Fua'amotu Transit Lodge is a basic accommodation. You are essentially taking a room in a local house. At $50 a night it is expensive - but then most things in Tonga are (or at least where tourism is involved). However the cost does involve free transport between the guesthouse and the airport. In both directions (arriving and departing) which is...

We only needed somewhere for 5 hours between flights so thought basic accommodation would be ok. However for the cost of it (there were 5 of us) we should have stayed at the airport like another group on our flights did. Just make sure you can cover up against insects and have insect repellent. I do not recommend the Transit...

Probably like most people we picked to stay here because it was close to the airport which suited our late night arrival at Tonga from NZ and our departure the next day for Vava'u. The place, even though we were expecting 'basic' was far less. This was is not so much a comment on the buildings, but on the cleanliness....

We landed late and left early the next morning. Transport to and from the airport was included. The room was very basic, cold shower, crackers and jam for breakfast. It served its purpose.

We stayed overnight, arriving late and leaving early the next morning to go on to Va'vau Island in...

Our flight arrived at 1050pm from Sydney and our flight to Vava'u was at 0830am the next morning so we thought that we would get an extra hours sleep by staying close to the airport. The pick-up went fine and when we arrived at the lodge there was one person who pointed us to our "room" and then disappeared never...

We arrived into Tonga on a flight at 2am, and were due to fly out on a domestic flight at 10am the same day. We needed somewhere to stay near the airport for a few hours sleep. The Transit Lodge is just a 5 minute drive. It is very basic, but clean and the beds are comfortable. Breakfast was included...
