Imagine sitting on a sun lounger watching the sun set over the hills across the bay as the water laps at your feet, cold beer in hand, after a day out snorkelling, swimming with whales or fishing (or maybe just lounging around in the sun). The Tongan Beach Resort is just what you imagine a Pacific Island holiday destination should... More

We were booked at this resort for four days in June - extended to six days due to weather being so bad the plane could not land for our flight out. Certainly the bad weather did not help our experience here - the heaviest rainfall Tonga has experienced in June for 36 years, and gale force winds for some of... More

I had 2 nights at the Tongan and enjoyed it's spacious rooms and fine bedlinen. Continental breakfast was generous serving of fresh fruit, toast and coffee. The lunch menu was good value (dinner expensive), the fish salad came with generous succulent, fresh fish on crispy salad (top$19), accompanied by glass of NZ wine (top$12), switched to beer ($7) and passed...

We stayed here for 10 days to enjoy a low key resort holiday and see a bit of Vava’u. We were glad we came! From the airport pickup by Doug to his drop-off at the end, everything was so easy and enjoyable. The staff were always lovely and helpful. The TBR is a 15 minute car (or boat) ride out... More

I almost didn't want to write this review as I would like to keep it secret :-). I have just got back from our third trip to the Tongan Beach Resort, and we are already dreaming of our next time. From the moment you get there you can't help but slip into relaxation mode. Shane (co-owner along with his lovely... More

I stayed at Tongan Beach Resort in August 2015 and it was a truly wonderful experience. I visited with two friends and we really felt as though we were in paradise. We had not originally planned to stay at the resort, but having visited pretty much daily (it is open to people who are not staying), we decided to spend... More

All our flights and all other locations were refunded EXCEPT AUD$864 was billed to my VISA card that I had used to hold the room. I spoke to Moa from Tongan who told... More

I stayed at Tongan Beach Resort in August 2015. It was a magical experience. The atmosphere is tranquil and the surrounding scenery is truly idyllic. I spent my days in Tonga, relaxing on the beach or by the pool, making use of snorkelling or canoeing equipment, browsing through the extensive library of holiday reads or biking around the nearby islands....

I booked the Tongan Beach Resort after checking the pictures of their website : thetongan.com . The beach was looking awsome but when i arrived at the hotel i realized i have been scammed by photoshopped pictures which are very far from reality. The sandy beach in the pictures is in fact composed of rough sand and coral gravels :... More

As the owner of this resort, we are extremely concerned about the accusations of this review. It appears that everything about the resort was wrong in the eyes of this guest. I have taken the liberty of speaking to other guests who were staying at the resort at the time and unanimous comment was that they felt sorry for the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Resort is nestled on the beachfront of the island of U'tungake. This boutique styled island resort offers the best of both worlds - the isolation of an island, with the convenience of being linked to the mainland. All 12 individually themed rooms have views of the golden sand beach and torquoise waters of the harbor. Only metres from the waters edge, all rooms are equipped with ceiling fans, coffee/tea making facilities and en-suite bathrooms. Six rooms are vailable with air conditioning. A beachside bar and restaurant provide an international level of food and beverage service. The overwater dining "fale" and swimming pool are recent additions to the resort in 2012. ... more   less
