Va-i-Moana was the perfect mix of traditional rustic Samoan Fale accommodation, with some added bonus comforts of a resort. We stayed in enclosed fales close to the water which were big and comfortable. The lodge has a full restaurant and bar with breakfast and dinner included and all meals we had were delicious - especially the fresh fish! If you... More

I stayed for 3 nights but wish i had booked for longer. Perfect location on the beach where I spent 99% of the time - you dont need to leave the lodge the whole time you're there. it's perfection. Breakfast and dinner is included and always delicious - make sure you try the pancakes and muffins! The rooms are simple,... More

Beautiful landscapes, clear warm water, but, above all, a really friendly staff. I'll never forget the great time a spent there. I enjoyed the sandy beach on site and also the delicious local food. The chef is truly talented

On a recent visit to Savai'i we stayed at a range of different accommodation and this was definitely the best value. Pros: Buffet breakfast - very simple continental fare but was great to be able to pick what you wanted, especially the homebaked muffins and banana smoothie! Big clean rooms - some of the cleanest and nicest rooms I've stayed... More

We stayed there for a few nights, great staff, nice beach and good food. Buffet breakfast, Dinner depending on the catch of the Day, Upgraded to air-conditioned room due to humidity, still reasonably priced (low season). The staff are great, we'll stay there again on our next trip to Samoa.

We had wanted to spend at least 1 night in an open beachfront fale just to be closest to the nature but discovered by late evening that, without any seabreeze, it’s just too warm and humid to be near to the radiating lava rocks right in front and the mozzies further added to the woes. We had to concede thereon... More

This was one of our favourite places on our trip to Samoa (Aug13). The staff were genuinely kind locals who wanted to make sure you had the best time at their lodge. Meals were generous and tasty and if you wanted some junk food you could walk across the road to the shop. We (Partner, Brother and I) stayed in... More

Vai Moana's lovely staff made sure that my two week stay with my 2 and 14 year old was a dream. The highlights were the boat trip out to Crab Island which has stunning snorkelling on the seaward side, seeing turtles in the lagoon at the front of the resort, and an amazing massage from Rosie. The free kayaks are... More

This is no 5 star impersonal resort, which is the great thing about it. It is run and owned by locals who care about their guests. It has friendly helpful staff and is situated on a beautiful beach, one of the few beaches accessible at high and low tide on Savai'i. There are kayaks and loungers on the beach. Swimming... More

Second time at Va-i-Moana and it was even better than remembered! Upon arrival we had booked a beach front fale. The weather had been average the past couple of days and the staff were concerned what that night would bring so they upgraded us to a bathroom bungalow. It was a much needed splurge of luxury as we were traveling... More
