Tanoa International Dateline Hotel begins accepting reservations

Tanoa International Dateline Hotel has begun accepting reservations and is expected to open in September.

Previously known as International Dateline Hotel and was solely owned by the Tongan government,  the seafront  hotel was taken over last year by the Fiji based Tanoa Hotel group for redevelopment, aiming to transform it into a four-star standard.

Tatafu Moeaki, Tonga’s Secretary for Finance said the renovation would be completed by the “end of August planning to commission early September”.

“In fact they had already made reservation from second half of September 2016 and a Tongan wedding is also confirmed for Dateline last week of September.  I am told by the Reddy the renovation is running smoothly”, Moeaki said.

This means the renovation work will finish earlier than anticipated as it was initially planned to be completed by January 2017.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
