We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed everything except the unseasonal rain. The settings are lovely,and the staff are very friendly and helpful. You can relax and do nothing, or swim, paddleboard, kayak, and snorkel. The units were clean and spacious with privacy.

Our holiday at Sinalei Reef Resort ticked every box for us. A perfect setting on the southern coast of Upolu, Samoa, magnificent gardens, staff who clearly love what they are doing and no children under 12. On day 1, we were collected in Apia by two of the resort's staff in the Sinalei mini bus and were immediately captivated by... More

What a gorgeous destination. Can not fault this resort, so will list all the great things from beginning to end. Waiting for us at the airport was a lovely man with a cold bottle of water and a air conditioned shuttle, he not only drove us but acted as guide. The garden surrounds were beautifully manicured, everything you would imagine... More

We were cycle touring around Samoa and were recommended to stop in and check this place out and enjoy a cold drink. We were hot and sweaty but that didn't put off the staff.

Have stayed here a number of times in the last few years. From the moment you drive through the entrance you feel relaxed. A great assortment of room types which we have tried all.
