Malo e lelei! If you're the kind of traveler who likes to experience local culture and explore off the beaten track than this is your place to stay! Saia and his daughter 'Olini (namesake of the lodge) will make you feel right at home during your stay and all facilities are at a good standard (don't expect a 5-star hotel, though). Although I had booked a single room, Saia gave me a double room without extra charge as it wasn't booked at the time. Make sure you try the food at some of the non-Western places in town and you will return home a different person with many new friends!
You might come to expect the same hospitality and high standards at other places in Tonga and be disappointed to some extent...
- Excellent staff, very friendly, great knowledge about the town & country - Everything was easily arranged including tours, boat trips and car rental for very good price ("We need a car today" "Ok, it's xx TOP and it will be here in 10 minutes") - Building is well kept, nice and clean - Location within walking distance to town or 5 TOP taxi ride. - Wifi available to check emails etc.
This is staying with a local family at its best. Saia and his daughter Olini do everything possible to make sure you enjoy your stay with them. The room was basic and we shared facilities but this was never a problem as there are so few of you staying. The breakfast was ample and the wifi free. Their inside knowledge meant we saw many things we wouldn't have done elsewhere and we made a life long friend.
Outstanding customer service by very warm, flexible and friendly owners. Facilities are excellent. It is overall a very clean and welcoming environment with very artistic displays of art and floral arrangement. Everything from water bottles, wi-fi service to free healthy breakfast are provided and it sure is value for money. The location is excellent as it has easy access to Nuku'alofa and it is right next to Vaiola Hospital. Room is quiet and always provides a very comfortable bed and a good night's sleep. The balcony provides a very aesthetic and calming view of the Fanga'uta lagoon especially at night. Overall, I am a very haapy and pleased customer and would, with no hesitation, highly recommend this accomodation to prospective customers looking for accomodation in Tonga. Malo Saia and Olini for your fantastic hospitality.
None really! I love every moment spend here at Olini Lodge.
sia was a great host loved talking to him he is very good with his guest and shows them around and takes them to exciting places with out any charge .
You feel home away from home! The best choice I made in my trip. Extremely friendly people and a wonderful island. I wish I could have staid longer. The lodge and the owner are lovely and try to make your stay so beautiful that you don't want to leave. I definitely would have liked to stay and I will surely come back! By the way: only place that offers free Internet. Thank you for making my stay a wonderful experience.
The host and his daughter Olini will bent over to make you feel welcome and at home. Tea/coffee, snacks and good advice on what to do in Tongatapu is always available. They share Tongan culture with open hearts. This small b&b was planned for a stopover before an international flight but it was certainly one of our highlights in Tonga.
Olini and her father Saia made us feel so welcome. Saia is a fantastic ambassador for Tonga. The guesthouse is on the main road into town and we enjoyed getting on and off the local buses into town and back for less than $1. Having access to the laundry and kitchen at any time was great. Eating breakfast at the same huge square table with the biggest lazy susan ever, was a good way to meet and interact with guests from around the globe. Olini Lodge is owned and managed by Tongans. I give it my highest recommendation.
What we didn't like about Olini Lodge was leaving! We arrived as strangers and felt we left as friends.
Welcoming atmosphere, comfy rooms, good breakfast. Sia happy to take us or drop us anywhere and charged very reasonable prices. Tour was great.
Our host Saia met us at the airport and gave us a very warm welcome on our first visit to Tonga. He is a great ambassador for Tonga. We enjoyed chatting to the other guests over a lovely breakfast.
Saia and Olini are the perfect hosts. Saia's was attentive, helpful, generous with his time, energy and advice. We loved his sense of humour and happy spirit. He greeted and treated us like old friends. Thank you for making our first trip to Tonga so wonderful.
Noise from road could be loud at the weekend.
my husband and I stayed there for 1 night for transit to Auckland. The room we booked has bathroom and is very spacious. We asked the owner, Saia to help look for a half tour for us and finally he brought us to blow holes with reasonable price.
Owner is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and breakfast is superb!
The owner really wants you to enjoy his country and learn about his culture ... way more than making a profit. Enjoy his humor and his stories. Let him take you on a tour of the island instead of paying a well advertised tour company. You will get a more interesting tour and will pay far less for it.
I don't have any complaints.
The owner's very friendly and helpfull
The place needs a good clean from top to bottom! Overpriced
Very friendly and welcoming staff
Couldn't stay long enough
Saia is a fantastic host ... attentive, considerate, and entertaining. The facilities are clean, well kept. Saia is rightly proud of his guest house.
Location a bit noisy on the main road into town. Rooms need reading lamps.
What an amazing place! And Siai is the best Host! Absolutely recommend it. And.. will be back as soon as possible! Siai took us on a great tour of the island... seen things that are definitely off the beaten track!! AWESOME.
Olini's host Siaia is devoted to being the best possible host ever at this lodge. He loves meeting new people, young or old, and seems to gain great pleasure out of introducing each one of his guests to all the best places in Tongatapu. Anything a guest wishes to see or experience, Saia can find a way to accommodate.
I agree with Peter. The worst part is that the holiday in Tongatapu was all too short, and we had to return back home to winter and work.
Siosaia is a great host and well connected in Tonga. There is no stress at all staying at Olini!
Vegan friendly breakfast, amazing hospitality, great intro to Tonga
Leaving Olinis to return home to Australia
Saia is a wizard who captivates you and wins your heart within first minute of conversation. Not only that he picks you up from the airport and makes you feel like home, he drives you around the island to attend parties and beyond all he is an excellent guide. He brings you to some places nobody was before. The daughter Olini is very kind and helpful. I had an excellent time. I am sure I will come back. Thank you!
The mosquitoes are a real overkill especially if you are a "palanga". Comfort can be improved by installing ultrasound devices instead of using chemical spray.
The place is great and the staff are super friendly! Saia is awesome and really he and his family really makes the place.
That we had to leave!
Olini Lodge is a true home from home. Our host Sia was so welcoming, making sure everything was just right for our trip to this beautiful island. Definitely recommend Olini Lodge if you wish to learn about the real Tonga.
Can't think of anything!
