I stayed at three fale in the two weeks in June. Vaiula, Fao Fao and Lauiula. I picked them for the activities they offered. Vaiula - caving, canoeing,snorkelling and fishing. Fao Fao bicycle rental and snorkelling. Lauiula samoan canoe, fishing and snorkelling. All were fantastic, and highly recommended.Best about Vaiula is dave's private cave, location of beach from main road, and Nugg the aussie barman. Lauiala - gorgeous beach as beautiful as lalomanu, good snorkelling and chatty Richard for his stories on samoa.
Fao fao - turned out there is no bicycle for rent. Broken down. However the first dinner simply got my most favourite fale vote. Beef soup with vege, octopus,fish, chicken etc what a yummy feast.subsequent dinners though not as many dishes are still the best among the three fales. Besides the food, the fia fia night, the sunday umu, the beautiful voices of the singers,the friendly family members from young kids to old including the young chap who wants to be my son in law, though I can't say I feel like part of the family, I did feel more than a tourist guest. It is this feeling and the yummy food that I like fao fao most.
Other small gestures - free use of office pc and internet if just checking email and very short use. Free lift to ocean trench with owner going to apia.
