This was our second trip to Matava. My wife, who is a vegetarian, was taken care of with unique vegetarian dishes that made her feel like she was receiving special treatment; however, this was not the case as everyone always receives special treatment from the staff.
The resort creates a social atmosphere, yet you can choose to have privacy anywhere at the resort if you choose.
The diving was beautiful both inside and outside the reef. The mantas showed up again and were surreal. Both soft and hard corals in abundance. We even saw a zebra shark on one of the dives.
The staff are extremely friendly and seek to make sure you are having a great time. I would expect no less from the Fijian people.
The owners are friendly and Richard is always concerned that your expectations are being met.
The bures are improving. They are clean and comfortable and have mosquito netting, which is necessary.
My only suggestion, based upon my prior trip, is to bring a small batter operated fan if you are like me and need a little breeze under the netting. Most guests I spoke to did not need this little extra but I suggest it just in case.
We are already looking forward to our next trip back.
