But 40 years ago I could only afford to go camping in France! We visited in March 2015 with daughter and three grand kids, travelling from a nice and comfortable hotel in Apia. Taufua charged us a nominal 50 WST for a day visit with use of a spare fale, shower and toilet. Seemed reasonable. The beach was stunning, the... More

Never have I dreamed so much about going back to a place in the world like I do for Lalomanu. And, there is no better place to experience Island life than at Taufua. The staff are like family, and treat you like so. Breakfast and Dinner are always fulfilling and plentyful. The communal eating of Breakfast and dinner is really... More

Stunning beach. Good food. Family that runs it is very helpful and hospitable. We stayed in the aircon units up the hill and drove down to breakfast etc. Fales on the beach are also available. We hope to return.

My girlfriend and me had an amazing time there! We stayed in a closed beach fale which was nice with a large mosquito net and double size mattress on the floor. Do not make the mistake to expect too high standards, it's all about an authentic Samoan experience! We loved the good food which was always plenty (at the fia... More

Taufua Beach Fales was a great choice for myself and my partner. We chose an enclosed beachfront fale and were glad we did - a ceiling fan, light, mosquito net, raised bed and power point were included in the room and we had our own balcony with table and two chairs. There are very few steps from the fale to... More

After paying for a week, we left early due to a few factors (no refund is given) Firstly we paid extra for the ensuite Fale after spending a few days in an open Fale elsewhere we were looking forward to an enclosed one with running water and our own toilet, we were highly disappointed and this ruined what had so...

My kids loved the Beach fale experience...just so wonderful to have the cool sea breeze which provided instant relief from the hot sun and made it so much easier for them to sleep better at night or even have a nap during the day. They especially loved the swimming....Lalomanu has one of the best sand beaches in Samoa. Lots to... More
