Anyone been to Kadavu? - TripAdvisor

"Hi Jules,

We choose to go to Matava Resort instead. We were there for 5 nights (10 dives) starting the 25th of November. My husband and I stayed in a beautiful bure and totally enjoyed the experience of this Eco Resort. We have dived around the world and we rate this as one of our most enjoyable dive trips. The diving was some of the best we've done (manta rays, healthy vibrant reefs, lots of fish diversity, etc.).

We completed our Advanced Open Water Certification while there and found the PADI Dive Instructor , Simon, to be excellent.

Several of the guests that were staying there at the same time as us were Fiji locals (marine biologist, ex-Dive Shop Owner from Taveuni, Fiji resort planner) as well as a well known underwater photographer from the UK and we enjoyed learning alot from them during our stay. They obviously knew about this nearly hidden treasure!

It's a small place without the frills of a big resort and if this is what you like, his may not be the place for you. But if you enjoy being close to nature and are going for the diving, this eco resort more than makes up for the lack of a fancy pool or beach. (check out the exising reviews on Trip Advisor) or Matava ( for more information."
