Beautiful beach front fales, very nice family. Great little touches like a coconut on arrival, decorated toilets. You get fed the best fale version of breakfast as well as a full dinner. Close to dive centre, resort, good restaurant and Samoa local activities/attractions. Clean and tidy. And all for a ver reasonable price Definitely would stay again. Thanks very much😀

We loved our one night stay at Tanu Beach Fales. We stayed in 'Judy's' on the water edge and just loved it. No frills but was exactly what we wanted. Staff were very friendly. Dinner and breakfast was tasty and filling. Fale was simple and comfortable. Stars at night just mesmerizing. Lovely to swim in the warm sea and snooze...

Hands down amazing beach! That's about all. For 70 tala/night we stayed in a beach fale which also included breakfast and dinner. We've been visiting Tanu Beach Resort every year for the past 15years and it used to be our favourite spot mind you no recognition is given. I believe it's a family run business which is why we were...

If you are looking for a place to relax where you can feel like you are not just another tourist, this place is awesome. The Fales are small but very cosy and authentic. The firs row is about 4 meters from the ocean and you will have the best view for sunset and sunrise. You can't lock the fales, but...

My family and i have stayed here 4 times now due to the beautiful location and the beach that is so calm and perfect for young children to splash around. We caught some beautiful sunrises and were able to swim comfortably at 5am in the morning thanks to the warm temperatures. Loved the social eating and friendly atmosphere of the...

Had a drunk local guy waking me up by knocking at my open fale 3 in the morning, asking me for a cigarette. After repeatedly telling him I had none, and having to raise my voice to alert my neighbours, he left. This frightened me so much, I did not sleep. I could hear at least 3 guys walking around...

We stayed 4 nights in September in beach front fales with friends. When we arrived they put us in a fale one back from the beach as they were full although we'd booked beach front. It wasn't too bad and when the crowd left they were happy to let us move beach side which we highly recommend. The beach is...
