3 bodyboarders celebrating our 40th birthdays this year. After advice from The Perfect Wave, we decided on Sa'Moana, taking advantage of their great SurfX package, and I have to say that has been the decision of teh century!!! I believe the people make your stay, and Amos, Tua, Tala, and the rest of the staff at Sa'Moana made our holiday.... More

Loved every minute, from friendly pick up at the airport in air conditioned vehicle to the last second! Fantastic beach front property, loved the outdoor lava shower! Trips out with Tala were really worthwhile, see all the best places with safety and insider knowledge. Food was great, and varied, and considering the location, reasonably priced. Every single member of staff... More

My first visit to Samoa with my husband and 3 kids under 8 years of age and we booked this resort hoping for seclusion, snorkelling, great food, a fale right on the beach, great service, a more local experience and relaxation AND we got everything we asked for and more!

This is a beautiful, small resort that is right in a palm grove on a lovely beach. It is exactly as described and shown on the website. It is very well run by Australian and Samoan staff, with an excellent restaurant, bar and public areas. It has a very relaxed and informal feel and somehow encourages a very friendly atmosphere...

I wanted a 'beach holiday', we researched online to see what we could find, and we found Sa'Moana Resort in Samoa. What a find!!! If you want a quiet, peaceful beach holiday, this is the place!! We organized for transport from the resort to pick us up at the airport, and were so glad we did, as the taxi drivers... More

This is our 2nd visit to Samoa, this time with a 1.5 year old. This was a great spot if you plan to just stay here for a few days. It is a little out of the way if you need to go into Apia, or some of the places on the south east coast ie black sand beach, Sua... More

We honeymooned at Sa’Moana for 6 nights last week (November 2014). It was superb; the fales are waterfront and very private. It was clean, comfortable and really relaxing. My husband and I had the best of both worlds; he was able to surf while I chilled out in luxury. The sunsets were like something from a movie set, it was... More
