“A great option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Le Vasa is a great option if you are looking for somewhere to stay that is close to the wharf (For Travel to Savaii) and to the airport. Also its not a long drive to Apia. We have stayed here and also and at Aggie Greys Resort and Le Vasa is much smaller and quieter which we far preferred. Also the rooms and the food are far superior. We had a 2 bedroom fale on the water and it was just lovely. Very comfortable and so peaceful. The pool is lovely for adults and older children, but if you have young children its rather deep. The staff were very kind and helpful and the grounds are lovely.The breakfast was yummy and we thought the other meals were delicious. Only small niggles - there is no children's menu and the lunch food is ok but dinner was largely not really suitable for them. Also paying adult prices for 3 children's meals is not ideal when all of the children are under 10 and will not eat an adults sized meal. Also, and this is not a problem unique to Le Vasa, its almost everywhere but you are forced to purchase bottled water. It would be great if some places could make an investment in a water cooler system that people could refill their bottles from, and this is not due to an objection to paying for the water, more from an environmental perspective.

Room Tip: The rooms closer to the rd may not be as lovely and peaceful.

Thank you for saying Le Vasa is a great option if you are looking for somewhere to stay that is close to the wharf (For Travel to Savaii) and to the airport and its not a long drive to Apia. The 2 bedroom villa is perfect for families close to the water, very comfortable and peaceful. We are glad you enjoyed the pool it is really god to be able to swim and see the view as well and for young children since the pool is deep we also have a spa pool close by.
Thank you for saying the staff were very kind and helpful and the grounds are lovely. thank you for saying our food was yummy and delicious. Since we primarily cater to adults and only open to children for the school holidays we are happy to split a meal if requested.We do offer daily refills of bottled water in the rooms and if you do not want to buy extra bottled water we do have filtered water available at the bar and you can boil the water. You can drink the water at our resort it has been tested by the NZ army, although If you are not sure or have a sensitive stomach then these are your options. We hope you return to Le Vasa Resort again one day and Thank you again for a lovely review and the time your shared with us on your holiday in Samoa.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had had a week on Savai'i before coming here so we were a bit disappointed that we couldn't just walk of the beach and go snorkelling. However, the gardens were superb, the food was excellent, the staff were delightful and very helpful. The place was relaxing with kayacks, paddle boards etc. It's a good base to go tour the island(s).
Superb linen and quality beds and showers

Room Tip: all rooms are good looking over the ocean

We came to Samoa without booking an accommodation. We spent all day cruising around the island to find some place to stay. Lots of places, but price is above the Moon! And finally we've been so lucky to find this little paradise!
This is the best place at reasonable price in Samoa.
Great view! Staff is very friendly and helpful! The food was delicious! Our gratitude to the chef! We've been happy to stay in Le Vasa Resort! Beautiful, comfortable! Relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
Special thanks to owner of the resort - unique and wonderful woman.

We stayed here for a week in January when it was very hot and we were disinclined to do too much activity. We had a waterfront fale and there was nothing nicer than just sitting on the verandah having a cold beer as we watched the crabs scurry around on the rocks underneath us.

This place is not luxurious but it has loads of character, is wonderfully peaceful and the staff are extremely helpful.

As everyone else has reported, the food is excellent. The fruit smoothies at breakfast time were a delight. There are always blackboard specials at night which use the freshest of produce and there is also Happy Hour. This is definitely not the place to come if you are dieting.

We stayed here for a friends wedding with the bridal party. The Staff are all very friendly and were pleasant. The layout of the resort was simple and easy to get around. The rooms vary in size depending on what you require. Basic but clean and comfortable. If you are used to 5 star than this may not be for you, its very traditional with all the basics required including shower, sink and airconditioning.

The pool and bar area are great to chill at and you can go Kayaking at the back of the resort which opens out to the sea (calm waters for about 2ks out). The wedding reception was also held here and was fantastic, perfect ambiance and setting by the beach. More than enough room and the food catering was fantastic.

Mosquito's were not an issue, just watch out for the odd centerpede and Gecko!
