If it is peace, relaxation, great food and very friendly staff on a beautiful tiny island that you are looking for in your holiday then Fafa Island will not disappoint.The traditional fales are very private with each having its own beach access. For those that want more action the boat goes to the big island everyday. There are many island... More

The Peace, the serenity, the isolation, the beautiful warm and well-mannered staff, your own little private beach.... Makes up the magic of Fafa Island. From the moment you step onto the motor-yatch your holiday begin, as you soak in the beautiful island views whilst being transported from the main island to Fafa Island. The traditional Fale are simple and beautifully... More

Fafa Island Resort is a wonderful place, so beautiful & relaxing. The staff are so great, extremely friendly & helpful. Our fale fell a bit short we thought though. It was quite dark inside with not much lighting & made reading quite hard in the day time & especially at night. other people in different fale's did not have this... More

We have just returned home from 9 nights in Tonga, 4 of which were spent at Fafa Island. What a picture perfect location, what stunningly designed & built fales, with the huge parents' room at one end & the children's at the other, separated by a beautiful outdoor bathroom & open air, solar heated shower, set just 15 metres from...

My wife Linda and I stayed at Fafa Island from 5th July 2014 to 12th July 2014. I am suffering from a chronic back injury so a short flight from Auckland was required. The resort is owned by Stephanie and her husband and managed by Martin. True hospitality icons in every sense of the word. The motor yacht out from... More

A great relaxing holiday. Very friendly staff. Nothing is to much trouble. You can even just go there on the ferry for a day. Certainly has great food very reasonably priced. There are Parrots and Pukekos on the Island. A beautiful piece of paradise in the South Pacific, we wished we could of stayed longer.

High quality relaxation and reasonably priced. We weren't used to converting the Pa'anga to NZ$ and had a pleasant surprise on our return home to find the restaurant costs were not as much as expected. Don't expect a TV or electric kettle in your fale - this small exclusive resort runs off solar power and offers an alternative experience to... More

WOW... What a place! If you are looking for an island paradise in Tonga or anywhere in the South Pacific Fafa Island Resort is the place to go! I don't want to give too much away and spoil it for potential guests but I will say everything was exceptional. The only criticism I have is I didn't book a long... More

Spending a week on a little island just off the main island in Tonga was the relaxation I needed - I spent most of my time with shoes off, reading in a hammock, or taking in the ocean views. A walk around or through the island was around 20 minutes, and the snorkelling off the island was also great. The... More

The jungle noises take some time to get used to but that is all part of the enchantment of living on this island. Amazing views, helpful staff, great food although we did our own lunches with biscuits, gherkins, cheese and peanuts and that saved a lot of money. If money isn't an object, the restaurant is beautiful and right on... More
