Nestled between the white sandy beach and a meandering creek, the resort has been developed to protect its amazing location. Surf Fiji reef breaks while your partner relaxes in the comfort and luxury of the beachfront resort with fine food, and resort facilities including a swimming pool. 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.
Hideaways is a right hand reef break, only a short paddle in front of Hideaway Resort. It’s a hollow, fast, ledgey barrel, but only good around high tide. Starts working at less than 3ft and holds up to 6ft plus. Year-round wave, although it is more consistent from May to October. Side-onshore in tradewinds so best when winds are light. Recommended for experienced surfers only.

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.
Many activities are provided by Matanivusi Resort. It goes from surfing to diving sunset cruises. Learning more about the Fijian's culture is also possible through visiting typical villages, walking in plantations or seeing the famous Kava Ceremony. More activities are also available with no extra charge such as volleyball, boules, table tennis, foozball, stand up paddle.
Shark dive is a must do as well as game fishing or waterfall swim and hike. For these activities, additional charges apply.
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.
