We recently returned from an excellent family holiday in Samoa. It was a wonderful destination, one of the best countries I have been to, physically beautiful and unspoiled by mass package tourism. We were truly lucky to have chosen to base ourselves at Sa'Moana resort. Our entire family absolutely loved the place and more so the people who worked there.... More

After staying a few nights at another resort we were excited to see Sa'moana due to the premium price and great images. However, we were a bit disappointed by the limited menu and pricing. (example fruit juice=$11AUD) I had also sent an email enquiring if surf transfers would be included which wasn't replied to, turns out they weren't, and for... More

We had a lovely week at Sa'amoana Resort. The accommodation is fairly basic but was perfect for our needs. We ate at the restaurant in most days and the food was good quality.

My husband and I stayed here for 7 nights over the Melbourne Cup extended holiday in Aussie and went home truly relaxed and energised. This place is simply gorgeous and value for money.

We spent a week at Sa'moana in early November and had an absolutely wonderful time! It was actually our second visit to Sa'moana, the first being five years ago, and it was so nice to see some of the same staff there, and that they remembered us! What was even nicer, was that while we enjoyed our stay last time,... More

After recently spending some time in Samoa I feel I have to review this resort. Away from town and situated on the most beautiful beach front this boutique resort ticks all the boxes. Surfing is a big part of the resort but there is something for everyone. Amazing snorkelling in front of the resort, kayaking, adventure land tours and an... More

We were in Samoa at the start of the wet season but that didn't dampen our spirits! From the moment Yosia (driver) picked us up to the moment stepped into the resort, we were greeted with warm smiles. Amani and his team were excellent!

We have just come back from a week at Sa'Moana Resort. An amazing setting at the very end of a dirt road through Salamumu Village, surrounded by coconut palms. We loved our room, comfortable beds, a very cool outdoor rock shower and a view straight out onto the reef, falling asleep to the sound of the surf. We were there... More

The food was great and the resort was beautiful. The Samoan people are great and their culture is wonderful. The resort was clean and the staff were very professional and helpful. We got hooked up with Tala to drive us to different surf spots and around the island. He is the man.
