Authentic fale experience, basic but beautiful. Beach is stunning without crowds, very quiet and relaxing. Would recommend people to get away from Apia hotel and go for 1-2 nights. Best part of island!

Stayed here for two nights in a traditional beach fale. It was quiet, clean and the perfect spot to relax. Unlike taufua it is not extremely busy. Facilities are basic but clean. The hosts were very lovely. Beaches clean. Saturday night was a real treat!...More

We are having 18 beach fales directly at the beach - you could easily go for a swim after waking up - and 12 ensuite rooms with basic facilities. We are also offering a breakfast and traditional samoan food for More dinner. Once a week we are having a show called Fiafia which includes some of the most famous polynesian dances including the impressive firedance. On request we will arrange a bonfire at night for your amusement. Less
