The unhurried and un-spoilt islands of Tonga give you the perfect setting to unwind. What’s more, amongst deserted beaches and stunning sunsets, a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the modern world, you’ll also find the perfect backdrop to rekindle the romance in your life.
Studding private islands and remote beaches around Tonga’s three main island groups of Tongatapu, Vava’u and Ha’apai, the Kingdom’s boutique resorts and eco lodges represent a sensual and stunning environment to relax and rejuvenate.
And, because most of Tonga’s tourist accommodation is small, intimate and locally owned, it’s easy for visitors to experience Tonga’s famous friendliness first-hand. Indeed, whatever accommodation type you choose, you’ll enjoy real Tongan hospitality from warm and genuine people who pride themselves on taking care of your every need.
Activities to fill languid daylight hours include kayaking to untouched atolls or a pampering Polynesian massage. Then as night falls, rustic sand-between-your-toes beach bars are the perfect entrée to romantic candle-lit dining.
Expect to be exceptionally well fed on your journey too. From Tongan favourites like ’ota ‘ika (raw fish marinated in lemon and coconut cream) to lu pulu (corned beef and coconut milk wrapped in taro leaves), food and feasting are integral to Tongan culture. Delicious meat and seafood, from spit roasted suckling pig to steamed fish complemented by the freshest of local vegetables including yam, taro, sweet potatoes and cassava form the basis of seriously special meals. There couldn’t be a better way to get a true taste of Tongan culture, or to set the mood.
So make sure on any trip here, alongside your sense of adventure, you also pack a sense of romance. After all, for so many, seeing Tonga will quite simply mean love at first sight.
