful People"
What a place! Pulling up to Matamanoa is akin to pulling up into a postcard. The island is simply gorgeous, and the common areas of the resort that meet you leave no choice but to take a deep breath and enjoy the phenomenal decision you made to end up there. My wife and I recently stayed at Matamanoa for 4 nights to start off our honeymoon, and elected to stay in a garden room in order to upgrade at our next resort. The room itself was very practical, but with just a front patio and the desire to keep the shutters closed for privacy and temperature regulation, we found little desire to spend much time there- which is perfectly fine when Fiji is outside. We did hang out in a beachfront burre for a while with new friends, and with the plunge pool, daybed, and view centric layout, we were missing out on some peaceful relaxation time by opting for the garden room. The one qualm with the beachfront burres is regarding privacy. They are well thought out and designed, but it is certainly not seclusion, but you shouldn't really be expecting that anyhow. The real treat of Matamanoa, however, is the people. I can't speak highly enough of the staff, who genuinely felt like family after our 5 days there. Each employee we met always met us with a smile and a greeting, and more than that, with the desire to get to know us- if that is what you want. We had great conversations with many of them and we had never felt so welcomed as we did there. I can honestly say that we will strive to go back there just to visit with them again. Do keep in mind however, that you get out what you put in. So if you want a more private trip with your travel partner, they are happy to take care of you with minimal interaction as well. Now my only complaint with the resort is the pricing of the food. It is highly overpriced for what you receive, period. I certainly understand the dynamics of provisions an competition when you're on an island, but the portions and quality of the entrees were nowhere near justified in their price. For such a genuine resort, I wish they would take less advantage of their situation and charge reasonably. One evening, I ordered the coconut prawns for around $20USD, and received 4 medium shrimp sized prawns. It was simply price gouging and aggravating, especially considering the next resort we stayed at charged about the same for food and provided world class meals. All that being said, they are and island and a resort and are free to charge as they see fit and justified, but for my experience it was a bit extreme. But a few dollars here and there should not dissuade you from visiting this incredible resort, and from going diving with Trev and Em. We got our PADI Open Water certification with them and can not recommend them highly enough. Check out their own reviews under Deep Blue Diving and Water Sports.
"Awesome Place - Book a trip there, do it now!"
Stunning island, great diving, great food, fantastic people. The island itself is beautiful & the rooms are great value for the price you pay. BUT - The best thing about the island is the people, the staff are very friendly. If you enjoy a drink or two after a hard day on the beach then look for Sia & Joe behind the bar. Each evening after the dining room closes Gabi & Seo pull out the guitars and host a singalong, their repertoire is huge and if (by chance) they don't know a song the will learn it for you the next day and play it that night! The resort is small and intimate but still offers the choice of socialising with other guests of being alone if you feel the need. The water life is great and you can snorkel to your level of fitness or experience, they will even put non swimmers in a life jacket and show them the ropes. For the more experienced there are turtles and reef sharks (harmless) 20 meters from the beach. Great place - going back next year.
"Best Vacation EVER"
I don't even know where to start. From my arrival and greeting (complete with a beach welcoming ceremony and fresh fruit juice / cool cleansing towel) to my very tearful departure, I was immediately treated like family at the resort. My room was beautiful and fully accommodated my needs (I know people like to go on and on about the beachfront Bures, but my room was R4 and it took me 40 seconds to walk to the beach; I'm happy I saved my money on the room so I could buy things / do the many excursions available); I found the complimentary breakfast well stocked and prepared; the lunch and dinner options were various and delicious. The service of the ENTIRE resort staff (from maintenance, housekeeping, reception, activities, dining) was impeccable and professional. By my second day staff members recognized me and knew my name, giving a very welcome and personal touch that you don't find too often nowadays. It was my first time to Fiji and I am SO glad I chose this resort to stay at. Everything was perfect and I couldn't have wished for a more better place to stay. 4 days was not enough and I am already planning on spending 2 weeks here next year! Thank you to the entire Matamanoa Resort Staff for giving me memories that I will never forget....see you soon!!!
"No refunds although I cancelled 1 month in advance with a very good reason"
I had to cancel my reservation 1 month in advance because I found out I was pregnant and they do not recommend to go to Fiji while pregnant because of the virus Zika. I informed them as soon as I found out but they refused to refund the hotel room charges for the 3 nights I had reserved. This hotel is expensive so it is a lot of the money lost. I do not think it is good practice so early in advance and with a good reason. I had also reserved 4 nights on Navini and they had a better service. They refunded me immediately except a small (and acceptable) administrative fee. They will be my first choice next time.
"Had the most relaxing, enjoyable holiday"
Our family of 6 stayed on Matamanoa in January to celebrate my mothers birthday. It was everything we could hope for and more. From beginning to end the whole experience was incredible. Snorkling is amazing, private plunge pools and day beds a luxury, and friendly staff who provided great service during our stay. I would recommend Matamanoa to anyone and would also love to return in the future. Thank you for a great holiday.
