Fiji sevens men’s rugby team took gold in the Tokyo Olympics, and they defended their 2016 Rio title making them back-to-back champions! In 2021, Fiji beat new Zealand 27-12 in the gold medal match at Tokyo stadium.

Matangi Private Island Resort is situated on its own 240-acre island paradise in the North-East part of the Fiji group of islands.
Our unique island paradise has been in our family since 1878 when an adventurous ancestor who sailed on a schooner from Sydney during the ‘Great Fiji Rush of 1870’ purchased the island in 1878. After farming the island as a small coconut plantation until 1986, Flora Douglas, whose great grandfather had purchased Matangi island in 1878, and her husband Noel Douglas began on their journey to develop Matangi into one of Fiji’s premier island resorts.
