Vava'u Villa

Traveller (67)
Room & Suite (21)
Dining (13)
Vava'u Villa is conveniently located 5 minutes from Neiafu. Our location is adjacent to the new operators residence and other business "Taste of Tonga." Vava'u Villa is not located near any other residential houses, this means Ian and Vanessa can control the annoying wildlife that make their presence known when you stay in Neiafu or near a village. You will not be woken up by village dogs fighting pigs at 3 am, you won't be woken by 15 village roosters crowing from 4 am and you won't be woken up by church bells at 5 am. All there is for you to do is relax and have a great time. Come and take part in our free to guest (normal cost $30) Coconut Factory and Vanilla Curing Centre and see Zero Waste in action and see the many things we do with coconuts. Should you need it we offer an airport pick up and delivery for a fee each way. For the energetic we have some bikes available on a first come, first serve basis. Vava'u Villa has a licensed bar and restaurant (closed in our low season), we have an organic vegetable garden and our own livestock. Our restaurant specializes in the best fresh island produce. One of our specialties is vanilla cured bacon made from our own vanilla and pork. For great food, and a great holiday please stay at Vava'u Villa. Check out our new Glamping Tents available for booking during the Whale Season.

Vanessa and her staff were very kind, giving this place the very personalized feel of an Inn. I felt like a Moroccan princess, staying in the large tent which sported its own porch with a lounging couch and an adjacent, private bathroom separated by a wall from the bedroom. I

We planned to stay here for a few days of whale swimming, before leaving for a week sailing around the islands. We ended coming back after the sailing, unexpectedly, when our flights to Haa'pai were cancelled. Luckily Vava'u Villa had room for us for our last three days. The

We totally enjoyed our time at the Vava’u Villa. The food was excellent and Vanessa was outstanding at taking care of our requests. We stayed in the large white tents, which were roomy and comfortable. We look forward to returning to this quaint hotel.

We were only able to pay at the hotel, also as the price was in US dollars the amount was calculated on that day's exchange rate so it may fluctuate slightly from a quoted amount. Have a great time if you're going whale swimming I can recommend dolphin Pacific diving.

Hi so sorry for not replying sooner the alert went to my junk box. Yes you can prepay. I have just tried to send the email you can contact us direct on however this site will not allow me to put an email address in. If you can understand what I am saying send it to bookings vavavvilla. Thanks Vanessa
