We Went to Samoa for our honeymoon and book in at a resort on the opposite side of the island, it wasn't what we wanted someone told us about Le Vasa Resort and we decided to take a ride over and see if it was where we wanted to spent the rest of our honeymoon. We drove up to the resort the entry was lined with coconuts trees swaying in the wind and all the fales were right on the ocean. The ocean looked so clear, turquoise blue. beautiful flower gardens and the fale was exactly what we wanted. We had the best honeymoon, the owner Scott took us on an amazing susnset cruise and then my husband organised a private breakfast on bat island just 15 mintues away from the resort. We had the whole island to ourselves and it was so amazing and romantic I will always remember my time at Le Vasa Resort. The food was excellent and the ambience was really inviting. The fales were clean and romantic, comfortable furnishings and anything we needed the staff was always ready and available to help. Everyone always had a smile on their face. to tell you the truth we didn't want want to go. I told the owners that this was exactly what we wanted!!! If you ever want to go to Samoa be sure to check out Le Vasa Resort!

I am a samoan born american who has been living in america for most of my life . i recently returned to samoa and stayed at this resort and i found the stay to be Terrible . The service was bad , the very very small beach smelt like rotten eggs and their food was very over priced . Furthermore the management was Discerningly selective towards people who stayed in the suites in the way that thay got preference over those of us who paid budget rates. I being a samoan am very dissapointed with this resort . It is NOT a good example of the famous samoan hospitality....

We recently stayed at Le Vasa which is about 30 minutes drive from the airport, the Resort is small with a view of the islands, rooms good standard but the place smells badly when the tide is out, if you bother to venture into the sea with the very very small beach they have (Photos deceiving) you will sink into the mud and we think this is where the smell and odour comes from.

The gardens are mediocre as is the food, quite pricey and the staff slow and inefficient!

There is no lobby but you check in where they have their work shop, this for a Resort charging USD$300 per night...hmmm Id expect this from a place like Aggie's or the Hilton but not a small resort which also had no actual activities, a choice of Restaurants etc etc

Id not recommend!

This review contains a number of mistruths and exaggerations. We believe it may have been written by a man who attempted to run out on his bill and was apprehended and detained by the police while visiting Samoa.

Le Vasa Resort is just 6 miles from the airport, about 10 minutes. Our rooms are not rooms in the traditional sense, but rather individual cottage-style fales, each quite generous in size and there are many different sizes to choose from. The room this guest stayed in was $179.00 USD/night, not $300 as is stated in his review. Since opening in May, we have received many accolades for our food from well-traveled visitors, as well as visitors from other resorts, and locals. In fact , this guest ate in the restaurant every day of his visit and even dined with the management staff while here.

We are in the final stages of an extensive renovation. When this guest arrived, we were finalizing the renovations to our reception, spa and meeting rooms. All of our other renovations were complete.

All of the resorts on the western side of the island of Upolu have exposed volcanic silt at low tide. The only odor present is that of the fresh sea air, whether the tide is high or low.

Please read the other many positive reviews we have received in order to make a well-informed decision.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we so appreciate that you fixed all the areas of difficulty up in our favor. We will not forget that—you came to the party!.

Location: Outstanding. Not far from the airport, but right on a point so everywhere you look are palm trees and water for miles. This property is really an outstanding location.

Rooms: Have been finished with class! Each room has a veranda with amazing new age chairs, so you can sit out in private and watch the sunset. The bed is so comfortable, we slept like logs and the air conditioning works great. You will love your classy room.

Pool Area: Outstanding! The pool area has been elevated and every where you look, you look out to the sea. We just sat lying around the pool area for days reading books and swimming in the beautiful pool.

Restaurant: Outstanding! The food is the best you will find. It’s hard to beat any where in the world!

Service: Everyone was very willing to please!

Again we want to thank you for a lovely time. It was just what we wanted: a lovely room, relaxing days and great food. We will be back. Lookout for us in May 2008, and we are recommending this property to all we meet.
