Malo e lelei from the Kingdom of Tonga! If you are looking for a relaxed, friendly, homestyle "beach garden getaway" in the Kingdom of Tonga, the Heilala Holiday Lodge on Ha'atafu Beach at Kanokupolu may just be the place you have been looking for. Over 1km of sandy beach, wave surfing, snorkeling, or simply relaxing in your hammock. All the best and we hope to welcome you in our little peace of paradise soon.

A simple and humble holiday lodge. A far distance from town but based in probably the most scenic location on the island. Watch the waled or dolphins swim past as the sun goes down. Pat panda the dog. Go swim with the whales, take an island tour, go to a cultural night. All

Stayed for 5days from 1st Sept. Very basic accommodation, even our luxury false. We had a nice meal on our first night and then the chef went off sick and we had to eat elsewhere the rest of our stay. The communal kitchen is pretty awful. The beach was stunning and we found a

Malo e lelei Erins S, Thanks for your message! Yes there is a fridge/freezer in the communal kitchen. All our Beds are a standard medium firm. If you find "on arrival" that you need a softer mattress, please talk to us and we will be happy to see if we have any spares that better suit your needs. Deep Blue can in some cases collect from our Lodge, it will be best to check this with them, the deep Blue boat departs from the wharf in Nuku'alofa. Also, there is no need to pre-book scooters... in fact we do not currently offer pre-booking for scooters until guests have arrived. Hope this helps, Ofa atu and See you soon!

No worries at all ;-)... check out from the unit is 10am, however you can certainly still make use of the facility during the day until your departure for the flight at 2.40pm. Malo

Hi, I was wondering what difference between the two room types are and are there any with sea views?
Malo e lelei and many thanks for your question. As Heilala is not a typical beach front resort and has been build with a traditional Village living concept in mind... all our fales are Village (garden view) fales. It is possible to see the ocean through the foliage (natural wind/storm barrier) in some places, however it can not be considered an open ocean view. Hope the info helps. Ofa atu

I recall scooters were around $50 pa'anga a day. Beer is around the $5-7 mark.
