Matanivusi

Boutique All-inclusive Eco-resort with access to the world-famous Frigates!

Matanivusi is a boutique eco-resort on Fiji’s Coral Coast, located on the southern end of the main island, Viti Levu. The resort specializes in surfing, offering selected access to 7 separate reef breaks including the world-famous Frigates.

Beautifully designed, taking full advantage of the surrounding natural beauty, the resort is set between a creek and the white sand beach. Named by STOKE as the world’s first sustainable surf resort, Matanivusi also offers a range of health, wellness, and ocean activities catering for solo travelers, groups, couples, and non-surfers alike!

The Resort

Matanivusi is an all-inclusive boutique resort delivering a Fijian experience like no others. Situated on the Coral Coast, 2 hours south of Nadi, Matanivusi Resort has been built on 4 acres of land. This eco-friendly resort is surrounded by an extremely lush and old forest, abundant fruit trees, and centered around a 200-year-old Banyan tree. The white sandy beach is at your doorstep and fringes the ultra-blue lagoon.

12 exclusive rooms offer each guest a similarly deluxe experience, with an above-ground boardwalk to take you to your bure only metres from the ocean.

There is a fully stocked cocktail bar in the restaurant which overlooks the swimming pool and out to the lagoon and surf breaks. Wifi is available around the main building.

Waves at Matanivusi

There is surf all year round in Fiji with two different surf seasons. The winter season is from April to October when the low-pressure systems in the Southern Hemisphere produce consistent ground swells which can get up to 8-10ft. The summer season from November to March is generally associated with shorter duration swells, low crowds and light winds with often glassy conditions. This is the time when the local right-hand reef breaks really begin to fire up.

Frigates is the gem of the area, rivalling Cloudbreak in size, perfection and consistency and can be reached from the resort on a day trip. The other 6 local breaks (rights and lefts) reachable within a short boat ride are Pipe, J’s, Shifties, Serua, Leftovers and Vunaniu. All the surf breaks are over coral reef.

The Bures

The Deluxe rooms have been created for the perfect tropical getaway. With a great use of space, the rooms have large windows, are fan-cooled, fully screened, and have mosquito nets.

Spacious enough to incorporate a king-size bed or king singles, an ensuite with hot and cold water, and a sitting area and private deck looking over the lagoon, all rooms are beachfront and have direct access to the beach and lagoon.

Each bure (Fijian house) consists of 2 deluxe rooms. These are perfect for families or larger groups, with the choice of interconnecting rooms. The rooms can accommodate up to 2 adults and 1 child (king bed and one single) and cots are available.

The Cuisine

The package at Matanivusi includes 3 cooked meals a day from an ever-changing menu based on local and seasonal favourites. This includes a 3-course evening meal prepared by the superb on-site chef and all-day tea and coffee.

Matanivusi’s restaurant offers an eclectic fusion of Fijian, Indian and contemporary dishes using only the freshest ingredients. The sustainable restaurant uses fruits grown from around the property depending on the season, vegetables cultivated in the local villages, and fresh Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi from the daily catches brought in at Suva harbor.

The Restaurant and Bar have been designed with the intention of maximizing the view of the coral-fringed lagoon. The Bar also has a selection of wine and beers, along with a full range of spirits and liqueurs. If you are looking for something romantic you can have a candlelit dinner on your private deck.

Activities

Many activities are available at the resort on top of surfing: Snorkelling (lagoon and on the reef), Diving, Shark Dives, Stand Up Paddleboarding, Kayaking, Rainforest Walk, Guided Plantation Walk, Village Tour, Kava Ceremony, Zip Lining, White water rafting, Golf, Waterfall trips, Volleyball, Table-Tennis, and a large collection of books, magazines, and DVDs.

Wellness

Massages are available at the resort. Pamper yourself and relax those aching muscles with the masseuse from Balance Spa and select a treatment that suits your needs. This is done in the privacy of your own room.

Kite

The area is renowned for consistent Trade Winds throughout September – November and offers a multitude of reef breaks ideal for kiting. Intermediate and advanced kitesurfers will love the size and diversity of this natural playground. Matanivusi offers world-class kitesurfing downwinders, surf-kiting and flat-water kiting. Epic downwinders and reef breaks including Frigates and Fijian Pipe surround the area and cater to varying levels of experience (no beginners).

I run surf coaching trips to perfect, uncrowded waves and I relied on the AWAVE team to deliver for my clients a month long boat trip to the Maldives. We had great waves on an absolutley 5* boat called North Seven which I REALLY recommend you enquire about.

I was dubious at first as a few boats were changed, in for repair but James assured me correctly this was a usual thing and they would endevour to find us the very best replacement (which they did). North Seven was so new we were the third guests but the crew were super experienced and could not have given us a better service. Captain Usmaan, the Chef great food, Hasan and Azim our surf boat operators could not have worked any harder and always had a smile even after the 50th request to speed us to the line up or spend four hours cruising looking or waves.

AWAVE team were always on hand to answer any fears and smooth out any worries. The payment system using Revolut was super easy.

We did have a few hiccups with the local airlines which was resolved and partly our fault (as for a month trip we took alot of surfboards and in some cases were over weight).

Take the fear out of booking and especially group bookings by using the AWAVE team. Justin West Coaching recommended.

These guys are the BEST! Massively knowledgeable, fun and absolute shredders. I approached them asking for a UK winter getaway somewhere in the Indian Ocean and they suggested the perfect place, awesome setup with the beach a short stroll from my accommodation with 3 sick waves breaking over reefs to chose from. Real life doesn’t get much better than this. I also popped my barrel cherry in a big way on this trip so it was a truely memorable one. James also somehow wangled a boat charter to some super remote islands where we scored epic surf and landed some massive fish. James’ broken Indonesian language skills will get you places. Thanks again guys you rock.

James is a super knowledgeable surfer with a great ability to match any trip requirements to the right locations. He has arranged several trips for me and my friends in France, Morocco and more recently Indonesia. Awave have a great knowledge of all the surf spots and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is all set up. With limited time to do this myself their service was invaluable.

Giuliana has been amazing to work with!! She was always available and answered all my questions. Thank you for all your help! We can't wait for our trip!

Fantastic service from start to finish from James and his team. After having several ‘self organised’ trips to Asia end with only a handful of good surf days I decided this time to use Awave in hope of maximising my valuable holiday time. James custom built a trip for me and my friends tailored for our abilities and requirements. There were no days wasted waiting for transfers as he organised it all from the airport to the beach. We scored pretty much every day whilst also having a surf trip that had that ‘off the beaten track’ feel we wanted. To round it off there was also a secret boat trip in the end where we surfed an awesome spot just us...Unforgettable. Will be using again.

Fantastic service and support from Giulia during our trip. During a self organised trip to Maldives, we ended up in a sketchy situation: the hotel was far from the described plus the owner 'forgot' to mention that the whole island was in lockdown for a covid emergency. I quickly realized that I would need support and the best in class. That's when I decided to use Awave! Giulia answered reactively and custom built several solutions for me and my girlfriend, based on what feasible, our budget and surfing preferences!! No other words needed. Thanks Giulia, we'll be in touch again!

My friends and I recently went on a trip to the Maldives. We booked a week on the Hudhuranfushi resort which was amazing! The staff was very welcoming, flawless facilities and tasty food. One day our surf guide Ryan caught a fish and made some sashimi on the spot! I think that was pretty thoughtful! Awave agency really made sure all our needs where met as we where a big group of friends. A very personal approach and clear communication. Epic surf, great service, memories of a lifetime! I highly recommend traveling with Awave!

I had just arrived in Bali when the whole of Indonesia went into lockdown again. Despite travel restrictions such as mandatory vaccination and PCR tests, flight cancellations and even the fast ferries to the Mentawis being cancelled, Giulia tried everything to get me there. It was a hell of a trip to get there but totally worth it.

I scored pristine and empty Mentawis. The resort was affordable yet very luxurious given the remoteness. And with their great surf guide and their boat, I scored amazing empty waves!
