Ha'apai's newest accommodation option, and Tonga’s first luxury eco retreat, Sea Change can be found on Uoleva Island.
Sea Change Eco Retreat is a boutique resort focused on wellness, adventure, rest & relaxation - located on one of the most beautiful and "off the grid" islands in the South Pacific. We also operate Ha'apai Whale and Sail, which is the longest running whale watching/swimming encounter business in Ha'apai. We are located on the best beach in Tonga, with calm seas that are perfect for swimming. Stay in our exclusive, beach front luxury wooden fales or our elevated “glamping” tents. Each comes with a private deck with sea views, garden area and private bathroom which features hot showers. Lie in your private hammock or retreat into the fale and relax on your high quality bed and watch the coconut trees swaying around you with the waves lapping gently on the sandy shore just metres from where you lie. Listen for the distinctive sound of a humpback whale’s spout, or see if you can locate one of our resident sea turtles. Explore the multitude of reefs in the bay just off the resort, or take a walk along the magnificent white palm fringed sandy beach. Enjoy our custom designed exercise, meditation & yoga pavilion which is nestled in a tranquil coconut forest – and book in for a relaxation massage.
Enjoy tasty, tantalizing fresh food with vegetables and herbs picked daily from our own hydroponic/organic garden. Enjoy one of our quality wines, or try some of our tropical cocktails and refresh yourself with ice cold drinks from our fully stocked bar. Watch the sunset behind the Kingdom’s highest volcano, Kao, from the bar/restaurant area or from the privacy of your fale or on one of our comfy deck chairs in front of the dining and bar area. The waters in front of Sea Change are the very place where the Mutiny on the Bounty began!
Sea Change has been designed as a perfect resort location for focused retreats including yoga, wellness, meditation, fitness, choirs/singing and corporate strategy sessions. We are also a perfect base for scuba divers, kite surfers, kayakers, or those who just want to do as little as possible while enjoying one of the most beautiful remote islands in the world. We offer a full range of excursions and activities including swimming with whales, scuba diving, reef snorkeling, village tours, quiz nights, private island picnics…and on.
