Just 24 hours ago we are snorkeling around the jetty at Vaimoana when we bump into a friendly and rather curious turtle. Just one of the many wonderful turtle moments over our 9 day stay at Vaimoana Lodge. Breakfast follows our last turtle encounter with THE BEST coconut jam pancakes. Crepe thin and oozing with a sauce made of caramelized... More

Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids stayed here for 2 nights in July. We have to say we had the best service in all of Samoa here! We had a lovely visit to the school and also went snorkelling. The snorkelling was amazing but would have been more enjoyable at a higher tide. The highlight of our stay... More

We stayed only 2 nights and regret not being able to stay longer. The friendly family atmosphere of this place is possibly its biggest drawing card. This coupled with the fair room prices and generous meals (breakfast and dinner included in our package) made it an ideal place to start our 2014 Samoan Adventure. The boys in our group booked...

We stayed at the Vai Moana, Le Lagoto and Luisa's Lagoon Resort while spending a week in Savaii this past June. The Vai Moana had very nice rooms and the best staff and meals. I highly recommend it if you'll be in the Asau area. I preferred this region to Savaii over Manase. Steve

Tile, Nu'u, Luma, Lilo, Tavida, Taka and all the other staff at Vaimoana did so much to make our stay the most memorable stay in Samoa. We learnt about Samoa, were invited to a local Fia fia celebration, visited a local school, the local village, etc etc Our 3 boys had a blast and had the best time at Vaimoana... More

Vaimoana, the most remakable place I have ever staged at. All staff members where incredible, lovely, warm people who made our stay 100% perfect. Whatever your needs were, they were catered too straight away. The food was delicious! We stayed in Sunset Fale 1, and what a view, and what a basic but incredibly homely room it was too :)... More

Although a long way from the wharf (about 1 3/4 hours) it was worth the drive. The setting is idyllic,the food delicious and the staff so friendly, helpful and obliging. We thoroughly enjoyed having a sunset fale over the water. I would have no hesitation recommending a stay at Vaimoana and would certainly come back again.

I cant say enough about Sale and his team...what a great time we had at Va i Moana. the staff were attentive and the food absolutely delicious. We visited in March which was the rainy season...gorgeous hot days, with the odd rain shower thrown in to keep you cool. The beach had a safe lagoon, and it didn't really matter... More
