The elephant in the room with this place is the road to and from the resort - it’s poor at best. If you haven’t got access to a 4WD I’d probably give this place a miss. That said, once you get there, you’ll be blown...More

Hi there Thanks for the review - yes the road is a a bumpy beach track and manageable in a 4wd as we receommend to all of our guests. Food-wise - we are very competitive to other hotels and probably a quarter less than the...More

Bungalow was 10 steps from the infinity pool. Very basic but all you need when you just want to unwind. Forget modcons embrace the basic nature of the place and soon you will adopt the same pace as the island, slow and steady. Staff were...More

About
Description
We are a small 3.5 star remote, idyllic beach resort located at the end of the long, windy Salamumu beach road (about 6km track off main road). Our simple colorful wooden bungalows are all absolute beach front More with their own private outdoor lava rock bathroom, private deck and of course fabulous beach and Pacific Ocean views. We are the perfect location for active families, couples and singles who want to totally switch off from the World for the length of their stay and be "Off The Grid"see the real Samoa. We have an all-day bar and restaurant serving fresh, locally sourced ingredients in a varied menu and lots of seafood (try the Coconut Wahoo!) Comfortable deck seating for a sunset cocktail, good music including traditional Samoan tunes and great vibes. All our staff are local so can share their knowledge of the best places to visit, and the stories of the real Samoa. Car hire recommended! We also have mountain bikes, SUPs and Kayaks for hire. Snorkeling out front is fantastic! Less
