Stay in a Villa in the Islands of Tonga
Stay in one of the guest rooms of a colonial-style villa or rent out a private piece of paradise at one of the villas in Tonga. That’s right, the term “villa” is used rather loosely in Tonga in terms of accommodation, but you can find generally both types of villas. Large villas of multiple guest rooms, lounges and other shared facilities can be found in the capital, Nuku’alofa, whereas villa-style holiday homes are available (albeit sparsely) in the islands of Vava’u. Check out some of your options with this list of villas in Tonga.
1. Villa Apartments
There are two properties as part of the Villa Apartments in Nuku’alofa. Villa Westside offers a large colonial villa that have been renovated into separate modern apartments, while the Villa Eastside is a smaller villa building with one studio apartment. Make the most of the superb waterfront locations, where some of the apartments feature balconies/patios with Pacific Ocean views. Each aparment is fully set up for self-catering where your hosts even offer a drinks and pantry service if desired. Whether you’re a family seeking home-away-from-home amenities or a couple on a honeymoon looking for a little luxury, the Villa Apartments has an apartment to suit.

5. Oceansong House
A private holiday villa on the shores of Vava’u, Oceansong House is the perfect retreat for couples. Watch the sunset from your louvred windows and an expansive balcony with a plunge pool. The villa is located on the same block of land as your helpful hosts but far enough away to feel like you’re in a world of your own. Guests are free to use the WiFi, make use of the gardens and use the kayaks to explore your harbour backyard. The accommodation is about a 10-minute walk from Neiafu town centre where you’ll have access to the town tours, shops and restaurants. Otherwise, you can dine at the villa, which has its own kitchen and dining furniture.
