About
Description
Moanalisa Hotel is named after daughters of the owners Liz and John Hunt who first built the hotel in 2010. The hotel is located in Vaitele on the main road between Apia and the airport only a few minutes from More Apia city. Liz and John manage the hotel along with their children - which makes it very much a family affair. They are ably supported by their other friendly and helpful staff members and boast having one of the best restaurants in town. Their goal is to make every guest feel like a member of the family. Guest rooms are tastefully decorated, extremely clean and well appointed with new LCD TV, bar fridge, telephone, and coffee/tea making facilities in room. There are many local amenities close by including transport to/from the city or airport, car rental, bank and a medical center right outside the front door. The newly built Vaitele Markets are also located right across the road from the hotel. All this combines to truly make Moanalisa Hotel your family and home in the heart of Polynesia. Less
