Resort Description

Matamanoa Island is an adults-only deluxe resort, with no day visitors and a 5 Star PADI dive center on site. 

This stunning private island is made up of stand alone Beachfront Villas, Beachfront Bures and Garden View Resort Rooms. All Villas and Bures feature an outdoor shower, thatched gazebo and plunge pool.

The onsite restaurant serves exquisite cuisine against an enchanting backdrop of the South Pacific Ocean and Fijian islands. A full American breakfast is complementary with every booking. 

When not relaxing on the beautiful beach, you can kayak or snorkel your way around the island, or plunge below the surface to explore the underwater world with Deepblue, the resort's very own PADI 5 Star dive operator.
