“Phenominal experience in every aspect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

We stayed at Mystic Sands for 4 nights and everything was above and beyond what we had expected. Not only was the service by the housekeeper friendly, personable, and welcoming, we also met the owner of the resort who came by our room to ensure very thig was going smoothly.

There was amazing snorkeling right off the beach with a great variety of fish and snorkeling supplies provided. We went kayaking on the ocean around the small islands and even into town as the kayaks were nice without any leaks and a variety to choose from for 3 people.

We attended the weekly community buffet which was outstanding. There was so much food each person could have had 4 plates if they could eat that much with probably 12 different dishes to choose from.

The rooms are aet up so no Mosquitos are a problem and so clean and well taken care of no bugs were a problem. House keeping came daily to take care of trash and internet was also provided. They give you information on restaurants and other fun activities close by which was also very useful.

Overall, staying at mystic sands made our te here easy and enjoyable. Definitely would recommend it to everyone to stay here!

Thank you for coming to visit us at Mystic Sands, it was great meeting you and especially in the 'low' season where customers and friends are a bit scarce. Hope to meet you again some day somewhere...

Had a wonderful stay at Mystic Sands. Fantastic staff, great location, airport pick-up/drop-off, resort’s own taxi driver always took us where we needed to go, snorkelling equipment & kayaks are provided.
We were in the upstairs 'Family Unit', which had great views of the water from the balcony. There’s a kitchenette so you can prepare your own food but at night, for an addition fee, the resort’s caretaker/cook/second-mom, Mosi, can make you a feast that you can enjoy outside on the jetty. Mosi really went above & beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay. She’s a GEM!
I absolutely loved it here & highly recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: 'Family Unit' was comfy. We went in summer & the unit only had ceiling fans, so it did g...

The Mystic Sands resort is a small taste of paradise! You are literally living on the beach with the most tranquil seas and beautiful view right in front of you. It is truly a place to lean back and relax.

If you are traveling as a couple or with a family I can highly recommend the Mystic Sands. You set your own pace in this place and the wonderful hosts Maka and Mosi are always on hand to help you with everything from shopping to transportation. In addition it is pristinely clean.

This was my first time in Vava'u. A great place to holiday! I have nothing but great things to say about this place. From Day one Mosi was helpful, friendly and available. The owners Kjell & Adriana, were available via email before our trip at all times and quick to respond and help 'honestly' with other holiday enquiries too. He even came over to welcome us and say goodbye. The buffet dinner was delicious, the grounds were always clean, the place was safe and inviting. The continental breakfast was divine. Free wifi was an absolute bonus! I wish we had stayed longer!!!!! I will definatley come back here with my whole family next time! Thank you Mosi for your hospitality and a genuine heart, you give beauty to a place that already holds much beauty. Kjell & Adriana the way you run Mystic Sands and care for it, is a credit to your family.

Mystic Sands is a fantastic retreat in Tonga. Mosi and Maka have created a little paradise. I traveled to Tonga to find the birthplace of my father and Mosi took my name and some of my family names and located some distant relatives who took me to the island where my father was born. It was an incredible day and would not have been possible without the fantastic help of Mosi. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our 4 nights at the resort. The view from the bungalow was incredible and we spent most of our time just enjoying the scenery. The owner Kel, is an active participant in ensuring guest comfort and we saw him nearly every day. Great and resort and great people. Can't say enough good things about this lovely resort.

As a group of friends we rented a beach house next to the resort. The house was great with all necessary kitchen equipment, clean and soft beds, and nice bathrooms. The couple working on the resort (Mossa and Maka) were really nice and took great care of us. We had a great stay and will never forget the beautiful view from the veranda.
