Located on the northwestern edge of the island, the huts are excellent. I'd recommend having a rental car if staying here, and you can easily explore the entire island by yourself. There is a great beach just north of this hotel, and the blowholes are a short drive away. This is not a resort, but a nice mid-range get away...

Go for the fire dances. Best I've seen. The young woman w the poi was fabulous and the young man also. The food is good - a huge variety - and the service helpful. The tone can be a little patronising/educational but the dances as I understand are traditional and genuine. Many many Tongans there so a great community night....

We visited this resort twice. The first time for the Wednesday night cultural show. We really enjoyed this and felt it was great value for money. Highly recommend.... But... we came back on a Sunday night for a meal, what a terrible experience. Luckily there was a nice view as we waited for an hour and fifteen minutes for our...

I had no idea the food and floor show could be as good as it was. Everything about this place was first class. We will be back. I gave seen many cultural shows but the dancing,singing and fire show are comparable with anywhere.

We booked for 2 days only. The resort people including owner Peseti were so welcoming. They are a bit relaxed so you need to get used to that way of life. Tongans are humble and quiet mannered. The cultural night was excellent and rivals overseas cultural nights in NZ. It involved stories of the ancient Tongans and involved dances from...

Loved it!!!

The staff are friendly and helpful and the restaurant has great views and yummy cocktails. Serving sizes for mains in the restaurant are very generous and reasonably priced. The fales are relatively clean but are a tad dark and dreary. The hot water in our fale was barely a trickle but as we didn't experience hot water anywhere else in...

A 45 minute drive from the airport but well worth the journey. The individual bungalows are set in beautiful gardens and the bar and restaurant overlook the beach and reef beyond.
