Spent a week here in June(late review), needed to get away from it all! It was amazing, choice of closed or open fale, mine was right on the beach! Communal breakfast and dinner which was really good and great for mingling with people. Shower/ toilets across the street, huts are basic. Traditional dance and fire show on Wed & Sat....

Now it is important to note that this is a no frills kinda holiday. If you are looking for an off the grid getaway, to relax, catch up on reading your favourite books, meeting new people and try a little of the local style living. This is a gem.

The Fales are great in keeping with Samoan tradition.. The stafff are awesome and friendly , love the eating all at one table for meals, this gives it a more homely laid back feel and gets you talking to other guests. The beach here is the best I have been to its amazing.

We stayed here one night in a gorgeous beachfront fale. As expected very basic but clean and quite comfortable and nice sea breezes which helped make it comfortable because there is no airconditioning. The bed was rather soft but comfortable enough. The view from our fale was gorgeous. Our fale was right next to the restaurant so you had little...

My partner and I went here for a swim so we paid $5Tala each to swim and another $50 for a beach fale just for the day. This place is great for picnics and BBQ. It was beautiful the water was clear and it was a beautiful turquoise colour. Definitely worth your money.

What a beautiful location and such nice people. Very low key. If you want an authentic experience you won't be disappointed. We stayed in the hillside units, as we wanted private bathroom facilities. These units are great. But if you want beachfront fales with private bathrooms, book early, as there are only two of them.

It's glamping! But all that you need to relax. Great local food well cooked, cold showers but you don't even notice with the temperature and very welcoming staff. Just chill out and go with the flow. We had a rental car which was handy for some of the tourist attractions. Thanks Taufua and see you again.
