Everything on the trip went smoothly and according to plan. Shelly at this Fiji travel agency worked with us to find just the right resorts for our desires and then tirelessly to find dates where both locations were available back-to-back AND offering special discounts so we could afford the trip. This was just as cyclone Tomas was bearing down on the exact locations we wanted to stay. She was consistently timely in her responses and her suggestions were all right on.
We actually ended up going to Fiji instead of the original plan, which was N Queensland Australia. The snorkeling and diving opportunities where we stayed in Fiji were as good as it gets. The Fijian people are very open and extremely friendly. At the resorts where we stayed, we felt as much like family as paying guests. Matangi Island Resort was 5-star in every respect. It is small and very romantic, catering heavily to the newlywed crowd. No young children allowed. The bures were well designed and comfortable, the food was terrific (in variety, presentation and taste), the staff couldn't have been more helpful (ask for something and you get it). Plenty of activities available if you feel energetic.
I would probably stay longer at Mantagi and skip the stay at Paradise Taveuni (our first stop). Paradise is very nice, but very focused on scuba diving. It's less of an all-purpose resort and doesn't meet the 5-star standard experienced at Matangi.
