We stayed at Blue banana for 11 days. It is a beautiful place, with wonderful people. Blue banana is a tranquil resort, great for relax, nice swimming and snorkeling in the lagoon, which is just at your doorstep. Chris and Shane are very friendly and nice people, who gave us a lot of new information about Tonga and the history... More

We just spend 8 days at Blue Banana, a tropical paradise. This experience for us was one of our best holidays with fantastic hosts, all cabins with unbeatable beach frontage, environmentally friendly and sustainable- a total relaxed location. The breakfast basket and fresh fish platter which Chris and Shane can provide are absolutely recommended. Overall their webpage complies with everything... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in the Maui Fale at the Blue Banana. It was a lovely, secluded spot right on the water. We loved being able to see the water when we woke up in the morning and have breakfast in our garden overlooking the beach. We felt like we were able to truly relax as well... More

We spent 10 days at Blue Banana and were blown away with it and the hosts Chris and Shane. An absolutely amazing couple who made our stay one we will never forget. Blue Banana does not have the resort style facilities but that is not what we wanted. We got good clean basic facilities where we were comfortable and were... More

With the cabins right on the beach and a mesmerizing ocean view to wake up to every morning Blue Banana Beach House is just perfect for a much needed relaxing holiday. We stayed in the Boat House on our first week and after returning from Vava'u we stayed in the Maui for 12 days. Both cabins are very clean and... More

If you're after a cheap and cheerful getaway in the sun, the Blue Banana is an excellent choice. Chris and Shane are charming hosts who make you feel more like friends than guests. The cabins are very clean and perfectly equipped for basic catering. There is even a bbq for general use and the fish platters are very much reccomended... More

We recently spent a week relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the beach at Blue Banana. Chris and Shane were wonderful and provided all that we needed. A highlight for us was seeing whales swim past very close to the shore. Being able to self cater was a plus and a bus trip into the markets to buy fresh fish... More

A week was not long enough, a great place to relax and enjoy. Chris and Shane were excellent hosts and went the extra mile for Marg when they discovered it was her birthday, which we really appreciated. A special place to be. Vei the driver is a great personality and good fun, and nothing is too much trouble for him.... More

We stayed at Blue Banana for 7 nights in the Treehouse. The trip from the airport to town to shop at the fresh produce market was so good. The fresh vege on offer is superb - great selection.. The fish available in Tonga fabulous - delicious mahimahi and swordfish. Having a barbeque and fridge freezer for food storage and cooking... More
