Sea Change Eco Retreat



For travellers who enjoy truly unique destinations, Sea Change is an off the grid eco retreat/resort providing unique luxury beach front accommodation with the lightest possible footprint on Uoleva Island, Tonga (part of the Ha’apai Island group). We also operate Ha’apai Whale and Sail, the longest running whale watching/swimming encounter business in Ha’apai.  Sea Change is small but perfectly formed, an idyllic escape for a maximum of 12 guests at any one time – giving you an almost deserted island paradise to chill out and recharge your batteries.  These are the very waters where the Mutiny on the Bounty started when they put Captain William Bligh in the dinghy (1789). To view where we are in the world simply enter “Uoleva” into Google Maps or Google Earth. As you will see, our island can only be accessed by boat as there are no roads!
