We had a garden fale, but it had a sea-view anyway. Everything about the hotel and staff was excellent, as detailed in previous reviews. Having a manicure at the spa with sea-view and breeze was a delight. The one downside to Samoa is that so many flights arrive and depart in the dark..around midnight, much to the annoyance of the...

Fabulous! three things to consider though: 1. dogs on the gold course were very intimidating and there were lots of them. 2. our toilet and shower was outdoors, so got plenty of mosquito bites in places we'd rather not be bitten. we stayed...

Spent a wonderful 6 nights at Sinalei in October and like many reviewers, loved it. The resort was beautiful, staff were friendly, food was great and there is a nice beach out the front. If you're looking for a relaxing break away from the usual touristy desitinations look no further - Sinalei is perfect.

We spent 6 nights at the Sinalei Hotel in early October 2012 and its such a wonderful place to relax and unwind. The resort is very beautiful, tidy and clean.

We called in for lunch on a tour around the Island and had a look around, beautiful accommodation on the beach including the restaurant which is suituated on the water. Bit thanks to Eseta, Corey and the staff for arranging a magnificent lunch and cocktails. The photos tell the story.
