We had booked a 2 week surf trip to the Solomon Islands, but a severe weather event meant we had to cancel that trip at the last minute. As we would not get holidays together again in a long time we decided to find another location, and quickly as we were already 4 days into our trip. We telephoned Sa'Moana and were able to book in the next day, so we changed our flights and off we went. Samoa is paradise. Beautiful, friendly and safe. The staff and management at Sa'Moana went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay a great one. We surfed 5 out of the 7 days - thanks Ferani - and the other days we visited some of the natural beauty (you must visit Tu Sua) thanks Samoa. When we decided to extend our stay the resort was full so the management and staff cleaned out the house at the back for us to stay in. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys. So a BIG thank you from us to Steve, Ferani, Samoa, Mountain and the rest of the management team and wonderful staff. You saved our surfing holiday..
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a small 3.5 star remote, idyllic beach resort located at the end of the long, windy Salamumu beach road (about 6km track off main road). Our simple colorful wooden bungalows are all absolute beach front with their own private outdoor lava rock bathroom, private deck and of course fabulous beach and Pacific Ocean views. We are the perfect location for active families, couples and singles who want to totally switch off from the World for the length of their stay and be "Off The Grid" and see the real Samoa and maybe want something a little different from the standard "out of the brochure" vacation. We have an all-day bar and restaurant with comfortable seating for a sunset cocktail, good music including traditional Samoan tunes and great vibes. All our staff are local so can share their knowledge of the best places to visit, and the stories of the real Samoa. We do a weekly cultural show and a traditional Samoan Fire Dance and Haka display every Thursday - free to our guests. Guests are welcome to surf out front - its intermediate to advanced level and you need to bring your own board. Surf Tours can be arranged with local operators when you are here. There are several within 20/30 minutes of our resort. Car hire is highly recommended so you get to see the best of our beautiful island and discover your own magical parts of it - we can recommend lots for you to do and provide a map and some local advice. Please note we are not near any public transport, shops or other resorts / restaurants - we are literally a tropical island hideaway! If this is what you seek - you won't be disappointed! ... more less
