Stayed at the Black Pearl Suites in Nuku’alofa, amazing hospitality from the owner, Naisa. We had a Sword Fish meal that an Olympic pole vaulter could not jump over, it was enormous! Delicious, and the only time I’ve tasted swordfish similar was when I visited 1 year ago. The best Swordfish and the best Steaks in The Kingdom!
great rooms. Warm atmosphere.... but the swordfish steaks that could not fit on your plate... and the accompanying sauce were mind blowingly mind blowing. I notice from recent reviews they are still serving these delicious swordfish steaks and i will be back to Black Pearl for several of these during my stay next month.Keep up the great work.
I have had the great fortune of staying twice at the Black Pearl Suites while on business. The lodging is among the highest quality options available not only in Tonga, but throughout the South Pacific. Book a room upstairs. These rooms are clean, comfortable, and convenient. Excellent decor comprising traditional Tongan and South Pacific carvings and traditional artwork/crafts. A cold beer or glass of wine sitting out on the upstairs balcony is an excellent way to wind-down after a long day of work. On-site dining is not to be missed; their swordfish steaks (served some weeknights) and traditional loo (served Sundays, following lot/church services) are delicious. Wifi is consistent and fast. The owners and staff are among the friendliest, most accommodating, and most professional hosts one could expect. Guests I met while there included other foreign business professionals, international donor agency representatives, and diplomats. In short: if you are fortunate enough, like me you will end up calling the Black Pearl your home away from home while on business in Tongatapu.
I stayed at The Black Pearl Suites for 7 days. My room was very large with fresh sea breezes from the doors that open out onto the balcony. The Management and staff made me feel like I was part of their family, nothing was too much trouble. This hotel has an awesome atmosphere and decor, with great views across to the ocean ( across the road) This hotel is located in a quiet position and is a flat 30 min walk to the Royal Palace. I recommend you try the Swordfish from their restaurant, it is THE BEST swordfish I have ever eaten ! Black Pearl are also known to cook the best steaks in Tonga. I will definitely return to The Black Pearl. I highly recommend The Black Pearl Suites.
The staff at Black Pearl are very friendly and helpful - I've regularly stayed here for the last 8 years and enjoy the comfort and quietness of this grand colonial mansion. It's fair to say that the rooms and facilities are quaint but they have the basics - airconditioning, comfortable beds, hot showers, TV, and they are clean and tidy. I most enjoy the view from the upstairs balcony looking out to sea - either with a beer after work or at breakfast time before a busy day in town.
