Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa is a Samoan gem situated an hour drive from Faleolo International Airport in Apia. Nestled amongst coconut trees on a crystal-clear lagoon, this stunning island retreat is close to many spectacular natural sites with plenty of things to see and do for visitors.

Taumeasina Island Resort is a 360-degree tropical paradise island surrounded by beautiful crystal-clear waters. Situated 5 minutes drive from the capital city, Apia, the resort offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and luscious Upolu mountains. This is the only island resort in Samoa connected to the mainland by a causeway and its luxurious setting is like no other. You can choose to stay in a modern and luxurious Oceanview Room or why not try the fully self-contained Waterfront Villas for an authentic Samoan experience.

Dining options are made easy with three restaurants and two bars. Try Sina's restaurant for fine dining cuisine including traditional Samoan-inspired dishes, or Lapita Restaurant for more of a casual feel including live entertainment every night (we especially recommend the Fia Fia night which is very popular and needs to be booked in advance). In terms of what to do, there is a wide range of activities: snorkelling, kayaking, catamarans, tennis courts, an amazing pool and more.

Plus, there’s an awesome playground for the kids too! And for something a bit different they also offer Samoan cooking classes or diving lessons. Or if you just want to have a relaxing Samoa holiday, book yourself a treatment at the Fofo Spa and Sauna, or just sunbathe on the white sandy beach. For all of these reasons, this Samoa luxury beach resort is one of our favourite resorts in Upolu.

And when it comes to food, the beachside restaurant offers some of the island’s most delicious local cuisine. Snorkel and kayak gear are also available to explore the beauty of the lagoon.
