Matangi Island’s Fiji Resort Owners
Matangi Island has been the Douglas family home for five generations.
Originally from Scotland, Matangi’s owner’s forefathers settled in the Taveuni area to develop and maintain plantations. They grew up here, learning to speak Fijian as their first language, and are intimately related to this land and the resort’s neighbors.
In 1986, they opened their tropical South Pacific Island to guests from around the world so that they could share this tropical heaven with others. Since then, they have welcomed discerning guests to their unique beach resort, Matangi Island Resort. They, like us, now call Matangi Island Resort their Fijian home.
