Mandala Resort Tonga
Mandala is a beautiful setting for your wedding reception, whether it's for 8 or 80 of your closest family and friends! While it's not yet legal to marry in Tonga without fulfilling a minimum residency requirement, officiators and ministers can be arranged and Mandala is the ideal place to hold your ceremony and reception. We can handle the organization of all logistics including charter flights, accommodation for your entire party at various Vava'u resorts, catering, entertainment, ceremony, special extras and your honeymoon stay. Let our event planners help you create the perfect backdrop for your most special memories!
Mandala is the perfect romantic setting for your relaxing or adventure honeymoon. The Tree House is private and ideal for romance atop the trees. Have dinner on the beach or on your private veranda and if you'd like enjoy a first evening's complimentary bottle of wine.
SPECIAL - 20% discount on your honeymoon bungalow May, June and November!
"Mandala Resort on Fetoko Island will be forever in our hearts... My now husband proposed to me on the western side of the island, overlooking the stunning clear waters ... we knew that we couldn't have our wedding reception anywhere else... Mandala was amazing - the food, restaurant, lighting, music, ambience, staff, vibe - all absolutely perfect..."
- Liza B., Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
We enjoy sharing our little spot in the South Pacific, off-the-beaten-path. With a maximum capacity of 18 guests, we offer an exclusive holiday, surrounded by much to explore. While we pay close attention to comfort and service, we prefer to do it with a bit of relaxed flair. Just as we hand-crafted the resort's buildings with the natural curves of the island in mind, we also like to approach life's special moments with heart and spirit. After all, we are all made of stardust.
With both the beach restaurant and Yoga and entertainment deck, we have plenty of space for your program curriculum. We love to help create sacred spaces and offer an intimate venue that's sure to help foster intuitive connection to your topic.
Private Parties and Events
Our core staff has a wealth of experience with professional party planning here in Vava'u and our facilities are ideal for throwing a fabulous show for your party-goers here at the beach resort. With its large common area floor there is plenty of room for dancing and performances as well as catering and seating for large groups. The beach and campfire area is perfect for your party, whether it's a full moon dance or a traditional Tongan Feast.
Equipped with the right gear, Ben is an experienced DJ, and has a range of professional lighting and presentation options. We can help make your event spectacular. The restaurant and full bar are able to design catering to suit for your special day. Mandala is a fabulous party spot, whether it's a full moon dance, a birthday, anniversary, or wedding party, or a 'just for the fun of it' occasion.
The restaurant hosts an ideal dining and lounge experience with an open floor plan and kitchen. Chef's Choice set menu dining and fresh Artisan bread baked daily. Offering continental breakfast with fresh fruit smoothies and cooked options, 2-course lunches and 3-course dinner dining. Serving international fare: Pacific Fresh, California Fresh, Asian, Indian, and Italian cuisine. Featuring healthy and satiating vegetarian meals, with the option of a variety of local seafood and imported meats. Vegetables supplied by the local organic produce market. Vegetables and freshwater fish to be harvested from our organic Aquaponics system, as it develops.
For those staying with us, full and half board meal plans are available. You might ask why we don't offer refrigerators and coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms... here at Mandala Resort we operate on solar power and use of such electricity is not a sustainable option, but rest assured, we offer morning coffee/tea brought to your room and all-day coffee and tea service is available in our beach side restaurant. We will cater for most all of your needs, just ask!
For those staying at other resorts or on cruising or charter yachts, we take 24-hour advance reservations for lunch and dinner dining and would love to see you here!
The beach bar stocks a selection of NZ and Australian wines, local and international beers, and a range of premium liquor and liqueurs. Enjoy a sunset cocktail in this ambient setting. After dinner, enjoy a relaxing beach bonfire and a starry sky, with just the right tunes and the perfect night-cap.
Mandala has 6 deluxe fales. Fale (fa-lay) means house in Tongan.
Each fale has its own private veranda with spectacular views of the surrounding islands and is equipped with a private en-suite bathroom, hot water shower, comfortable memory foam mattresses, French doors, and bay window day-beds, mosquito nets and fans.
The buildings have been hand-crafted with considerable thought for the curving lines of the island, forming a symbiotic ambiance with the environment. Living earth roofs compliment the island's natural beauty, unique for Vava'u beach resort accommodation.
The resort operates on solar power, rain water catchment, and low water flow composting toilets.
