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

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

We just spent 5 beautiful nights on Honeymoon at Sa'Moana Resort. It was the perfect place to relax! The amazing staff went above and beyond to make our stay special. We stayed in the Pool View Bungalow which had amazing views of the ocean through the palm trees, and an awesome outdoor lava rock bathroom. The tours and service from... More

I want to start out by thanking Steve the manager , Daniel, one of the owners and all the staff from Sa'Moana Resort - particularly Friani - Surf Guide / Adventure Man - for making our stay a most memorable one. Right from the start with some frantic phone calls from Brisbane after our surf trip to the Solomon Islands... More

Samoa was a cheap holiday to get away. The resort was beautiful. The people were the most friendliest people I've met travelling. Private bungalows located on a stunning lagoon amongst coconut trees. Breath taking to wake up to each morning, go for a walk, kayak early morning, then snorkel by noon, relax in the hammocks in the evening. Awesome place... More

Thank you Hayley for your lovely review. I did respond earlier to you & a few other so I'm not sure what happened there. The weather must be getting colder in NZ... soI think you should come back to the warmth! Warm regards, Kirstin More

Without a doubt the best place to stay in Samoa. Private bungalows located on a beautiful lagoon amongst swaying cocononut palms. Beautiful infinity pool to swim in, excellent food, excellent everything. Kirsten the Aussie owner was a total delight and very helpful along with the staff members. We stayed 16 nights and even that was not long enough at this... More

Having only returned from my Samoan holiday by one week, and I can still smell the fresh ocean breeze that surrounded me at Sa'Moana Resort. Upon arriving after a night flight from Sydney, as we pulled into Sa'Moana the sun was actually rising as though it had been waiting to unveil this beautiful place. Located at one of the most...

Sa'Moana is set in a beautiful location, with pristine waters to snorkel over a fascinating underwater world just meters from the beach. There are kayaks available to borrow which are good quality and an abundance of hammocks to laze about in. It's the quintessential pacific island hideaway. The rooms are well appointed with refrigerator, fan, special outdoor (private and walled)... More
