My partner and I stayed at Tanu Beach Fales for 2 nights, our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer. The fale's were more than comfortable, service was excellent and the food was delicious! I can't wait to go back and this time I will stay longer :)

This place definitely grew on me. At first glance it seems a bit worn out but after a couple of days that didn't bother me at all. The communal bathrooms are kept clean, the fale we were in was overlooking the beach. The meals were huge and delicious and included traditional Samoan food (palusami and ūlu - breadfruit, pawpaw, fa'i,... More

We had a lovely stay at Tanu Beach Fales. The perfect place to unwind & relax. We were a little concerned about the weather before we arrived due to the 'open' configuration of the fales, but they are extremely sturdy, with great condition tin roofs and walls (made from cocunut tree I think) that can be folded down plus mosquito...

Our family of 2 adults and 2 children stayed here for 2 nights. As other reviewers have said, it's definitely not for princesses but it suited us perfectly and we enjoyed our stay here. The beach is lovely though the erosion is a little worrying. There was plenty of food and the communal dining area was lovely. It was really... More

Wow. From the moment our large school group arrived on Savai'i, tanu beach were there with us, and they never let us feel like we were alone. I was introduced to all the major players, and they kept with me, ensuring that needs were met, and any request were reasonably worked through so that it worked for both parties. Tanu... More

Described as basic and it was with communal facilities. In fales on a most beautiful beach. Waters warm and clear. The family was just delightful and made us feel very welcome. Plenty of food especially for hungry teenagers. Dinner and breakfast was supplied. Would happily stay again and what we did appreciate was an honest description of what was available... More

We (65 teenagers, parents and teachers) stayed here for four nights. Basic fales and cold water showers. We had a great time, the hospitality was warm and the food..... Well, certainly the quantity was there. Probably had enough grilled chicken and breadfruit to last me a long while. Swimming in the clear warm water and being able to watch the... More

We came to Tanu for one night and stayed 2 weeks! It's very simple accommodation on a divine beach. You can even swim on low tide, which is rare in Samoa. The family who runs the businesses is lovely and very accomodating, and yes they live there and accross the road. This makes the welcoming family vibe. You get to... More

Our second time in this little piece of samoan paradise . Things don't change much in Tanu thank goodness . This place is not a flashy resort by any means , its a family run kind of beach fale set up .Always relaxing and friendly . I would rate it even higher but for a couple of simple improvements that...
