“A great place to relax”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

This was a lovely place to stay, with really friendly and professional staff. The fales’s are closed ones and set back in the gardens but they are really good value for en-suite accommodation. Although it is located by the sea there isn’t really a beach but there are really nice lawns with loungers, hammocks and a swimming pool to make up for it. There is a really nice sea facing open bar and restaurant which serves great food. The owners are really helpful and can offer advice on tours and transport etc. They are also very forward thinking compared with most of the smaller Samoan resorts as they have wifi and card payment facilities

Stayed for almost a week as we were looking for a peaceful break away from our recent earthquakes! The rooms were clean and tidy with everything needed. The friendly service was memorable as was the excellent food served in the restaurant. Hard to find a better place to soak up the warmth and just relax. All good value for money. We'll be back!

Big rooms, nice and clean. Very friendly staff. Very good value for money - definitely a good place to stay coming on or off the ferry. Probably wouldn't stay here more than a few days though. There is no beach and there are more 'resorty' places on Savaii.

We loved our stay at the savaiian hotel! Affordable accommodation ,beautiful food (esp breakfast) ,clean facilities ,but best of all was the service. The staff at the savaiian hotel went out of the way to make sure we were comfortable and that we had all that we needed to make our stay with them one to remember. The staff truly made us feel like we were a part of the family which meant a lot to our family who were in Savaii for the first time.

Thank you so much Poi and staff for truly blessing us with your hospitality

SEE YOU NEXT TIME MUCH LOVE KROUSE FAMILY

I stayed at the Savaiian Hotel for about 5 weeks- it was a really great experience. All of the staff were wonderful, and really went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were clean and very comfortable, the grounds are beautiful, every meal was amazing - it really was a nice place to stay and a great experience. Overall a very relaxing and enoyable experience - I would definetly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling to Savai'i! ...or thinking of travelling to Samoa : )

I travelled to Samoa with my fiance and mother in February 2010 (the oldest option for date of stay was July 2010, so ignore that). We stayed at the Savaiian Hotel, in one of the air conditioned rooms, for one week and were extremely impressed by the service and accomodation. We would have stayed longer if we hadn't pre-booked to spend our final week at Aggie Grey's Lagoon Resort & Spa. A huge thank you to owners Poi and Nola who went right out of their way to really make us feel welcome! Poi took us on personal tours around the island and showed my fiance how to prepare his first umu for one of our dinners. The food from the restaurant was a-ma-zing! Poi really catered to our desire for real Samoan food too. We absolutely loved the fale with hammocks, the cayaking and the little library of books to read. Having the car hire place next door was very handy. While the vehicle options were limited, the lady was very nice and the rental fee reasonable. Despite the fact that it rained for most of our time there, we still had a blast. We would definitely go back to the Savaiian for another great relaxing holiday.

I had a week stay on Savai'i on the way between New Zealand and the US and my 5 nights at The Savaiian Hotel were perfect. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the breakfast simple and delicious and was included, my room was clean and quiet and the property was well manicured. It was a wonderful place to relax by the pool or enjoy beers in the open air bar. I hired snorkel gear and kayaked out to the reef for some of the best snorkeling on the island. There was one evening when the restaurant was closed for a private event and the owners arranged for a taxi to take me and two other guests to a very nice restaurant for dinner in town and they even arranged for us to be picked up afterwards. I can't write enough about the fantastic staff - unlike some of the other accommodations on the island - ALL of the staff at The Savaiian Hotel made me feel welcome, relaxed and safe.

Room Tip: No rooms had better views than any others.
