Trip of a life time! Words or even photos can't do justice for how strong we feel & how hard we fell in love with our holiday at Sa'Moana Resort. Absolutely perfect. Anticipation & expectation consumed us when we arrived on our very early morning flight from Brisbane. But as soon as we were met by the amazing, to say... More

It was a pleasure staying at this resort (sadly for only 2 nights)! Lovely, clean accommodation, outside courtyard shower, pleasant staff, tasty meals, characterful place with a maximum of about 40 guests. Great secluded spot right on the ocean, with great snorkeling. The surfers in our family went on 2 surf trips with Ferani, which they really enjoyed. We visited... More

Our family had a amazing 10 days at Samoana Resort, probably the most relaxing holiday we have had to date. The location is absolutely stunning with fantastic snorkeling straight out front or just a short kayak away in the next lagoon. The staff were friendly and very attentive without being overbearing (special thanks to Tua,Tala & Manga for helping make... More

Had a great trip, staff were very friendly and provide great service. I got lucky with the waves and scored some excellent surf. The resort has 2 fast boats that get you to the breaks fast. The surf guides knowledge of local conditions always got you to the best waves. Virgin canceled my return flight, Sa'Moana were very helpful in... More

Words aren't good enough to describe it! This was our first trip to Samoa and it definitely exceeded every expectation. The wonderful staff at Sa'moana did absolutely everything they could to make our holiday an unique experience. Kirsty organized everything to be seamless, in particular transfer and early check-in Sunday morning after an overnight flight from Brisbane. Jason made sure... More

Beautiful resort, with well appointed rooms, comfy bed! Beautiful outdoor bathroom. However, the things that lacked (considering paying top dollar $300 AU per night) pool side, no day beds or sun lounges (2 camping style ones arrived the day before we left), food was average, again paying $15 AU for lunch approx & $20-25AU for dinner. Brekky is continental. But... More

My husband,two sons and I came for our first trip to Samoa on a family holiday. What a beautiful, beautiful place. We were greeted at the airport with fresh cold coconuts and ice cold washers, a fabulous start to a fabulous resort. Our room was beautiful and the outdoor lava shower is just fantastic, loved showering out there especially under... More

Just came back from our honeymoon. 7 days spent at the amazing Sa'moana Resort. Not only the place is amazingly beautiful, but the staff is awesome and made our holidays so special. We were pampered with a beautifully decorated room, cold coconuts when picked up from the airport, gorgeous beach just a few meters in front of our room, a... More

We had booked a 2 week surf trip to the Solomon Islands, but a severe weather event meant we had to cancel that trip at the last minute. As we would not get holidays together again in a long time we decided to find another location, and quickly as we were already 4 days into our trip. We telephoned Sa'Moana... More

We stayed here for almost a week on our honeymoon back in 2007 and it was absolutely devine. Kept the husband busy with the surfing charters, and kept me happy being able to chill out by the pool. The bungalows are just gorgeous, nicely furnished, making them feel modern without taking away from that tropical island feel, with awesome outdoor... More
