The Astrolabe Hideaway boasts secluded splendour whilst also satisfying your spirit of adventure.
Bordered by the Great Astrolabe Reef and set amidst lush tropical surroundings, Matava is a small and intimate getaway, designed to blend with its natural environment.
Traditional thatched Fijian bures are nestled in the rainforest offering privacy, comfort and superb ocean views.
Drift into sleep to the soothing roar of the waves breaking on the barrier reef, and awake to the sounds of exotic native wildlife.
There are no roads, no town power, no town water. You can only arrive at Matava by boat, use solar power, drink water from ancient subterranean springs and stargaze at unpolluted skies.
The resort offers world class diving in the Great Astrolabe Reef. Matava's PADI dive instructors and divemasters will escort you through the wonders of their hidden and exclusive paradise as an abundance of soft and hard corals beckon from below.
Dive vertical walls and fast drifts, see abundant fish life over beautiful coral gardens, come face to face with sharks, turtles and sea snakes.
Finally, watch in awe as graceful mantas glide past you within a hairsbreadth on one of our most beautiful reefs.
Beginners can take a fully certified PADI course, whilst experienced divers can choose from further courses, single dives, dive packages and night dives.
Matava will give you diving variety and quality which is truly world class.

Anglers who want to spend an exciting few hours or those sport fishing for the first time can do so by trying their hand at catching walu, barracuda, trevally or mahimahi and maybe catch one for the Barbecue that night.
The keen bill fish angler or those eager to experience big game fishing can step up the tackle and head off for the chance of marlin, sailfish or tuna and the best stand up and fight experience you are likely to have.
