Matamanoa Island Resort is an isolated, adults-only retreat in Fiji where private plunge pools, privacy and comfort are the order of the day.
Whether you arrive by water taxi, speedboat or helicopter, Matamanoa Island Resort – to the far west of Fiji in the Matamanoa Archipelago – is sure to impress. With all but entry-level rooms benefitting from their own private plunge pool, garden and terrace, plenty of onsite activities for everybody and an irresistible spa, housed in a multi-story treehouse, Matamanoa Island Resort feels as luxurious as it does individual.
All guestrooms and villa options at Matamanoa Island Resort, Fiji, are well-sized and tastefully decorated in a local style of exposed beams, brightly coloured cushions and traditional ornaments. The entry-level rooms are well located, with a private furnished terrace and good floorplan. However, the beachfront villas and bures go one step further with their private plunge pools, separate lounge areas and garden. If looking for that extra independence, comfort and privacy, these are the accommodation options to go for, though if seeking to spend most of your time out and about around the resort or hopping between islands on a day trip, the entry-level rooms work just as well.
Description, Services & Facilities
Striking a fine balance between adults-only indulgence, plentiful outdoor activities and a handful of truly unique features, Matamanoa Island Resort is a fantastic all-round option for your luxury trip to Fiji. Here, days can be spent snorkelling or scuba diving the colourful reefs which surround the island, trying your hand at beach soccer, jet skiing, sea canoeing, tennis or even coconut bowling, among countless other fun-filled pursuits. Then, for something truly unique, swim out to the unmissable Cloud 9 Floating Platform and enjoy a cold beer, cocktail or wood-fired pizza in the middle of the ocean; bliss.
Back at Matamanoa Island Resort itself, make your way to the superb Veidomoni Spa, ascend a wooden staircase through the trees and treat yourself to an aromatherapy massage, reflexology treatment or cleansing ritual, all in the most natural of surroundings. This is certainly a high-end Fiji hotel who put rest and recuperation very high up on their priority list. Throughout the day, Matamanoa’s restaurant is a delight of alfresco dining, sea views and fresh flavours, while some of the real treats lie in the beachfront villas, guestrooms and bures. Here, traditional décor and artworks meet comfortable mod-cons and, if staying in one of the higher category options, a patch of manicured lawn, daybeds and a private plunge pool, everything you need for that dreamy Fijian holiday.
