Enjoyed every moment on the island from the moment we stepped foot on it. The staff made the stay even more enjoyable. They made us feel welcomed and always greeted us by our names. My wife was given a flower to put on her ear at every meal which was great. The cold towels were great before meals as it...

We loved every moment. The staff are amazing, the restaurant food, the room, the vibe - all was perfect. Can't wait to go back. Don't worry about staying in Nadi or the Coast, just come straight here and enjoy every minute in paradise, with no screaming kids!

Definition of a Fijian tropical island. 42km off the mainland, a short 15 minutes by helicopter (weather permitting) or and hour & a half by Island hopping catamaran. This place is where honeymooners from all over the world flock. No kids allowed here. Accommodation - skip the "resort rooms" - they're just basic and not worth the effort. If you...

We started our 2 week fiji holiday at Shangri-la Coral Coast and what a disappointment it was. We left upset and deflated and in fact were starting to want to go home. I remember reading a couple of the 'negative' reviews on Matamanoa before we came and on the journey there I doubted our decision (purely because of our bad...

I have never stayed in a hotel which have this kind of a unprofessional manager in the world. It is almost "if she is talking, she is lying". I will advise not to visit this place until a professional manager who cares about the customers start working here. Why would I never go back this place: 1-As you know, this...

Bula Peace A, Wow such a long review, it took me almost as much time to read the review as it took you to post it, stayed last year in November, posted this year in January. I will attempt to address the points you have raised, but I must firstly say that you certainly have lowered your standard or personality...

Very fun vacation spot. A small, casual island with beautiful reefs for snorkeling and a wonderful dive shop for scuba services (see review of Deep Blue Fiji). Beautiful swimming pool, good food, and comfortable accommodations made for a great visit and vacation. International guests make for a very multi-cultural experience.

Matamanoa  (Reviews are based on how well a hotel met an advertised standard, and not based on class of accommodation) Matamanoa was not perfect. In fact, during the first 24 hours I wondered if I'd made a bad mistake. Thirteen family and friends arrived on Christmas Day, and the rooms were a bit mixed up and the Christmas dinner (with...

We spent 4 nights here in december 2016 and found it to be an incredible experience. The staff make you feel like part of the family and welcome you with open arms and warm hearts. They are very friendly and dedicated to their work, i guess this is due to the resort not being owned by a large chain like...

Matamanoa Island Resort was the 2nd (and last) stop of our honeymoon in Fiji. Pulling up to the stunning island surrounded by the bluest water I have ever seen and being greeted by the staff singing a welcome song to you on the beach was a memory that I will cherish forever. This resort is top notch. It's gorgeous inside...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Matamanoa Island rated 4 star, is an intimate and secluded, adults only Fijian Resort. We are set in the beautiful Mamanuca Islands approximately 30 kilometers west of Nadi International Airport - experience a true gift of nature. The Island boasts a volcanic cone jutting out of the azure waters of this unspoiled marine sanctuary. Clad with native bush and palm trees, the brilliance of the vegetation contrasts magnificently with the white curved sandy beaches and pristine coral reefs. Combined with nature, we have created a haven for those who want to relinquish the pressures of a busy lifestyle. This is for those who dream of peace and tranquility. To achieve this special atmosphere, Matamanoa Island Resort has adopted a year round policy of not permitting day-trippers or children under the age of 16 years. ... more   less
