My friend and I travelled to Samoa (Upolo) for a relaxing beach getaway and to spend time and waterfalls and To Sua Trench. We arrived to our hotel in Apia (where we originally planned to stay our whole trip) then quickly realised how far away the nice beaches were. We checked out and headed to lalomanu to find any accommodation available. Anita's had availability luckily so we booked a night there but I soon realised I have forgotten my passport and all my money at the hotel in Apia. Tautala, the owner, very kindly organised her sister to drive it to me all the way from Apia! She was so lovely and trustworthy- we ended up staying our whole trip at Anita's in the open fales right by the water.
The breakfast and dinner was amazing!! And there was always so much food we never went hungry. All the staff there was so kind and lovely to be around and the ocean was so clear, it was stunning!
To Sua Trench was only a 20 minute drive away so we ended up spending two days there as it was so close and cheap to get to. The area was exactly what we were hoping for, relaxing and not very touristy!
Tautala was so amazing, she drove us to Togitoggiga Waterfalls, into Apia and back home as we didn't have a rental car.
Being two girls sleeping in open beach fales I was very hesitant at first for the safety of our belongings and us! But after the first night we realised we had nothing to worry about. Anita's was by far the highlight of our trip. We now think of Tautala and all the staff at Anita's as our Samoan family!
When I go back to Samoa with my boyfriend we will be driving straight to Anita's!
