On the remote and magnificent island of Kadavu, Matava boasts secluded splendor while also satisfying your spirit of adventure. Bordered by the Great Astrolabe Reef and set amidst lush tropical surroundings, Matava is a small and intimate getaway.

Drift to sleep to the soothing roar of the waves breaking on the distant reef and be awakened to the call of exotic native wildlife.

Matava caters to a maximum of only 22 guests in lush tropical surrounding ensuring a private haven away form the hustle and bustle of crowds. Traditional thatched Fijian ‘bures’ with polished timber floors, louvre windows, timber four poster beds and private decks are nestled in the rainforest to offer privacy, comfort and superb ocean views. Our Oceanview Bures are across the stream and offer spectacular panoramas of The Great Astrolabe Reef and surrounding offshore islands.

Our top-end Honeymoon Bures are scattered back up on the hill behind Matava to ensure complete privacy and stunning vista from the expansive full length picture windows across the ocean. Immersed in beautiful tropical gardens and surrounded by lush rainforest the Honeymoon Bures are a true heaven of privacy within the beauty of Fiji’s natural environment.

All these new design bures have new private facilities and expansive private decks. Solar power provides the lighting in all the bures for night time reading and comfort. Hot water is supplied to all the bures by our eco-friendly Solar Hot Water system.

Our environmental policy does not allow us to spray harsh chemicals for pest control, we prefer the natural repellent of the carefully selected shrubs that discourage insects and bugs. All bures are fully insect screened on all windows, and the romance of the tropics is enlivened with custom made mosquito nets on all of our beds.

As a PADI certified resort offers the perfect environment to scuba dive, snorkel, surf, fish and kayak with opportunities to trek, visit local indigenous villages, bird watch or simply relax and unwind.

Matava is a genuine eco-hideaway designed to cause minimal impact on the environment and to promote conservational awareness to the local community and its visitors.
