Where to stay in Samoa

Where to stay in Samoa

Samoa is made up of nine islands but four are inhabited. The two largest islands are Savai'i and Upolu. If you’re wondering where to stay in Samoa, there are three main tourist hubs in this Polynesian paradise: the capital city of Apia; the broader Upolu Island; and Savai’i Island. Where you decide to stay will depend largely on the priorities in your itinerary.

Read travel guide

  • Apia

    Immerse yourself in Samoan culture, rub shoulders with the locals and get your entertainment fix in Apia, just 40 minutes away from the airport. Perched on a tropical hillside, Dave Parker Eco Lodge is handy to a variety of interesting attractions, including Apia Park and the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum. It’s small, intimate and excellent for travellers on a budget. Moanalisa Hotel is another laid-back option with bright, sunny rooms and a complimentary continental breakfast included in your room rate.

  • Savai’I Island

    Looking to get as close to the beach as possible? Va-i-moana Seaside Lodge is nestled in a small cove on the island of Savai’i with gorgeous views of Asau Bay. Babysitting services are available if you're holidaying with a young familylooking for some you time to enjoy a hard-earned break. Then there’s the award-winning Savai’i Lagoon Resort offering a variety of rooms depending on your budget, from garden bungalows to beachfront bungalows. Be sure to settle into a sunset cocktail or three at its barefoot beach bar and restaurant right on the beach.

  • Upolu Island

    If you’re keen on a secluded holiday, but still want to be close to the action, Le Vasa Resort is one of the most sought-after resorts on the island, perfect for couples (including loved-up honeymooners) and families alike. It features a private beach and sea-facing bungalows. But when luxury is a non-negotiable, we highly recommend the four-star Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa. Imagine checking in to  your own island villa, soaking in an outdoor stone bathtub, champagne glass in hand, before enjoying  some heavenly pampering at the spa.

Frequently asked questions

When you're packing for a trip to Samoa, don't forget the essentials like your passport, phone, chargers, camera, sunblock, some Samoan tālā and the correct power adaptor. From there, we recommend packing a towel, plenty of bathing suits, insect repellent, a hat, reef shoes and jandals, some walking shoes and a strong affinity for naps. 

With its prime position in the Pacific and relatively small size, it's hard to go wrong with your choice of holiday location in Samoa. You can easily travel and explore the island nation or park up at one of the beautiful beaches like Lalomanu, Sa'Moana and Salamumu for some laid-back island vibes.
