We have just returned from the most perfect week in Tonga , at this fabulous holiday spot...i agree with Halcyontwo about being reluctant to create more awareness of this wonderful place, the relaxing but totally comfortable atmosphere... picture perfect beach, great snorkelling in the lagoon, kayaking, wonderful food, and perhaps the best part of all - the people! Kindness and...

Located on the beach in the north west of Tongatapu, this might seem isolated but is idyllic. With swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, surfing, whales (in season) or just sitting on the beach under the shade there is plenty to do, or just relax. We had a premium beachfront fale with sea views, large deck (under cover and in the sun)...

I am reluctant to increase awareness further on this fabulous holiday experience for fear that it will become difficult to getting a booking, but I can't speak highly enough of this resort. It is family run and from the first minute we were greeted by Hola at the airport until the time he dropped us off again we were treated...

We spent 4 nights at this wonderful resort and it was everything we dreamed of !!! From the beautiful fale - clean, well equipped and the most magical view ever!!!! It is not often in the western world that the reality is better than the advertising but in this case I can honestly say it was. Moana, her husband and...

This resort is superb for good old fashioned R & R. The views are magnificent from the beach front fales, and the breakfast and evening meals are excellent. We spent most of our time snorkeling, kayaking and reading. This is not the resort for you if you like mass produced resorts. it is for people who want something unique, and...

Had a great time during our 5 nights here end of July 2016. Awesome going out early morning with the locals to catch fish for the resort. 40AUD for about 3 hours which is a really good price. I caught 6 yellow fin tuna on a hand line and when the locals had caught what they needed, then they let...

Lovely place to take your family to, we had a nearly 4 and nearly 2 year old and it was the most relaxed we can ever imagine while being on holiday! Great beach and amazing food, highly recommend the fishing experience too!

Your average soulless glitzy resort this is certainly not - if your preference is for a genuine escape from your busy life Ha'atafu is just what you've been looking for. Our family fale was spacious and spotlessly clean. Included meals (breakfast and dinner) were fantastic - no reason to go hungry, and plenty of variety. Lunch is also available from...

Ha'atafu Beach Resort provides an ultimate family getaway. There are enough meals and activities included not to need to spend a cent (well perhaps minus those drinks!). Family friendly and family run and our hosts are second to none. The location is idyllic, the scenery superb and these must be the best cooks on the Island - we certainly ate...

This is a resort which is so relaxing, wonderfully hosted by two gorgeous sisters and their partners (and the lovely staff) with a seemingly endless capacity to both assist and create the space for people who are staying to simply enjoy their space. The fale balconies, garden and the beach all provide quite places to enjoy and read. A lovely...
