Simple, but well kept and always clean.
Here you can start and end the day with a swim on the warm turquoise sea of Lalomanu Beach.
Simply wake up and drag yourself to the sea or go for a swim on a warm tropical night....More
Litia Sini's Resort is so sacred to my heart. Just beautiful, excotic, and serene. The dawn is as beautiful as the sunset. The people are very nice welcoming. Don't forget to book your massage there, its the best in Samoa. I put excellent for the...More
Perfect spot on Lalomanu beach. We had a lovely time here and got to meet many other travellers because of the way the tables were set out for breakfast/dinner. Good service, clean, comfortable and enjoyable! Only thing is no air-con but we didn't miss it....More

As a frequent guest, and someone who has been helping the resort rebuild since the Tsunami, I am answering on their behalf. You have compared Samoa to Noosa and to Bali, but I think unfortunately you haven’t taken to time to understand Samoa, their culture, and the unique challenges of the country. It’s a small island, in the middle of the Pacific, with significant challenges as a developing economy. Most products are imported (consider the cost), access is challenging, and power is mostly diesel generation, from Apia. So let’s not pretend for a minute this is a first world “Disney” destination. So to ask why they have a good rating, is asking the wrong question.
Litia Sini is not 5 star, but many travelers have rated their experience highly because they connected with the place or the people. You obviously didn’t, and that’s OK. But I am concerned someone “oversold” Samoa to you, and your expectations clearly weren’t then met. If you feel the website, or marketing material wasn’t representative or accurate, then we need to change that. Because we want to align people’s expectations with the experience. If a travel agent oversold the place, or Samoa, then that would also be great to get feedback on. Travel is a personal and individual thing. Samoa isn’t for everyone, it requires a sense of adventure, and some people simply don’t want that on holiday. That’s understandable.
The onus on the travel marketers, is to ensure expectations are aligned, so that people are matched and aligned to the destination; be that Samoa, Noosa and Bali.
