Loved our one nights stay at Le Valasi's. Wished we could have stayed longer. Maria and Ross are fantastic hosts. Make you feel really at home. Fales are clean and tidy as are all facilities. Snorkling in the marine reserve is excellent, particularly the clams which are huge, and amazing to view. Lots of fish as well. Food was brilliant and a big thank you to Mireama for her fantastic service, candlelight dinner the works. The central fale is still under reconstruction after major damage from the cyclone but you can imagine how fantastic it will look once finished. The personal fales are nice and cool and we had our best nights sleep of all our time in Samoa. If you want a real Samoan experience away from the large resorts this is the place for you. Wished we could have stayed longer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Beach fale accommodation for a traditional Samoan style holiday. Le Valasi’s Beach Fales is run by Ross & Maria Jones who have made Samoa their home since moving over from Australia. Ross & Maria offer Beach Fale accommodation, which in our case is really a palagi house with a Samoan roof. It is fitted with an innersprung bed, table & chairs to be private clean and comfortable. All hotel linen is used PLUS towels are supplied. Separate toilet & shower areas nearby. Dining room, bar, and restaurant in the main fale overlooking Lefaga Bay. The Main Fale is a 60 year old traditional fale built without nails, only using Samoan rope to lash all the ribs, posts & beams together. Ross & Maria have repaired the building to its original glamour since the Cyclone in December 2012. It is one of the few remaining original Samoan houses left in Samoa as more & more families are changing to the conventional Palagi house. Large school groups can be accommodated using the big fale as a sleeping area. Le Valasi’s Beach Fales is located 35km south west of Apia in the heart of Savaia – Lefaga, only half an hour from the airport andaccessible by public transport or taxi service. Ross & Maria can arrange transfer from airport at a small charge. ... more less
