I recently stayed at the Vaea Hotel, I have stayed at several other Hotels in Apia and regularly travel to Apia for work. The rooms are clean, simple and safe. The best part of the Vaea Hotel is the welcoming and helpful staff and the fresh breakfast each morning. It is in a central location which meant I could walk... More

I chose Vaea Hotel based on their website and it was exactly as advertised but with more. As a woman travelling by herself on business for 7 days, I definately felt very safe staying here. I really wanted a hotel with a pool but thought I'd give this a place a go, and very happy that I did. The perfect... More

I can't agree more with all the rave reviews of this gorgeous little garden hotel and Dean and Lupe, the owners who make you feel like family the minute you arrive! I stayed for a week and it was really perfect in every way. It could not have been better. Loved my little upstairs room, the staff, service, location ..... More

I can't sing the praises of the owners, Dean and Lupe (hope that's right). You can tell they love their boutique hotel, they love Samoa and want to share their love of their island with you. The stay was simply faultless, I am a female solo traveller and they personally took me out on the town on my last night... More

Arrived on Sunday early (about 8.00AM) allowed to leave our bags there while we went on a fishing trip. Dean & Lupe were absolutely stunning in their ability to turn everything you wanted to do easily into reality. Knowledge is king and this was available in abundance. Rooms were simple but spotlessly clean and all staff were helpful and polite.... More

We stayed for 10 days in June and July and I have to say that it was one of the nicest places we’ve stayed. At the Vaea Hotel you can be as secluded and private or engaged with others as you like. The units are spotlessly clean, fitted with good quality air-conditioning, are spacious and have a great outlook to... More

Comfortable, quiet, clean and Dean and Lupe were excellent hosts and conversationalists. You'll be able to relax away from the downtown bustle, and the smaller size of the hotel means that you'll get individualized attention from the owners that you won't get at the larger hotels. Definitely would recommend for vacationers and business travelers.

We have just spent some time with Dean and Lupe and the family. We spent 8 days after being in an upmarket hotel that was quite satisfactory and well serviced, but you were just one of the crowd. It had no atmosphere or warmth. Not so the Vaea, from the moment we arrived we were treated like long lost family,... More

Stayed 5 nights. The room was very clean, confortable with air cond and balcony with a small table to relax. The windows and walls are sound proof, so it makes the night very quiet. The owners Lupe and Dean are very friendly and professionnal, they gave good advice about every thing, from restaurants to places to go to, they called... More

I recently stayed at the Vaea Hotel as a solo traveller - what a great spot! It's a very friendly family-run motel, tucked into a garden on the edge of central Apia. The rooms are clean and spacious, with large comfortable beds, a small fridge, kettle, TV, air-con and a balcony perfect for sitting out. The owners, Dean and Lupe,... More
