Resort Description

Reef Resort Vava'u is a beautifully remote, yet accessible, hotel in the Kingdom of Tonga. 

A selection of bungalows and one honeymoon villa are dotted along the leafy coastline, separated by grass lawns and tropical vegetation. The shallow lagoon in front of each villa is magically azure, with a sprinkling of green islands in the distance. 

The resort is renowned for its unique contemporary European Polynesian gourmet cuisine, served in a semi-open restaurant featuring wooden beams and floor-to-ceiling glass doors. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and three-course dinner using organic, locally-grown produce.

This is a fantastic destination for year-round diving in an untouched underwater world. Besides diving, activities include sea kayaking, stand-up paddling, sailing, cultural tours and swimming with whales (July- Nov).

Description

Dive Tonga is a PADI 5* Dive Center located in the heart of the Vava'u island group, Tonga.

This dive center is the first ever to offer year-round access to some of the best diving in the world. Until now, the underwater treasures of Vava'u have been limited to a couple of months of the year, but not anymore!

This location offers 40+ meters visibility and gives access to stunning reef systems, drop offs, caves and swim-throughs. Mantas, eagle rays, sunfish and sharks are commonly sighted throughout the year!

If wrecks are your thing, explore the Clan MacWilliam, a 140 meter copra steamer which sank in 1927 in Neiafu Harbour, now sitting upright in less than 40 meters of water.

Each day includes 2 dives and complimentary dive gear. You will be picked up by the boat from Mystic Sands and whisked off to the day's dive site. 

Light refreshments are provided during the surface interval and speciality dives can be arranged on request.
