Matangi Resort is an amazing place. It is reached via a flight from Nadi to Taveuni, followed by a 20 minute drive to a boat jetty, and a subsequent 15 minute ride in a speed boat. Matangi Island features a single resort with about 15 rooms, including three tree houses that face a lovely stretch of sand beach. There is...
