“What a way to experience the Tongan Spirit”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I stayed at the Loumaile Lodge with a business group of 16 people recently. Even though the hotel is in the middle of an extensive renovation my stay was superb! In keeping with the true Tongan heart, the staff and management were super attentive, friendly - they really looked after us. The rooms were truly spacious and comfortable. I LOVE the shower with the massage sprays that go across your whole back.
There's many establishments in Australia and around the world that could learn from Seini (our main contact at the hotel) in how to give excellent customer service.

We stayed for four nights and the lovely staff always had a ready smile and would go out of their way to accommodate us. The rooms were air conditioned, spacious and clean, and made up beautifully each day. The breakfast room was air conditioned and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay again - it's only the facade that let it down at this stage.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the park side.

I honour this hotel for the way it managed our business group of 16! They gave and gave in true Tongan style. Special royal visits, celebrations and fun! They really care. Highly recommend! I plan to return to this magical place. Seini our main staff went above vas beyond constantly!

I just spent 2 nights here on my visit to Tonga, but when the taxi arrived I told him he must have made a mistake! A major refurbishment is ongoing, and the exterior is half covered with a wall of corrugated iron sheeting. The interior is like a morgue, dark corridors, carpets rolled up against walls, all the shops & facilities are closed except the restaurant. I booked through Agoda but it seems that they were not informed about the refurb either.
On the plus side, the room and bathroom were clean & bed comfortable, but beware on a Sunday as church bells will wake you - there are two large churches adjacent to the hotel. Perhaps the redeeming feature was the staff, incredibly friendly and helpful, and I could imagine that under normal circumstances this could be a great hotel, because of location, staff and rooms.

We stayed here for four nights on our way to the more remote islands of Tonga. We were a bit concerned as the building is undergoing renovations. Our worries were unfounded as the always helpful people at the front desk got us checked and moved into our room. Room was newly renovated; clean, comfortable, air conditioned. Tea kettle with coffee and tea provided. Internet available at reasonable price. Close to Friends Cafe and Cafe Express and shopping. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family
