Wasn’t sure what to expect and boy have we been blown out of the water. Blue Banana’s Maui Fale to which Chris and Shane kindly upgraded us, is magical. We loved it so much we cancelled travelling to another island and stayed an extra week being a total of two weeks. The views are just stunning and waking up to the sound of waves every morning crashing off the reef is just hypnotic. The accommodation, although traditional has everything you need, including en-suite, fridge, microwave, hot plate, communal barbecue, fan, THE most gorgeous “lookout” being the best balcony we have ever come across, wonderful hosts and the one and only Rod who looked after us so well. The beauty of our accommodation made us catch our breath when we first arrived and it did not wear off. The beach is deserted most of the time and the reef hosts a myriad of colourful fish and provides hours of great snorkelling and swimming. We recommend hiring a car as soon as possible, very reasonable and pretty essential. Blue Banana have some good referrals. A tour of the island with Tui is worthwhile and can be done in a day. Arrange to buy some food on your way from the airport to last you a day Until you get yourself organised. There is a local shop at end of road which has basics but if you arrive on a Sunday, everything is closed so best to organise in advance. You will not regret staying in Blue Banana

We had a fantastic stay at Blue Banana. It is run by a wonderful couple, who shared their stories of Tonga. The beach is the best in Tonga, and a great place to interact with locals. There is a local store in the village, and the you can get a bus to Nuku’alofa. Blue Banana organised a day tour of the island for us. We also enjoyed watching the sunset with a drink and good company from the other guests. Relaxing, beautiful, friendly and affordable. Book it now!

My girlfriend and I spent a week at the Blue Banana Beach House. Our hosts, Chris and Shane, were very helpful and accommodating the entire time. We stayed in the "Maui" which was extremely comfortable and offered a direct view to the ocean. The beach was quiet and beautiful. I would love to stay at Blue Banana the next time I'm in Tonga.

Shane and Chris are the perfect hosts and we just loved their beautiful property. With just four fales, the place was quiet and serene even when fully booked. Shane took us shopping and showed us the best eats in town so the self catering plan was a success but we also knew where to go when we wanted to eat out. His knowledge of local history is a huge plus - make sure you get him to take you through the museum. Every sight and activity recommended by the Blue Banana team was a great success. This is a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the quiet life. Loved hanging with the other guests and strolling through local villages. We’d recommend getting your own local SIM card as wifi speeds and capacities in Tonga are limited. Phone data is fast and cheap.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days in the tree house. We loved our little privacy and having our own deck to watch the beautiful sunsets. Chris was amazing and always made sure we were comfortable! I was heavily pregnant at the time and so we didn't do much besides relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery (the perfect place for relaxing)! We look forward to going back some day!
