We were told that this beach was the place to be on Upolu, and we weren't disappointed. A stunning part of Samoa, postcard stuff! Perhaps the most beautiful beach, but we didn't see them all! This felt like the true backpackers spot, where you can make friends with travellers, have a beer on the beach, engage really easily with friendly... More

Food was very good and plentiful, staff was very warm and we loved the whole communal setting Not really our usual style as it's not a backers place, but we thought it was still very good value for money

Everything about staying at Taufua was absolutely perfect. If you are not seeking luxury, but are happy with rustic accommodation, superb food, friendly people and a perfect tropical setting right on amazing Lalomanu Beach, here you have found paradise. I had only 2 all too short nights here on my trip around Upolu, wished I had planned for longer, and... More

We arrived at Taufua while it was pouring with rain and blowing a gale and were a little concerned that our fale wouldn't stand up to the weather. We were wrong. The fale was warm, dry and stable even during the hurricane strength winds. It can get a little noisy being right on the beach as the waves obviously continue... More

Amazing! Loved staying in a beach front open fale (hut). I have a 3 year old-she loved it! Meals are served family style with lots of variety and plenty of food for all! Really loved being the only American tourists-lots of Aussies, Kiwis and Euros...so chill and friendly. Great staff and family owned/run place-they make you feel like family right... More

Kia ora Talofa. We LOVE Taufua fales. We are a fun of rustic relaxed living and getting involved in the local culture and we felt we could do this at Taufua. They also have wifi if you need it and a nice living area to chill, read and eat. Ive never drunk so uch coca cola but you just feel... More

We love this place. This was our 2nd time here in 3 years. You can't beat the beachfront fales, but you have to walk to the shared bathroom. They also have hard sided fales with bath, but sleeping right on the water with the "flap" up can't be beat. The staff are friendly. It's a family run place. Breakfast and... More

We only stayed here the one night as a result of not booking enough nights at the beach fales next door but I would definitely recommend it if only for the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The fales are very basic but clean. Important tip: make sure you bring a bath towel as well as a beach towel as they aren't provided.... More

This is definetly the best place to visit in Samoa. Friendly staff make your stay a pleasure. We visited the fales with four boys and all of us loved it. Good variety of food for breakfast and dinner which is included in your rate. The place is clean and oh so close to the Ocean. At night can be a... More

Taufua Beach is an amazing destination for a great getaway from a busy lifestyle. Its located on the south-east of the Upolo Island of Samoa, well away from the busier towns/villages between the airport and capital Apia. ts a long drive, but well worth it! (We had a hire car for the whole time which allowed for a lot more... More
