My husband and I stayed at Sinalei Resort for five nights in July - escaping the NZ winter. It is a gorgeous spot and the staff were absolutely amazing. Very lovely and willing to chat. The food is also delicious. We loved it, and would happily return. One thing to be aware of is that it is about 1/2 hr... More

My teenage daughter and I stayed at Sinalei Reef Resort in early July 2014 and had a brilliant experience. Our aim was to relax on the beach, drink tropical cocktails and learn something of the Samoan culture - we could have achieved all of this without leaving Sinalei. From our accommodation (Beachfront Villa No 5) we awoke each morning to... More

The only negative thing I would say about this resort is "Don't waste your money on the spa treatments. I had a facial, and it went like this, lemon grass was put on the face then for the next 10 minutes my legs were softly pounded. This was repeated 3 times, and that was your facial (50 aud). I also... More

We stayed at Sinalei Resort for 6 nights. It was a well presented resort with lovely friendly staff. Food was great, little or lots to do depending on what you felt like doing. Spa was awesome & we enjoyed the couples massage with a bottle of wine. Would suggest more evening activities as an option & better lighting around some... More

My partner and I spent several nights at this stunning resort for both our birthdays. We were upgraded to an Oceanview room without requesting it. It had a huge deck where we enjoyed an amazing seafood platter and were greeted by a friendly resident cat. We fell asleep to the sounds of the waves gently lapping the shore which was... More

My husband and I recently spent 10 nights at this beautiful relaxing property. The resort is set in expansive tropical grounds with it's own small golf course, although we found it too hot to use it! Note that if you fancy a game take a couple of balls and tees as, even though there are no green fees, you will... More
