Had 4 nights here with my partner in a Beach front Villa. Best views, relaxed atmosphere and amazing staff that cater to your every need & treat you like family. The reviews about the owners Chris & Wendy on here are spot on- they are wonderful hosts and really went the extra mile for us organizing a rental car & recommending the best things to see & do. Very modern clean & comfy rooms. Island night was also a higher as were the staff who greeted you by name at every meal. Only wish we had more time at this resort- it is the best place I've ever stayed - 10+!

We stayed here for a week and we arrived with high expectations after reading all the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. In fact this was why we booked this place and we were not disappointed! It really is a very quiet boutique style resort perfect for some much needed R & R although you can be as active as you want if you hire a car. We found plenty to do with walks to nearby beaches, and an amazing swimming hole, blow holes, lots of kayaking, and much lazing in and around the gorgeous infinity pool. I would agree with others who say probably not the best snorkeling to be had right here.
We had one of the 2 beachfront villas (so worth the extra cost) and fortunately we were in no. 8 which had a completely unobstructed view over the little bay and out to the reef. These villas and the honeymoon villa are set further apart from the the other villas which are set around the pool. Apart from the spacious, stylish interior the huge balcony was a bonus with it's chairs, table, huge hammock and lily pad double lounger. Because the villa is so private you can go to sleep with the doors open over the balcony, curtains wafting in the breeze, listening to the waves crashing on the reef. Bliss. We never once used the air-conditioning. The lighting in the villa although stylish and romantic was virtually impossible to read by though. Maybe just a couple of bright lamps would do the trick.
The meals were never a disappointment and the staff were delightful and very attentive. One little gripe was that we appeared to have to buy water at meal times when in fact the tap water is perfectly ok to drink. The restaurant is very picturesque and set practically over the water. The Fia Fia night was really entertaining and showed off the many talents of the people who work at Seabreeze.
We would love to return again some day.

Thank you for your wonderful appraisal of Seabreeze, we will make sure we pass your compliments on to our lovely staff at the next staff meeting.

We understand your concerns for reading in the villas, being the eternal romantics we overlooked the need for extra lighting but are on a buying trip in December & this is definitely on the list.

With regards to the drinking water, this is always a difficult one as our water supply comes directly from the waterfall & Chris & I have always drunk the water out of the tap. However we cannot guarantee that the water is pure as it has never been tested. We are all governed by Industry guideline, which dictates that we cannot call the water safe & we have even had to add filters to our ice making machines to ensure a clean supply of ice. However guests are always welcome to ask for ice tap water in the restaurant or at either of the bars, there is of course no charge for tap water, it just needs to be requested and is at your own risk.
For those guests who prefer to play it safe, bottled spring water is available. As you will be aware we also place bottled water FOC in your villa for your enjoyment & inconsideration of our guests well being.

We truly hope you do return, Seabreeze is a magical place & we are thrilled to have shared our special piece of Paradise with you 

Stayed for 7 nights (1 in Ocean View and 6 night in Ocean Front). Thoroughly enjoyable experience, good food, great staff, beautiful location, top facilities, charming locals. Met some great travellers and the best part - no kids!

Room Tip: Pay the extra money for Ocean Front, others have little privacy.

We stayed at Seabreeze for 5 nights. The accommodation was clean, fresh and very commfortable. The food at the restaurant was by far the best quality we experienced during our stay in Samoa and the service was great. The staff were very friendly and the hosts were amazing. On our second day at the resort Chris went over all the attractions and the different ways to get around the island. Following this we booked a 1 day tour of the island, hosted by 2 Seabreeze staff which was fantastic. We were able to customise the tour to our needs and picked our stops as we went along. The tour guides were locals and were able to give us a great insight into the Samoan way of life. A must is taking a walk along the beach to nearby stunning Vavau Beach, the scenery was amazing and we had the beach to ourselves for the majority of the day.
The fiafia night (Samoan night) was great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the yummy food.
Our only initial concern when we booked was that the resort seemed isolated. This was however not an issue as there was plenty of places to visit nearby. We also found that the transfers to and from the resort were a great way to see parts of the island. The pool area was lovely and the use of the snorkelling gear and kayaks was a bonus. Overall we thoroughly recommend Seabreeze and will definitely be back. We were very sad to leave and saying goodbye to the staff was like saying goodbye to family.

Seabreeze - relaxing and a pleasure to be at, the rooms are wonderful and comfortable and beautifully furnished, the whole setup is easy to get around. The pool is handy to everyone and is a great design with the in pool bar and views of the bay. The restaurant serves wonderful food and is right over the water, the staff are friendly, happy and great to be around. The cultural night on a Friday night is great and definitely worth being there for, not only for the dancing and singing but the great feast. Would definitely try and go again. If you wish to trip around while there a rental car is a must.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms quite dark

Everything you need is contained within the resort to the point that you never have to leave if you don't want to,Excellent restaurant, pool, superb and happy staff, comfortable but dark rooms if you are in the ocean view ones. The beach is adequate but not great and this is where you will probably want to leave the resort and find the truly fantastic white sand beaches of Samoa. Very good restaurant with comprehensive menu and all staff make stay very worthwhile, this wonderfully seems to be the norm in any Samoan resort.It is a fair distance from the airport 1.5 hours and while you can walk over the hill to some great beaches you may well find a rental car is a necessity if staying for any length of time.

Room Tip: There are two "beach' view villas,try for number 9 not 8 as the palms that have grown up in...

Thank you for your wonderful comments regarding Seabreeze. It is our aim is to make every guests stay a memorable one.
We'd also like to thank you for your comment regarding the view from Beachfront 8 as we believe it is always important to listen to guest’s feedback. As you will be aware there are unobstructed views from the bedroom & bathroom but in the interest of giving the villas privacy in their intimate courtyard with outside shower we planted some coconut palms. We were actually so worried about the privacy of villa 9 that we have planted coconut palms in front of that courtyard also; they are just very young & not established yet.
But we have just re-looked closely at this & understand your concerns & have taken the centre palm out so the courtyard now has Ocean views & but still has a degree of privacy from the beach.
We are normally in tune with our guests needs & wish we could have resolved this while you were in house, but thank you for bringing this to our attention. We hope that you will one day return, we all love to see returning guests, most say it feels like they have never left & Paradise is always here for your return

We stayed here for 5 nights, following a stay at Litia Sini Beach resort (also a lovely place, but a very different type of accomodation). Our first feeling when we got there was ahhhh- we've found paradise.
We stayed in room 3, and our friends in room 4. These were both ocean view rooms, and I totally recommend these partciular two - close to entrance (but not too close) great view of the water. The two villas and honeymoon suite would have better views of course.
Our rooms were lovely - and we had a lovely hot water shower with one of the greatest water pressures I've seen in a hotel shower! I would recommend putting the bath mat on the dividing section between the bedroom and bathroom - the shower design does mean the water gets out onto the main floor.
Loved the hammock outside on the deck, but could have done with foot stools for the seats out there (there is one inside that we borrowed).
We spent a day around the pool, relaxing in the Coast pod thingees, and were joined by the two cats (Tiger and Bobby). Also went kayaking in the afternoon.
It got a bit windy / rainy after that - but we had heaps of space on our deck to relax. We also hired a car a couple of days. Chris was a huge help there - organising the car, but also gave us an itinerrary for a self drive day out, including prices for entry. We found that when we drive around the other side of the island (FYI - Lalomanu Beach is 20 min away, the airport / Apia about 1 1/2 hours), the weather was beautiful. We drove to Te Sua trench one day (swim in the swimming hole, and explore the lava field - loved it!!), and on the second day, did Apia, and the trench snorkelling area nearby. Best snorkelling ever!! The south side was destroyed by the tsunami (and is growing back), but it is great to see on the north side, what it once was like, and hopefully will be again.
We ate at the restaurant each night, and for breakfast. Breakfasts can be of a variable size (the pancakes are probably the smallest item on the menu, but yum). Dinner and lunch menus are the same, and there's always and interesting and yummy special.
Totally recommend this place!
