    The hospitality and the staff are so friendly. I feel safe to know their security is there all the time. Fiona and her staff went extra miles to make sure that our needs were met. The guest in there were like family. I will stay at Malau lodge every time I visit Tonga. It is central to everything in the town. I arrived there a 3 am, one of the staff was still waiting for us. What a service. Thank you so much for making out time in Tonga a memorable time. I will recommend Malau Lodge to anyone. The venue and the atmosphere were great. Thank you

    Warm , welcoming people . The situation is quiet and the rooms are roomy with aircon . The en-suite was great. The breakfast every morning was beautifully paid out with choices of cereal , tropical fruit , juice and eggs on toast. Tea and coffee is available all the time . It’s an easy walk to cafes and sea and port . It’s next door to Dateline hotel and you can buy reasonanbly priced meals there . My tour picked me up and dropped me off every day as well.

    Loved the breakfast! The staff were super helpful and fun to talk to. The WiFi was limited and needed to ask for a slip or buy more megabytes from them.

    Tonga är väldigt primitivt, så standarden är helt ok efter omständigheterna, rent och helt, ägg och flingor till gemensam frukost, internet funkar när det vill och långsamt, island time som man säger.
