My wife and I just returned home from a week at Sinalei. As seasoned travelers, we have been fortunate to have stayed in many resorts and hotels and the Sinalei experience has been one of the top experiences ever.

We stayed in an ocean view fale for 9 nights. The location of the resort right on a beautiful beach on the south coast of Upolu is perfect for a getaway from New Zealand. The gardens and setting are stunning. The accommodation, restaurants (x2) are comfortable and we enjoyed hearing the histories of the buildings from the funny: Harry's bar,... More

Went to Sinalei for a wedding reception and it was a beautiful spot with very nice gardens and fortunately the weather decided to be nice while we were there. Definitely worth going to or as a place to stay. Not far from Coconuts as well so can walk down along the beach to go out on the surf boat.

A really tropical resort. Very nice friendly staff, very clean. Great food. Strong currents out the front of the resort but has a really nice Beach. Better than a lot of beaches for swimming as there's plenty of sand not just sharp coral. Rooms have stereos which was good. We had a game of golf and tennis which was good... More

Sinalei is set off the road, down a long drive. As soon as you enter the gates you think you are in paradise. The gardens are tropical, the reception is welcoming, the rooms are well appointed & the facilities fantastic. We had an ocean view villa (as there were 4 of us) with a lovely large deck looking out onto... More

Sinalei is a rough jewel in the Pacfiic. Friendly Staff, typical of the enthusiasm that Samoans are showing towards tourists. We stayed in a garden cottage, which was air conditioned. The food was great, and given that ui am a celiac, they catered somewhat for my issues, although not a full understanding of what that entailed. Pool is lovely, as... More
