On a privately owned island off Taveuni, Matangi Private Island Resort is an adults-only retreat spread over 240 acres. It is a unique horseshoe shaped island paradise of tropical rainforests, white sand beaches, surrounded by crystal-clear water and coral reefs. Stay in bures (traditional Fijian bungalows) that are handcrafted by local Fijian craftsmen using wood, bamboo, lava rock and coconut palm thatch. They are tastefully designed to achieve a balance between nature and modern comforts. Go snorkeling or scuba diving, sail on the calypso catamaran, or have a fun-filled day with stand up paddle boarding or hand-line fishing for coral trout or barracuda. After an activity-filled day, unwind with a traditional Fijian massage at Ocean Spa. Dine at Vale-Ni-Kana, where the cuisine is influenced by the tropical surroundings, Fijian heritage and unique flavors of the South Pacific, and accompanied by a large selection of Australian and New Zealand wines and French champagne.
