Serenity Beaches Resort
Uoleva Island, Tonga
This simple, low-key island hideaway is situated in a beautiful location on a white-sand beach amid swaying palm trees. The fales (thatched bungalows) offer privacy and with only five of them, the setting is exclusive and cozy. Three fales have a private porch overlooking the Pacific and bathroom with garden shower, while the two other fales share a bathroom and garden shower. Each features a queen-sized bed. Since Uoleva is an isolated island with no electricity, solar lamps, candles, and battery lamps light up the fales. (There is a generator for refrigeration and charging cameras.) At mealtimes, we gather at a central dining area that offers stunning views out to sea. The snorkeling at Serenity is some of the best in Tonga.
