Matangi Island Resort

Matangi Island , Fiji http://www.matangiisland.com/
679-888-0260

Popular with honeymooners, this family-owned resort is the only hotel on 240-acre Matangi Island. Overlooking a white-sand beach, the 11 private bures (thatched-roof bungalows) contain hand-hewn wooden beams and sheer white bed canopies, surrounded by tropical flowers. The tree house bures, which are built in Pacific almond trees, also have outdoor Jacuzzis. Resort fees include three meals a day at the island’s only restaurant, Vale-Ni-Kana, which serves local seafood with Fijian produce like breadfruit and taro. Also included is a welcome fruit basket, a sulu (traditional skirt worn by men and women), and water sports such as snorkeling and kayaking.
