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

Sa'moana is beautiful and the genuinely friendly staff are what really make it. I got quite sick when I was here (not because of them, a parasite I'd picked up earlier) and they really looked after me, giving me free coconuts to rehydrate me and a late check-out, as well as just calming my nerves and telling me I'll be...

We stayed back in 2010 and the resort and rooms have been completely refurbished since then. They've also extended the outdoor dining area and added a games room with a million dollar view! It’s a small place and we love this the most. You can hang at the beach, in a hammock, or your deck, and even when they're full... More

We (5 adults and 2 boys under 7) spent 8 days here and it was absolutely incredible. The staff are fantastic, the food is fresh, delicious and enough variety to get through our time without trying everything - same with the kids meals. The location is incredible, away from it all and beautiful. The tours are great and a good... More

My family of 6 had a fantastic stay here. Great accom, great food, all reasonably priced. The location is postcard perfect. All the staff and guides are so friendly and love to answer questions about the beautiful Samoan culture. Would recommend the day trips with the resort and the wonderful Tala. You get to see so much more than you... More

We have just returned form an enjoyable holiday in Samoa where we made some wonderful friends. I have been there many times so knew what to expect but this was our first time at Sa'moana Resort. Considering they charge a premium we were disappointed with the lack of beach loungers, the price of food (they know they have you captive... More

Samoana Resort was a bit of a last minute choice for us, and we are so happy we stumbled across it! After being really disapointed with a booking up the road, following a day of broken down rental cars and a heap of driving, we decided to move on to stay at another place. When we were about to give... 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

Thank you Hilary for your lovely review. We really do have 'soul and personality' here and we're big enough that the resort can be full but you can feel like you have the whole place to yourself! We think you should come back soon as 2 nights is definitely not enough here! Best wishes, Kirstin More
