We came here not knowing what to expect and were very pleasantly surprised. Only 9 fales and they are quite new and very well designed. Perhaps they need to be made a little more Polynesian but that wouldn't be hard to do. Clean and set...More

Hey guys Thanks for the lengthy and honest review of your stay at Sa'Moana and going into so much detail about Samoa and our resort. We are a 3.5 star hotel and not 5 star as you rightly pointed out- but at the same time...More

I went with a friend back in 1999, which is a long time ago. I think the resort was relatively new back then. Two guys were running the place, Paul and someone else, the manager. Both are great Aussie guys. Very friendly, jovial and accommodating....More

Thanks for your review on a resort that you stayed at in 1999 - which is 17 years ago. Very confusing as to why you thought this is relevant to the existing resort, especially your comments re food 'cold salads and hams Aussie style'. Really?...More

There’s no question there is damage on this coast of the island but there’s some pockets of rejuvenating coral for sure. Make sure you go to the giant clam colony too if you love snorkelling.
