A fantastic big bathroom with oversized shower and an oversized Spa. This was our second stay at Sinalei, the first time about 2 years ago. The great service from the staff was still the same...

A very beautiful serene place. We stayed in a garden room, beautiful deck from room and outlook, the room almost needs to be updated, specially for the price you pay. But still comfortable and no major issues. My favourite and best score for this place and why my family keep going back is the service from the staff. The service... More

Wonderful food setting and staff. Jeremy especially and the owner who went out of their way to make our wedding so special. Water is a little shallow within the lagoon for great swimming but there is a very pretty little pool.

Sinalei Reef Resort has one of the best maintained gardens of any island we have visited in the pacific. It was a joy to walk around. The views were stunning from any part of the resort especially our room, the bar, the pool and the restaurant over the water. Being an adult only resort was a plus. It was so... More

Sinalei Resort was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful, quiet surroundings of Samoa. We especially enjoyed the interaction with the staff and the cultural night performance was a highlight of the trip. The staff were always available to help, quick with a smile and laugh. The food on offer was divine, with very generous portions.
