My sister and I spent five nights at Litia Sini in one of the beachfront fales. The beach was beautiful and the snorkelling was great. The fale was basic and comfortable, but it lacked some essentials which would have made such a difference - things...More
We stayed here for three nights in the front fales and absolutely loved it, wish we could have stayed longer! But it was the end of our trip. The fales are pretty, practical, clean, and right on the beach. You get a lovely breeze on...More
I have stayed at Litia Sini Beach Resort many times and it never fails to cut the mustard. The hospitality shown is second to none. The beach is the best in Samoa, but yes be careful, there are plenty of signs to show you where...More
We stayed for 3 days in a beach front fale with our grandchildren next door so it was great for getting to and from the sea and keeping an eye on the children from the deck. We enjoyed the food prepared by the helpful staff...More

As a frequent guest, and someone who has been helping the resort rebuild since the Tsunami, I am answering on their behalf. You have compared Samoa to Noosa and to Bali, but I think unfortunately you haven’t taken to time to understand Samoa, their culture, and the unique challenges of the country. It’s a small island, in the middle of the Pacific, with significant challenges as a developing economy. Most products are imported (consider the cost), access is challenging, and power is mostly diesel generation, from Apia. So let’s not pretend for a minute this is a first world “Disney” destination. So to ask why they have a good rating, is asking the wrong question.
Litia Sini is not 5 star, but many travelers have rated their experience highly because they connected with the place or the people. You obviously didn’t, and that’s OK. But I am concerned someone “oversold” Samoa to you, and your expectations clearly weren’t then met. If you feel the website, or marketing material wasn’t representative or accurate, then we need to change that. Because we want to align people’s expectations with the experience. If a travel agent oversold the place, or Samoa, then that would also be great to get feedback on. Travel is a personal and individual thing. Samoa isn’t for everyone, it requires a sense of adventure, and some people simply don’t want that on holiday. That’s understandable.
The onus on the travel marketers, is to ensure expectations are aligned, so that people are matched and aligned to the destination; be that Samoa, Noosa and Bali.
