...first of all let me say that the staff at Sa'moana during my stay was fantastic, but I would expect this at almost any hotel in Samoa as the locals are pleasant, friendly, helpful and always smiling. That's a given. ...the resort is nice but certainly not 4 star, especially in light of what else is available in the area.... More

Sa'moana makes you pay in full for your room months in advance and then will change room accommodations on you once you arrive so you have no recourse, such as canceling your reservation and requesting a refund. We reserved the family bungalow and were told when we arrived we had to share the bungalow with a stranger. The 3 of... More

Be prepared for the road trip into the Resort ( long way in and a long way to go anywhere, unlevel and rough ) Staff are Very Good ! Meals are basic and dont change. Tour Guide good, but expensive. Pool is over rated ( photo ) amd pretty basic. Not a pool as you would expect at a resort.... More

In March we planned our July trip to Samoa. We stayed at Salani Surf Camp, Satuiatua Beach Resort, and The Sa' Moana Resort. The first two places went smoothly and were fantastic, the Sa'Moana was a nightmare. We booked their special package for four of us in a beachfront Fale. It was supposed to be just the fours of us,... More

This is an amazing secluded piece of paradise. A simple, laidback boutique beach hotel with good vibes and great friendly local staff. Loads of activities including kayaking' snorkeling, surfing if you're experienced enough and they also have a boat which we took out to see the turtles in the lagoon. There lava rock infinity pool was a great spot for... More

Just got back from a trip with my husband to Sa'Moana Resort. Recommended by a friend and so glad we took their advice. What a place! Total beach front resort with a very laid back atmosphere. A great bar with good music and drinks at a fair price. Food was great, all fresh and local. I loved the coconut Wahoo!... More

We have just returned from the most amazing holiday in this resort, we would highly recommend it to anyone interested in chilled out place to stay and surf. We have visited this place before but can see the improvements in the menu and drinks which have been recently made. The surf was amazing and the guide was awesome, as always!... More

Stayed here recently for 10 days following a trip to New Zealand and we cannot recommend enough! So first of all the location, this is a beautiful beach front resort in an idyllic setting, however, it is fairly remote so if you're looking to explore the island I would recommend renting a car for some exploring. We rented one from... More
