Matanivusi is Stoke Certified based on their sustainability practices, this means that their environmental, social and economic impacts have been audited and have passed a strict set of criteria.
World-class left that can rival Cloudbreak for power, size and consistency. A gradual tapering reef means it can handle all swell sizes. Located offshore, a 45 minute boat trip is required from South Coast resorts.
J’s is a hollow, fast wave that breaks from 2’ to 6’. It’s best around the high tide with winds from NE to W. It needs some west in the swell to run down the reef.
This wave has a deep water take off making the break a ‘not too threatening’ ride. This outside point of the barrier reef picks up all the swell and can be double the size of J’s and Vunaniu. It is powerful and thick. When everywhere else is flat, you can almost guarantee a 4-foot wave at Shifties. It can be surfed at all tides. Again, a wind of the north quadrant is needed.
This hollow left hand barrel breaks with swell in the 2-6ft range. Short fast and powerful this wave is also offshore in a SE trade wind direction, which is dominant in the winter season March to November.
Great long right-hande break. Mellow take off going into hollow inside section. On medium days this is one of the longest rights surfing in Fiji offers. Works almost at all tides. Waves begins to break on outer reef and peels into deeper water.
A right hand barrel which can be tricky at take-off, but can produce the ride of a lifetime. Best around high tide due to the quite shallow coral reef close to take-off zone. Breaks at the entry of a passage which can pick up large swells.

Matanivusi Surf Resort has been designed by award-winning Architect, Paul Uhlmann, a surfer from the Gold Coast, Australia. The accommodation has been designed to achieve the integration of the natural landscape with the living area. There are large amounts of glass and louvres that allow the cool sea breezes to ventilate the units. Ceiling fans, ensuite bathrooms and a large deck area are features that make the simple designs a pleasure to stay in.

There is surf year around in Fiji, but there are two different surf seasons. One is from April to October when the low pressure systems in the Southern Hemisphere produce consistent ground swells which can get up to 8-10’ft. All the surfbreaks are over coral reef and when over head high can be challenging for the inexperienced surfers. For this reason surfers need to be competent and confident in their surfing skills. Recommended surfboards would be a ‘hotdog’ shortboard and a larger semi-gun for the bigger days. Only a short boat ride from Matanivusi Resort, are three right hand reef breaks and one left. Depending on the tide, wind and swell, these waves can offer the experience of a lifetime for you and your friends.
Matanivusi’s restaurant offers an eclectic fusion of Fijian, Indian and contemporary dishes using only the freshest ingredients. The Restaurant and Bar has been designed with the intention of maximizing the view of the coral fringed lagoon, whether you are enjoying fresh Trevalley cooked in coconut cream or a Matanivusi Mai Tai. If you are looking for something a little more romantic you can have a candle lit dinner on your private deck as the ocean waves serenade the sun to sleep or under the giant Baka (Banyan) tree.
The resort has been planned as an eco-resort. The principles being to make as little impact as possible during construction, implement best sustainable operating practices and integration with the local Fijian villagers. Minimal clearing was done to allow for the main building and the 6 bures. For our sewage treatment we use a biolytix waste management system to reduce local pollution and waste. The resort collects rainwater in tanks for use throughout. Recycling programmes ensure that all waste is sorted and disposed of through commercial contractors. Educational programmes for the local primary and secondary schools.
The beautiful yoga studio is built on an elevated wooden deck, overlooking the lush and sacred rainforest. Enjoy the calming sounds of the bush and feel the gentle wind grazing against your skin while flowing through your asanas. Yoga mats, blocks and straps are available to use at no extra cost. Host your own Yoga retreat or teacher training.
