The fales (rooms) are clean and comfortable, well appointed with generous proportions, well maintained and serviced. Being stand alone they are also quiet. The resort is in a peaceful beach front location away from the town of Apia. Staff are efficient, attentive, friendly and have a sense of fun and making guests feel appreciated and welcome. Be careful if you... More

Lovely tranquil place to unwind. Truly paradise. Sinalei exceeded our expectations and we will return. Snorkeling, kayaking, nightly entertainment, daily tours to special Samoa places. The staff are genuine and make you feel special.

Sinalei was amazing. It was everything you could hope or ask for in an adults only resort. We highly recommend to anyone who wants to experience relaxation, good food, variety, value for money, beautiful beds, and of course - warm Samoan hospitality. Thank you Sinalei. Your staff and property are amazing. Will be returning soon for another great holiday!!

The highlight in the room was the bathroom, set... More
