We had an awesome time at Sinalei. The service was just out of this world. We had a little medical emergency in the middle of the night -- Sose the Hotel Manager and her son drove us to the hospital and checked back on us during our whole stay. Thanks again for your prompt help!!!

Whist we did not stay here, we did lunch here and thought the resort was stunning. The staff were highly professional and the food was very good. There are no children allowed here (teenagers were) and the peaceful atmosphere was highly relaxing. I would recommend this food here.

We spent a wonderful six nights here towards the end of March 2017 for the second week of our delayed honeymoon. From the moment Aio collected us, we felt relaxed. On arrival we were handed beautiful juice cocktails while we checked in and were advised of our special extras. We were immediately transported to a place of pampering. The setting...

Sinalei Resort was as good as ever, the staff are friendly and helpful, the owners are extremely helpful. The Accomodation is comfortable and great views of the lagoon and ocean. The buffet with the suckling pig and fish is something to enjoy and the island night is a great night. The only low spot was there was no painted crayfish...

Talofa lava. Great to get your feedback and thank you for highlighting what you enjoyed most about your experience here. So sorry about the crayfish situation but as explained by your driver to the airport, this is a matter a little out of our hands at times like these, largely because we try to offer what is fresh and caught...

This resort has the most beautiful location on the beach. The accommodation is spread out to give privacy to the guests. Our beach side bungalow was well appointed and had a deck with lounges on it to laze around and look at the ocean. Guests can enjoy sitting by the pool or reclining on the sun lounges at the beach....

Sinalei is owned by a local village Chief and employs local villagers. We really enjoyed the relaxed and informal vibe - this is not a highly-polished American-style resort. It has everything you need and the resort is very accommodating for any special needs such as late check out. We arranged with one of the staff to guide us around the...
