Kadavu Island's only AAA Star rated Resort, (3.5 Stars) Matava sits on the South East side of the island overlooking the world famous Great Astrolabe Barrier Reef. Guests are collected from Kadavu airport for the 45 minute boat ride to the resort in a large comfortable custom built transfer boat. Surrounded by rainforest, the resort's accommodation bures are traditional thatched Fijian bures with en-suit bathrooms and private sun decks with spectacular views out over the coral lagoons and barrier reef. 10 accommodation bures split evenly between Honeymoon and Oceanview, nestle in private gardens a few minutes walk from the main bure complex at the heart of the resort. Here lies a large comfortable guest area with fully stocked bar, dining terrace and front deck overlooking the lagoon. Also on hand, a small library and guest charging area for laptops, cameras, tablets and Wi-Fi coverage.

Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
Have an extra relaxing trip knowing that you are staying at an environmentally friendly resort. By protecting and caring for our destination, we provide guests with well maintained surroundings for an even better holiday getaway. At Matava resort we have adopted conservation awareness, and waste management (recycling) programmes at the resort and with local villages. Our lighting is primarily solar, with additional kerosene lanterns if required. All rubbish is sorted, food waste is fed to local pigs, and we compost as much waste as possible. Have a pleasurable holiday, while minimizing your environmental impact.
