Beautiful Accommodation in the Samoa Islands

a beach hotel in samoa

There's only one large beach hotel in Samoa and with just 140 rooms even this is small by international standards. Instead, the most common type of accommodation in Samoa are beach fales and although the majority are simple open sided huts alongside the village beach, the small boutique resorts have replicated its style for tourists. Visit Samoa hotels for the cultural experience, for tropical rainforest walks and waterfalls and for secluded beaches, but come with an open mind for life here moves at a very slow pace.

Research Samoa hotels to find your perfect place to stay:

Where to Stay in the Samoa Islands

The two countries that make up the Samoa islands offer a very contrasting holiday. Samoa, the western portion and what used to be called Western Samoa, offers boutique beach resorts, traditional beach fales and a cultural holiday experience for holiday-makers mostly from Australia, New Zealand and Europe. By contrast, American Samoa, just 150 kilometres to the east, is a relative tourist back-water with no beach resorts and just a handful of hotels aimed at business travellers and Samoans visiting from overseas - and the majority from mainland USA.

On (Western) Samoa, there are a handful of small beach resorts on the main island of Upolu, a couple of which offer excellent surfing breaks. There's plenty of comfortable hotels in the main town of Apia which is a good base for sightseeing and exploring. Apia has great restaurants, lively bars and clubs and excellent local produce markets selling vegetables, fresh fish and local crafts. Savaii Island is the other destination to visit on a holiday and people come here mostly to relax on its beaches, snorkel in the lagoons and visit some of the extraordinary volcanic sites around the island including caves, blow-holes and vast barren lava fields.
