My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Incredibly beautiful scenery! Amazing food, seriously the restaurant is better than many Sydney restaurants. No kids!! Staff are friendly and helpful. They can organise a tour around the island which is really worth doing. Unfortunately now we have a baby it'll be a while before we can return.

We just stayed for five nights and were pretty blown away. The staff here were so friendly and eager to help I was initially dubious, and I was thinking cynically 'are they looking for a tip'? Nobody could be this welcoming, friendly and genuine could they? Turns out they were. What does that say about modern western life? The Fale... More

A great place to get away from it all. Not a lot to do, but thats not a criticism as it's a 'get away' destination. Rooms are very good and well sized and service is excellent - they even made a special effort for a birthday and anniversary celebration while we were there. Much appreciated and enjoyed - special thanks... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in August to escape a wet, dreary winter in NZ. We originally booked a Traditional Fale but due to a couple of housekeeping oversights were rewarded with an unsolicited complimentary upgrade to an Ocean View Room. We had an absolutely fabulous time in this gorgeous resort even though we too . experienced unseasonal rain.... More

We saved the best til last with Sinalei. Our last two and a half days were spent here after a week touring about Upolu and Savaii in delightful but somewhat simpler accommodation. After a week of hearing roosters at all hours and dragging sand inadvertently into our rooms, we were ready for the luxury of Sinalei and it didn't disappoint.... More

Perfection would pretty much sum up our stay at Sinalei. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and almost as part of a Sinalei family. From arriving at the airport their attention to detail surpassed most, a friendly smile, our cases whisked away into the van and a very much appreciated bottle of cooled water... More

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.

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.
