My partner and I spent 3 nights at Sinalei in a beach front Fale in October after several friends recommended it. We will be back! Sinalei is a beautiful, calm and welcoming resort. It has taken the very best of Samoa and showcased it beautifully whilst staying true to its roots. The most obvious example of this was the staff. I cannot speak more highly about the warmth, genuine friendliness, patience and generosity shown to us by each and every staff member; from the serene manageress herself to the security guards. The waiters and bar staff were exceptional and made you feel like they were welcoming into a place they were genuinely proud to work in. We had some unusual requests (like organizing a tattoo artist to come and complete my partner's cultural tattoos) but each request was dealt with efficiency, grace and kindness. We even had an embarrassing issue when my credit card was temporarily blocked (the bank suspected a fraudulent transaction) but the reception staff showed me nothing but sympathy and understanding rather than disapproval and annoyance. This is very much the Samoan way, so I was told, and it was nice to see this attitude wasn't washed away by corporate hospitality.
The Spa rooms are the most beautiful and natural I have ever been in with views of the ocean and the sea breeze ventilating the room.
The food was fusion western and samoan and done very well. The restaurant location was outstanding.
We spoke to quite a few guests from visiting resorts who all commented that Sinalei appeared to have the best staff and food so we feel quite confident we chose the best place to stay.
Sinalei is a really special place. Thank you to everyone there who made our stay perfect!
