We visited Ha'atafu after our friends raved about their visits, it lived up to our expectations. Small, beautifully kept grounds, clean, friendly hosts, quiet. The food was delicious, plentiful and nutritious. We had a falei without facilities but it was never an issue. A great place to relax, swim, snorkel, kayak etc. Hope to return.

We've just had an amazing holiday staying in this wonderful resort. We have three kids 5, 3 and 1. We stayed in a family fale with five beds, one double, three singles and a cot for the baby. It was perfect for us. We were in the garden, so could only glimpse the sea, but the beach is so close... More

We stayed just 2 days/nights at the end of a busy week in Nuku'alofa - having done our research via Trip Advisor, Ha'atafu more than met our expectations. We wanted and needed a relaxing break before going back home and Ha'atafu sure provided that. It is a delightful family run small accommodation offering an unconventional experience. We would not describe... More

Just returned from a family holiday at this lovely haven. Seeking an unconventional but idyllic location Tonga and Ha'atafu seemed to fit the brief. The resort sits on a beach on the main island about a 40 minute transfer from the airport. We were accommodated in one off 11 fales where the maximum resort occupancy is just 25 guests. The... More

We had a wonderful stay at Ha'atafu. We went away as two families. We were 3 adults and stayed in Fale 11. We had our own bathroom and fridge in the room which was really handy, especially for cooling your drinks. This little resort offers plenty in a relaxed environment. You can lay on the beach all day or take... More

We had a family garden fale. 5 of us in one room. Very comfortable beds , very clean - we slept like logs. Brilliant snorkelling and kayaking. Food was a highlight - fresh fish caught every morning by the resort's owner and served up every night in various guises - sashimi, marinated, curry, with capers and butter, thai style ....... More

I recently spent a week at the Ha'atafu Beach Resort with my husband and a group of friends for a Wedding. I have to say that from the moment we got there to the moment we left, we felt welcome and cared for. Moana, Hola and the staff were polite and friendly. They were more than willing to accommodate for... More

Moana, Hola, and the family and staff at Ha'atafu are some of the kindest, most wonderful people we have ever met. We had family and friends from NZ, Australia, and the US all travel to Tonga for our wedding at Ha'atafu. We stayed for just over a week and could not have had a better time! Everyone at Ha'atafu helped... More

The Ha'atafu Beach Resort was recommended by a friend. It lived up to all expectations. The location is amazing, right on a beautiful beach and tropical reef. The staff are all very friendly and the family that own the resort all work hard at making your stay great. We snorkelled, fished, walked, & relaxed for seven lazy days. The food... More

Had booked the trip to go surfing and fishing plus live like a local. A knee injury eliminated me from the first two but still had an amazing time. Steve was very accommodating and would provide an excellent service. I would highly recommend this place to everyone! The food and chilli sauce were AMAZING!
