My family and i have stayed here 4 times now due to the beautiful location and the beach that is so calm and perfect for young children to splash around. We caught some beautiful sunrises and were able to swim comfortably at 5am in the morning thanks to the warm temperatures. Loved the social eating and friendly atmosphere of the...

Had a drunk local guy waking me up by knocking at my open fale 3 in the morning, asking me for a cigarette. After repeatedly telling him I had none, and having to raise my voice to alert my neighbours, he left. This frightened me so much, I did not sleep. I could hear at least 3 guys walking around...

We stayed 4 nights in September in beach front fales with friends. When we arrived they put us in a fale one back from the beach as they were full although we'd booked beach front. It wasn't too bad and when the crowd left they were happy to let us move beach side which we highly recommend. The beach is...

This was the 3rd time we stayed at Tanu Baech Fales, and this time we stayed for 10 days as previously a week was not enough. There have been some changes. The beach is now protected by sand bags. But it has been done very well, they are sand coloured and blend in perfectly. There are also new plantings to...

We only stayed one night as part of an event but I'd go back in a flash. We stayed in an open fale just back from the beach. The fales were comfortable with mosquito nets and woven shutters. The shared breakfast and dinner provided enough variety for most dietary requirements. The family put on a fiafia night for our group...

So happy that I stayed here. I took a fale at the very end... away from entrance (based on what another reviewer recommended). I woke and had my coffee ... and simply went down the steps... right into the sea. I slept looking out at the ocean.. and woke to the same tranquil scene. The fire dance night at Tanu...

Just had a beautiful weekend at Tanu Beach Fales. We fell into the water three steps from our fale as soon as we arrived then sat on the water's edge watching the sun set after a hearty meal in the communal dining area. The family made us welcome, entertained us with a great fiafia night and made sure we had...

Decent food and the fales are lovely, but they're not quite on the beach as the pictures indicate - there is actually hardly any beach at all. Most of the fales are up above sandbags so if you can, request fales on the right looking at the lagoon as they're actually overlooking sand. Beautiful location though. Bathrooms need a tidy.
