Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful location with breaching humpback whales visible from shore, lovely well maintained grounds, excellent staff, delicious food, and very comfortable beds. I highly recommend it. I stayed in cottage/fale #1 with two other traveling companions who were also there to swim with humpback whales. The cottage had a nice bathroom and unobstructed views of a green lawn, sandy beach, and the pacific ocean. The cottages do not have air-conditioning but it was not necessary considering the screened windows that could be left open. Most of my time while on the grounds of the retreat, and not swimming with the whales, was spent in the open-air restaurant area which doubled as a retreat hangout with it's own unobstructed views of the beach, ocean, and whales. Several new friends were made at the retreat.
While whale swimming, which I did alot of, the staff of Blue Water Retreat were safety minded number one, for both human participants and the whales, were very skilled on and in the water, very knowledgable of marine biology, and lots of fun in the process. They made this life long dream of mine to swim with whales an exceptional experience and not intrusive for the whales. The whales decided if they wanted to approach us and many did!! I miss the whales, I miss the retreat, and I still think of it every day.

I've travelled all across the world and this is arguably the best accomodation I've ever stayed at. The location is right on the beach, the rooms are gorgeous and comfortable, and Dan's cooking is the best food in Tonga! A big thanks to Dan, Kate, and Lovely for such an incredible stay. If you visit 'Eua, Blue Water is the only place you should consider staying.

Just a short Ferry ride (2hrs Malau was awesome) from Tongatapu, but might as well be another planet. Seriously remote Jurassic feel. Tili & Meleane were amazing young Hosts who happily cared for our every request. We are currently booking to go back soon. Mike & Kim Wolfgramm

The staff are very friendly, polite and always willing to help with a smile. The accomodation is right on the beach was quiet clean and safe. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. I would highly recommend this place and would visit again. The price and transport to eua is very affordable...it is only 2 hours by boat and there are 2 boats and a plane daily.... there is no need to travel to vavau and haapai...just hop over to eua...
