Having only returned from my Samoan holiday by one week, and I can still smell the fresh ocean breeze that surrounded me at Sa'Moana Resort. Upon arriving after a night flight from Sydney, as we pulled into Sa'Moana the sun was actually rising as though it had been waiting to unveil this beautiful place. Located at one of the most southern ends of Upolu stands this gorgeous boutique resort that caters for absolutely anyone! I was there on a romantic getaway but as my stayed progressed, crazed surfers and young families arrived...to which I was none the wiser. With only a few beach front bungalows... all ocean facing, this resort is schmik!! Our bungalow was immaculate and contained all you would find in any other 5 star resort....bar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, wardrobes ect but what topped it was the outdoor lava rock bathroom. The bed and pillows were super comfy too. I big one in my books! The staff were unbelievably friendly and completely sincere... and in every department. Wether it be thorough knowledge of the island for amazing adventure tours, an afternoon cocktail by the pool or just for a little chat, I felt like a movie star throughout my stay. Compared with other pacific island resorts, I found the pricing to be rather reasonable....and we ate and drank A LOT :) And speaking eating, both the lunch and dinner menus were just to die for!!! I wouldn't hesitate in returning to Sa'Moana and am spreading the word!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a small 3.5 star remote, idyllic beach resort located at the end of the long, windy Salamumu beach road (about 6km track off main road). Our simple colorful wooden bungalows are all absolute beach front with their own private outdoor lava rock bathroom, private deck and of course fabulous beach and Pacific Ocean views. We are the perfect location for active families, couples and singles who want to totally switch off from the World for the length of their stay and be "Off The Grid" and see the real Samoa and maybe want something a little different from the standard "out of the brochure" vacation. We have an all-day bar and restaurant with comfortable seating for a sunset cocktail, good music including traditional Samoan tunes and great vibes. All our staff are local so can share their knowledge of the best places to visit, and the stories of the real Samoa. We do a weekly cultural show and a traditional Samoan Fire Dance and Haka display every Thursday - free to our guests. Guests are welcome to surf out front - its intermediate to advanced level and you need to bring your own board. Surf Tours can be arranged with local operators when you are here. There are several within 20/30 minutes of our resort. Car hire is highly recommended so you get to see the best of our beautiful island and discover your own magical parts of it - we can recommend lots for you to do and provide a map and some local advice. Please note we are not near any public transport, shops or other resorts / restaurants - we are literally a tropical island hideaway! If this is what you seek - you won't be disappointed! ... more less
