Matava Resort

Fiji – Kadavu



Find your spirit of adventure as you experience the magnificent beauty of a remote, unspoiled tropical Fijian Island, at Matava Resort. Plunging volcanic rain forest slopes meet azure coral lagoons and the Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef, a rare untouched slice of nature unfolds before your eyes. There are no roads, no noise, and no stress.

Matava Resort offers a range of eco friendly accommodation, in tropical surroundings. The spacious bures (Fijian bures) are constructed from solid sustainable Fijian wood and local materials are nestled amongst the rainforest to offer complete privacy. The bures are naturally cooled by the Fijian trade winds flowing through the louvered and screened windows and ceiling fans are powered only during the summer months. As there is limited mains power, the bures do not have telephones, tv’s, air conditioning or fridges. Enjoy solar-powered lighting and solar hot water. Mains power is available through the evenings for charging electronic devices and for the use of a ceiling fan during the summer months.

Dining takes place on the balcony of the ‘bure levu’, which is one of Fiji’s largest traditional structures. The restaurant serves a variety of cuisines while the fully stocked bar has a wide selection of local and imported beers, wine and spirits, soft drinks and juices.

Matava boasts its own organic vegetable farm and fresh filtered spring water. Picnic lunches or private dining on your bure deck can also be arranged. Each week Matava hosts a traditional Fijian “lovo” feast and Kava ceremony.

Mad Fish Dive Centre is Matava’s on-site PADI 5 Star Dive Centre. They dive The Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef extensively and cater for all levels of divers from beginner to experienced. The dive centre will take you to sites varying in depths, currents and visibility, you can expect a kaleidoscope of colourful corals and incredible marine life.
The signature dive site – Manta Reef is a site where guests can dive and sometimes snorkel with Manta Rays all year round. The reef is a feeding station, but occasionally mantas stop for a clean above the reef. There is a resident population as well as occasional pelagic manta visits.
The site is a submerged reef outside of the Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef and is about a 40-minute boat ride from the Resort.

Do your body and mind a favour and escape the noisy, polluted world. Rest, relax, rejuvenate, detox and restore your body’s natural health with a dose of clean Pacific Ocean air. Enjoy yoga, meditation, Bamboo Spa treatments, fun adventure activities and dine on healthy organic foods grown right before your very eyes. Experience the real Fiji and leave no carbon footprint. Depart refreshed, invigorated and ready to face the hustle and bustle of the modern world.

All this makes Matava a unique and special getaway.
