Enjoyed the stay at Sinalei Reef Resort. Accommodation excellent, location perfect. Enjoy the pool and friend staff. The cultural night is well worth going to. Golf and tennis available. We would certainly come again. Weather at this time of year can be uncertain, we have had beautifully sunny days 30 degrees plus everyday.

There is only one word to describe the Sinalei Resort & Spa and its staff : PERFECT ! We spent 6 short but wonderful days in this paradise with the kindest, nicest, most friendly and efficient staff ever. January is a quiet season so we had the resort almost just for us. The food is delicious with locally sourced produce.... More

This is the best place to stay in Samoa. Beautiful views and the friendliest/best staff I have come across in a very long time. An outdoor shower was a great novelty. No TV which is great. Cellphone reception not great, but that didn't matter. They take the time to remember your name and spend a lot of time answering questions... More

My partner and I (late 20s - early 30s) came to Samoa for the first time over Christmas 2015. We wanted to go away debating Fiji, Bali and Samoa. We were swayed by a Virgin Magazine of the To Sua Ocean Trench. We stayed for 6 nights, hiring a car to explore the island. Samoa was a very welcoming, safe... More

The staff were very accommodating and kind however they were let down by an overpriced and tired resort. Whilst we were in Samoa we stayed in other resorts for a fraction of the cost with much more modern and fresh facilities. However we booked a couple of nights at Sinalei for a real treat and a bit of a splurge... More

Without the staff and the amazing views, our stay at Sinalei would have been poor. We stayed 7 days from the 27th of December to the 3rd of Jan. The resort has a great location and the views of the sunset over dinner were absolutely stunning. The pool and gardens are also highlights of the resort, along with the friendly,... More
