Smiley Tala picked us at the airport and drove us back to this small resort, only 6 bungalows (they are currently building 2 more). Bungalows are very spacious and clean. The shower is outdoor and amazing! They also have a budget option in a small building behind the resort, which I have not visited but where mostly surfers were staying.... More

We stayed here as a family with our two kids aged 4&5 years old. Our first stay was for a week where we relaxed after non-stop travelling for 6 months. We just pottered around, chatted to the staff, did some tours with Tala and hung out with the other guests who were really lovely. We loved the cultural day with... More

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

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...
