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

Vai Moana has everything you need for a relaxing or exciting stay in Savai'i. Comfortable accomodation, great staff, a variety of activities and entertainment set in a beautiful bay. We enjoyed snorkeling, swimming and eating some amazing food! Very beautiful and is fondly remembered as a highlight of our stay.

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

We stayed on a beach front fale, that was clean and comfortable. Food was traditional Samoan and we experienced fresh caught mahi mahi for dinner. The people here are ultra friendly and the resort provided great entertainment especially Fiafai night dancing and music.

My family and I stayed for 1 night and we loved every bit of it. We left only regretting not booking another night. 2 words to describe this beautiful place "HIDDEN GEM". We couldn't believe our eyes when we checked in. The view from our beach fale! It was stunning. The bungalows and beach fales were I found very fascinating.... More

We really enjoyed our stay. But! No hot water even asking the, about it. We ended up just living with it. Also beach very rough with coral. We stayed in unit, clean with bathroom etc, just no hot water. Food good, friendly staff

But then i liked it so much that i extended my stay and extended and extended....Actually, i didn't like to leave anymore. I just simply loved it.

I have stayed in the open fale previously and hoped the Sunset fale would be worth the extra. My partner and I loved it. Spacious room and bathroom, great view from the balcony over the water (often saw turtles, locals fishing ...) comfortable bed, quirky out door shower... It was very nice to find all the other good things- friendly... More
