1. Serenity Beaches Resort
One of the most popular resorts for yoga retreats in Tonga, Serenity Beaches Resort provides a relaxing environment to relax and rejuvenate. The resort is nestled in a quiet corner of Uolevu Island in the Ha’apai Group, an island group famous for having more uninhabited islands than inhabited ones. While the resort has frequent yoga retreats, casual guests can also indulge in a yoga class in the large octagonal yoga pavilion. Massages are also available from the owner who is a qualified therapist and yoga instructor. Check out more resorts in Ha’apai here.
2. Sea Change Eco Retreat
An eco-resort also on the island of Uolevu in Ha’apai, Sea Change Eco Retreat provides a stunning place to practice yoga in their dedicated yoga pavilion. The pavilion is nestled in the shade of coconut trees to allow you to escape the heat but immerse in nature. The resort offers informal yoga classes in the pavilion, as well as unique “Yoga & Whales” sessions. You’ll enjoy a 45-minute pre-whale swim yoga class to prepare yourself for the life-changing experience. After your swim, you’ll have a 45-minute class to stretch out your body and mind after the excitement of the day.

3. Matafonua Lodge
Also in the Ha’apai Group, Matafonua Lodge is located at the northern tip of Foa Island on the edge of the beautiful Houmale’eia Beach.

SUP fitness and SUP yoga classes are the resort’s speciality providing a new challenge for the keen yogi.
4. Sandy Beach Resort
Matafonua Lodge’s sister resort, Sandy Beach Resort, offers slightly more modern fales (beach huts) for couples. They offer the same SUP fitness and SUP yoga classes as Matafonua Lodge, but in an arguably more secluded and serene beach location to do yoga from.
