What can I say, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Le Vasa, and your about to hear why!
As we drove up to Le Vasa you enter a tropical jungle sanctuary, the gravel path leading through the resort to the reception area provides a wonderfully serene vista leading you to the main complex. Waves of warm relaxation as your drive deeper into the magnificent gardens.
I must admit I was quite excited and we hadn't even checked in yet! We were greeted by the manager, a wonderfully warm and welcoming lady! She brought smiles to our faces and made the experience of checking in like we were checking into her home. Ever so welcome and ever so happy to have us arrive. (I knew we were going to love staying at Le Vasa!)
We were a tad early to check-in as our rooms were still being cleaned, however we had been given full access to the facilities and invited to take a drink at the bar. You don't need to tell me twice ;o)
The grounds are wonderful, a lot of care and pride has gone into the architecture of the grounds and gardens, and are beautifully maintained. The diversity of the tropical flora touches you and is quite an immersive experience leading to relaxation and peace.
The pool is lovely, and enjoys full sun for those wanting to work your tan lines, and the bar is a stone throw away. A games room is just off to the side of the bar and the pool with pool table and television were we caught up many times for a drink and a few rounds of pool in the evening.
Our rooms were gorgeous, fly screens on all windows (so nothing gets in, not that you need to worry about that at Le Vasa). The room was well ventilated, in fact we opened up all the windows to get that lovely sea breeze blowing through, there is aircon however I prefer nature to air conditioning (I've left the office for a reason!)
Comfortable beds, Samoan decor, and hygienic facilities which face a wondrous expanse of ocean. You guessed it, the water is that clear you see a myriad of aquatic life swimming past as if you were not there. Sleeping in the Oceanvilla's revitalises your mind and soul ready for a day of exploring which we were set to do.
The restaurant has an excellent selection of local and European foods and the warm and welcoming staff care for you every need with a smile. Please show them your manners they are wonderful people please show them your gratitude with a smile and conversation :)
If you need assistance with any tours or things to do, please engage with staff they are friendly and more than happy to get you to where you need to go.
But on the WiFi.. Ok so I relax by being connected, I know, I'm sick and addicted. Le Vasa use Lavaspot which you can find around the island at various place, its fast and efficient and good value for money. Yep my Facebook friends were probably getting sick of all the amazing photos I kept uploading ha ha! Poor them :P
A note on day passes, 20 Tala grants you access to the pool, beach and other facilities. We actually stopped in while waiting for our flight back home as we had an evening flight, everyone was so happy to see us return, so a quick long island ice tea and we hit the road once again.
In closing, this boutique resort is worth every Tala, the staff are truly amazing and the one of the nicest things I felt was you feel like family, your are home when you are at Le Vasa.
Thank you for so many good memories, and look forward to saying with you again!
All the best, and please keep well, lots of love,
Reece and Ben from New Zealand
our check-in was seamless. We did arrive a tad early to check-in however
