An unbelievable experience, the food, the location, the whole package, was unsure of what to expect before we arrived, simply put WOW, we could not have asked for a more complete experience, loved it and we will be back.

When my darling asked me to accompany him to Samoa and to Sinalei Reef Resort, I could not imagine what to expect. Fortunately I agreed.

A beautiful location and the place to get away from the rat race. Vila's are lovey set amongst tropical vegetation. Lovely pool area, restaurants and beach.

After 5 days of exceptional service, it would be easy to become complacent about the experience at Sinalei. It was, however, absolute bliss. We spent 5 nights there, staying in a garden room. The facilities were excellent and extremely comfortable. The food at the restaurant was divine – I especially liked the tuna niçoise salad! The pool and the private... More
