We spent a week at the Heilala Holiday Lodge and absolutely loved it. It is a fantastic getaway for couples, an idyllic spot surrounded by lovely gardens. Sven and Karolina are incredible hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities were clean and tidy, and the superior fale was awesome, especially having our own fridge. I would suggest taking a wetsuit if you plan on spending time in the water it averaged about 22-23 degrees, I was pleased I brought mine. There is awesome snorkeling with many species of fish just out in front of the Heilala Lodge and we even got to see a whale breaching from the beach. The Vakaloa or Vakanoa resort just down the road had a neat buffet and show. Bikes and most other facilities were free to use which was a great bonus. We can't wait to go back.
