Thank you for your review after your recent visit to Scenic Hotel Tonga. Yes we are away from town but this also means it is very quiet and peaceful here. The local beaches are only a matter of 4 minutes away so if you want to escape the town we are the ideal location. Thank you for your comments on... More

Very convenient to the airport. Love the free transfers to and from the airport. Very handy when flights arrive very early in the morning. Quite comfortable. Nice decor. Would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your review after staying at Scenic Hotel Tonga. We are indeed very handy to the airport and ideal for a stopover between flights. We are also great for longer stays also with a great swimming pool and food and beverage outlets so maybe next time stay a little longer :-). Regards Graeme Horsley General Manager More

We treated ourselves to the Scenic Hotel on our last day/night in Tonga. Loved the gorgeous pool (all to ourselves!), king sized bed, relaxed drinks at the bar, good food at the restaurant and friendly, efficient staff. It's a good mid-way base to see Tongatapu sights on the west (blow holes and natural land bridge) and east (tombs and trilithon)... More

My wife and I shared a few nights at the Scenic Hotel in transit through to Vava'u. Used as base whilst we toured parts of the main island. Excellent staff, great food, and wonderful new paint. I knew there was a refurbishment in place and this did not distract. Will be great when complete. In the meantime we enjoyed all... More

This is a huge, once-grand hotel that seems to be getting revamped. It is right by the airport and has a free shuttle service which makes it very convenient if you're passing through, but is around a half hour drive to town ($60 taxi ride). The rooms are reasonably spacious, with genuinely king-sized beds. Wifi is only accessible in the... More

We had a group of 4 couples staying one night while passing through on our way to pick up a sailboat for a week of sailing. Very convenient to the airport especially if you have another flight out early in the morning. Thought the rooms were sufficient and cozy. Staff was very friendly. The restaurant was reasonably priced with good... More

The hotel is ideally located if you are passing through to Fiji or outer islands. Literally one minute from the airport they have great transportation service. However, they are quite a ways from any other activity. The staff is very friendly, but efficiency may be another matter. We found the room cold on our second visit. After waiting half an... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our property after your recent stay.

Stayed for a few days in winter. The Hotel is definitely on a grand scale and lots of work is happening to make it grander and to shore up the service and facilities. The new management couple Graeme and Carmel are making a huge difference. The rooms are large, clean and tidy, have a/c and the hot water is worth... More

We only stayed here one night. The overall facility is great. Our room left a little to be desired. The initial impression as you enter the hotel is excellent. There is a beautiful lobby.

After staying at various establishments throughout Tongatapu, this definitely outshines the rest, if you are looking for a modern feel, clean and well presented hotel. Don't be fooled by the poor condition on the exterior walls when you arrive! The managers and staff did a great job and helped us out with anything we needed help with. All very friendly... More
