The traffic can be noisy first thing in the morning.
You don't just stay at the Olini Lodge, Saia acts as your holiday planner and facilitator and organiser. He will drive you around, offer lifts, organise trips to the other islands, resorts and restaurants and does all of this in a way that reflects the love he has for Tonga.

It's common for people to own a few chickens and a rooster. Unless you are staying somewhere remote without neighbours there is a good chance of a rooster within earshot. We also stayed at fafa resort and they had noisey pukekos. It's an easy fix though, just bring some ear plugs.
We liked our host. They are knowledgeable and helpful and hospitable. They picked up fruit from market stalls and dropped us off and picked us up from town. We got a tour around the island which was fun. What we really appreciated was how well they looked after us. They didn't add anything to the price of things. The price they charge is either the same or less then you will find in town.

Everything! Saia and family could not have been more welcoming, helpful, caring and hospitable. We can't wait to come back!!

The casual and welcoming "family" environment. The great conversations with the manager and team. The fact that they were interested in me and what I was doing - and they were happy to drive me places!

This was the warmest welcome, we ever got while travelling! Olini and her parents are great hosts, caring for you like for a familiy member! Saia seems to be the secret king of tonga, arranging everything you like and showing you his island with immense pride! Thanks for the great stay, when back to tonga, there will surely be no other place to stay for us!

Had a great time & Saia was the perfect host. This was my second visit, this time with my parents & I will book again. Highly recommended!

The only slightly negative was that the location was not very central. Not really walking distance but i took the bike which was perfect and it is no problem to get a ride or a taxi.
The family who owned the place, Olini and ger parents took so well care about me. The father Saia drove me around and showed ne everything. I felt more like a family friend visiting then a tourist.

You might come to expect the same hospitality and high standards at other places in Tonga and be disappointed to some extent...
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!

- 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.

None really! I love every moment spend here at Olini Lodge.
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.

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.

What we didn't like about Olini Lodge was leaving! We arrived as strangers and felt we left as friends.
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.

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.

Noise from road could be loud at the weekend.
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.
