Certificate of Excellence
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 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!

We visited as a family of five in the July holidays and had a wonderful time. It’s basic. Sometimes very basic (outside showers with just a trickle of water), but the natural beauty and friendliness of the people makes it an outstanding place to visit....More

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

Our actual stay at the Bungalows was great. The place was clean and well cared for, the restaurant staff was very friendly. We hiked through the trees, we walked on the beach, we swam in the pool, and I loved the outdoor rock shower. However,...More
