We did a lot of online research before we decided to book to stay at Ha'atafu Beach Resort for the entirety of our 12 day trip to Tonga. We were looking for a relaxing holiday away, and that is definitely what we got!! Moana and Hola were wonderful hosts - friendly, incredibly helpful, & went out of their way to... More

I say hats off because a trip to the resort when I was 22 years old, living in New Zealand and a keen surfer left me with wonderful memories of the time spent there and now, 30 years later (after a recent trip back home to NZ from Paris) I have once again been left with happy memories. This time... More

This resort is a great stay on the main island. We had a Superior Fale which had private bath and screened windows and was very comfortable. We are not surfers, but enjoyed watching the surfers and walking on the beach. Kayaks are available, but they were a bit short on snorkelling gear. Breakfast and a buffet dinner were included in...

Ha'atafu Beach Resort is a must-stay place in Tonga! Moana and Hola were fantastic hosts, really friendly and approachable, nothing was too much trouble at all. Surf spots right outside with board hire included. Use of the sea kayaks was excellent as was the snorkels. The coral and fish are definitely worth repeated exploring. Freshly caught tuna everyday made into... More

Originally booked only 5 nights on a 9 night trip. Ended up staying there the entire time! We did alot of research... More

My family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers stayed at this fantastic resort in April 2015. Our lovely hosts were Hola and Moana (Steve and Sesika's daughter) and nothing was too much trouble. Hola picked us up from the airport and we picked up beer on the way as the resort is not licensed. The beer was a reasonable price.... More

Our family, including children aged 11, 13 and 14, visited Tonga for the first time recently, and on advice received in these reviews chose to stay at Ha’atafu. What a fabulous decision. We enjoyed everything about our stay and are looking forward to returning next summer. An endlessly giving and caring family and their wider team seamlessly run the resort.... More

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
