Welcome to Serenity Beaches, a Tongan beach resort, located on a remote uninhabited island in the Ha'apai island group in The Kingdom of Tonga. Every fale is located, among the trees, on a white sandy beach, providing a truly peaceful, private, and relaxing beach experience. Uoleva was once listed by National Geographic as one of the top 10 island beach destinations in the world. The island is totally surround by sand and people love to take a day and walk the 6 mile (10 K) around the island to experience the total deserted island feel. Serenity is far from the distractions and pace of the 21st century and a perfect place to reconnect with nature, your loved ones, and yourself.
This year we have our own 30 foot boat and are doing guided trips out to see and swim with the whales. Tonga is one of the few places in the world that people are able to get in the water and have an intimate experience with the whales. Last year, among other experiences, we were able to be in the water and spend a half hour watching a mother nursing her calf. Being in the water with the whales is a heart opening and life changing experience and is possible from mid-July to mid-October — sometimes longer.
This island hideaway is a place where you can slip out of your shoes and into a bathing suit or sarong and leave cars and television behind. It is for those who would enjoy sitting under the stars, eating by candlelight, visiting ancient stone mounds, snorkeling in crystal clear water, kayaking to a distant shore, listening to locals play and sing traditional songs, swimming with whales or manta rays, having a drink on the beach at sunset, reading a book in a beach hammock, surfing on your own private break, receiving a relaxing massage, or walking for hours on the beach and seeing no one.
The buildings, made of Indonesia hardwood, have a pacific island beach feel. Water is collected as gentle rain falls from the sky. Electricity is collected from the sun. Most food is bought from local farmers and fisherman.
This is a place for families, explorers, honeymooners, and adventurers — those wishing to escape stress, relax, recharge and restore appreciation of life’s simple pleasures.
We now have a dedicated yoga/classroom space so we are now able to accommodated groups with a focus such as art, writing, meditation, dance, cooking, small church groups, yoga, family reunions and weddings.
