Va-I-Moana is like walking into a very pleasant dream. It's a tranquil spot protected from the relentless SE trade winds....a few acres of well kept lawns and and palms that sweep gently down to a tiny private beach and the georgeous expanse of the Asau Harbour.
This is a genuine Samoan resort where the hospitality is as good as the beautiful views. My husband and I thought that Va-I-Moana was top of the list for service and value . Breakfast and dinner were included in the low tarrif and we had a choice of open fales on the beach or the enclosed/lockable fales up the grassy slope. They have one 'over water' fale too, the 'honeymoon suite', which we were generously bumped up to ( we were on our honeymoon!) The fales are very clean and delightfully basic, with ammenities block nearby. The ladies shower room is stunning with no roof and a high ,hand made rock wall and a lovely bamboo rain shower... large mirror and bunches of tropical leaves and flowers.
The main building has a beautiful entrance and reception area where Sale and Rosie (owners) have created a very welcoming space. Inside is the bar (well stocked) and indoor/outdoor restaurant overlooking the property and harbour. A great lunch menu is available too. We loved Va-I-Moana because it is not too 'westernised' and is a good base for daytripping in Savaii...and the food was fabulous...and the staff are friendly and caring. It is the only fale we stayed at where they provide towels and ask about dietary needs. It is so new that it is not in the travel brochures yet, you have to seek them out . We only found it because of word of mouth, even many locals haven't heard about it yet. There were families, couples and singles and the weather was magic. Love, love, love it!
