“everything works and what a great standard”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

the only place to stay in Tonga is Villa Apartments, they are close to town, furnished beautifully, and spacious.... with friendly owners Kim& Judy.. The views, the fittings, everything works and is above expectations.

Room Tip: with 6 apartments to book any one is good

First of all let me explain along Vuna Road Kim and Judy have 2 seperate accomodations,they have a B&B Villa Lodge also known as Villa McKenzie and the other side of town Villa Appartments. Villa Appartments are recently opened. We stayed at Villa Appartments. The appartments are very impressive. They are all huge. We stayed in apartment 2 with a sea view, it had a huge front area comprising of the lounge, well equipped kitchen, and dining table and chairs.The bathroom is also enormous, with a shower, sink, toilet, the hot water is good supply and the shower is really powerfull. The huge bedroom has an enormous bed and wardrobe, the bed is so comfortable and this is very important for me as I am not the best sleeper, I slept really well, there is a fan and air conditioning in the room, the bed linen is really good quality, Egyptian cotton. All the furniture has been chosen with a lot of thought and consideration and is extremely tasteful. I also saw apartment 1 which is also 1 bedroom but has the advantage of a large terrace with table and chairs both 1 and 2 are ground floor. I also saw room 3 upstairs which is a 2 bedroom apartment - absolutely stunning, the décor is really high spec!!! This apartment also has the advantage of an enormous wrap around balcony with floor to ceiling sliding doors. Kim and Judy were really obliging and any requests were met, I needed an extra 'desk' to work in our apartment and not only did they supply a desk I also had a chair and desk lamp to go with it. Little Italy and Cottage Breeze are minuites walk away great food and the walk into town is about 10 mins, for other cafes, bars. Airport transport can be arranged on request it was totally reliable and I also used the laundry service - excellent!!! I would highly recommend staying at Villa Appartments either for business or pleasure. Every evening a guard would sit outside from 10pm - 6pm not that I have ever experienced any problems with security, but female lone travellers may like this extra feeling of security. It is my second visit to Tongatapu, Nuku'lofa. I do have photos which I will post.

Room Tip: Room 3 really is worth the extra money although there where 2 of us I really wish I had stayed in Ro...

Having watched the new Villa Apartments being created from what was a run down waterfront property we chose to stay there for eight days before permanently departing Tonga. What a fantastic choice - fully equipped kitchens, wonderful views from huge terraces, very quiet but still close enough to town to walk, and restaurants also within walking distance. Very spacious, great bed linen, very tastefully and comfortably set up - definitely the pick of accommodation in Nuku'alofa. Great hosts in Judy and Kim who are tremendously welcoming and helpful

I have lost count how many times I have stayed at the Villa while on business. It is a truly comfortable colonial era house that is always clean and well appointed for business as well as holiday guests. The owners, Judy & Kim are wonderful hosts, friendly and make you feel at home which I enjoyed during my 5 day stay which is what I really like.
In recent times they have refurbished their large living room where it is possible to share good conversation with other interesting fellow guests and enjoy the view looking out to sea. While still retaining the charm of a Victorian built house, the addition of high speed wi-fi has made the Villa just that much better for doing business. I can recommend the Villa for a stay whether on holiday or business.

It is always a pleasure to stay here, you could not ask for better hosts than Kim & Judy. They have a wealth of knowledge and are ready to advise on anything you need to know on your visit to this lovely Pacific Island. They have comfortable clean and well service rooms. It is a good location close to Town complete with internet. Early evening settle down on the spacious veranda looking out to sea whilst enjoying a beer as the sun goes down. There is no doubt where I will be staying next time I visit !

I've had a number of business trips to Tonga this year and I always stay with Kim and Judy at the Villa. They're amazing hosts and they're always happy to help, nothing is too much trouble. If you've got things to do, you can hunker down in your own spacious room or, if you've got some free time you can sit and relax in the lounge or out front on the veranda with a cold beer/wine while getting to know the other guests. Its a true home away from home experience.

I got the chance to look through the new Villa Apartments on my last trip and all I can say is WOW! All of the apartments are huge and the fit out is top draw. I can't wait to try out one of the new apartments on my next trip.

This is a brand new venture by Kim and Judy, the owners of The Villa. They are brand new apartments overlooking the water and very close to The Cottage Restaurant and Little Italy for great pizzas. Rooms are large, bathrooms are huge, they are well equipped - ideal for business travellers - reliable internet and easy place to work. Judy and Kim will always be welcoming and are a font of knowledge about what to do. I expect to be back here soon. Well done K & J!
