The Reef Resort stands in a class of its own in Vava'u. Sure it is more remote from the main centre of Vava'u but that is one of it's good points. The owners, Renate and Josef, make you feel welcome from the time they greet you on the jetty and it keeps getting better. The food, the service, the friendly... More

Our hosts, Josef and Renata ensured that this was a holiday we will never forget. The food and service at the Reef Resort were amazing. Josef and Renata also helped us organize whale swim, diving and adventure buggy tours - that were incredible. The accommodation was clean, spacious and romantic and the views were breath taking.

Lovely, clean and peaceful haven. We had the top fale and the views of the ocean were great. Our hosts could not do enough for us and the food was good- particularly the soups and grilled lobster dishes. Highly recommended. Will be back even though the weather was not kind to us!

A small resort with a big heart. Lovely lovely hosts and staff. The food is unbelievably good - fresh local products with European flair. Home made cakes, yougert, bread as well! We took the half board option and now need to go on a diet! Note - the resort is the only place on Kapa Island where you can get... More

The island is only a 5 minute boat ride away from the mainland. There are beautyful villages reachable over short tracks with some hidden and remote beaches in between. We had one of the Fales on the hill with an amazing view over the whole bay. Renate and Josef, expats from Germany, as well as the rest of the staff... More

My wife and I had an excellent romantic get-away at the Reef Resort. We were the first bookings for this year and what a treat was in store for us. Josef and Renate are great hosts and made sure that our stay was unforgettable. We enjoyed a nice nature hike from the Resort to the picturesque anchorage of Port Maurelle.... More

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
