Matana Beach Resort is a small and friendly Getaway resort, located off the beaten track on the island of Kadavu. We invite you to discover the unspoilt beauty Kadavu has to offer – both underwater and on land - and enjoy a true Fijian experience.

Matana Beach Resort is conveniently located 10 minutes by boat from Kadavu airport on one of Fiji’s largest islands. Ten Beachfront and Oceanview bures provide comfortable and spacious accommodation for up to 26 guests. Our two 2-bedroom bures are ideal for families or small groups.

Kadavu Island is still untouched by major development and with two traditional villages next to the resort, this is the place to experience authentic Fijian lifestyle and culture. Visit the local school, a Sunday church service, watch a rugby game with the locals or join them for some kava.

The beautiful all-tide beach and great snorkeling sites are just steps from the bures. You will be amazed at the variety of marine life on the coral bommies off the resort beach.

DIVE KADAVU has access to all major reef systems around Kadavu: Dive at the foot of an extinct volcano, enjoy the sheltered Namalata Reef, encounter Mantas on the Great Astrolabe Reef and explore new dive sites in the Motu marine protected area. With an abundance of tropical fish, brilliantly coloured soft and hard corals, walls and swim-throughs on over 40 dive sites, you can expect the best of diving.
