From the moment we arrived until we left we had the most fabulous time. The staff could not have done more for us, the food was delicious and the island and facilities absolutely fantastic. You can't help but relax and we wish we had longer than the three days we were there.

I was having a short break in Tonga (3 nights) and have stayed at the Seaview Lodge. My room, 302, was in the annex and was very well appointed, had a good selection of mini-bar items (although, this isn't something I use), an in-room safe, very comfortable bed, tasteful decor, wi-fi, and a TV with 20 channels (including two for sport). The shower room was clean and damp free, which is quite an achievement in the South Pacific, with fresh towels daily. The shower (whether you wanted hot, warm or cold), was very powerful and quite invigorating - again, somewhat of a rare find in these parts.
Breakfast is served daily in the restaurant, which is also open every night, except Saturday and it serves the best food on the Island.
My Hosts, Franz and Gudrun made me feel very welcome, as did the local staff servicing the rooms and waiting in the restaurant. Airport transfers are conveniently arranged and are charged to you bill, with no nasty surcharge.
My three days at the Seaview were relaxing and it could be described as a home away from home.
I look forward to going back again.

Mandala Resort was everything my husband and I were looking for and more. This is a very high end spa resort without the high end price. The gourmet meals were beautifully prepared and presented from fresh, healthy ingredients. Lisa's homemade breads and breakfast smoothies were a treat every day. The treehouse room was wonderful! So beautiful and comfortable. The proprietors, Ben and Lisa, are excellent hosts and the mindful design of the resort reflects their love and respect for the environment and the natural beauty of the island. They took care of every detail: transportation to and from the airport, boat taxis to town, arranging activities, making phone calls, and seeing to our every need or desire. One morning Lisa, a certified yoga instructor, led a fabulous yoga class on the beach, complete with music, incense and ocean breezes! Each dinner in the evening was inspired and creative.
I must admit we were wondering if the bill at the end of our three days would be as high as we thought it could be, given the fabulous service, meals and drinks. To our delight, it was very reasonable and less than we anticipated.
I am already looking forward to a return visit someday.
