We've travelled all over the world and Serenity Beach Resort on Oeleva Is will always have a special place in our memories. If you want paradise all to yourself, a private island all to yourself, with sand like velvet, and water like a turquoise jewel, you will have it all here. What dreams are made of! Darn, now I want... More

Simple but comfortable accommodation in private cottages with private beach access. Lovely food and excellent service. Humpback whales wave at you from the warm waters. What else do you need on your dream vacation?

My husband and I have been here twice now- once with our kids and this time just the two of us. Patti and Semi are wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome and part of the Serenity Family. We were able to unwind, relax, and be at peace for a whole week. This is a perfect place if you... More

We have traveled from the US three times now to stay at Serenity Beaches and just wish we could live there! It is heaven to stay in our own bungalow by the ocean. This time we stayed in another oceanside Fale and really have decided that we enjoy them all. The hammock time is glorious with the waves washing away... More

We are well travelled throughout the Pacific Islands - Fiji, Cook Islands, Niue, Tonga, etc. and without a doubt Serenity Beaches Resort is as good as it gets. This was our second time here (our previous time was in July of 2010) The location in the Ha'apai Islands is simply stunning. Spectacular beaches, water you cannot believe (colour of blue... More

We were looking for a 'get away' holiday and weren't disappointed. A flight via Real Tonga airlines from Nuku'alofa to nearby island and then a boat ride to Serenity. We had the best two weeks ever! Many people come with the view to swimming with the whales, however we were happy just to enjoy the Tongan experience of a remote... More

For an off the grid holiday on a beautiful island in Ha'apai, Serenity lives up to it's name. Accessible only by boat via an internal flight into Ha'apai, Uoleva Island has pristine beaches with almost no one around, incredible blue water and coral reefs just off the resort beaches. The stars at night are amazing, the brightest I've ever seen.... More

Patti and Sami have created a truly amazing resort on one of the most idyllic and isolated islands we've ever visited. There are only five places to stay on Uoleva. Four are fairly basic while Serenity stands alone for it's uniqueness. Patti has five open air Balinese bungalows on the calm side of the island, a couple of new cement/thatched... More

Stayed two weeks at Serenity. It is indeed serene. What Patti has created on Uoleva is incredible in spite of the huge setback after cyclone Ian. Our little concrete en suite room at the "back" of the island was ideal although it was a bit windier than the "front" (only a 2 minute walk!). Clean and comfortable and serviced daily.... More
