10 Best Villas in Tonga

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 holiday 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 and Tongatapu. Check out some of your options with this list of villas in Tonga.

Note that Tonga is an ever-evolving country with some services that accommodations provide changing with little notice. While we try to keep our accommodation listings up-to-date, know that some services may have changed. If you have an update, feel free to reach out.

1. Fale Tonga Guesthouse (Tongatapu)

Holiday villas with a difference, Fale Tonga Guesthouse is a collection of two traditionally inspired fales set on a peaceful plantation on Tongatapu. The design is the most impressive feature of these self-contained two-bedroom houses, each with exposed beams and high ceilings yet tastefully furnished with some contemporary touches. Enjoy the ease of a fully equipped kitchen complete with a dishwasher and washing machine, a spacious design-driven bathroom, and each bedroom with a double bed. There’s plenty of room to roam in your fully fenced-off garden with no direct neighbours, yet you’re only a four-minute drive from Nuku’alofa town centre.
