This resort is amazing! Really good value for money went away with 6 others .. Hosts Gloria and Ian were awesome, so accommodating, made sure we were all OK. Rooms were clean spacious and we arrived and had bread, butter and water in our fridges! .. Every morning you would get pancakes and fresh fruit. The beach was literally 10...

We recently enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing holiday at 'White Sands,' with the nicest and attentive 'staff' ever! They were more like friends by the end of the week! It is a very quiet location and the rooms are large and comfortable. There is a large fan above the bed and a pedestal fan, which we didn't need much at...

Hi Jenni My apologies for not responding earlier and with the help of my new marketing person I have made it one of my New Years Resolutions for 2016 to know the importance of responding to the trip advisor reviews especially from someone that has spent so much thought and caring as you have.

A glorious white beach awaits you in this isolated piece of paradise. The first night my husband and I star gazed for around half an hour and saw 10 shooting stars. What a romantic way fit Tonga to welcome us back. The room is great by Tongan standards. The furniture doesn't match but the bed was far more comfortable then...

We have just spent a wonderful week at White Sands Beach Resort. We travelled as a family with our daughter, and our friends who also have two children and found this resort to be an ideal place for children.

As everybody mentioned, the owners and caretakers (wonderful ladies!) of this establishment are very friendly and kind. White Sands is located on the west side of the Tongatapu island and can be pretty secluded. It is good for a getaway for one who wished to just relax. The next village is about a ½ hour walk (if you do not...

Clean fales with good showers, a lovely pool, a beautiful private white sand beach right in front of the resort and the excellent service of the staff made our stay perfect.

This place is simple but gorgeous! The staff are helpful, welcoming and we would highly recommend White Sands! It is a bit more remote, however this is one of the attractions.

“Which ever room you chose to stay in, you will have the beach very close to your door. This resort is not near any type of entertainment or amenities. You will need a ride or a rental car to get anywhere. The room was very clean. The shower could have been a little updated and with a different shower curtain, but the water pressure and temperature were great.”
  • Great piece of property!
  • We stayed in the room closest to the beach.
