Our party of 45 visited 8 July as part of our birthday and family celebrations for Lorraine, Principal of Vaiala Beach School, Vailima, Apia. Stunning layout of chairs, tables covered with fresh linen, music, beautiful sand, sea, and scenery, wonderful friendly service, and the most amazing feast - oka, whe, imu, ula sami, fonga, talo, palusami - fabulous!! Blessings to you Sala & Nika, your families and your friends as you make a strong recovery and continue to develop.

Lupes are still rebuilding after the tsnuami and only have 3 fales at present.
Right on the beach the fales are enclosed - actually have elevated beds and ensuite toilet. A little verandah with table and chairs adds extra comfort.
Mosquito net and linen is provided.
The shower arrangement is an outside enclosure.
100 Tala per night - was very attractive to us.

Walk next door to Coconuts Resort for a meal if you wish or next door but one to Sinalei Resort.
Lupes Bar is especially popular at night with guests from both resorts visiting for their cheaper food & drinks.
Especially popular with younger people.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
The Owner is very generous and returned us to town (as he was actually going himself) for cheaper than a taxi.
We will certainly be going back again.

We stayed at Coconuts which is just next door to Lupes.

Service was friendly, and the food not only well priced (especially compared to the resort menu prices), but very tasty with generous portions. Quite a diverse menu for such a small place.

There are some covered tables and seats inside near the pool table (that the locals seem to come for), and more seating out on the deck area, with a nice view of the beach.

Local beer is cheap, too.

They even do takeaways.

Highly recommended, they make a great change if you get tired of resort restaurant fare (and prices).

We were very pleased to discover Lupes, having previously eaten at Coconuts and found it a bit expensive for my budget.
A typical open fale restaurant on the beach with affordable prices and predicatable menu,
I was very pleased to discover the Fish and chips I ordered was the freshest Masi masi I had eaten on my travels around Samoa and at 15 tala, one of the cheapest.
Enjoyed with a cold Vailima at 5tala, why go past- drive down the same road as coconuts and veer to the left at coconuts entrance, good place to aim for lunch if your exploring down that way

Lupes is between Sinalie and Coconuts We were staying at Sinalie which had great food and service, but we always like to try, local bars and food when we can.lupes has a great view , million dollar view with good prices for drinks and food. We had drinks there twice and lunch once. Owners and staff are good people and friendly and good service.a couple we met who were staying at coconuts eat all their meals out of Coconuts they were that appalled by the food and drink served there, they eat several time at lupes .

good food, good drinks, good View and friendly people.
