“Savaii Magic”
Reviewed July 7, 2008

We have just returned from 12 magic days at Savaii Lagoon. 9 of us stayed in 3 bungalows on the beach. We were extremely well looked after by the family running the resort and enjoyed interacting with them. Andi ,Fafoga and staff could not have been more hospitable. We had a downs man with us and the staff made a real fuss of him which made his holiday very special. The lagoon and beach is the best on the island with amaizing snorkling and swimming.On our last night the staff and family put on a concert for us which was great fun and we tried to contribute with a few of our songs but could not match their natural talent.We will definitely be back!!

The drive from the wharf took an hour and cost $80 tala, later we found out it should've been $60. Its a killer jouney if you've just driven from Apia, then the ferry, then another hour by car.

If you need anything (like Tala or packet food) you need to pick it up before you get to the resort or you have to drive an hour back to the main shops.

We attended a wedding held at the next door Le Lagoto resort & stayed at Savaii Lagoon because we were travelling as a family and Savaii Lagoon had a kitchenette which was invaluable (emergency jam sandwiches between the ceremony & dinner)

NZ Cereals were corn flakes & weetbix. For daily fruit we got coconut, pawpaw, bobby banana's & sometimes pineapple, along with a loaf of bread. Condiments were jam, marmalade, peanut butter & butter.

We stayed for 5 days. The beach is quite small, but the snorkelling great. Our kids got a bit bored. I think if we were to do it again we would spend a couple of nights at Le Lagoto (as they have a pool and the restaurant serves great food -we ate there every night anyway) and would've arranged a hire car for a couple of days in advance. We couldn't get one once we arrived.

Recommend taking juice sachets unless your ok with water or fizzy and snack food as the dairy only sells donuts. We brought 3 packets of biscuits which were all stale.

I would stay there again but with a car to explore the rest of the island.

  • Liked — Picturesque Beach, Close to the wedding venue (Le Lagoto), Snorkelling
  • Disliked — Leaky toilet, roosters crowing at 5am

We stayed at this place for 3 days, had an unpleasant stay due to the resort service and plus the weather wasn't helping. We spent most of our time out of our room as we had no chance of changing hotels as our trip was prepaid. The beach was great so we did have something positive in our stay.

This resort was absolutely the highlight of our trip. The owners are just gorgeous and my husband and I had many long and interesting chats with them. We came to Samoa on our honeymoon and Savaii Lagoon Resort was the pinnacle of our exerience.
The lagoon is stunningly beautiful and warm. I spent hours and hours snorkelling and marvelling at the plethora of sea-life living there.
The rooms are spotless and charming, with lovely lagoon views.
If you're looking to self-cater there's a kitchen in the bungalow, or you can just take a leisurely stroll down the beach to Le Lagoto and dine at their restaurant.
We had a tour organised for us by the concierge at Le Lagoto and it was fabulous. I highly recommend it.
The best part of the accommodation is that you can lay on the beach for hours in the shade of their mini-fales and watch the crabs battle it out for supremacy, or read to your heart's content.
I can't recommend this place more highly and I've already told every single friend and family member to go and stay there.

  • Liked — The lagoon
  • Disliked — The curtains in the bedroom blow inwards when it's windy and everyone can see in.

We just had a wonderful 5 nights at the Savaii Lagoon resort. The accomodation was spotless & well equipped, the hospitality & service were friendly & efficient, the manager & staff extremely helpful. The location is awesome with a warm, safe beach & fish & coral for snorkelling right outside your door. The free use of kayaks, dingy & petanque was great. The location also combines the freedom to supplement your self catering by using the facilities at the resort a few steps away - a great bar & restaurant serving lunch & dinner plus a massage/
beauty treatments. We really recommend this resort.

Stayed for 5 nights in Lagoon Resort and would highly recommend. Location is nice and secluded and great for snorkelling. Staff & management are incredibly helpful and couldn't do enough for us to make sure that we got to relax and unwind. Rooms were spacious for the two of us and are cleaned daily with beautifully scented flowers left each day.
Highly recommended!!

We selected Savaii Lagoon Resort based on Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor recommendations. We were travelling with our two children (5y and 8y)
The Fales were clean and tidy. The couple managing the complex were fantastic, very helpful. A Surf ski, kids boogy board and a dingy was available for guest use. We also rented a car for a day arranged by the office.

Breakfast was delivered each morning - Fresh bread and fruit (butter and spreads). The fales are all on the beach, all the windows are louvres have insect screens so although it was hot, getting the sea breeze and have the fan on was sufficient.

We stayed in Fale 4 but all appeared to be the similar. The water here was UV treated so fine to drink. There is a shop almost right across the road and La Lagoto resort is next door which has a great restaurant.

  • Liked — Clean, Good for family use. Pretty Good Value - Great location - Several couples also were there.
  • Disliked — Kitchen is small, small fridage (These are currently being replaced - Fale 1 has new large fridge)
