Solo female- booked 3 nights at Tanu beach fales, to my surprise after reading all the good trip advisor comments the resort was absolutely dead. Manase beach is stunning and the food is delicious, however as I was travelling alone and hoping to meet people this was not the ideal place to stay and I decided to forfeit part of...

Everyone should experience Samoa.. Savai'i is the best place to visit if you want to just do nothing. Beaches are beautiful and most importantly warm! Our beach front fale was just perfect, we slept with some of the blinds open and each morning woke up to the sunrise and the sound of the calm waves - it truely was paradise....

The open beach front Fale experience was a highlight of my 2 week journey around Upolo and Savai'i. The fales are right on Manase Beach which is a safe swimming area with fringing reefs....thus great snorkeling too....and unbeatable sunsets. The open fales have woven grass "curtains" you can pull down for privacy or leave open for cooling beezes. The stay...

We feel like part of the family here at Tanu we have been coming back for over 29 years now and will always return. Manase has a beach that ranks in my eyes as one of the most beautiful in the world, crystal clear turquoise water lined with palm trees in a very laid back peaceful setting. Accommodation is basic...

there are many choices in land for sales accommodation. We highly recommend Tanu. We were fortunate to get two fales right on the beachfront overlooking the beautiful safe swimming reef. Family run business and hosts were fantastic. Delightful singing prior to meals, plentiful food, friendly place and easy to chat with other travellers if you wish over dinner/breakfast. Sunsets were...

We once again stayed at Tanu's and it was everything we remembered plus more! Staying here is like staying with family. The beach is glorious......do not miss the sunset! The bathrooms are clean and serviced each day. The meals are generous and served with love. So glad we came back!!

Langy and her brother Vaea look after their guests very well. The open beach fales are on the beach front looking out over beautiful Manase beach. A great swimming and snorkeling beach and great for timid swimmers too. Langy and her team of mostly young guys cook up and serve great breakfasts and dinners - all included in the price....
