Matamanoa Island Resort
Designed for those who dream of peace and tranquility, Matamanoa is an intimate adults-only resort set within the secluded Mamanucas.
With a volcanic cone jutting from the center of the island, native bush and palm trees filling it and a white sandy beach curving alongside a lively coral reef, it’s the true essence of paradise and a haven for those wishing to release the pressures of daily life.
Better yet, policy prohibits day-trippers or those under the age of 16 to visit the island, preserving the special atmosphere so you can enjoy it throughout your stay. Let the warmth of the sun caress your body as you lay next to your private plunge pool, or try your hand at tennis before celebrating with a cocktail at the bar.
As the sun sets, the spa will greet you for a pampering of your choosing, and the day ends with a delightful rest in your well-appointed suite.
As the stars take over the endless night sky, you’ll dream of more blissful days at Matamanoa.
MATAMANOA ISLAND RESORT LOCATION
Located approximately 19 miles west of Nadi International Airport, Matamanoa can be reached either by helicopter, speed boat or high-speed catamaran. South Sea Cruises departs Denarau Marina twice daily for the 90-minute cruise to the island, or you can book your own private speedboat to depart on whatever time is suitable to you. One-way or round-trip transfers can easily be arranged.
Traveling to Matamanoa by air is an entirely different experience, flying over the glittering ocean waters and offering aerial perspectives of the island. Departure times can be arranged for whenever works for you, and the transfers are faster and more convenient than if you arrive by boat.
Matamanoa has three room types: the Beach Front Villa, Beach Front Bure and Resort Room. There are ten of the foremost, located on the private North Beach with access via a purpose-built walkway or chauffeured golf cart. Two split-level rooms, a lounge, multiple bathrooms and private plunge pool are all at your disposal and can accommodate a maximum of three adults.
The Beach Front Bure is equally tempting just steps from pristine white sand, and the Garden Room is relaxing, what with its location among lush vegetation. Throughout your stay, complimentary activities include snorkelling, canoeing, beach volleyball, Fijian cooking and basket weaving lessons, tennis and more, or you can pay a little extra to go scuba diving, fishing or visit Fiji’s famous Cloud 9 floating platform.
Resort Room Situated among Matamanoa’s natural lush vegetation, these garden rooms accommodate a couple or two people traveling together. Stunning tapa ceilings, comfortable rooms and proximity to the central area tempts travelers to the dining room, pool or bar areas, while rooms relax with either a king bed or two comfortable twins. Each Resort Room is a spacious studio size unit and has its own private covered veranda, air conditioning, ceiling fan, shower, bathrobes, bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, safe and daily room service to replenish linen and towels.
Beach Front Bure In Matamanoa’s Beach Front Bure, you can awaken in bed and gaze upon the magnificent and intricate tapas on the ceiling, relax in your spacious and beautiful lounge, take a dip in your own private plunge pool and then indulge with a book in the shade of your thatched daybed. These bures accommodate a maximum of 3 adults and include a private covered veranda, air conditioning, ceiling fan, shower, bathrobes, bar fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, safe and daily room service to replenish linen and towels.
Beach Front Villa Ten Beach Front Villas dot the island’s private North Beach, with access via a purpose-built walkway or chauffeured golf cart.

The bedroom features a super king bed facing the Pacific Ocean, double wardrobes, two luggage racks, a desk, air conditioning and overhead fan, while bathrooms have twin granite vanities plus separate shower and toilet areas.
