Matangi Private Island Resort is a family owned and operated resort, on a 240-acre private island, located in the lush tropical northern part of the Fiji Islands.

This unique horseshoe-shaped island paradise boasts virgin tropical rainforest and white sand beaches. It's no surprise that it was voted in
Islands Magazine as one of the "Top 10 Private Islands in the World" and also featured in "1,000 Places to See Before You Die", by Patricia Schultz.

Matangi offers 14 traditional Fijian designed bures, each with air-conditioning, ipod docking stations, outdoor stone shower, large sitting area, fully stocked mini bar and all the amenities of a luxury resort. The island caters to adults only. Rates include all meals, morning and afternoon tea, non-motorized water sports.

Ideal for honeymooners, destination weddings, couples, romantic getaway, soft-adventure, snorkeling, scuba, hiking and seekers of natural beauty.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Disney has nothing on this place. Went here for my honeymoon and over 5 years ago and have thought of nothing other than returning ever sense. The thing that makes this place so magical is the staff. They are just wonderful and everyone knows each other. Spent a week here and knew every staff member and had plenty of en depth talks with them. they were just so helpful and up for anything here. We got open water dive certified here. and the water are just amazing for diving or just snorkeling. The Food was SOOO GOOD. Fresh too most of it was caught or made right off the island or very near by. Fruits and Vegetables I have never heard of but tasted so good. Breakfast was pretty set, but had a few options every day, then you got a menu to choose for the rest of the day. All of it was so good including the desert. And the best BBQ Squid ever, maybe the best thing i have ever ate. The rooms were fabulous, roomy spacious and such an open air tropic feeling. The bed was soft and comfy but not too soft. The wife loved it as well. The whole resort had plenty to do but wasn't rushed or busy you could easily relax and still do plenty in a day. Wish i was back there right now.

Review:   Matangi Private Island Resort is Superb. My Wife and I visited the resort for our honeymoon. Lomalagi “heaven” is the bure to stay in. It was luxurious in every way. Accomodations, gluten free allergy custom chef, as an example. Perfect for a 7-10 day honeymoon or anniversary. Definitely visit horseshoe bay while you are there Enjoy the luscious green plants and beauty of the island.

Review:   My review is a little tardy - went there in the 90's! It was spectacular, but was very much a scuba destination. If you're not a diver you are missing out on the main attraction. If you are up for drift diving in strong currents you'll see the best the Pacific has to offer. Plus great land-side care.
