The Scenic Matavai Resort in Tamakautonga, Niue offers travellers something that very few others in its class ever can – huge humpback whales gambolling so close to the shore even prescription glasses are unnecessary!
The resort sits just a few minutes’ drive away from the airport, but a world away from modern stresses like pollution, traffic and overcrowding. Surrounded by rainforest and coconut palms, the resort overlooks the Pacific Ocean and pristine coral reefs. The Scenic Matavai offers four categories of rooms and suites to its guests, starting from affordable Ocean Rooms to Deluxe Clifftop Rooms which are perched atop the cliff-face and offer stunning views of the ocean below.
Because Niue itself is a coral island (one of the largest in the world!), the waters are so clear that swimming, snorkelling, whale watching and just about any water-related activity trebles in fun. Niue is also one of the few places in the world which offer whale-watching charters from July to October, where lucky travellers can dive with the gentle giants. Holiday-makers can also find themselves swimming with pods of frolicking spinner dolphins and shy sea-turtles in the crystal-clear waters of the island. After a day having fun, guests can return to the Scenic Matavai for a well-deserved drink at the bar and a hearty meal from the resort’s restaurant. The latter serves up delicious traditional Niuean fare, along with continental and international cuisines. The restaurant also has an outdoor section which overlooks the ocean; a bell is rung every time a whale is sighted. Interesting Factoid: Despite its remoteness, connectivity is not a problem – the tiny island can claim the honour of having seamless WiFi coverage. Go ahead and Instagram that selfie from anywhere, anytime!
The resort has undergone a six million dollar refurbishment recently and offers seamless conference and meeting facilities for corporate retreats and group travel. But the allure of snorkelling and gorgeous coral seascapes may prove to be a slight deterrent in concentration in seminars – we advise to keep ‘em short!
