Absolute beach front nestled in a tropical plantation on the Royal Estate of Kanokupolu, right in the middle of the most beautiful sandy beach, close to marine reserve. All fales have prime beachfront positions right above the waters edge making them the closest accommodation to the water in Tonga. Whales swim past your door. All are fully self-contained & have great views from the windows & personal decks for relaxing solitude.

My family and I use to come here during Christmas for a few days. Haven't been back since 2013? IT WAS AMAZING. You really get the island experience. Simple but beautiful! Chris and Shane the owners are wonderful people. I miss this place. Will make it my mission to return next

Firstly, Chris the owner is so lovely, she will make you feel instantly relaxed and you can tell she has a real passion for what she does. Secondly - the resort is just gorgeous and by far one of the best in Tongatapu. Located on the western side of Tonga on the most gorgeous

This is a great place, both Chris and Shane are great and very helpful. The location is awesome, with coral outside and humpback whales which swim by - my son paddled boarded next to one 30 meters away. I have two caveats to my whole hearted endorsement: The wifi. Yes there

Response from ShaneTonga, Owner at Blue Banana Beach House
Responded Oct 2, 2018
Thanks for the review Ian and so glad you enjoyed your stay. In our endeavour to offer free WiFi we've had to restrict the hours due to past over-consumption by some guests. We have a limited data package which is fine for e-mails etc. and offer this free to our all guests. TCC and Digicel provide phone data at reasonable rates if guests wish to download movies etc. Sorry the mozzies are out at the moment with the recent rain and warmer winds. This will be similar throughout the tropics. One of the prices we pay living in a warm climate, in a natural setting. Fortunately they come & then GO again. All our accommodation is fully screened & we supply coils & electric tab burners. The beach remains mozzie free :) Cheers,
