We visited Sinalei Reef Resort in early July 2016. It was a total tropical island experience. The resort was magnificent. We stayed in a garden view room which was one of the cheaper rooms but it was absolutely beautiful, clean and tidy and looked over the golf course, only a short 1 min walk down to the white sandy beach...

In late June we spent 7 nights at the Sinalei. The pool setting would have to be one of the most stunning I have seen. In saying this we did spend most of our time in the sea as it was superbly warm. The staff at the Sinalei are absolutely gorgeous, always smiling, always happy and always willing to help... More

If you are looking for beautiful tropical surroundings, very good food and wonderful staff, look no further. The level of service here is what you expect from a 5 star resort, however the staff are pleasantly relaxed and very friendly. The resort is locally owned and operated, which is a big plus and the staff are obviously proud of where... More

This is a beautiful property located about 30-40 minutes drive from the airport. The grounds are green and lush, with gorgeous local flowers and ferns growing throughout. We stayed in an Ocean View Villa, which had two separate rooms. The master bedroom was spacious and bright - with a view of the water through the trees and other villas. The... More

Partner and I decided to escape the Sydney winter and stayed at an Ocean View Villa/Fale (OVC) at Sinalei Resort for 7 nights! Our villa was huge, had 2 x air conditioners and we had a large deck overlooking the ocean. The location of the resort makes it both great & bad depending on what you are after; great because...

We wanted a tropical mid winter get away - Samoa fitted the bill and and what a fantastic place. The main emphasis for us was a resort to chill out at but also to see the local culture. The staff here are fantastic - so friendly and made us so welcome. We felt like part of the family
