We didn't stay at the resort but attended one of their evening cultural experiences. Costs was Tongan Pa'anga $40 each plus $10 each for transport to and from our hotel in Nuku'alofa. It's difficult to provide a fair review of these sorts of evenings as everyones expectations are different. We have attended similar cultural evenings in Samoa and Vanuatu and... More

Extremely hard to find this hotel on Tonga's un-signposted roads. Steep dark steps down to what appeared to be a lovely long beach (one of the few in Tonga apparently not consisting of sharp coral and rocks). Good band playing in a very pleasant natural area, but all this was spoiled by the megalomaniac proprietor who insisted on monopolising the... More

We decided to end our 2 week trip in Tonga with this show. It was a great experience. Beautiful location and scenic views. Great dances and entertainment as well as the food. I definitely recommend this to tourists as well as Tongan visitors that haven't yet been.

I ended up booking here as my preferred choices were booked up for Easter. Was lucky the island night was on as it was amazing. However, one night staying here was one too many for a solo traveller. No power to charge phone (which was only camera I had), no food available (they didn't tell me to bring any), no... More

We attended the Friday night show and buffet and were very impressed. The quality of the dance show was the best we had seen and highly recommend to any visitors to the Kingdom. The dance and cultural show was performed in a cave with seating and is a nice touch by the resort. The buffet was great, a lot of... More

If you ever visit Tonga, this is a must visit place for their cultural show and dinner!!! When you first approach the covered arrival area, you are drawn already to the sound of the pounding waves. What a spectacular view as you descend beachside. Leave your stillettos at home as this is all about embracing nature! Walk barefoot on the... More

The setting and friendly staff will ensure this is a night you will remember. A must visit when staying in Tonga. Excellent value for money. We did not stay in the... More

I attended a wedding here at Oholei. The Beach is beautiful, the food amazing and the entertainment great! It was a real treat being able to visit Oholei and its beauty. People in Tonga are really friendly so it goes without saying that the staff were very accommodating. We were treated to stay the night at Oholei and it was... More

Not to be missed, a fabulous night of music, traditional food & Polynesian dancers. Very good, Value for money & great entertainment! Add the ambience of a moonlit night & the dancers performed in a Cave! For me, this was my best night out in Tonga, shared with friends!
