Matamanoa is a small, pristine island surrounded by crystal azure waters and sugar white sand. This boutique resort caters to adults only (16 and over) global travellers who wish to relax and unwind. 
In 2015, Matamanoa Island Resort received a Certificate of Excellence Award from Trip Advisor and was inducted into the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame.  This award showcases the level of guest enjoyment by our visitors.

Our Veidomoni Spa, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation on the island's mountain peak is a unique experience.  The treatment rooms overlook the Pacifc Ocean and the only sound you hear is birdsong and the gentle breaking of the waves on the beach.

Room types

The resort has fourteen deluxe beachfront villas, nine on north beach and five on sunset beach, all with a private plunge pool, gazebo, day bed and outdoor shower.

There are also nineteen spacious 54sq metre beachfront bures, built in the Fijian tradition with very high ceilings lined with Fijian tapa.  Each bure has a private plunge pool, gazebo and day bed and outdoor shower.  These bures were recently renovated in June 2015.

Thirteen 26sq metre Resort rooms, situated just a minute or less from the beach overlook tropical gardens are also available.  The rooms have beautiful high ceilings lined with Fijian tapa and each has a private deck with outdoor furniture.
