Lusia's Lagoon Chalets
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Salelologa
Reviewed 13 August 2017

We stayed at Lusia's to be close to the wharf, so that we could catch the early ferry to Upolu. The room was plain but comfortable and clean. The breakfast (up to 16 tala and included in the price) was excellent; fresh fruit, eggs, toast, good coffee. All the staff seemed very helpful and friendly. We were able to walk to the market and downtown to the bank (15-20 min) but there are plenty of buses and taxis. We had a taxi drive us (for 60 tala) to the Tafua reserve where we took a short hike (about 1 hour roundtrip) up to the crater. The internet at Lusia's was sketchy; we had to ask the staff had to turn on and off the modem to make connections. The area around the chalet was intriguing with the winding paths and bridges through the jungle but if they cleaned up some of the junk lying around, it would be nicer. We didn't go swimming in the lagoon because it looked a little murky. Lusia's lends out kayaks and has lifejackets.

Room Tip: We chose an ensuite room which is a little more expensive but I think worth the cost

We didn't stay here, but met travellers who recommended it. We stopped by for lunch prior to the ferry crossing back to Upolo. There is a terrific little spot over the lagoon to have a swim. We met a lovely Kiwi couple who had been staying there who were happy as. (Compared to an Invercargil winter, anything would be I reckon!) The staff were friendly and accommodating. We had a nice swim, a beer and tasty fish and chips. It's a minute from the wharf, so if you have just arrived on Savai'i or have some time before catching the ferry, pop in. You'll be impressed.

Room Tip: Didn't stay but lunch was tops.

Quaint hotel on the island of Savai'i that gives a real feel for the real Samoa. Our room was right on the ocean with a ladder down to the water. The hotel is in the middle of the jungle that goes right down to the water just out of Salelologa. A great, romantic setting. This is a very reasonably priced hotel where it is fun to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I'll stay there again when I travel to Savaii. It has some great sunrise views.

It would be fair to say the pace of life on Savai'i is beyond slow. Nothing happens in a hurry and life is fairly laid back.

Lusias is a reflection of this way of life and thats not a bad thing at all.

Henry is the biggest asset to Lusia's. He is helpful, cheerful, dedicated and fabulous with children. My kids thought he was awesome. He has a really good understanding of English as well so he was really easy to communicate with.

The room was HUGE. The aircon did some weird stuff, like spew water and make some crazy noise, but even though it was hot, the fan did what it needed to do. Mossies are INSANE. Take repellent and spray it on before you sleep.

We had 5 of us in the room and we were comfortable. If your expecting 5 star you'll be very upset. If your expecting clean and comfy its great. No TV, but actually thats not a bad thing at all. We got a pack of cards for a few tala at the local shop.

The food was great. The kids LOVED the pancakes. We ate a few meals on the deck. The deck is the highlight of Lusias. A cool wharf that we spent HOURS jumping off. At low tide its a bit shallow but nothing overly dangerous. The water was perfect.

We hired a car for $120 tala a day. We filled up at the petrol station just down from the hotel which was pretty reasonable. Dont fill on the other side of the Island. We spoke to some people that did that OUCH.

We circumnavigated the Island and feel like we had an authentic Samoan experience.

We spent 3 nights on Savaii all up. It was well worth it in every way.

Lusias is a great place to base yourself.

​We stayed at this place for three nights, in the so called honeymoon suite! The premises are located on the waters edge and their are a number of cabin type rooms/chalets near us. There is a deck by the water and some limited seating.

1. Staff were friendly and inviting. Henry was the guy in charge and he did a good job. Note that we stayed in a top end resort before leaving Samoa, and the staff at Lusia's were much more accommodating and approachable than them. Nice work.
2. Rental car available, but it won't knock your socks off! :)
3. Great shower in our room.
4. Lusia's is nicely positioned on the lagoon edge.

1. Our room was close to the restaurant, kitchen and social area. The noise coming from these areas was sometimes a bit disturbing. The openness of the our chalet made it impossible to block this out.
2. No hot water in the bathroom (ensuite).
3. They said the room had a view in Booking.com but we didn’t have a view!
4. Our room was basic and I think the owners need to reinvest a bit into the quality of this room e.g. paint and chattels. Attention to detail in cleaning would also be good.

Overall, it may be an OK option if staying on the island of Savai'i.
