Once you commit to the effort of getting away from it all, you want to find the place you've been seeking - Matangi Resort is it! Beautiful meals, lovely staff, great owner and caretaker.
We stayed for 5 nights, snorkeled each day, relaxed, read, went to the spa. My boyfriend scuba dived each morning while I went for a hike.
It's just a great place to unwind.

We just returned from a week at Matangi Island celebrating our 27th anniversary. We enjoyed a wonderful week - exceeding our expectations!!!

We have to say that the Matangi Website, reviews on trip advisor and other sites were truly spot on!!! From our bure, to the meals as well as the activities available- we call it relaxing bliss! We purchased the “romance package” as well which included a private dinner, couples massage and picnic at horseshoe Bay - each a wonderful experience. We enjoyed our time at Horseshoe Bay so much we booked a second trip.

Our special thanks go to John (bartender), Perina (in the spa), BiBi (the dining room) and Tim (activities). These outstanding individuals (and others) went above and beyond and made our week phenomenal!

We highly recommend Mantangi Resort and hope to return!!!!

This is genuine paradise! Loved everything about the resort and the kind, gentle Fijians who did everything to make us feel like royalty. From the wet landing on the lovely beach being serenaded with beautiful voices accompanied by guitar and ukulele, served with carved out coconuts with a straw and a flower and fresh coconut water, breakfast with fresh papaya, pineapple, watermelon, fresh baked pastries, and a custom hot dish, and then upgraded by Sirelee to the treehouse suite! And that was our first hour on the island. We came to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary and it was just amazing!

I purchased the "Romance package" through Costco and it exceeded my expectations with a half-day picnic on the private Horseshoe Bay, couple's massage, and private seafood supper on the beach on our last night there. The chef even baked a German chocolate cake at my husband's mention to celebrate our anniversary night. White linen tablecloths, china, flowers, gourmet food, snorkeling twice a day in the amazing coral reef that surrounds the island, swimming, hiking, watching the sunset on the beach. But the very best was the Fijian people! Loved them!! Went to Church in a 10 house village on Qamea Island, toured the village of Togo on Qamea where we were welcomed by the villagers, the villagers came to the resort to entertain, and we were greeted with "Bula" wherever we went.

This is a private island with just Matangi Resort with bure accommodations for 13 couples. The couples ranged from newlyweds to olders like us and were from Australia, New Zealand, USA, and France when we were there.

Loved it! Still dreaming about my time there!!

Room Tip: Treehouse suite was fabulous!

We stayed for 2 weeks and found it hard to leave . Right from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by the genuinely friendly staff and felt a part of island life . The wet edge pool , white beaches , tropical rainforest , hammocks , dining area and beautiful accomodation ensured a luxury experience whilst being very much in harmony with nature . We enjoyed snorkelling, kayaking, walking as well as just relaxing . The food was great , sunsets sublime .. but it was the staff that made Matangi heaven on earth .

I don't take the time to write reviews often, but I had to write this one! We took our 10 year anniversary trip earlier this month and Matangi Island did not disappoint. They have nailed down the perfect combination of luxury and traditional Fijian culture all rolled into one. Everything had a fantastic attention to detail, from the thatch burre's to the variety of available activities (most included in your stay), to the amazing food (every meal was beyond delicious, healthy, and different each day). The outdoor showers were a favorite and the owners and staff are so friendly they make you feel like family. Go on the local private hiking trails, check out Horseshoe bay (this one is a MUST) and check out the local school and village where many of the staff members are from on the village tour (you can donate to the local school at the hotel). I highly recommend this resort, and that's saying a lot because I am fairly picky when it comes to good food and cleanliness!

Room Tip: Treehouse was our favorite room! We stayed in both the treehouse and the beachfront. Both had benefi...
