We spent 4 nights at this wonderful resort and it was everything we dreamed of !!! From the beautiful fale - clean, well equipped and the most magical view ever!!!! It is not often in the western world that the reality is better than the advertising but in this case I can honestly say it was. Moana, her husband and... More

This resort is superb for good old fashioned R & R. The views are magnificent from the beach front fales, and the breakfast and evening meals are excellent. We spent most of our time snorkeling, kayaking and reading. This is not the resort for you if you like mass produced resorts. it is for people who want something unique, and... More

Had a great time during our 5 nights here end of July 2016. Awesome going out early morning with the locals to catch fish for the resort. 40AUD for about 3 hours which is a really good price. I caught 6 yellow fin tuna on a hand line and when the locals had caught what they needed, then they let... More

Lovely place to take your family to, we had a nearly 4 and nearly 2 year old and it was the most relaxed we can ever imagine while being on holiday! Great beach and amazing food, highly recommend the fishing experience too!

Your average soulless glitzy resort this is certainly not - if your preference is for a genuine escape from your busy life Ha'atafu is just what you've been looking for. Our family fale was spacious and spotlessly clean. Included meals (breakfast and dinner) were fantastic - no reason to go hungry, and plenty of variety. Lunch is also available from... More

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

Have just returned from a week here - group of 14 including 6 under the age of 7. Young and older had a fabulous time. Great family run small business that provides everything a family group could want. Amazing meals and a very safe beach and swimming.

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
