Picture an isolated beach with palm trees reaching towards the sun, gentle waves lapping the undisturbed beach, the sun setting over the ocean horizon while you drink a cocktail in the company of charming locals who are playing their tiny guitars and singing native folk songs. That’s Matana Beach Resort—the most idyllic getaway my husband and I have ever been...

If diving is your priority, this will suit you well. The dive sites are nearly endless, you could dive here for a month and not repeat. Soft coral, hard coral, swim-throughs. And the dive sites are very close to the resort, not more than a 15 min. boat ride. Dive boat very efficient and comfortable. Dive staff is especially attentive....

Dive Kadavu is a professionally run dive center. I completed my Advanced Open Water with Dive Kadavu. I am so glad to have the Master Instructor, David Perry's guidance to complete the course. After the course, I did some great leisure dives with the awesome and professional DM Saula. 10 mins boat ride away we were at the best soft...

I heartily recommend this venue if you want to get away from the typical tourist resort thing in Fiji. There are no shops nearby (you will have to get a boat), and you will literally only have the sounds of the ocean and random animals outside at night. Food is home made and hearty. Good for the soul. If you...

Trip to resort was planned for my 30th birthday, couldn't wish a better place or better people to celebrate my entering to new decade! It was exactly what i needed, no tourist crowds. Kadavu island is very beautiful and easy reachable from Nadi with a little plane.Resort is accessible only with a short boat ride. Place is very simple and...

I have just got back from a week at Mantana Beach Resort where I stayed in a two-bedroom bungalow with a friend (Yasmine). We had such an amazing time! KADAVU: Generally speaking, if you're looking for an island on Fiji that is a way more "remote" than Nadi and has some of the most stunning beaches and reefs in the...

Have wanted to stay here for a while and glad we did even though it was a very short stay. A short but interesting flight from Nadi to Kadavu (@ 45 - 50 mins) then a short boat ride to Matana. The beach here is beautiful and the accomodation definitely family friendly. We stayed in a beachfront bure (4 of...

If you want the 5 star tourist scene, go to Denarau. If you want the real Fiji, go to Matana Beach Resort. I flew to Kadavu and was met at the airport. We got on a boat, because there’s no road to the resort. I had my own cabin (bura) 15m from the beach. Simple and clean with plenty of...

Matana Beach Resort may not be 5-star accommodation. It was better...a 5-star experience. The staff were wonderful - always helpful and chatty. The chief (from the village literally next door) - often around in the morning for a chat and to show you the wonderful Fijian Iguanas that hang out in the trees around the resort. The cooks - food...
