We really enjoyed out time at Matava Resort. This was our first visit to Fiji and it was beautiful.
The staff was warm, friendly and always made sure we had everything we needed. All we had to do was mention that we wanted to visit the village or go see the fruit bats on the other island and they said "Let's go". They really made the trip fun in between dives. The food was excellent and plentiful.
The weather was unusually cool and water rough while we were there but the dive staff tried to find the best dive site with the least current or least swells. Underneath was clear and we never encountered any current.
The diving was beautiful. The weather got better as the week went on and we really enjoyed our week. Our room was beautiful and very clean with a beautiful view. They have lights in each bure for night and they give you solar powered lights to take back with you each night so you can find your way to your room.
We were comfortable without air conditioning and they have mosquito netting for the bed(although we did not see many mosquitoes) You can get wet on the boat ride to the resort from the airport if it is raining but they are careful to keep the luggage dry. Once you get to the resort, if it is low tide you have to walk to the dock in ankle deep water and mud so wear shorts and sandals you can take off.
The staff was fun and village kids came one night and showed us traditional Fijian dances. They were great. It was a very relaxing and fun week.
