“Bliss”
Reviewed 16 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary by staying at The Beach House. It was like heaven on earth. So peaceful, so serene, you just can't imagine this beauty even exists until you experience it yourself! The house itself is immaculately designed, the layout is great and the deck - omg, you never want to leave it! We spotted so many fish from the deck and were even lucky enough to see 3 GINORMOUS manta rays cruising around, and lo and behold, managed to snorkel with these giant beauties not long after! Karyn, Boris and their 3 extremely polite boys were so helpful and kind to us. We were waited on hand and foot and I can't even describe how amazing the food was. We were well-spoiled! What a relaxing break, so nice to come back recharged to take on the busy world we live in back in Auckland, New Zealand. We really hope to be back in a few years to share this slice of paradise with our 3 girls.

Wow, what a slice of paradise this place is!

Our group of 7 have done many tripes together and hired chateaus, villas, beach houses... you name it, but we all agreed this was the most amazing trip yet!! The combination of astoundingly beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation with uninterrupted views, private beach, wonderful hosts and food that seemed to always be exactly what we wanted was just perfect.

Boris and his team looked after us so well, even building us a beach bonfire on our final night when we came up with that crazy idea.

The whale swim we did was a dream come true. Boris, Tom and Emma were so respectful of the whales while at the same time making sure we had an amazing experience - this is not always the case in Tonga as we experienced with other operators.

This place isn’t a luxury resort, but it’s rustic chic in an unbeatable setting and that’s a huge part of its charm. You are far from civilisation so you have to marvel at the luxuries that Boris and Karyn have managed to incorporate into this gorgeous place, hands down one of the most mind blowing places I’ve stayed.

Go. Go now.

“This is Paradise!!!”
Reviewed 15 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

When Tripadvisor had the possibility to add more points to a place then just 5...this one would receive a great 10+.
We slept in the Coral Cottage for 6 nights, amazing place. The view on the sunset is I think the best.
The outside shower so beautiful, cool to watch turtles swim by when you are taking a shower.
Snorkeling when you step out of bed and then relax in the hammockseats on your own terrace.
The crew is amazing, they make you feel like you are part of the family! So friendly and always prepared to help you out with just about anything you need!
We love that the place is self sustained really interresting to see how everything works! Everything works like a charm...
The whale swimming trips are a once in a lifetime and Boris ans Tom made it one to never forget..everything runned smoothly.
We would definitly come here again and stay longer...in paradise on earth.
Thanks again to everybody we had the time of our life.

“GREAT Whale Swimming”
Reviewed 13 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We could not book their hotel, but we could book the whale swimming with them for 1 day! So this review will be about whale swimming!

In Aug, whale swimming is really popular in Vava'u.
We were a little late to organise our booking and could not book our preferred date with one operator.

So we have contacted Karyn as well and she was really kind and booked us for our preferred date. Thank you very much!

We were lucky that only 4 people in the boat. There is a rule that every boat, only 4 people can enter the water at one time. Most of boats have 8 people and split in 2 groups, which is nice too but with them, we were 4! So whenever ready, it was always our turn!

Tom and Boris were very kind and we found that they are putting really great effort for customers with really relaxed atmosphere. Although the day we were on, it was a little difficult to find any whale (of course it is nature!), in the end, we had a AMAZING time.... We met VERY friendly calf and mother whale. They never go away from our boat, even after we entered water, the calf got so close to us!!!! The calf splash with his or her back fin and keep coming to us! We swam with mother and calf for quite long time since they seemed to be really relaxed with us... we saw sometimes the calf close his/her eye next to the mother..... What a great moment we had!!!

And one more great thing... The lunch!!!
I normally got sick on the small boat so I never enjoyed any food on the boat. But with their lunch!!!! OMG! It was so tasty and I ate them all!!!! Also I really liked the coconut Tom opened on the boat and home made cookies after the lunch!!

I imagine the food in your lodge must be really good!!!

Thank you very much for all!!!!!
I really hope we can get back to you!
