We made The Outrigger our base during our six days in Samoa. We were very glad that we did and we were more than happy with our experience there.
The colonial home is beautiful, spotlessly clean, bright and airy. It has variety of accommodation types and tariffs from air conditioned rooms to garden fales in you want to experience the traditional. The setting is a lush tropical garden with a breezy deck and a sparkling pool. There is a well equipped and pristine kitchen with stove and a fridge if you feel like eating on the deck.
Breakfast of tea, coffee, local fruit, a variety of breads to toast, cocoa porridge. pancakes served by happy eager to please staff, is a wonderful start to the day.
It is staffed 24h with security at night. which make it an ideal choice for solo females. The staff is incredible; ever smiling, courteous , resourceful and only too happy to help with their local knowledge of things to do , places to go, etc.
You can walk to downtown Apia but it is hot and there is a local taxi company across the road. Taxis are cheap and your charming desk staff will organize your trip. There are several excellent restaurants within a short evening stroll.
The Outrigger has hire cars which is one less hassle to negotiate after a long flight. You can organize a car and your accommodation in one transaction. Our car was a cute Honda wagon, very economical, comfortable and clean, with air con. Such an advantage as we travelled all around the island and gave us freedom and flexibility.However,day trips are happily organized by the lovely girls in reception.
The Outrigger is a credit to Klaus and his staff and is ideal for a short or longer stay especially for those who do not want to be isolated in a "resort" and who like the flexibility and spontaneous choices offered by being in the capital.
Breakfast of fresh local fruit, a variety of breads to toast, yummy cocoa rice porridge and/or a hot panache on the deck starts the day.
You could walk to downtown
