Lovely setting and convenient location (5 minute drive to Apia). It's not near a beach but has a nice pool, and primo beaches are only a 20-30 minute drive away. The room was spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and air con + ceiling fan is a winning combo! As most reviews mention, the outdoor bathrooms are fantastic. Wish... More

Love the concept of outdoor bathrooms & thats why we booked. Good position above Apia and great staff and service. The owner is always there and very helpful. Her daughters and staff were excellent and we had two great stays there. I suppose if we had to critique then I would say there were areas of repair not attended to... More

Very friendly staff and Luna the manager, was great. Loved the location being slightly elevated but still relatively close to Apia CBD. Rooms were perfect and we loved the outdoor bathroom. There are two great restaurants across the road (recommended by the staff themselves) which we would also recommend you try..The Curry House and Kokobanana. It is also a 15-20... More

My stay at La Manumea comprised first class service. The manageress & staff were so accommodating and friendly, providing the true Samonan warmth that the travel books describe. The rooms are fantastic including the outdoor bathroom which is ideal in a hot climate. My only criticism is the kitchenette in the rooms were slightly dusty, but the overall experience here... More

My sister and I stayed here for 2 nights in March, I would have to say it is one of the best places we have stayed! The staff were so helpful and absolutely lovely, they were more than happy to help us out! The location of the hotel is perfect, allowing you to be away from the city centre yet... More

This is definitely one of the more up-scale places in Apia so if you are on the cheap consider looking elsewhere. 2 nights cost around 400 tala. Located up the cross-island road in Vailima, Le Manumea definitely has its charm. The rooms are very large with open air bathrooms lined with cobblestone. The rooms have fans and A/C plus televisions... More

The hotel blew my expectations out of the water. Located just outside of Apia, this hotel offers a retreat from the hustle and bustle of the 'town' area. Each of the bungalows is surrounded with beautiful foliage, creating an intimate feeling & privacy. The interior beauty of the rooms matches the hotels surroundings, embracing traditional Samoan decor while maintaining a... More

We stayed for 6 nights and had a great time. The room was clean and a good size. The outside bathroom and the porch overlooking the Pacific are highlights. Luna and her family looked after us very well, and nothing was a problem. The Fia-Fia night was great, and the meals we had in the restaurant were all fine.

We stayed for 6 days and were pleasantly surprised by Le Manumea, the room was great with a novel 'outdoor' bathroom. One (minor) thing that I thought was not a good look was being presented with two (very welcome) bottles of chilled water on our arrival, only to discover that these had been added to the bill. Some niggles with... More

We recently spent 7 nights at Le Manumea, and after staying there 12 months ago it really felt like we were coming home.Luna greeted us with her warm Polynesian smile, offering us breakfast while our room was being prepared, which was welcomed after a long night flight from Australia. The gardens are immaculate and the rooms cleaned daily. There is... More
