My girlfriend Alex and I were lucky enough to be recommended Ha'atafu Beach Resort on our recent trip to Tonga to attend a friend's wedding. Not knowing a great deal about Tonga we did not know what to expect. However Moana and her family make you feel welcome the meeting you are picked up at the airport. They run a... More

We just got back from 2 weeks at Ha'atafu and on such a high. It was an amazing trip. We have been on quite a few south pacific island holidays and this was easily the very best. We have two kids, age 7 and 8. From the moment we arrived, the boys were off exploring, climbing coconut trees, discovering 'hideouts',... More

Moana, Hola, Steve and family were amazing hosts and all of the staff who worked with them were always cheerful and keen to help make our stay a memorable one. Think that this is an ideal place for families, surfers and those wanting a relaxing holiday by the beach. No real need to have lots of local money if you... More

This is the pacific paradise that i had dreamed about. A lovely beach, brilliant blue sea, with coconut palms and other tropical tees swaying in the breeze. Moana, Hola and Steve were great hosts. I went out fishing Tongan style, and landed several yellow fin tuna. They were used as part of the evening communal meal. The food was really... More

We recently stayed at Ha'atafu Beach Resort and it really was the best beach holiday ever! We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, utterly magnificent food, spotless accommodation and of course being right on a beautiful beach that was perfect for small children and surfing grown ups!

We just returned to NZ from Tongatapu where we stayed at the Ha'Atafu Beach resort for 10 days. We had chosen this resort based almost entirely on the feedback from others on Trip Advisor - but you never really know until you get there - right? We had chosen one of the two rooms that have an ensuite (which I... More
