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! To say that we are looking for every opportunity to... 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

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
