Sandy Beach Resort is a boutique resort in the Ha'apai group of islands with only 12 bungalows within beautiful tropical gardens situated directly on the best beach in Tonga. Excellent swimming at all tides and great coral reefs right in front of your doorstep.
Our twelve beachfront bungalows(Fale) are very comfortable and all boast a fantastic view of the Pacific Ocean - just 30 metres away. Large bedroom with kingsize bed (or twin) and sitting area, spacious bathroom with walk-in shower and excellent water pressure. All bungalows have a small fridge with drinking water, tea and coffee facilities, and free wlan. Deck chairs are on your veranda for relaxation and full enjoyment of the sea and beach views.
Enjoy the sunset on our terrace with a coconut cocktail, followed by a delicious three-course candlelight dinner.
Tonga is well known for its abundance of seafood. Lobster and fish are caught daily and are delivered to the resort straight from the boat by local fisherman. If you don’t eat fish, we also offer top-quality meat from New Zealand and can also prepare vegetarian dishes on request.
“Sustainability” is a concept we don’t take lightly. The resort is built to be as environmentally friendly as possible and good relationships with our local villagers are a top priority. We allow them to share the benefits of good tourism by providing them with jobs and supporting their children’s education. As much as possible, we buy local produce and nothing goes to waste.
When we left Germany in December 1987 to run a restaurant in the capital of Tonga, the dream of a completely new life became a reality. Four years later we discovered the island of Foa, an untouched garden of paradise. It took us two years to build Sandy Beach Resort on what was a coconut plantation and we were the first palangi to live on Foa Island, with its population of around 1,000.
