My husband and I spent 5 nights at Fafa Island Resort and could not fault it. Our authentic fale was strategically placed to make the most of the beautiful views and easy access to the pristine beach while ensuring guest privacy. The outdoor shower was wonderful, plenty of hot water and a great experience to wash surrounded by nature. Our...

On the first occasion it was to celebrate our 25th wedding annivesary - although the weather was not great (cyclone season) the reception and care from everyone at the resort was outstanding. On the day of our anniversary we were kept unusually long waiting for breakfast - when we finally returned to our fale we found out why - the...

Beautiful island that my friend and I stayed at. Caught a boat from the main island there. Which was only 20 or so minutes away. Dinner was amazing, ate some Tongan dishes there. Their cultural night was amazing too, seeing lil tongan kids perform their traditional dances. Stayed in the fale with an outdoors bathroom. Very secluded and private. Enjoyed...

We spend an amazing week on the wonderful FaFa Island! It is soooo relaxing and management and staff cater to every detail and request. The fale is comfortable, love the garden bathroom. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating (hammock and deck chairs) to relax and enjoy your book or sleep. zzzz. Snokelling, kayaking and swimming from anywhere on the island...

Fafa Island is a magical escape from the modern world! If you're looking for lots of activities and entertainment, this is probably not the place for you But if you want peace and quiet, an idyllic setting, a warm friendly staff and beautiful secluded villas, book a fale on Fafa. You will be woken by the sound of birds and...

I went here with a friend on a day trip. Its a lovely island with a nice resort built in a sympathetic way. There is a beautiful little library, nice restaurant overlooking the beach and its a great place to forget everything and just relax. It is worth noting that its not particularly a place to go swimming unless you...

The island is a 45 min boat ride from the mainland, and about an additional 30 mins for the transfer from the airport. Everything went smoothly for us, even though it was an evening arrival. The fales (ie rooms) are well spaced out and each had its own entrance through the garden, with a clearing outside with loungers. From there...

We concur with the majority of the reviews; it's a great site for a "do nothing much" vacation. We had a full week here without leaving the island. I'll mention just a few aspects that might be helpful for older guests. We arrived in the dark off the evening Auckland 'plane. The wharf was pitch black and had uneven levels,...

We were there for the whale watching and stayed 3 nights. The staff is very helpful, the food is good, the room is nice. Maybe a long stay is too much because the island is quite small. The massage is at 80 TOP (1 hour) We highly recommend the half day main island tour that Fafa island can organize (the...
