Unoriginal title but it describes exactly the experience at the Reef Resort. I can only repeat what has already been said below. The hosts are wonderful - friendly, helpful but not over-powering. The rooms are simple but luxurious. The view from the chalet was unforgettable! However, it is the food that is spectacular! The fresh fish and lobster matched anything... More

What can I say about the Reef Resort that truly captures the experience? My husband and I stayed at the Reef Resort for a week, and we were utterly sad when we had to depart. Josef and Renata are wonderful hosts, along with the rest of the staff on Kapa Island. The experience, scenery, relaxation, and food were incredible! This... More

A gem of a resort mainly through the never slipping attention of the owners, who are lovely people on top. i have never felt so taken care of at any other place we staid (there were seven of us), the attention to detail and the friendliness are difficult to find anywhere. the food prepared by Stephan was out of this...

GOOOOOOD What a wonderful place this is hidden away on a small island off Vava’u in the islands of Tonga. We were greeted like old friends and pampered all the time we were there. Our beach side fale (bungalow) was bright and clean and just a few steps down to the beach which was swept every day to remove unwanted... More

As all the other reviews have said, Reef Resort is an absolute gem! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel like special guests, but also like part of the family. Josef, Renate and their staff are amazing hosts. It’s rare to find service that is so personalised, warm, friendly and genuine. Nothing was too much trouble. The... More

It's the personal touch that makes it work. When Josef comes to you in the day and shows you a freshly caught snapper or asks how do you want your tenderloin to be cooked that night, that's pretty awesome. Or when Renata found me another pair of shorts because all my clothes were in the wash or personally called Real... More

One of the best holidays I have ever had. Made up of a combination of lovely surroundings, amazing beach (15 mins walk by trail) and wonderful hosts in Josef and Renate. Josef's cooking is stunning and he went out of his way to prepare an amazing lobster meal for myself and the family for my 40th. Renate was great with... More

I'm sure it is clear by now that the Reef Resort is absolutely fabulous, but I'll add my two cents anyway. Joseph and Renate are so considerate, sweet and attentive and take care of every little thing. They manage to do this without being stuffy or overly formal, so the whole feeling is warm and homey. I felt perfectly comfortable... More

This place is fantastic. You will never have better hosts or better food. You are crazy if you consider staying elsewhere. I stayed here whilst on a whaleswim tour. Josef food was amazing - especially the seafood. You will leave this place feeling very relaxed and spoilt. The resort is also based on a beautiful reef, which is excellent for... More
