Where to stay in Nuku'alofa

The best accommodations in Nuku'alofa line the shorefront, offering views over the sea and easy access to the town's main beach. Most of these fall into the mid-range category and come in the form of large, modern hotels featuring swimming pools and onsite restaurants. As an alternative, you can stay in a colonial-style lodge, where you'll get a feel for the town's history and enjoy a comfortable, air-conditioned room. Look to stay near the royal palace to be right in the heart of the action.
