Vaimoana was a fantastic place to stay. We were spoilt with beautiful food and service, staff were lovely and its a top location..
Setting is wonderful. Swimming with turtles. Staff great. Food good.
Please get the cats off the tables!
My partner and I had the most fantastic stay. The staff were amazing and very friendly, the views were breathtaking and activities were lots of fun. Would go back in a heartbeat.
Just about everything. The staff were pleasant and helpful. They were not overbearing. Music in the evenings was very enjoyable. The beach, the jetty, the kayaks fabulous. Loved kayaking over to the small island to snorkel. Sunday buffet scrum. Good sized evening meals and perfectly adequate breakfast. Loved the location for access to surrounding attractions. Could you drive along the coast of Savaii too often??? I think not.
The only thing that needed improving was the linen on our king size bed. It did not fit the bed adequately and unravelled as soon as we hopped into it. A heavier quality cotton sheet set would be preferable. In addition, as the air con would be fine for one person but too cold for the other a bed throw over the top would be nice too. Finally, all beds could use pillow and mattress protectors. That said, our bed was comfortable and the linen was changed every second day.
Amazing staff. Great stay
When you pay for a meal plan in the islands you usually hope for the best. And at Vai'Moana you get it! Breakfast was simple but plentiful and dinner was excellent. The setting for the evening meal is beautiful and the staff are just fantastic! It felt like a real Samoan experience. Stunning little beach, great jetty to jump off, good snorkelling (although the reef is clearly damaged/recovering) nice lunch options and lovely singing from the staff at night time. We stayed in a villa with our own bathroom/deck. Everything was immaculately clean and although a little dated, it was well air conditioned and very spacious. For the price tag, this place is incredible!
If I had to pick something: the sunbeds can not be adjusted/are fixed and sometimes lunch took rather a long time.
Went with a group of family and friends and the three nights here were the best of our ten days in Samoa. Staff could not be more helpful, food was excellent and relaxation was the order of the day. Will be back.
We only stayed for three days.
The staff were very friendly and informative and helpful. The kitchen catered for diet requirements (gluten free) and all meals (except lunch) were provided and were delicious. Great snorkeling nearby - either by a short kayak to the off-shore island, or a 5 min drive. Comfortable mattresses in air-conditioned rooms we had (rm 6 and 7). Samoa night was a grand finale for our stay. Everyday has some activities eg: coconut display, weaving.
Loungers on beach needed mattress to be comfortable (and adjustable reclining).
The staff are very friendly and seeing turtles off the pier was a real highlight.
The waves crashing against the rocks kept us up the first night we stayed there.
We loved the atmosphere and the staff were top notch - friendly, helpful and thoughtful. The food was very adequate, tasty and well presented. Really ;loved both the piped and live music( particularly good quality). Enjoyed the cultural component.
The lie ons at the beach would have been better if you could adjust them --hard for an old man to sit and read! Also, the raft is a bit of a mission to get on to. While I was fine - I suggest a little better risk management on the Reef swim would be good for you ! Things can happen. Suggest Tea and coffee making facilities should be available 24/7.
- Staff !! - Activities offered (free & paying) - Location - Equipements (free kayaks, bodyboard etc...) - The room right above the sea - Food & drinks (restaurant) - Beauty of the island & hotel
- Really far from the airport (Taxi - Ferry - Taxi) - Even with closed windows you'll hear the sea and have a lot of light from outside, be ready for this!
A real beach resort feel to it with all the surroundings you would expect. Staff were lovely to talk to and gave us a lovely welcome and sendoff, maybe because I fixed their wifi for them! Really recommend especially as a stop if you are touring the N Island. Great local food good bar and local entertainment. Coral not really recovered yet but good places to visit along that part of Coast
Our Fale was hanging over the shore so a fair bit of wave noise at night but other Fales are further back
The staff,food(first night Lobster Mornay),entertainment(excellent),atmosphere.
The staff quickly became friends and their service was above and beyond! The food was amazing, so fresh and more than enough. Beautiful location with things to do in the resort and daily traditional activities to join in with. We were sad to leave and will go back in a heart beat! Thanks to Luke, Rosie, David, Tao, Sarah, Lilo and the rest of the team for a fantastic holiday. Carl and Nyree
Vaimoana is peaceful and relaxed. The staff are a fantastic team, always smiling and helpful and knowledgeable about Samoan culture and fa'a Samoa. Great kai, great fiafia entertainment. We were well cared for and came away happy. We will definitely go back.
It's a long way away! but that's part of its charm - a true retreat.
romantic place ideal for couples, staff manners like in posh hotel, free kayaks for guests, range of free activities for guests
absence of powerpoint in open falas, mosquitos,
Beautiful location Friendly staff Good food Clean tidy rooms
Cold shower which partially flooded bathroom floor No one helped with carrying bags to rooms, even with my elderly travellers
Loved the friendly happy staff that work long hours to make your holiday memorable. Meals were fresh and tasted just like home made with a Samoan twist. Loved the location of our Fale in front of the beach with beautiful ocean view from the deck and bedroom, the king size bed, the hammock and perfect water temperature, sun shine and ocean breeze. Value for money.
The travel to and from the ferry but then that is possibly why it has retained its Samoan family ambience.
The resort has amazing views from the restaurant and bar area, and a nice common area and beach. The staff are awesome and always checking to see if you have anything you need, and will bend over backward to help you book things - this may be a bit of a rarity in Samoa! Gorgeous views from the balcony of waterfront (sunset) fales. Some rooms have aircon - we switched to one of these after our first night as we couldn't sleep in the heat. Included breakfast and dinner (half board) was great - breakfast was continental style, and dinner was always delicious - you don't get a choice on what you want, it's a set menu, but they will cater to food allergies or vegetarian preferences - I didn't ask about gluten free. The cheap boat ride (10 tala per person) out to Crab Island for snorkeling was well worth it as well! Store across the road was easy access for cheap bottled water and ice (don't drink the ice!).
I didn't 'not like' anything about the resort, but here are some things to expect at this resort. There are no fridges in the rooms, so packing a collapsible cooler to keep any of your own snacks and drinks cool is a good idea! Rooms without aircon were difficult to get a good breeze / cool off at night. Beds were a bit hard but did provide mosquito nets. Some rooms don't have hot water and some are outdoor showers, and the resort has limited water resources due to the dryness of the region, so showering is a quick and sometimes chilly experience! Overall though, the views, the excellent staff, and the good food and value for money more than made up for it these minor inconveniences.
We loved everything about this accommodation - the staff, location, food, activities. We were so sad to leave and in hindsight would have spent more time there rather than changing to different accommodation halfway through our trip.
Awesome location right at Asau Bay, beautiful snorkeling at the nearby island, excellent fishing with Mahi Mahi and Tuna, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff
Sometimes I felt like the waiters and waitresses were trying to please us too much while we we're having our dinner
Views, activities , food ,staff Kayaks quietness !
Bugs !! But typical in Samoa !!
TRADITIONAL ENVIRONMENT WITH THE GREAT SERVICE
WAS NOT LONG ENOUGH
Loved everything, can not say a bad word about this place. I would go bad :)
Staff were wonderful, very interested in you enjoying yourself. Good range of things avaliable to do through the resort- both free and additional costs
