Samoa Tradition Resort is located approximately 10 minutes drive from Apia City (based on my driving habits of course and if you cut through the Sports Complex). It is nestled in private lush green surroundings and if you listen a bit closely, you can hear the burbling of the river that runs behind this natural setting. It is high enough to have views to the township.
Samoa Tradition Resort has given a modern twist to the original Samoan Fale offering a two storey option with two separate bedrooms. The Resort offers Villas, Apartments and Suites, fully air conditioned and of course, with mini kitchenettes. Kitchenettes, have bench top elements, microwave, hot water jug, big fridge and all the utensils and coffee/tea. The place is surrounded with vibrant gardens and plenty of "lemon grass". Help yourself to fresh lemon tea!!! They cost an arm and a leg overseas for a fresh cuppa.
On site is a swimming pool, a delightfully spacious deck, part of which is roofed and the other open to the beautiful weather and starry nights. There is an air-conditioned restaurant on site which can be configured to a conference room, comfortably seating up to 50+ theatre style.
The bar has all your usual drinks, from local to imported beers and wines plus the favourite spirits..my weakness being Jim Beam & his cousin Coke. Loved the music selection of all the old favourites.
The food we had for the two and a half days was generous in portion and price and the best part, it was delicious. First nite, we were served garlic prawns over a fresh salad, and for mains, a large tender steak with fresh mushroom sauce and baked potato, a coleslaw on the side and dessert. The second night was a delicious buffet of "size 2" roast pork...loved the crackling although it does not do much good for one's hips..but then we only live once. That is my excuse any way. There was roast taro, palusami, octopus in baked in coconut cream, fish, both cooked and in hawaiian style "poke" and so much more. Samoans surely do love their food and who can blame them.
Service was excellent!! We had two staff waiting on our group during the two days and we were truly pleased with the friendly and efficient service provided. Thanks Pale and Fiasapapalii. No request was too much for the team.
There is paid WIFI on site and rental vehicles for hire. I believe special rates apply for the vehicles for in-house guests.
A couple of minutes away is the Faleata 18 hole Golf Course, the Aquatic centre, sports gyms and cricket fields, archery field etc.,
The family of Su'a, Alavine and their son Terence are wonderful and very accommodating hosts.
I would highly recommend this property for holidayers, long term stayers, business travellers as well as sports people, given its secure environment, its proximity to town and yet far enough away to be private. The owners live on site and provide that reassuring sense of security for guests.
I suggest you check this property out when you are next planning to visit Samoa with your loved ones.
