Just a gem this little place, if you want to step away from the usual resort buzz! It has everything we want, small, private,personal, clean, youre not just a room number! The place is run by the loveliest owner/operator family who go out of their way to help in any way. It doesnt have a restaurant but Lupe and Dean are up with all the current "eats" in town! And theres plenty!! Their local themed breakfasts are the best in town as Lupe sources the seasonal market products and throws in local breakfast dishes ( vaisalo) my Aussie mates just adore!!
If you're looking for privacy with a homey feel then Vaea Hotel is ideal. We had a decent size room, bed is comfortable, fully aircon, clean with a great patio looking out to Mt Vaea. We were offered bottles of water on arrival and that was such a warm welcome on a hot afternoon. Owners, Dean & Lupe are fantastic hosts and very accomodating from the day we arrived. Both had good knowledge of places to see and where to go for great food. We hired a car and parking was never a problem at the property. We really enjoyed great breakfast and smell of local coffee in the morning ending with evening of cocktails. Try out their magaritas! Although there is no restaurant on site, there are plenty of restaurants and off road BBQ nearby. Just down the road is the anazing Coffee Roaster, check it out! Sadly we didn't get to try the swimming pool as we were too busy but we had a great time sitting near the pool admiring the spectacular garden. Vaea hotel is in a great location and only a short walk to Apia (5mins). Already our favourite. Vaea Hotel is a perfect choice for accommodation if you want a private, charming and a very clean hotel with accommodating staff. Excellent hosts, highly recommended. Thank you Dean & Lupe and we'll see you again!!!…
We loved our stay at Vaea Hotel. Our room had a beautiful outlook, it was very clean and comfortable. The pool was lovely, and the owners were fantastic - so helpful and kind. This hotel was great value for money, a nice breakfast was provided too. It was a little oasis in the city of Apia.
We stayed a couple of nights at the Vaea Hotel and very happy with everything. Nice clean room, quiet and good location close to town. Lovely, friendly and helpful owners who made us feel welcome and comfortable during our stay at their hotel. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended! Thanks Lupe, Dean and kids Regards Sulu & Chris
I recently stayed here with my aunty and it was amazing! The cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel in general was amazing! Not to mention the fantastic hospitality from Lupe and Dean! They were always great with their knowledge of the island and suggestions of where to journey to. The location of the hotel is great because your right in town and close to many restaurants. Oh definitely got to say Lupe makes a great koko laisa!! I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Lupe and Dean.
