This resort is set amongst 224 acres of tropical gardens with a lagoon-style pool and private beach. Daily buffet breakfast is included.
Score from 21 reviews Good
|Set on an idyllic private white sand beach, Sa'Moana Resort boasts a natural lava rock outdoor swimming pool. It offers free tropical continental breakfast daily.||
At Return to Paradise Resort the most difficult decision a guest may face is whether to swim in one of 4 swimming pools or in the sparkling waters of Paradise Beach opposite the resort.

Loved the food the service was awesome the pool was great for the kids loved every min of it n cocktails ....... Cheers until next time
Wow a microwave will be nice in the little kitchen n maybe just a kids meal to add to menu like a fish n chips or just some sort of kids meal. Will be great two of my children only eat chips coz no kids food you know maybe some chicken/ fish chips type of things they can't eat fancy food :)
This resort exceeded our expectations beyond imaginable. The staff were friendly, the oceanfront fales were great and every meal we had was delicious. They helped plan our engagement dinner with my fiance and everything could not have been more perfect. The free water sports hire was great and the tours we went on (snorkeling and wet & wild) were very good and the staff very friendly. I would recommend this resort to anyone :)
Staff (especially Susan, Lucy and Meena) are superb and always go the extra mile to help you. Pace is relaxed, facilities are excellent (with a few minor wear and tear issues). Only 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from the Savaii ferry. Meals are superb, and people from other resorts eat at Le Vasa because of the food variety and quality. Beach is not fantastic, but the pool is superb and an ideal place to idle away the hours. Bikes are there to use for free, as are kayaks.
Beach not ideal for swimming. Rocky and picturesque but other places offer better sand covered beaches. Fales are showing a few minor wear and tear signs, but everything functions.
Ocean suit room was nice. Received an up grade on our 2nd stay to ocean view room. Location is good with ocean on 3 sides Food was ok
Even thought there was only minimal guest's at resort no consideration or ability to have early check in except to pay for an additional full day.No flexibility 2.00 pm and that's it. Could not get breakfast only minutes late and no chance of lunch. Very hard to get information ie car hire, felt like we had to pry assistance from staff.Noisy aircon and dogs barking in the night. Wasps and broken chair on verandah. Pool furniture is old and in need of maintainemence.
Showers were horrible. Felt like we were imposing on the staff when we ordered drinks and cocktails.
Handy to the airport and nice grounds and surroundings. The staff were obliging and helpful but completely ruled by the rules and policies which seemed to be myriad.
The hotel is run by non-Samoans (OK, foreigners) who have managed to introduce rules and policies covering just about everything from having to pay up front (unusual in Samoa) through to when equipment can and can't be used. You can't really swim in the sea because the area is tidal and at low tide there are mudflats and stingrays to negotiate. We had a major run in with management when we arrived which was, to be fair, partly our own making. However, it set the tone and it was clear the owners weren't going to accommodate the punters if it meant loss of revenue. If you want a genuine Samoan experience, best to go somewhere else, there are a number of similarly priced alternatives that are far more representative of the generous hospitality usually available in Samoa. We definitely won't be staying here again.
General staff were very friendly.
Showers were horrible...they really need to fix these. Menu was limited. Prices constantly changed for day trips, transfers etc. They seemed to make them up I'm the spot. Don't use the taxi the resort calls for you because they charge way too much, better to find your own and get a card to call that taxi driver.
All the staff were super friendly to guests. The views were beautiful. Not a long drive from the airport, but far enough away so you don't hear the planes.
For a resort I expected to get a lot more for my money - you pay through the nose for everything. Take your own shampoo, conditioner and soap with you. The price of the meals and drinks was quite high compared to the other resorts we visited during our stay. There is only very limited beach access which is also where they park up the boats, the rest of the resort is surrounded by rocks. You have to pay for some of the non-motorised water sports which is not the normal. I was advised that there was also no spa/massage facilities however I overheard another guest being directed to somewhere for a massage. If you need to get into Apia from here you need to figure it out yourself - there is no service provided by the resort, however there is ample free parking if you have a rental car. Happy hour drinks are not the drinks actually supplied during that time unless you specifically request them. Upon check in the registration form asked if we were interested in any activities, we marked the ones we were interested in however no attempt was made by the staff to book us on any of them.
Appearance of the facilities and gardens were nice. Seemed a bit regimented though with the boom gate and flag poles! In Samoa? Sad to see a commemorative plaque to a place of such apparent national significance closed off from public view. Hire a car if you intend to stay here. Gives you freedom to get to other places. It's cheaper to get around than taxis. Local buses are a great experience though! If you stay here you can easily walk to and take the ferry to Manono. That is an awesome trip. You can organise this yourself with the local water taxi driver. Savii ferry not too far away either.
Attitude. Check in. Their credit card system was down and despite having already paid 50% deposit we had to provide additional security in the form of cash for the remainder of the balance before they would let us in our room. When it was fixed there was no acknowledgement that the problem was not ours. The attitude seemed to be that the customer is wrong until proven otherwise! Not a good way to do business or make us feel welcome. Food. Expensive with little variety. We ended up not eating much at the resort. Thank goodness we had our own transport which we had not intended to use so much in the first instance, but it ended up very useful. Service. The service was definitely not the same friendly Samoan experience we had experienced elsewhere. No problems with the Samoans providing the service at the resort. They were doing their best. But the culture/atmosphere is not pleasant though. Definitely not service based! That comes from the top - not your staff. The facilities. Ok, but nothing special. Restaurant/bar area is a nice space, but central position becomes a problem with noise that emanates from there. Room. Ok, but not focused on providing what is actually needed to be completely comfortable, E.G. seating for 2 inside when the villa sleeps 5! Hot water runs out and/or sometimes never happens. That wasn't so much an issue for us. Cold showers are ok in this climate. But being told that there was only 5 litres of hot water at a time and dismissing that as being somehow the "Samoan way" by the non-Samoan receptionist who showed us our room was a bit rude I thought. Have respect for the country that you are residing and earning an income in. Location. No real beach. No way to get out to beautiful waters out closer to the reef and clear waters, except for a long swim. The final straw.
The garden room was very disappointing and we immediately upgraded to one of the beachfront fales. We'll worth it as the difference in quality was immense. Food was varied and well presented and very good value. The pool and grounds were immaculately presented and the service was good, certainly very laid back. The range of activities was good particularly the kayaks fishing options and range of Island tours available.
Lack of in room entertainment. Needs to have better availability to wifi and television. One TV in the resort for all guests was a little disappointing.
Food Pool Closeness to airport
Charged for every little thing....felt very nickel/dimed Bed had a broken frame Hot water went out and it took awhile for them to replace the propane No free wifi NO BEACH!!
Our room, the food was superb and staff very friendly and helpful. The location was also very nice, full seaview, beautiful tropical garden.
The beach - it looks great, but the sand is very slimy and slippery when you try stepping into the water. All we could do is jump straight into it during the high tide. Generally, there are a very few good beaches in Upolu.
Location, local staff, food. The area was truly beautiful. The Fia Fia night was spectacular, if a little pricey.
Lack of facilities such as a shop where you could get necessaries such as shampoo, snacks etc, price of accommodation in dispute due to lack of clear advice on exchange rates spoiled our stay. Turned out to cost more than was budgeted for
Quietness Peacefulness Relaxation Friendly staff Great food On time for internal pickups to the airport. Like I mean at the minute!!!
Not long enough to stay Not enough alcohol in the coctails lol
Our "overwater" bungalow was fairly clean, spacious, had a stunning view over the lagoon, and the kettle / kitchen sink / fridge / dishes were a nice touch that allowed a bit of self catering. Nice pool, beautiful grounds and views. Food at restaurant was good.
The "over water" bungalow is not over water, and I paid a premium price by Samoa standards to finally get that experience ($ 220 USD per night... that's a lot compared to the other resorts in Samoa). In reality, it was on land / waterfront with the balcony barely peeking over the water at high tide. Not what you'd expect. The reception desk was never staffed, we always had to go to the bar and ask for help and often waited up to ten minutes for someone to turn up, then they would leave as soon as they answered your question, and often before the next relevant question came up. This proved quite difficult and we had a hard time booking ferries, finding out drive times or directions to attractions (missed the To Sua trench altogether as we attempted it without any input from reception and took a wrong turn, ended up having to come back because we were running out of fuel and there are no road signs to get you back on track, make sure to fill up near Apia!). This wasn't really reception's fault but having an attentive, present and helpful front desk staff sure makes things easier in a country like Samoa where it is not well set up for visitors. Lastly, really nothing to do at night. We were there Sat/Sun nights and nothing... no band, nothing... everyone went back to their fales by 9 pm. Was a bit boring.
Good food and coctails.
Unhappy and some unhelpful staff. non functional bikes
Bures were well appointed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Location was perfect. Food was ok but wouldn't rave.
No beach...just mud. Activity staff didn't know much I.e. How to paddle board. Acting manager needs a lesson in appropriate dress sense - this is an expensive resort.
We loved the lagoon being right outside our door and waking every morning to sun gently rising over palm trees. The resort is perfect for a total "island getaway". It is a "picture postcard" Pacific holiday venue. The restaurant had a good range of food options and the staff were friendly and willing to arrange any trips away from the resort to meet our specific needs. We were delighted that there was a Fia Fia show on our last night but that might not have happened if there were fewer guests.
It was a bit hard to really "explore Samoa" from here without a rental car. We did book a half day "island tour" but felt we didn't really do justice to Upolu's tourist attractions. However, we mostly wanted the relaxed resort atmosphere so it wasn't a big problem. But others should be aware of the pros and cons of a rather remote location.
disappointing in every way. The manager didn't try at all to solve problems. I have never seen so many unhappy faces around. There are definitely better places to spend your hard earned money on Samoa.
Food and drinks were good. Exceptionally clean room. Lots of tours on offer. Large rooms suitable for family.
Massage was not the same high quality as everything else. Ocean around the resort was not as appealing as other places.
awesome place to relax and get some R&R.
Travelled to Le Vasa resort Samoa for our Honeymoon in early April and in one word is was "Fantastic".! If you are looking for a fast paced holiday with lots of activities and lots of people than this is definitely not the place for you. If you want to relax like you never have before and let the worlds troubles drift away while you take in the most amazing island paradise then this is where you want to go. The location is absolutely stunning, it is an hour out of town but who cares! We did not go there to hang out in the city we went there for an island get away and that's exactly what it is. Plus, if you do want to travel into town for the day it's only 80 Tala each way with Napoleon (the drive) who is one of the nicest people I have ever met. The staff are unbelievably friendly, no request is a problem, the management are fantastic and will bend over backwards to tailor your stay and make it as an enjoyable as possible. The food is a banquet of total indulgence, 5 star every night and with a decent exchange rate the price is very reasonable. The chefs are great especially "Wright" who will cook his way into your holiday and the bar & restaurant staff are excellent especially Melissa. The rooms are very clean and comfortable but not what you would call five star but you're not staying at the Ritz Carlton so leave your glitz and glamour expectations at home and I guarantee, you will have a wonderful holiday just as we did spending lazy days by the pool drinking beautiful cocktails. Thank you so much to the Management for such a wonderful, romantic memorable holiday, we can't tell you how much we appreciate it. We have recommended Le Vasa to everyone we know. Greg & Tessa
Nothing, it was awesome.
I loved the quiet location and small and friendly resort feel .. The atmosphere was so relaxed and casual , but of a high standard ...
Had a few problems with transport to the city ..
Le Vasa is a small attractive resort. The local staff were amazing and its position at the end of the island really handy. The food was also great with the fresh seafood being really special. Use of Island flavours and a bit of spice was really well done.
We had a frustration around our booking which was very badly handled and included the resort lying when it was challenged - all in all they were very unhelpful in this regard. Other negatives were the very cloudy sea at this end of the island, other resorts on the South Coast had far superior snorkeling off the beach. Also our room was far from mosquito proof, it was over the lagoon and the holes between the floorboards seemed great access for these little beasties, my partner and I were eaten alive. With no mosquito netting, there was no way around this.
The staff were lovely and the meals were excellent.
