Le Vasa is on the far west side of Upolu—past Faleolo airport and past Aggie Gray’s. It is a solid hour drive to Apia but only about 15 minutes from Faleolo Airport. Le Vasa consists of all ‘fales’ or Samoan type cabins. Ours was just at the water edge with terrific views and a very nice porch. The central buildings house the office and restaurant-bar. The restaurant offers gourmet meals, all freshly prepared, and a wide range of items. The bar has everything. The staff are super-friendly and very knowledgeable about Samoa. There are several ladies who run the place, and they are very efficient, friendly, and accommodating of anything. There is a big pool and resort type facilities (kayaks and many other things). They have a fia fia night once a week – very worthwhile to witness the Samoan fire dancing. The ladies who run the bar and restaurant are also exceptional – especially Ciara who knows the island well. The entire place is in a Samoan garden that is magnificently maintained. If you are looking for a real feel of Samoa, and luxury, and good food and friendly people, Le Vasa is a logical choice. You should consider a rental car because the island is large and taxi rides would probably be more expensive and much less convenient than rental cars. If there is any disadvantage of Le Vasa, it is the distance from Apia. But – Apia has become a hectic city and staying at an authentic Samoan place far from the city is a good idea.
