Experience authentic Samoan luxury and hospitality at this locally owned and operated beachfront resort.

This resort sits beside the picturesque white sand beach and has an interesting history dating back to the 1953 movie Return to Paradise starring Gary Cooper. Since that time the beach and surrounding land has been owned and cared for jointly by local Samoan families who eventually decided to create this resort. This modern resort is still locally owned and staffed by the extended family members. This is a destination where you can experience traditional Samoan culture and get some insight into how this friendly and welcoming community live.

The resort has just 60 rooms, villas and suites in a variety of sizes and sleeping configurations. This makes it a more intimate resort, with no crowds and never any hustle and bustle. There are several excellent dining options available at the resort. Paradise Kitchen is the signature restaurant with a menu featuring international cuisines created with the freshest local produce. Cabana Café is open through the peak season and features a range of light meals and snacks, while the Rock Pool Bar has a fantastic location near the beach and is a great socialising spot where you can try a local Samoan beer, a wine from the cellar or a delicious cocktail.

The amazing wide sandy beach provides endless hours of activities and fun and there’s plenty of room for everyone, so don’t expect to be crowded. If you want a change from the beach and ocean, the resort has 3 outdoor pools that have plenty of shady spots to relax, sip on a cool drink and forget about your worries. Sparadise Day Spa is a tranquil retreat that offers a pampering experience with a selection of traditional massages and beauty treatments for guests. The resort runs weekly cultural nights, where you can enjoy some traditional Samoan entertainment, learn authentic crafts and experience the rich 3000-year old history of the island.

Visitors to this locally owned and operated resort have a unique chance to experience the authentic Samoan lifestyle up close. With the excellent service given by the friendly and welcoming staff, plenty of activities to try and first-rate accommodation on offer, there is something here to suit everyone. Surrounded by natural forest and manicured gardens on one side and the white sand beach on the other, the location of this resort is perfect for your next Samoan getaway.
