The Tongan Beach Resort is located on the island of ‘Utungake and is one of the most popular beachfront island resorts and hotels in Vava’u. The resort’s location and facilities effectively combine the convenience of being connected to the mainland and town center, and the seclusion and privacy of a tropical island getaway.
The resort offers 12 rooms for accommodations: 6 beachfront double rooms, and 6 larger family rooms. All rooms have en suite hot and cold showers, coffee/tea making facilities, refrigerators, fans, hair dryers, and private decks overlooking the ocean. You can request for an upgrade to an airconditioned room, with a marginal daily fee.
Resort Amenities and Island Activities
Water activities like snorkelling, sailing, fishing, kitesurfing — and of course, whale watching — are just a couple of things you can do during your stay in the Tongan Beach Resort. If you prefer land activities, go for the 4-hour Vava’u Island tour which includes stops at a vanilla farm, the Ene’io Botanical Garden, local villages and market, etc. A popular option is to go on Kart Safaris, where you get to follow your tour guide through roads and rainforest tracks while driving two-seater off-road karts.
Rates and Contact Information
The resort’s bar and restaurant have themed buffet nights (Fiefia Night or Tongan Feast) on Wednesdays, with traditional dancing and live music entertainment from the local Tongan Beach Boys band. You can join in on the fun for $TOP 45 per pax. If you prefer to have a private dining experience, you also arrange to dine (breakfast/lunch/dinner) at the resort’s Tree House, which is quite popular among couples and honeymooners for romantic dinners, so make sure you place reservations.
