About
Description
Return To Paradise Resort is on a spectacularly beautiful private beach which was selected for the Hollywood movie Return to Paradise starring Gary Cooper movie 1954. With white sand and a rich coral More garden, but just 25 minutes drive on a sealed road from the International Airport, the feeling is of being transported into a Samoan village. The Resort is owned and operated by a large extended Samoan family who have been guardians of this land for hundreds of years. Selected for Masterchef NZ 2014 even before the resort was opened, our international and local team of chefs create world class dishes with a tropical twist. Dine with stunning views in the Rock Pool Bar, or amongst the spectacular carvings of Paradise Kitchen, and enjoy a range of signature cocktails, all served by an extended family who feel genuine priviledged to serve you. There a wide range of ethical local tours available including swimming with turtles in a secret location, and snorkelling in the village's own giant clam reserve. Open daily for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. The Bar opens 10am-10pm daily. Day guests are welcome and may swim at the beach if dining in the restaurant. A romantic and picturesque wedding location with a dedicated wedding coordinator. Come as a guest, and leave as a part of the family. Less
