“Perfect for families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

One of the best places we have stayed in the South Pacific. Fabulous staff, great food and a perfect beach. It's the first time we have travelled overseas with our twins who were 21 months old and we couldn't have picked a better place. The bungalows were large with a seperate bedroom with 2 portacots for the boys and a kitchenette to heat up food for them as well. The resort is small enough that it felt perfectly safe leaving the boys sleeping in the room in the heat of the day while we were on the sun loungers on the beach right outside. The lagoon was crystal clear and thanks to the reef there aren't waves and are lots of fish swimming around which made it excellent for their first time in the ocean as well. The food at the restaurant was wonderful and the pizza place across the road was excellent as well. Best of all were the staff, everyone went out of their way to make things easy and relaxing for us. We'd go back there in a heartbeat.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family. We were greeted by Arie and later we met the managers, Tony and Melissa. The Bar Boys are a Treat!
Our little bungalow was a stone throw from crystal blue water. Inside was lovely and clean and surrounded with fresh flowers. Glorious sunsets everynight! We catered for ourselves which is cheaper but did treat ourselves one night of fresh fish.
I do have to say that the service here at Savaii Lagoon resort is the best we have ever had! We have done alot of Island travelling and have felt the most welcomed here :-)
Most of the reviews have summed everything up so I won't double up!
Once again, A very big thank you to Tony and Melissa. I had a tear in my eye when we left!

Best stay in Samoa. This resort outclassed the other 2 resorts we stayed in. The friendliness, service, food and fresh water were excellent. Tony and Melissa were wonderful hosts. The contribution to and care of the local village also gave this resort a sense of community that showed with the local staff - thanks June! We will be back.

The resort has such a stunning beach location and we loved swimming in the beautiful beach and exploring the amazing coral right on the resort's doorstep. The restaurant had great food and overlooked the beach. We loved the range of things to do. The the Plantation walk was the highlight of our week long Samoa trip, completely due to our charming, enigmatic local guide June. We also loved the freindly service from the snorkeling company accross the road. The only downside was the lack of air-conditioning in the rooms, making sleep a little challenging on the very hot nights. Tony, Melissa and all the staff were amazing hosts, really making an effort to make us feel welcome. Even on of our party being struck with appendicitis was not too much for their skills!

dayslong, Owner at Savaii Lagoon Resort, responded to this review, October 7, 2012
Thank you for an excellent review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday and the facilities we provide. To answer your concern about lack of aircon, we do state on our website that we have overhead fans. We do our utmost to remain environmentally friendly and sustainable, and we find generally that our guests feel that aircon is not necessary. However, in the last few weeks, it has been unusually warm with very little breeze to relieve the still air. The locals themselves have been complaining about the high temps and lack of breeze. Unfortunately, our managers were not aware that you had difficulties with the lack of aircon, otherwise they would have given you another floor standing fan to alleviate your problem. We do hope that this one off problem will not deter you from visiting again. With our alofas and best wishes from the Savaii Lagoon team.

The perfect remedy for those in need of total rest and relaxation. A beautiful location, from the delightful bungalows to the sandy beach and warm, clear blue sea. Melissa and Tony were the perfect hosts, they made us feel like they genuinely cared and nothing was too much trouble. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and what a lovely surprise to find the maids had decorated the room with flowers everywhere and heart-shaped towels! The restaurant overlooks the lagoon, delicious food and the menu changes daily. We can honestly say this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays we have had.

Our family of four recently returned from a FANTASTIC holiday at the resort. The setting is stunning - everything you picture when thinking of a pacific island getaway (sun, white sand, warm water teeming with fish). The bungalows are well set up, beautifully decorated, and are very clean and comfortable. Our hosts (Tony and Melissa) are friendly, lovely people, with a strong service focus. All staff at the resort were friendly and helpful.

The food was great. Our children are 6 and 9 years, and our whole family's tastes were well satisfied. A lot of thought has gone into the daily menus, which are local, fresh, and delicious.

Highly recommended as a relaxing destination. We can't wait to return!
