I can't rate the place highly enough. You know when your very overdue a holiday, well this is the place to come. The vista from Senalei is more beautiful than the pictures on the Internet. It is just what you think a Pacific Island should be. We had a beachfront room with the balcony overlooking the beach, so relaxing going...

When my darling asked me to accompany him to Samoa and to Sinalei Reef Resort, I could not imagine what to expect. Fortunately I agreed. And then - after a long trip from Switzerland (about 36 hours) - I arrived in paradise ! And I will do this very long journey once again! The stay of two and a half...

Loved our stay at Sinalei!! Beautiful white sandy beach, restaurant is situated on the jetty so perfect spot for sunsets. Food was delish. Staff were amazing, knew our names by the second day. Pool was lush! Bathrooms were very cool with glass roofs. Would highly recommend this place.

We stayed here for a friends "special" birthday in October with a group including extended family members and friends. Although we were only here for a short stay, the resort staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and professional. The villas, gardens and public areas are all beautifully kept by staff who seem to genuinely enjoy their work. The...

A beautiful location and the place to get away from the rat race. Vila's are lovey set amongst tropical vegetation. Lovely pool area, restaurants and beach. Nothing better than having a massage in a Vila looking out to the sandy beach and pristine blue/green water with the sea breeze gently blowing in. Staff at Sinalei are amazing, nothing is too...

After 5 days of exceptional service, it would be easy to become complacent about the experience at Sinalei. It was, however, absolute bliss. We spent 5 nights there, staying in a garden room. The facilities were excellent and extremely comfortable. The food at the restaurant was divine – I especially liked the tuna niçoise salad! The pool and the private...

Talofa lava and greetings. Thanks so much for your detailed review and for taking the time to highlight what stood out for you. The bug problem and the rapidly growing vegetation (hence your blocked view) are works in progress to keep under control.
