We arrived at the Blue Banana, and was greeted by our hosts, Chris and Shane, we had 14 wonderful relaxing and exciting days there. We started off in the Maui, for a week which was absolutely awesome, self contained, a wee cooker and our fantastic electric frypan. After 7 days we then moved to the Tree house, which was just...

We stayed at the Blue Banana Beach House for 14 fantastic days, from the moment we arrived I just knew we would love it there. Having never been to Tonga before and longing for a truly relaxed, chilled out holiday, I do not think we could have chosen a more perfect place. We stayed in the "Boathouse" it was perfect...

We stayed here for 4 nights in the Maui at the end of April. Shane & Chris are exactly like what the reviews have implied - absolutely lovely people. Chris even gave us a lift into town since she was going that way & showed us the sights on the way. They are not in your face just around if...

We wanted a place where we could relax and unwind. Blue banana was perfect. On the waters edge, safe swimming, and amazing hosts. Chris and Shane were very helpful but in no way imposing. If you are wanting a peaceful, self catering option, I would highly recommend Blue Banana.

We stayed in the brand new double story two bedroom beach house at Blue Banana and we were very impressed with the quality and standard of the accommodation. Chris and Shane went out of their way to be welcoming and we really appreciated the beautiful platter of fresh yellow fin tuna. The beach was lovely and the water was so...

Blue Banana Beach House sounded too good to be true upon reading their reviews. I was so wrong!!! It is everything and more and 8 days have past in a paradise that is out of this world. Shane and Chris Egan provide an idealic location only metres from the beach and you leave feeling a member of their family. We...

God, I'm so glad I booked Blue Banana for our last few nights in Tonga. After five days of resort food we arrived well stocked with provisions from the fresh market in Nuku'alofa. Chris and Shane are wonderful hosts. Beach houses are super clean, well equipped with an outdoor shower and surrounded by native bush and very private. We're happy...

An amazing location with view of the beac, lagoon, reef and sea, a few metres to the warm sea at any time of the day. The accommodation was perfect- simple, economical, yet with private and communal decks. The hosts were helpful in so many ways yet we were able to be completely independent. Loved our relaxing time there, swimming about...

The Egans are great hosts! Fantastic tips on what to do. Made us feel welcome & waited for us to get in at approximately 4 AM in the morning! We (3 adults - mum & dad + adult daughter) stayed 6 nights in the Maui Fale & had a great time. No real need to go anywhere else in Tonga...
