We were there for a short stay in 2007. The place has huge potential, the grove where the hutts are scattered is gorgeous, the fale are well built and look more sturdy and solid than most on the island. The breakfast was huge and very good. The only drawback was the sad overall feeling .. maybe because we were then... More

I thought I should give an update of Billy's Place since the last reviews, which had factored into my decision in choosing this place. This is the kind of place that grows on you after the initial shock and repulsion. We arrived on Saturday afternoon and were greeted by Latu and Ka'unga who showed us to our room. Nice ladies...

I stayed at Billy's Place for 3 nights and absolutely loved it there. It was quite and definitely safe for our children aged 7 and 4 to go exploring, and great value for money. Breakfast was beautiful, pikelets andfruit straight from his own gardens, he had pineapples, mangoes, paw paw. It might not have been a 5 star hotel but... More

Yes, I loved Billy's (although Billy himself is a different matter; he's a bit on the taciturn side :-) When his American "wife" Sandy was still in residence, things were a bit brighter at Billy's Place but since her (indefinite?) departure, things have become a bit rundown. Tongans are not too keen on maintenance work :-) Billy is an ex-boxing... More

We stayed in one of the fales which, I must say, was cool and we didn't have the mosquitoes bother us too much. We opened the screened windows and enjoyed the cool seas breezes. I travelled with my husband and two children (aged 9 and 11). The resort is a little way out of the main town, but the bicycles... More

Great review below. Let's talk more about Billy's Place. It is more like a 45-minute walk to Pangai. Don't do the walk at night without a flashlight unless the moon is very bright. It will be impossible to see the phone/power line which is the marker to turn into Billy's. Even if you've memorized the route back from Pangai (take... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
I wish to advise TripAdvisor that the Resort at Billy's Place will be renamed as Ha'apai Resort at Billy's Place (Ha'apai Resort). The renovation and extension of the resort has been completed and it will be open in November 2015 on a date yet to be set. Accommodation comes in two twin cabin, two double cabin and three ensuites cabin. Both the twin and double cabins share a well furnished common bath and toilet. More detail and photos will be available soon when the website for the resort is launched later this month. Similarly, all contact will be updated as soon as it is set up. We are awaiting the electricity to be connected to the main electricity supply in the island, which is at any time soon. I will update TripAdvisor of the date, time etc. of the opening. Kind regards, Inoke Fotu Huakau ... more   less
