Ha'atafu Beach Resort provides an ultimate family getaway. There are enough meals and activities included not to need to spend a cent (well perhaps minus those drinks!). Family friendly and family run and our hosts are second to none. The location is idyllic, the scenery superb and these must be the best cooks on the Island - we certainly ate... More

This is a resort which is so relaxing, wonderfully hosted by two gorgeous sisters and their partners (and the lovely staff) with a seemingly endless capacity to both assist and create the space for people who are staying to simply enjoy their space. The fale balconies, garden and the beach all provide quite places to enjoy and read. A lovely... More

We stayed at Ha'atafu for 11 days and had such an amazing and relaxing time. This is a great place to go to relax and unwind, however there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. The resort is well kept with pretty grounds and modern/clean fales- there is certainly nothing pretentious about this place.The snorkelling right off of the... More

This resort at the end of the main island of Tonga is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. The location is superb, right by the beach with amazing views. Great surf and the reef means swimming and snorkling is possible regardless of the conditions. The best part about the resort is the people who run... More

We were recommended this wee gem by friends. It was everything we were looking for. A resort without the cheesiness!... incredible location, beautiful, clean little fales, the best snorkelling I've ever been witness to, a wonderfully safe little piece of paradise the children could roam. The hosts were so incredibly warm and welcoming, yet respectful of your privacy. And there... More

Our family couldn't stay away! We actually left for a few days and had to return because there was no place like Ha'atafu! We appreciated the super clean and comfortable fale. The kayaks were an added bonus to what the ocean gear we had with us! The food and service was excellent. We especially loved the evening "family style" meals... More

To any family wishing to go on a family holiday to Tonga this is the best place to stay with the family. Everything you need is at your door, the beach, snorkeling, canoeing and most of the food is absolutely amazing breakfast but the dinner OMG is delicious everything is fresh and what ever they catch on the day they...

A wonderful welcome to Tonga! The pick up from town went smoothy and the drive out into the county was fascinating. The environment of the resort is beautiful, the room comfortable and clean, the food delicious, local and fresh (with the yummiest 'Ota Ika' I tried in Tonga!). I took advantage of a local tour of historic sites - Able... More

I spent a long weekend at this resort in May and was pleasantly surprised from beginning to end. The service was amazing starting with pick up and transport to the airport. Each meal was full of flavour and variety, including fresh fish that the resort hauled in daily from the waters in front of the resort. The reef was beautiful... More
