The Mounu Island Resort is located thirty minutes by boat from Neiafu harbour. Set on six and a half acres of private coral island fringed by white coral sands and anchored amidst a spectacular coral reef, the family-run Mounu Island Resort will match every expectation that you have ever had of your 'away from it all desert island'. The Resort is only connected to the outside world by radio, there are no phones, no Wi-Fi and no TV's!
The Resort only has five fales (fale is the tongan word for house - pronounced farlay), four standard and one Honeymoon (which is a little larger than the standard fales), situated on their own piece of private beach at the waters edge, providing breath taking views of the surrounding islands and reefs. The architecture of the fales is based on the original Tonga design, combining coconut pole structure with a shingle roof and large, high ceilings for maximum air flow. Each fale offers a choice of King or twin beds, toilet, shower , fans and private sundeck, and during the season you can sip your morning tea and watch the Humpback Whales at morning play just yards from the beach.
The resort's 'Moby Dick' restaurant and bar is situated on the water's edge at the western end of the island, the perfect location for a pre-dinner drink, to view a stunning tropical sunset and is no more than 5 minutes from any fale. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner, but your breakfast will be served on your bungalow's private sundeck. The Restaurant offers Pacific Rim Cuisine and provides a varied menu of the freshest tuna, marlin, lobster and other locally caught seafood, complimented with fresh locally grown vegetables and fruit, and tropical desserts. Bread is baked daily so is almost oven fresh! They can also provide picnic hampers if you wish to picnic on a deserted beach, of which there are many to choose from!
For the active you can try game fishing, snorkelling, canoeing and in the season, from July to November, whale watching and swimming with the Humpbacks. At night, you might lay in bed and even hear them splashing their pectoral fins as they breach.
For the not-so active, you can enjoy the lagoon and the white sand beach, take a picnic to a deserted island, take a book from the well stocked library or just sip a cold cocktail and enjoy the view.
A stay at the Mounu Island Resort will be a truly unique and special experience and one that will be very exclusive.

There are regular regional international flight connections to and from Tonga, all international flights operate into Nuku'alofa on the main southern island of Tongatapu the nationals capitol, currently there are no international flights into the second Island grouping of Vava'u.
There is currently no Tongan national airline, so air connections to/from the Island are provided by other nations carriers. Virgin Australia operate regular service from Auckland and Sydney, with connections to many other Australian cities, but they do not currently operate any flights out side the southwest pacific region.
Fiji Airways, formerly Air Pacific operate five flights a week from/to Fiji, twice weekly service between Tonga and Nadi which provide connections to their Nadi to Los Angeles, and Nadi to Hong Kong services, plus there are three flights a week between Tonga and Suva.
The main airline providing same carrier service to the USA and Europe is Air New Zealand with direct service to/from Auckland provided five days a week (some seasonal variations apply) and there is a week non-stop flight to and from Los Angeles, currently departing Tonga on Tuesday nights going via Samoa, arriving in LA on Tuesday, the return flight leaves LA on a Tuesday and again going via Samoa arrives in Tonga on Thursday morning. Currently, this flight also provides the only air service between Samoa and Tonga.
At this time there is only one airline providing domestic flights within the Tonga islands, however the history of the domesitc flight operations in Tonga has been a little patchy over the years.....so we can up date you with the current situation when you call.
