About This Trip

Discover the ultimate in Fijian getaways, escaping to the luxurious resort on the private island of Matamanoa. Spend your days walking the deserted powder beaches beneath swaying coconut palms or relaxing in your exclusive garden view room. Enjoy cocktails by the infinity pool or snorkel in the deep turquoise of the Pacific Ocean. This adult-only island resort promises absolute tranquillity, a place to reconnect with yourself and the beauty of the natural world.

 

When your island retreat ends, step onboard the small cruise ship MV Reef Endeavour for three days of exploring the most glorious islands and reefs in the Southern Yasawa islands. With stops at palm-fringed desert islands, some of the world’s best snorkelling spots and an exploration of Fijian culture on the beautiful Sacred Island, there is so much beauty packed into your cruise. However, you will still have plenty of time to relax by the onboard pool, indulge in relaxing massages and enjoy the outstanding gastronomy created by local chefs and mixologists, on your fully catered, luxury ship.
