Samoa Tradition Resort
Ranked #12 of 29 Hotels in Apia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Myself and four friends stayed here for 8 nights and have Samoa Tradition Resort to thank for an amazing holiday.The apartment itself was perfect, so practical two bedrooms both with aircon,huge shower and the most beautiful traditional high ceilings. From owner/manager Dan to Front Desk workers Ake, Tana and Terry and cant forget our handyman Fia and Barman Farani, falling over themselves to see to our every request. Accommodation is a gem hidden among the beautiful mountains of Apia with only a 5min drive to town, we enjoyed being just outside of town gave us a break from the bustling city life. Unbelievable pricing for car hire (so cheap) that we had included in our package and one of the best places for breakfast lunch and dinner. Overall I dont think I could see myself ever staying anywhere else and recommend friends and family to stay here as well. 10/10 thank you so much for the amazing stay at this awesome find.

Our family spent a few days at the resort while visiting family in the area. We appreciated the warm hospitality of our hosts. Everyone was kind and helpful. We loved the location -- tucked away in a lush tropcial setting.

The room was actually a two bedroom unit with a sitting area and kitchen. Very spacious. The air conditioning and fan were a welcome cool down. The traditional decor was very nice. The ceiling was a traditional fale design -- just amazing. We had two outdoor patio areas.

Our daughter had fun swimming in the pool and had the opportunity to meet other vacationing kids. My only suggestion is a ladder to get in and out of the pool. It did me good, however, to practice jumping out.

The restaurant was convenient and food was very good. Our compliments to the staff.

We highly recommended a stay in the traditional surroundings.

Room Tip: We liked the end unit.

We had a lovely time here. It was lovely to stay up in the hills just above Apia. The staff were exceptional. The accommodation was very nice with lovely ornate traditional touches. It was convenient having a kitchen. A few negatives were the mattresses, rather uncomfortable. There was a tv but couldn't watch it as the reception was really bad, a movie channel would have been a good idea. You definitely need to hire a car. The food was reasonable. Recommend!!!

From the moment we got picked up Terry and Dan have been awesome hosts , the resort has spectacular views and is situated in the mountain tops away from the busy lil town area :) enjoying a relaxing cold Vailima beer
Our family of 7 enjoyed our 10 day stay with Devine daily tropical breakfasts and a pool for the kids to chill , also If you looking to rent a vehicle they offer great discounts while you stay ,
The whole team at the resort were so helpful with all our needs , you just request it and boom it was done ..
Awesome family owned business who know how to treat visitors like family , I highly recommend this resort to anyone with family wants a nice vacation .

The Restaurant is class A with nice meals and snacks to go with a chilled beverage , price is average pricing you will get around all the resorts in Samoa .

The bar has awesome playing relaxing island jams to help you relax while you enjoy your meal or a quiet drink :)

The only downfall was time went so fast that we had to say farewell

thanks to Dan , Terry and team for an enjoyable memorable stay alofa Aku

Good place with nice people. Lots of different accomodation options. The deck overlooking Apia has great views. It's quiet, safe and friendly in a residential area up in the hills not too far from the centre of town. Best if you have your own car.

This hotel is situated in a very pleasant location in the hills above Apia. It's not a very practical location if you only have a day or so in Apia, but a very quiet and relaxing place away from the heat and noise of the town if you are here for longer. A relatively new hotel, it is very clean and comfortable, with a warm and welcoming management and appealing environment. The breakfast is delicious and filling. There are flexible arrangements with the rooms, which can house a large number if required, and also have tea/coffee making facilities, which isnt always usual in Samoa.

Definately would not recommend, stayed one and a half days at the end of our trip, dined in the restaurant and ordered 2 bottles of wine and manager tried to charge us more than double of what we paid in other resorts, We were about to leave to dine elsewhere and he came back with bottles of wine nearer the right price. Then he tried to charge us twice for the wine. Dont be fooled by prices on the menu as there are taxes added on at the end which came to quite a bit extra, only time we struck that in Samoa. When it was time to pay for our room it was a lot more than we were quoted by them on phone when we booked. However restaurant setting beautiful, meals lovely and service very good, friendly staff, very nice apartment, lovely place to stay, BIG SHAME HE THEMSELVES DOWN WITH HIS DODGY PRICES AND HIDDEN COSTS !!! We wondered why we were the only diners in restaurant both nights??
