“Perfect for Business”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The Lodge offers the best of Nuku'alofa for the business traveler. I've stayed there many times, most recently July 2012. The rooms are huge, the ac works, and you can walk to most of the government agencies you are likely to need to visit. Best of all, the staff will go out of their way to help you in any way they can (especially Lahti and Danny). If you are looking for a beach/resorty experience, this is not really your spot. If you need something highly functional there is no better hotel in Tonga.

The lodge is very tired and has been left to run down.

The worst factor is there is now a karaoke bar in the front corner of the atrium which all the rooms run off. After the first night of ungodly noise to after 1.00am I asked if this was normal. I was told that it was a one off 'birthday' however there were 'birthdays' for the next 2 nights as well. I saw as I was leaving that there is a month of karaoke contests through July so unless you can sleep through a lot of noise I would steer well clear.

For what it is it's significantly over priced. Having seen a couple of the other hotels during my stay I would definitely not go back to Loumaile. The feedback from other travellers and locals was that Little Italy and the Waterfront would definitely be first choice unfortunately they were both booked out at the time of my travel.

I spent one night at Loumalie with some friends, the rooms were excellent, clean, very spacious and the welcoming air conditioner all made this stay a very pleaseant one. Would highly recommend this to all travellers to the Kingdom.

Room Tip: Only rooms on the left hand side have a balcony.

The rooms were larger than expected, and the staff were helpful. We were well looked after during a power outage due to cyclone Jasmine.

Room Tip: The corner rooms are a bit larger than the others.

After a long, hot and tiresome wait for Immigration clearance at 'Fu'amotu airport, it was a tremendous relief to be picked up and shuttled to the Loumaile Lodge and to be welcomed by friendly staff & and a nice and cool air condition. The Lodge is very central and have easy access to other amenities. The room service was very good. I highly recommend the Loumaile Lodge to family members, friends and other visitors who wish to spend holidays in Tonga. I would also like to mention special thanks to Ms Kololia Maka, Operation Manager and Lahti, Director of Sales/Marketing for their recommendation & arrangement for the accomodation prior to our arrival to Tonga.

We stayed here the first and last nights of our Tonga holiday, before heading out to the islands. As such, it was a perfect base to walk around and explore the town, close to everything. Loumaile is on the main drag, but it was still nice and quiet and felt quite safe.
The room and bathroom was very spacious, nice and clean, aircon was silent enough, also free internet that worked fine. We got the same room both our nights, it was a quite dark, only half of the lightbulbs in the ceiling were working, the interior is dark, (even a dark wood imitation toilet :-) and window offered no view (dark alley) so drapes were kept closed all the time. Not that we really minded, we didn't spend much time in the room apart from sleeping, but it felt like I had no idea whether it was night or day outside.
Staff were friendly and helpful, but not very experienced. When we arrived and were heading out to have dinner, we asked them just to show our location on a map, which she got wrong. A bit quaint, eh? However, Nuku'alofa is so small, finding your way around isn't really an issue.

Beware though - they offer airport pick-ups for TOP40 PER PERSON, (i.e. as a couple we were charged TOP80 each way). A bit of a rip-off when you can easily find a taxi at the airport for TOP40 to town. Coming back the second time we just booked with the same taxi guy to take us back to the airport next day.
