Fiji Private Island – Matangi
Matangi Private Island Resort is situated on its own 240-acre island paradise in the North-East part of the Fiji group of islands. Our unique island paradise has been in our family since 1878 when an adventurous ancestor who sailed on a schooner from Sydney during the ‘Great Fiji Rush of 1870’ purchased the island in 1878.
After farming the island as a small coconut plantation until 1986, Flora Douglas, whose great grandfather had purchased Matangi island in 1878, and her husband Noel Douglas began on their journey to develop Matangi into one of Fiji’s premier island resorts.
Crafted from local hardwoods, bamboo, lava rock and coconut palm thatch, our nine authentic Bures and three unique Treehouses offer a harmonious balance between nature and contemporary elegance. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens yet situated only steps from our private beach, our Bures offer privacy in the most spectacular tropical settings.
Situated only 30 feet from our private beach, our spacious ‘Vale-ni-Kana’ Dining Room boasts breath-taking views of the ocean and our exquisitely landscaped grounds. Built entirely from local timber and showcasing intricately carved poles decorated with coconut fibre rope, this magnificent complex oozes Fijian charm. Our cuisine is largely influenced by our tropical surroundings, Fijian heritage and the unique flavours of the South Pacific.
Our ‘Ocean Spa’ features a over-water deck with relaxation area, gift shop and two couple treatment rooms, one complete with our unique lava rock rain shower facility. Drawing on inspiration from our traditional Fijian culture and our natural island surroundings, our Spa’s interior features intricate carvings of tropical fish and marine life, lava rock and local hardwoods. Our respect for our Fijian culture and the ocean is reflected in the variety of treatments that we offer including the Fijian ‘Bobo’ massage, ‘Lava Shell’ and ‘Hot Stone’ massage as well our ‘Earth Sea Salt’ and ‘Coconut Sugar Glow’ body treatments.
Our gorgeous tropical setting, lush rainforest interior, white sand beaches and pristine coral reefs, provide the perfect back-drop for many activities including, snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, hiking and private picnics. Our fine dining and spa services complete the picture making Matangi the ultimate honeymoon or Fiji private island wedding destination.
