Fua’amotu Transit Lodge


Malo e Lelei and Greetings from the Fua’amotu Transit Lodge (FTL)

 My name is Vailahi Makoni and I manage the FTL. FTL is now in full operation as a budget accommodation and is under new management. It is a bed and breakfast accommodation located right in the heart of Fua’amotu Village (Tonga), 5min to the Fua’amotu International Airport and 3 minutes away from the Domestic airport. It is designed to cater for travelers coming from International ports on transit in Tonga before travelling to the outer islands such as Vava’u, Ha’apai, Eua, and the Niua’s, and vice versa. Yes, no more long drives to Nuku’alofa!

Some might find FTL very convenient, especially for those coming back to Tonga or the outer islands for church conferences, family or school reunions, weddings, funerals, holiday, fishing, whale watching, or just looking to relax and enjoy the quiet life in the village, FTL would be the place for you….not to mention one of Tonga’s best and cleanest beaches is just 3 minutes down the road. Even if you need a place for a few hours to freshen up, have a power nap, or even have a quick swim at the beach before your flight, I’m sure FTL will accommodate you and your needs.


  • Full kitchen (gas stove and oven, pots and pans, cutlery)
  • Microwave
  • Two fridge freezers
  • Coffee and tea making facilities
  • Four toilets & four showers

The property is fully fenced, so it is safe and secure.  We can also provide information for reasonable priced rentals for you to use while staying at FTL. Rates includes a light breakfast.
