Overall Tonga is said to have one of the best climates in the south Pacific. The average annual daytime temperature is a comfortable 75ºF. In the summer, from December to April, the temperatures are warmer and the winter months from May to November are cooler and dryer. Anytime of the year is a perfect time to visit Matafonua Lodge.
You can wear your bathing suits or bikini at Matafonua and the nearby beach. However, we kindly ask that when in villages and town you wear shorts or skirts below the knee and cover your arms.
The Electricity is 240 volts and 50 HZ, which is the same as Australia and New Zealand. Sockets are three pronged, the upper two prongs being angled and flat the same as New Zealand and Australia. All Fale’s have power 24 hours a day.
Matafonua Lodge provides rain water for drinking in your fales each day. It is clean and probably the sweetest water you will come across.
Wifi is available from the main house / Restaurant for a small fee.
Sunday is, by law, a day of rest. There are no plane flights and all shops are closed, the resort is allowed to operate as usual.
