Fiji - Matamanoa Island Resort

It's freezing here in Tassie today and the AFL Grand Final is in full swing, so what better time to upload some more photos of our recent holiday.

Our main holiday destination in Fiji was the beautiful Matamanoa Island Resort - a little piece of 'heaven on earth'.  It was a 'child free' resort - gotta love the idea of that especially if you're a school teacher :)


First Impressions
This is me letting hubby know what I thought of our accommodation just after we were shown to our bure. The view definitely got the 'thumbs up' from me.

 Our first glimpse of Matamanoa Island Resort.

 
 I couldn't wait to step ashore!

 
 A photo opportunity around every corner.

 


The Restaurant

The View
 This was 'our' front yard.

 
 A great place to read and relax.

 'Our' pathway to the beach.

 Our view to the West.

 
 The garden path to our bure.

 Only a few steps from our own patch of beach.

 The Entertainment
 The choir from a nearby island village came to sing some good old fashioned gospel songs.

 Every night the staff welcomed new guests and said goodbye to those leaving the next day.


 Saying Goodbye to Matamanoa


 Our cases ready to be transported by dinghy.

 The boat on the left took us back to the passenger ferry and the little dinghy on the right was loaded up with the luggage.


I still have have a few more photos to share of the sea life, the sunsets, the buru and our trip to the island where 'Cast Away' was filmed.  Be back soon ...
