Great staff, great location. I can't thank you enough for the hospitality. A special thank you goes to Lepani(bartender)Angaetau and to Maata(cashier) Breakfast was perfect, coffee, oats, eggs! Beers in the Arvo. Staff were too happy too help.

We are frequent visitors to Tonga and have always stayed at the small boutique hotels along Vuna Rd. Whilst these small hotels have sufficed in the past, there is now a new kid on the block. Tanoa Tonga is a classy establishment. Given that it a brand new, you wouldn't expect any maintenance problems and there are none, but the...

Malo e lelei Carol There are a number of smaller boutique properties in Tonga that are excellent accommodation options but we certainly offer a different level of comfort that Tonga has been lacking for some time. We look forward to improving in what ever way we can and setting the benchmark in Tonga to make it an even more attractive...

I stayed at the Tanoa for a week in February 2017. The official opening of the renovated Tanoa - by King Tupou VI - was held during my stay and that was a real Tongan experience. The pool was the highlight for me!

I stayed in Tonga International Dateline Hotel for a total of 9 nights and found every aspect of the hotel facilities and service superb. Facilities were stylish and sophisticated and the staff was friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were somewhat large for a room of its size. In regards to value, Tanoa is a little pricey, however,...

Our room had a great view looking out to some...

I stayed at the International Dateline Hotel a number of times from 2004. The Hotel went steadily downhill over this period finally closing in about 2014. The Reddy family took on the massive task of restoring the hotel and have achieved a remarkable transformation. I stayed there in February over the period of the official opening. The staff had an...
