When we lived in Samoa in the mid 1980’s, there was minor decision in lodging. There were two major hotels in Apia, but only one or two other choices in other elements of the country. Now there are many resorts of top global quality, fronting beautiful seashores on the two Upolu, and Savaii. There are several four star lodge options, and numerous less expensive accommodations or guesthouses.
For these who want to sample the basic Samoan daily life…….. a fale on the seashore will give fundamental lodging for a number of tala ( dollars), with a check out to die for, and the sand and sea only metres from your door.It will depend on what you want from your continue to be in Samoa, which selection will charm most.
Apia…….the major city, has a excellent assortment of lodging. But Best resort in Samoa Savaii is not the ideal spot if you are hunting for shorelines. You will want to travel to the other side of the island for a beachside bed for the night time. Some of the nicer lodging in Apia is “up the hill” on Cross Island Street, where it is cooler…..but will call for a taxi ride to city, if you have not rented a car.
