If you're looking for a place to total relax, destress, swim and enjoy nature - Sandy Beach is the place! My friend and I flew to Haapai to celebrate my friends' birthday and we ended up at Sandy Beach. Many thanks to the owner Boris Stavenow for his generosity and hospitality. Staff are very friendly too and we just love...

Sandy Beach resort is nothing short of magical. I recently spent two weeks in Ha'apai with a group of local actors to share a theatre production with the local communities there. A year ago the islands of Ha'apai suffered great devastation from tropical cyclone Ian and are still struggling to rebuild and recover the basics for daily life, business, health...

If you ever dream of visiting a remote pacific island then Ha'apai is it ! I was there for almost a week with wonderful Dorset hosts Susie and Martyn. The bures are in a neat row right along a pristine white sand beach. Rooms super comfortable with everything you need. As is often the case in the pacific the deck...

I have lived in Tonga for 19 years and Sandy Beach Resort is one of the most Beautiful spots in Tonga to enjoy nature, the ocean and experience true Tongan hospitality. Palm trees and modern island style huts only meters away from the crystal clear water & long white sandy beaches, sounds like your typical dream of paradise in the...

I was in Tonga for work with a colleague. We have travelled all over the world these past years for our job and on weekends we try to get away from the capital city we are in to experience the other side of the country. In Ha'apai we found a very relaxed place, conservative in nature and deeply religious. The...

We stayed in December 2014 for 7 nights. On arrival in Ha'apai we were greeted at the airport by the owner, Jurgen, and British hosts, Susie and Martyn and that welcome set the tone for the remainder of our trip. It felt like staying with long lost friends who couldn't do enough to look after us but at the same...

I only spent one night here but gosh it's lovely. The fales are right on the beach, with a huge comfy bed, lovely bathroom facilities and a view to die for. The rooms are spotlessly clean and cared for, with everything you need to make a comfortable stay. Ha'apai is just so stunning, and this spot must be one of...

We have been to Sandy Beach Resort in August 2014 during our Honeymoon.

Sandy Beach Resort has the best accommodation on Foa Island when you're looking for a relaxed beach holiday and not so much of a 'Ha'apai' experience. They offer hot showers in your room, a 'luxury' other accommodations on the island can't offer. You have electricity 24/7. Nice strip of beach and clean water. I recommend this hotel for groups. We...

We stayed early in season with only a few other guests, an eclectic mix of nationalities. Jurgen,Boris and the staff could not do enough for us. Given the logistics and cost of importing nearly everything the price of food is reasonable. I have paid more for a beer in Australia than at Sandy Beach. Whales breaching, volcano on horizon, snorkeling...
