Awe inspiring!
Aug 2018 • Couples
This monument gave us an amazing immersive experience with Pacific history. This was the exact spot where the Malietoa alii, matai and warriors put an end to the 300 year Tongan occupation circa 1250 AD. A simple but impressive monument on a very attractive headland and readily accessible from the Le Vasa Resort!

Honeymoon
Apr 2017 • Couples
We stayed at Le Vasa for our honeymoon, it was a perfect little set up, quiet, peaceful and enough activities to keep both of us entertained. The Fale' we stayed in was nice, met all our needs and we felt at home easily. The food was great. we found the customer service especially from Tony to be exceptional. He took us on the wet'n'wild tour which was spectacular and something we would recommend. We also found Tony to be very approachable and friendly, he organised a special romantic dinner on the oceanfront with Samoan music and seafood to match a perfect sunset. The weather we had was brilliant and above all can't wait to return to Samoa. The people are exceptionally nice and willing to assist wherever needed. The only downfall when visiting Samoa that we found was that flights from Sydney arrive and leave very early in the morning, and for this reason we'd advise you to pre-advise Le Vasa so they can pick you up and or have a room ready for you once you arrive. Above all we'd like to personally Thank Tony and the crew for giving us a relaxing and memorable Honeymoon to a magic and beautiful part of the world. Chris and Ange
