We just got back from our honeymoon in Fiji which began with a 7 night stay at Matangi Resort. It was absolute paradise. We stayed at another resort for 5 days after and I wished we could have gone back to Matangi. I would like to respond to any of the bad reviews as I have no idea what they...

We just returned from out trip to Fiji and would first like to thank the many Fiji experts and others who assisted in answering our questions. A specific thanks to E&CinReno for their invaluable advice. We wanted to visit Fiji as we had recently returned from a trip to French Polynesia and fell in love with the South Pacific. Fiji...

Gary and I just returned from an 8 day 7 night stay at Matangi Island, and wanted to share how much we loved our visit, and of our strong intentions of returning. We loved the beauty of the island and the surrounding islands and the wonderful lush vegetation that resembles some of the beautiful plants we have in Southern California,...

We stayed at the beautiful Matangi Island for 10 wonderful days. We had an ocean front bure and loved it. It is spacious, decorated beautifully, with a refrigerator, daily (to die for) homemade cookies, coffee press, teas, fiji shower products, and an outdoor shower (that had some pressures problems and really never got too hot, really our only half complaint)....

Just came back from Matangi: Weather: It rains on this side of Fiji in May, but the rain is very quick. We had most rains at night. Frequently, we would go to dinner under bright stars, then watch rain while having dinner, and then sit outside under the stars again. Or another scenario, we would wake up to watch sunrise,...

I stayed here with my fiancé while we were on our R&R leave from the United States Army. It was an absolute paradise! A traveler had posted that the staff bothered you at your bure for nightly activities- that's definitely not true. The staff is laid back and would only come to our bure for spa treatments! The photos on...

This was the most romantic and magical trip I've ever taken. I can't say enough about the staff, the island, the Fijian people, the food. We made life-long friends on the island, as small as it is. I can't recommend it enough. It IS pricey, but if you can swing it, it's worth it.

My husband and I stayed at Matangi for 10 long nights. We also got married here. Positives first, yes the island is beautiful (but all of Fiji is) and most of the staff was extremely helpful and warm. Negatives – Well to sum it up, Matangi felt like a bad cruise ship. The idea of a secluded island is what...

We stayed 6 days in Matangi Private Island Resort then stayed 4 days in Shangri-La Fijian Resort. Food in Matangi was much much better than in Shangri-La.
