For the 2017 season, we stay at Vavau Villas. In 2018 we will introduce an option to stay at Mystic Sands
Vava'u Villas is owned and operated by Vanessa and Ian Jones. They've put a lot of heart into their welcoming B&B, and their dedication shows.
Guests stay at Vava'u Villas' brand-new glamping tents. The luxurious, roomy tents each feature an en-suite bathroom. There's also an onsite restaurant, where you can get a fantastic breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can request a regular room if there is availability, but the tents are more appealing and comfortable. Wi-Fi is available for a fee and there is hot water. A taxi into town will cost roughly $5 USD.
Guests can choose from twin share or single occupancy, with the price based on twin sharing. If you would like your own tent there is a single supplement cost of $1000 USD.

Please remember that Tonga is a developing country. From accommodations to food choices, things are simple here. Our guests are coming to swim up-close with humpback whales, so if your main objective is to relax on a sandy beach or stay in a luxurious resort, Tonga is not for you.
