When we lived in Samoa in the mid 1980’s, there was tiny option in accommodation. There were two major accommodations in Apia, but only a single or two other choices in other parts of the nation. Now there are several resorts of top global good quality, fronting beautiful beach locations on both Upolu, and Savaii. There are a number of four star lodge choices, and numerous more affordable lodges or guesthouses.
For individuals who want to sample the straightforward Samoan existence…….. a fale on the beach will supply fundamental lodging for a couple of tala ( bucks), with a check out to die for, and the sand and sea only metres from your door.It will rely on what you want from your remain in Samoa, which decision will attraction most.
Apia…….the primary town, has a great variety of lodging. But it is not the greatest location if you are searching for beach locations. You will need to journey to the other aspect of the island for a beachside bed for the night. Some of the nicer accommodation in Apia is “up the hill” on Cross Island Street, where it is cooler…..but will need a taxi ride to town, if you have not rented a auto.
