Fodor's Expert Review Matava Eco-Adventure & Spa

Kadavu, Kadavu, Fiji

Divers and snorkelers, game-fishers, and kayakers not married to "the finer things" will find this ecofriendly resort a worthy base camp. The resort dives nearly 30 sites on the famed Astrolabe Reef, including one known for its enormous manta rays. A nice sand beach within view is a long swim or one-minute boat ride away. Remodeled in mid-2008, the studio-style bure are well-spaced on a steep hillside and have simple, white-tiled bathrooms and excellent, unobstructed views of the ocean. Honeymoon bure, commanding even better views from near the top, are a bit roomier with king-size beds. A new waterfront deck with daybeds provides a tranquil spot to while away an hour with a book in the shade. The included meals are very good though not exceptional and feature vegetables from an extensive organic garden and the occasional yellowfin tuna caught that day.
