Matangi Island Resort is located on the tiny 1 km² Matagi Island (spelt Matagi and pronounced ma-tang-i). The horseshoe-shaped island is located 10 km off the north east coast of Fiji's third largest island, Taveuni. Taveuni is around 180 km north east of Suva.

After you catch an international flight to Nadi International Airport, it's a 90-minute domestic flight to Taveuni Island. Then it's a 20-minute mini-bus transfer followed by a 20-minute wet boat transfer to the resort.
