TRAVEL REQUIREMENTS: Passport and return airline tickets are essential. Most countries don’t require visas, but be safe and check with your local Fiji Embassy for Visa requirements. It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance – just in case!
HEALTH: No Malaria is present in Fiji. Insect repellent is necessary considering the Resort is located on the beach bordering a lush jungle.
Sunscreen: We recommend Zinc Oxide for the face and a waterproof sunscreen for the body. Bring a rash guard or a wetsuit top for extra protection. All of our boats are outfitted with first aid and a phone in case of an emergency.

A sulu (sarong or wrap around) with a shirt is acceptable for both men and women when visiting a village. Remove footwear when entering a Fijian home or hall. Going to Church on Sunday is an enriching and respectful experience.
Do not show up to the village uninvited.
Remove your hat & sunglasses when entering the village as a sign of respect.
GRATUITIES: Collective gratuities are accepted at check-out. All our staff contribute to your stay, so we combine all gratuities and distribute equally to staff before each school year.

A king size bed, cot and single bed fit comfortably into each room. We also have a pool and other activities so the children have lots to do. Babysitters can also easily be arranged for FJ $15 an hour.

Fiji is the center of the South Pacific. It is serviced by flights from the Australia, USA & NZ. Nadi International Airport is a pleasant two hour drive, passing through sugar farms, the small town of Sigatoka on the biggest river in Fiji, and the Fijian villages along the spectacular Coral Coast where the highway hugs the shoreline revealing picturesque bays and reefs.
Matanivusi Surf Resort is 3 kilometers past the village of Vunaniu. The resort staff come from the village and are very happy to invite you to their village for a kava session. If you do go to the village, be warned that there are cultural traditions that must be observed. Resort staff will be happy to explain these to you.
