Perfect in every way.

If you are searching for a peaceful place that has friendly staff, a beach bure literally 3metres from the beach, and a reef directly at your doorstep Matamonoa is worth every dollar. Food was top notch every day, we opted to only have breakfast included and paid for dinner (lunch never needed if you ate heaps at the Fiji style buffet breakfast). Plenty of activities for those who like to keep busy, kayaks, hobi cats, small mountains to hike, chess, tennis, ping pong, volleyball and heaps of other Fijian activities the staff put on. Or you can simply lounge around in your Bure and all the other comfortable lounges around the island. Spectacular views from everywhere you sit. Perfect white sand and crystal clear water with numerous shades of blue. It was sunny for the whole 7days we visited and it really was perfect to relax the mind, body and soul. Also had an amazing massage in an amazing location, definitely a must do if you're an early riser is the couples sunrise massage.

Romantic, stylish, with attention to detail

Pros: Modern stylish decor of rooms and common areas Private setting of beachfront bungalows and dive pool
Cons: Variety of evening meals Island hopping trip could be improved but the staff said they were on to that!
Location: Fantastic location, easy to get to/from from Denarau by ferry Surrounded by coral reef with great snorkeling and proximity to other islands
We spent the first week of our honeymoon at Matamanoa and were very pleased with our choice. Right from the outset we were impressed: the arrival was extremely welcoming and organised, we were shown to our rooms promptly which were beautifully styled and comfortable and given an overview of all the great things the resort had to offer! We had a beachfront bungalow (which was definitely worth the extra money!) with it's private dive pool, amazing views out to the sea and full view of the sunset and real sense of privacy. There were some great activities and water sports available at the resort. We had fun with the mini-cat and really enjoyed the snorkeling. The island is right on the reef and there is plenty of coral and colourful fish to see just off the beach. We took a day tour of other islands, which wasn't as enjoyable as we had hoped but the staff were very attentive to our feedback and said they would be reviewing the trip. The snorkeling on the other island wasn't nearly as good as that on Matamanoa! Perhaps our only small negative was with the evening meals, not their quality but variety. The menu, which didn't change over the course our stay, was quite limited and only had a special on some evenings. We would like to have seen more local cuisine options and fresh seafood. The quality of the meals was very good though. Overall a fantastic stay and we'd definitely recommend to our friends and family.
