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

This is a lovely spot. We stayed in a premium fale which has an ensuite - we had a great view over the lagoon which is ideal for snorkelling at high tide. Eating meals together is a great idea and the food was plentiful and fresh - the resort operates 2 fishing boats and brings in fresh fish on most... More

Have recently returned from an amazing holiday with Moana, Hola and their team at the Ha'atafu Beach resort. Would like to highly recommend this fantastic holiday destination. We took our 6 month old daughter and felt very comfortable doing so. The resort is super clean and safe for all. Sitting on the white sandy beach watching whales swim past was... More

We fled a hard New Zealand winter of overwork, and Ha'atafu Beach Resort was the perfect antidote. From the staff to the amenities, the gardens to the food, everyone and everything is charming and perfectly conducive to a relaxing time. There's very little in the way of "activities" or tourist attractions, and this is perfect! The only "activity" we engaged... More
