Reviewed 31 August 2014

After a pleasant but lengthy drive from the airport, Seabreeze resort offers you an environment where you can unwind immediately. Whether you're staying poolside or on the sea, the sturdy hammocks that each villa is equipped with will undoubtedly send you to sleep in conjunction with the sweet ocean breeze.
The rooms, although without TV, is very well presented. Both the bed and the sofa are super comfortable. The bathroom has a natural islander feel.
My only negative point to highlight was with the decorative hibiscus flower arrangement in the room. Looks great but it seemed to be the source of quite a few ants we found in the room.

The resort is beautifully located in a quite bay & there are many natural sights close by that Chris will point out to you on a map, and explain how much you should expect to pay in visiting each of these points of interest. It's a also great kayak around the Seabreeze bay and down the coast. Alternatively, feel free to do nothing. It's the ideal place & location for it.

After visiting the seabreeze my wife and I were heading out to Savaii & on checking out I'd stupidly enough left my credit card at reception. The effort that the Seabreeze staff made in getting my card back to me was most commendable. Well played guys!!
Thank you Seabreeze

We had the pleasure of meeting Chris and staying at Seabreeze Resort in April this year. 4 months later and I am still dreaming of the cocktails in the bar pool and the endless array of meals on offer in the beautifully located restaurant that sits out over the water.

The staff could not have been friendlier, and the other guests were also lovely - everyone saying hello as they wandered around or starting up a conversation by the pool bar. Our little cabin had views out over the pool and beyond to the ocean, and the addition of the hammock on the verandah was perfect to take a break from the sun or the afternoon rainstorm that usually passed as quickly as it arrived. The bubbles and fruit plate on arrival was a nice touch too.

Samoa was a gem and from Seabreeze you can see all the amazing sites and hang out at a different beach every day. The water was warm and clear like few other places we have ever seen and snorkelling straight off the beach was possible in most places we stopped. Would highly recommend you rent your own vehicle to have the freedom to go exploring around the island.

Our visit was far too short at just 4 nights, but we have no doubt we will be back at Seabreeze again one day. Thanks to Chris and his team for a magical holiday.

Room Tip: If you can stretch the budget, take the honeymoon suite!

My husband & I recently had a short stay at Seabreeze Resort in Samoa. It is the most beautiful location and amazingly friendly staff, after only a few days we felt part of this beautiful family headed by the owners Wendy & Chris. We can't wait to get back there and this time we will be staying longer. We have travelled all over the world and this would be the friendliest place that we have ever stayed. also the food is of the highest quality & value with an award winning chef and crew to serve you incredible dishes. We cant speak highly enough of this Resort.

Unfortunately we didn't stay at this resort, but we ate in the restaurant frequently during our stay. The setting of the restaurant is fantastic, and the staff were absolutely wonderful. We felt very welcomed (they remembered us each time and welcomed us back) and the food was absolutely sublime. Wish we had stayed here.

Just back from 10 nights at Seabreeze and missing the place already. The resort is small enough to get to know staff like family and other people staying there as friends if thats what you want. Or you can just stick to yourselves and enjoy the service, activities and views on offer. We had a beaut ocean view room right in the middle of the resort which we found to be a lot quieter than we expected due to the no children policy and size of the resort. The room itself was very modern and kept immaculate by the great staff. My wife spent her time relaxing by the pool when the weather allowed and when it was bad we just lazed around the room or got in the car and enjoyed the rest of Samoa. Nothing was to much trouble for the Owners Wendy and Chris along with their staff. I went snorkelling a lot around the bay which is starting to recover from the Cyclone and has an amazing variety of marine life within it. There was more to see than at the Palolo marine reserve on the other side of the island and it was just 50m off the beach. If you are a confident swimmer this is a must, but talk to Chris first as there are strong currents in areas and all conditions need to be considered. If snorkelling is not for you they have kayaks with glass bottoms which are free to use. Again Chris needs to give you a safety talk before you venture out. If eating good food is something you desire the chef Sili here is one of the best and on par with most you will discover in other more westernised countries. I even put on a couple of kilos which is a rare happening. There is a breeze most of the time but much welcomed in the heat. We had a great stay and would return tomorrow if we could. Fa'afetai (thankyou) to all the staff.

Recently spent 9 nights at this brilliant resort. Even though we arrived at 2am due to flight delays we were greeted by Dora & taken to our fale with a fresh fruit platter & sandwiches waiting. The service & staff at this resort is without exception, nothing is too much trouble. Food is fabulous with a great selection to choose from, one of the best resort restaurants my husband & I have ever been to. Rooms are spacious & well equipped, we had a great view of the reef & the pool. Because of the limited number of guests accommodated at any one time the resort is very private & relaxing. We are keen snorkelers & it is such a shame the damage that has been done to the reef by the 2009 tsunami, however there is regrowth evident which is good. Don't be put off by this, if you snorkel out to the left to the island where the fruit bats roost you will still view good hard corals & fish. We would strongly suggest that you hire a car for a couple of days (rates are reasonable), talk to Chris who will advise you of some great places to visit,one of which is the short boat ride out to Namua Island, the snorkeling is good even viewing sea turtles & numerous reef fish. Another suggestion is to take the full day trip which will take you to many great locations (special thanks to Matt out guide, story teller extraordinaire).

We would like to thank Chris, Wendy & Staff for making our holiday memorable, we will certainly return to this peaceful, beautiful country of Samoa

The Seabreeze Resort is a fantastic place to stay. We were met at the airport and right away made to feel very welcome. We were greeted with a Samoan Lei and a cold bottle of water. It was 10pm and the drive to the Seabreeze Resort took an hour and a half, only because the speed limit is 55 km/hr. But it didn’t feel that long. Our driver chatted the whole way telling us such interesting stories and information about Samoa and their culture. We arrived at the Seabreeze at 11.30pm and Chris, the owner, was there to personally greet us. He ushered us to our lovely room and there was a plate of fresh fruit and two huge sandwiches waiting for us.
The resort is set in an idyllic little bay and all rooms have a sea view. They have hammocks on the decks too. There are only 11 rooms. The infinity pool and the pretty gardens are lovely, overlooking the stunning bay. This is a quiet boutique resort that treats you like family from the moment you arrive. Chris and his wonderful staff were extremely friendly, very hard working and they take a lot of pride in their work. They are very professional and caring. We also very much enjoyed talking with Kevin who was the relief manager while Chris was away for a few days.
The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. You choose a fruit juice and tea or coffee and are given a lovely fresh fruit platter. You also choose one item each off the menu. Everything from: muesli, bacon and eggs, scrambled eggs, French toast or pancakes. The French toast was my favourite. The view overlooking the bay at breakfast is just stunning.
On Friday night at 5pm the conch shell sounds and the Fia Fia night begins. This is an excellent evening consisting of: a cultural display, a 3 course Samoan meal, dancing, singing, fire dancing and all this until 10pm. This is a great way to get to know the other guests too. Lots of fun and a lot of work and thought goes into it, even down to decorating the restaurant.
The sea is warm and very clear. We had fun snorkeling, although not much to see as the tsunami has destroyed what was there. The glass bottom kayaks were fun to paddle around to the next little bays.
I recommend walking about 25 minutes along the beach. You need to go up the driveway, just past the container and you will see a track going through the grass down to the next bay. Walk along the beach and off onto another track over the outcrop of rocks to the next bay. Then walk on to the end of the beach where you will come to the beautiful Vavau Lagoon. A lovely spot for a swim. You can either walk back the way you came or go up the hill road were you will be charged 5 Tala each at the end of the road. You can if you wish, then walk along the road for another 15 minutes to the next sightseeing stop, The To Sua trench. This will cost 15 Tala each.
I would highly recommend two things. First do the day tour around Upolu island organised by Chris, with one of the Seabreeze staff. We visited all the sights and even asked to see Coconuts Beach Club resort. You can tailor make the tour to suit what you want to see. The driver is very informative. We saw 3 waterfalls, Louis Stevenson’s house and the Apia markets. We had lunch at a lovely Bistro in Apia before snorkeling at the Deep Marine Reserve. (4 Tala each. Extra if you need to hire snorkeling gear) and then swam at the Pilau cave pool. We even were taken to a little supermarket to buy supplies.
Secondly hire a car. The guided tour gave us a good idea of our way around and even though it looks simple on the map, the roads are poorly sign posted. Hiring a car is a must, if you want to see the rest of Samoa. I highly recommend driving to Lanomanu beach about 20 minutes further on from the Seabreeze and not covered by the tour. This spot is like paradise, with stunning crystal clear water and a white sandy beach. We hired a fale for 30 Tala for the whole day. There were flushing toilets and a shower across the road to use as part of this cost. The other place I highly recommend to go to is Salamumu Beach, where the snorkeling is just as good, if not better than the Deep Sea Marine Reserve. You will see this on the map that you can ask Chris for. It is about a 50 minute drive going west. Look out for the black x sign on the road (It is the Surf X Sign) and drive about 8 km down a white sandy road to the coast. You will be charged 10 Tala half way along the road. In Samoa all access to beaches are managed by the villages and so what you pay helps them maintain the beach and roads. At the end of the road is the Sa’Moana Resort. (Bright orange fales). Here we ate at the restaurant for lunch overlooking the stunning beach, swam in the lava rock infinity pool and snorkeled off the beach. There were lots of coloured fish to be seen just 2 metres off the beach in front of the restaurant. Not recommended at high tide though. If possible take your own snorkeling gear to Samoa. We hired a car for 3 days. Chris organised this for us. I would not recommend driving at night as there are so many animals like pigs, dogs, and chooks that just run out onto the road and they would be very hard to see at night. Also the roads are full of pot-holes.
As we were staying for 9 nights at the Seabreeze we were there for another Fia Fia night. However instead of attending the night again we were given the option of eating at another resort or to pre-order off the ordinary menu and the staff would set up a candle lit table just for us by the side of the pool. Of course we chose the second option.
At the end of our holiday we were even farewelled by the staff with a lovely song. Wow what an amazing Resort. Thank you so much to Chris, Wendy and all the staff. You made us feel like family. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a child free relaxing holiday.
