“Maledives on a shoestring”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Sleeping in a chalet over the lagoon was such a beautiful experience that we expected to be unaffordable with our budget. Yet at Lusia's we actually had a chance to fall asleep and wake up to the water slapping against the shore right underneath our bed! That and the lush and beautifully maintained tropical gardens made our stay a magical experience and a great introduction to Savaii. We loved the food, especially breakfast and the great NZ wines, not to mention the beautiful deck, the free use of the kayak and the very friendly & helpful staff. Perfect location to start and finish our cycling trip around Savaii.

Room Tip: Definitely one of the lagoon chalets!

This place is like a hidden paradise! I booked this place blindly on the Internet before I went to Samoa and I couldn't have had a better place to stay at. There are so many reasons why this place is a must stay!! One of them is the people...the people here are beautiful, managed by Jim and the atmosphere that is created there is very lay back but also they are there to provide a very good service to their guests. The girls are absolutely beautiful and are the politest ladies, you will fall in love with these girls. Everyone is full of smiles and you feel very comfortable there...I could live here! The lagoon is beautiful and you can grab a kayak or snorkel around whenever you feel like it. I opted for the fale on the lagoon and woke up to a beautiful sunrise every morning, it was like they sky was on fire!! I got to know one of the boys that worked there, his name is Tui and he is the man! I only stayed for 6 nights but he was like a brother, he looked out for me and he provides a very genuine service to the guests and has an amazing rapport with everyone he serves. Overall this place is 100% one of the best places I have ever stayed! incredibly affordable, amazingly friendly and the food Oh My the food is good!!! You couldn't thank them enough for the service this place provides!!!

We were checking out Lusia's on the high recommendation from a friend. Although we decided to stay at our booked accommodation in the end, our daughter had left her favourite teddy at the restaurant. When we went to see if it was there, it couldn't be found. The owner took our number in Upulo and promised to contact us if it turned up. We left on the ferry with a very tearful 5yr old and little hope of ever seeing mousey again...

The next day we received a phone call from the manager apologising for not finding it and saying that the staff had got our daughter another bear to replace it. Whilst we appreciated the thought 'Mousey' had been with us since No.1 was 5months old, and was quite special so we declined the kind offer with thanks. The manager said he would keep looking as one of the staff had said he thought he'd seen it.

Mousey was eventually found and the manager arranged for him to, not only be brought over on the ferry, but also to meet us in Apia as it was closer to where we were staying, just in time before we had to fly home! Such a wonderful end to the holiday and lovely service from the staff and management at Lusia's. Thank you so much, she would have been devastated to go home with out him.

Talofa Lorna!

I'm so happy to hear that Mousey was reunited with your daughter and am glad we were able to get it to you just in time for your flight, i'm just sorry that she had to go through those couple days of grief!

We hope to see you again the next time you return to Samoa!

Warmest Regards,

Lusia's Lagoon Chalets

We did not stay here, but had lunch here during a tour of Savai'i.

The service was extremely friendly, particularly the man who our driver called "Lepo".

Food was very tasty. The Oka I had there was one of the best I sampled anywhere in Samoa. If the rooms are anything like the restaurant - it's probably worth a look.

There was a terrible storm the day we arrived and we had booked the open fales on the lagoon. Not a good combination!!! Next day we were moved to two very nice and spacious rooms also with a very nice view - and aircondition. And the weather improved :-) We had all our meals at Lusia's restaurant which is very good and also not cheap. The staff was very friendly and helpfull.

We enjoyed 5 nights at Lusia's the week of September 9th, had a great time and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. We had a chalet on the lagoon and loved jumping straight in to swim before breakfast every morning. The room was very comfortable and we brought a mozzie 'plug in' with us from home which we found worthwhile. We loved the food - I had some trepidation about staying & eating at the same place for 5 days but we couldn't have been happier - compliments to Emmelina the chef! There were plenty of local dishes which were fantastic; Poke made with yellow fin tuna, taro chips, local shrimps from Sili etc. Wonderful. The staff at Lusia's are wonderful - very friendly and hospitable with great tips on where to go exploring each day. We also hired a car through Lusia's which was reasonably priced and allowed us to visit beaches and various sights. In summary, a terrific holiday - thanks to all the team at Lusia's!

Room Tip: We loved our room over the water with full bathroom etc.and felt it was reasonable value for money.
