My family of four spent four nights at White Sands Beach Resort in July and we had a wonderful, wonderful experience.

The owner and staff were extremely attentive to our needs and interests. The food that we enjoyed was excellent, and they were very receptive and helpful in making arrangements for us to dine at other resorts. My wife and I enjoyed whatever was offered to us, and the staff worked hard to make certain that our children enjoyed their meals, too.

The White Sands Beach Resort is a very nice place to relax. For us, it was a nice balance of being low key, while also having the opportunities to explore the resort of Tongatopu for more excitement. The "low key" aspects were great for our kids, as they had the run of the place and we felt extremely comfortable with having them explore White Sands Resort and they easily made friends with the staff.

My wife and I enjoyed the sound of the waves and the wind blowing around our cabin at night - so relaxing!

The White Sands Resort is a very pleasant, relaxed place on which to center your holiday in Tongatapu! ENJOY!

White Sands has the most amazing stretch of pristine white sand.
We stayed for 3 nights and were the only guests.
There is no restaurant, however, Priscilla (staff member and family member) will prepare an exceptional meal for TOP25 each. Lunch can also be provided for TOP15 each.We were delighted with our meals.
If you do want to self cater you are able to have access to the kitchen.
Gloria (owner ) and Priscilla are great company and very imformative on Tonga and the Tongan culture.
Units are large and well equipped. the hot water and water pressure was the best out of 6 places we stayed in Tonga.
Before swimming check with Gloria or Priscilla as to where to swim.
White Sands has the luxury of a swimmimg pool. We spent many hours in the pool.

We stayed in White Sands for 1,5 days because our flight was delayed and we missed connection, and I am really glad that we had a chanse to discover this hotel.
Rooms are big and clean, with fan, toaster and fridge, where you can find some food like bread, milk, jam and fresh papaya, it is included, and in the morning Priscilla came with fresh and yammy pancakes!
Terrotory is green and immaculate, beach is white, and we didn't see anybody on it despite we spent there almost the whole day. Also we were lucky and we whatched whales there.
The owner of hotel Gloria is very nice and generous person. She was so kind to bring us to Blow Holes, it is really wonderful place.
So it was my first visit to Tonga, and it was unforgettable. So White Sands is really nice place to stay, i recommend it.

We recently visited White Sands Beach Resort and would highly recommend this resort to stay at when travelling to Tonga.

It is situated on the most beautiful beach and very close to one of Tonga’s main attractions the Blow Holes.

The staff and owners are lovely and very friendly, they made us feel very welcome throughout our stay. They were incredibly helpful sorting out activities for us to do and gave us lifts to and from town which really helped to save on taxi fares.

Pricilla the resort Manager will cook meals for you at night if you request them which were beautiful we had fresh fish and kumara chips and a chicken curry. We ate here twice then decided to be adventurous and make our own meals in the big kitchen provided for cooking. The kitchen is very ideal if you decide to bring your own food over with you to cook otherwise you can do what we did and buy it from the markets in town and cook your own. They have everything in the kitchen you will need for cooking including spices and sauces.

The grounds are immaculate and very well kept. There is a big pool and our rooms were very spacious and serviced daily.

All in all a great stay and we will be returning to White Sands in the near future 

This resort is about relaxing in quiet immaculately presented grounds on a fantastic beach. There is nobar or food available though it ddoes have a kitchen to cook in. The other resorts are close by and will pick you up and drop you off. White sands is fantastic for charging the batteries in well monitored grounds. Those in charge Gloria Ian and Priscilla pride themselves on peoples privacy but are very friendly.
The 6 units are very tidy with toilet and shower excellent.
If you have a car it's a bonus tho the hosts will drop you where you want to go.
The pics I've put in say it all.
