Fiji fun - Review of Matava - TripAdvisor

Fiji fun”
5 of 5 starsReviewed July 3, 2012 NEW
This was our first trip to Fiji. Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor and it rained every day or night. The water's surface was rather daunting outside of the reef because of the unusually high swells and current, the mantas never showed up on Manta Reef and there were surprisingly fewer fish than we expected. But those are all things that are not controllable. 
The dive staff was terrific and did their best to make not good conditions into a great experieince nevertheless. Our gear was always ready, the boat crew was always helpful and the dive masters always kept track of where all the divers were.
We stayed in Two Tree Bure...47 steps up into the forest and worth every bit of the climb! The room was spacious and the view was spectacular. It was so private that we did not need to close the drapes at night.
The entire resort staff was incredible. Every person knew all of our names ( there were 9 of us)from the first hour we arrived.
Breakfast (made to order)and lunch were delicious. The soups were amazing ! However,not being a beef eater, I did get a little tired of chicken four nights in a row. 
Our trip to the waterfall with Athan was a day to remember, since one of my friends and I made it all the way to the second fall, swam in it's pool, climbed the rocks next to it and bonzai-jumped into the water from there. Without his attentive care and help it never would have happened. 
From the moment we landed til the moment we departed,we were given exceptional care and attention.
