If I ever go to Samoa again I will pick up my rental car, drive straight to the ferry and then drive directly to Savai'i Lagoon Resort and stay for a week! We stayed at two other resorts and this was the best by far. It has the best location on either of the two main islands, friendly staff, and... More

Talofa Matt and thank you for your both comprehensive and glowing review. We are very proud of our resort and in particular our great staff who always make our guests' stay a welcoming one. Regarding the Wifi connection, the signal does reach some rooms but the strongest signal is in the restaurant which we usually recommend to our guests. We... More

I went to Savaii Lagoon again with my husband and two sons and extended family to celebrate my Dad’s 70th birthday. We had a wonderful time, swimming and snorkelling and just lazing around. Our five year old son who had been getting swimming lessons at home, surprised us by being able to snorkel from the first day we were there.... More

Dear Nicolatraveller, Savaii Lagoon is the ideal place for a family holiday and so it is nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay. You will have noticed many changes since your last visit and we realised that you had another child since your previous visit. Well done to ensure that your children have swimming abilities as this certainly encouraged... More

This place is amazing! Traveling as a single Mum with my teenage son & 12 year old cousin I can't even tell you how great it has been to have the peace of mind knowing they're safe in the bungalow watching a movie whilst I'm snorkeling the amazing reef on our doorstep. The staff have been so helpful and accommodating,... More

We are returning guests to Savaii Lagoon Resort and we didn't think it could get any better, but it did! The sunsets were as beautiful as ever, we enjoyed delicious meals (and many a cocktail) overlooking the water and the stunning beach. Our fale was always clean and decorated beautifully and all of the staff were so personable and helpful.... More

We had our honeymoon at Savaii Lagoon resort, it was such a nice relaxed place to stay with excellent food, friendly staff and for me the most important thing was that the water was treated, free, clean and safe to drink. In all other areas of Samoa and most other pacific islands you have to buy bottled water! The Aussie... More

We spent 6 days at Savaii Lagoon and wished it could have been longer. The staff with Dave & Tania could not have been friendlier at this low key and relaxing hotel on Savaii. The location is fantastic on a beautiful sandy beach with a shallow lagoon lapping at your feet. The food is high quality but service is slow,... More

This is my 3rd time at the resort. Normally after a couple of visits to the same location / resort a feeling of sameness creeps into your thinking. Not so with S.L.R. The new managers, Dave and Tania have taken up the challenge of maintaining the wonderful, friendly standards of their predecessors and then some. Couldn't ask for more obliging... More
