Saia and his wife were so friendly, funny, generous and welcoming. We were only there for one night but I would absolutely stay there again. You are made to feel like part of the family. Rooms very clean and comfortable.

Felt right at home. They are very accommodating and lovely family. Felt very safe and secure at night. Saia assisted me when I initially stayed in Tonga. Now it's my second home. I wouldn't stay any place else.

If you're looking for a genuine experience, this is the place! I only had one night but it was one of the most memorable I've had on holiday. Instead of just picking me up from the airport at 8.30pm, I was taken on my own personal tour of the town, where we stopped to watch the Miss Tonga competition and... More

And the breakfast was Amazing. In the evening we watched with our friend Olini ( daughter of the owner) a nice movie. They easily organise you an airport and... More

I stayed here with my Nana. It was her first time at a pacific island and it was real Tongan experience right from leaving the airport. We got picked up at the airport by a nice, interesting man and his beautiful young granddaughter. Before arriving at the lodge we got taken to 2 of their "secret places" which was beautiful... More

Very clean, amenities of a shower/bathroom/kitchen to share with other travelers are available. For fees, hosts have the services to wash your laundry, pick up and drop off from airport, day tours of the island available or a car rental to tour yourself. The owner Jay and his wife live close by and his adult daughter/son-in-law/granddaughter live downstairs separately. They're... More

The couple that is running this place is extremely friendly and supportive. Most Tongans are friendly but the feeling here was rather staying with friends than at a B&B. In the morning breakfast is spent by sitting together at a big round table with a revolving wheel with all the food in the middle. There is plenty to choose from... More

...is not something I can provide (sorry, Saia :). I spent fantastic days at Olini Lodge. Saia and his family are supernice, extremely affectionate and helpful. You feel like a part of the family.

Quite simply amazing. From the moment we arrived until we departed it was like being part of the family! Saia and the whole gang made us both feel so welcome and showed us places we would never have seen. Can't speak highly enough of this place!!

The whole family are all of the above and more and made our experience of Tonga unforgettable. Very clean facilities, excellent food and an ideal location to explore the island - only... More
