We spent 7 days at Heilala in a superior fale and loved every minute. The staff are friendly and helpful, special thanks to Tina who met us at the airport with big smile and beautiful lei, she also is a waitress and an impressive dancer. The fale was comfortable and clean, the free fruit and toast breakfasts delicious and we...

We stayed at Heilala recently for 5 nights as a nice break. Unfortunately our flight into Tonga was delayed about 5 hours so we arrived quite late at the night but we and a few other fellow travelers were greeted by Heilala staff at the airport with lovely leis. It is a decent drive from the airport to the resort...

This was our first island holiday and we loved it. Heilala is very clean, very friendly and in a stunning location. We ate at the little restaurant most nights and loved the food which was beautifully presented, light and flavoursome. A couple of times we cooked in the small, basic communal kitchen using food we had brought with us plus...

We spent five days at Heilala and had a great relaxing time there. We travelled as a family - two couples and one toddler (15 months old) - and while the place is not exactly kids friendly (as their website says: "the only suitable area for kids to be kids (where they can let themselves go ;-) is on the...

We spent a week at the Heilala Holiday Lodge and absolutely loved it. It is a fantastic getaway for couples, an idyllic spot surrounded by lovely gardens. Sven and Karolina are incredible hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were clean and tidy, and the superior fale...

We stayed one week at Heilala and were just impressed with the friendliness of our hosts! Our superior fale was very cosy, romantic and clean! We loved relaxing in the hammock and just chilling at the stunning, very peaceful beach! I can't wait to get back ;)

We stayed one month (the whole June) here and really liked it. The owners care for everything and the place is really tidy. There is a shared shower that is cleaned twice every day, the same with the shared toilets. The community kitchen is tidy as well and has enough cooking equipment. The next village is just a 5 minute...

We were looking for somewhere to relax and do nothing for a mid-winter break, and spent six days at Heilala Lodge. The setting is spectacular, with the fales set amongst tropical plants, and the beach just a few steps from the fales. The fales are simple but perfect for what you need for this kind of trip - the bathroom...

On a recent holiday to Tonga we chanced upon Heilala on Trip Advisor and booked just from the number of great reviews. We were definitely not disappointed and stayed at both the beginning and end of our holiday. The location, accommodation, beach and area are great - about 25 mins out of the main town. The beach is great for...

This time last year we stated at Heilala and I wrote my first ever trip advisor review- praising the service,setting and atmosphere at this lodge.
