Review of Vai Villas
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Oct 2015via mobile
Newly opened fituafe's indigenous vai villas is a hidden gem on Upolu's southern coast. We stumbled upon it looking for a place to hire a canoe and ended up staying for 2 days. It is amazingly cheap, has beautiful accommodation , amazing food, stunning scenery and wildlife, but what makes vai villas unique is how u are welcomed to engage in the village and the Samoan culture. you are made to feel part of the place. Highlights for us was paddling out to a deserted beach at dawn and making coconut cream for our dinner. visit before everyone else discovers vai villas!

Reviewed 29 September 2015

The hotel is located on the fresh water with Mangrove Forest. The buildings and cottages are built with Samoan traditional architecture carefully arranged and spend the night in comfortable bedroom. From the balcony, we can observe fresh water fish and birds playing in and on the water. The hotel has kayaks for the visitors to go paddling in the Mangrove Forest to the beach where Turtle lay eggs. The owner family are most friendly and wonderful to talk with. We can experience Samoan dance night as well.

Relaxing atmosphere and food is great with Samoan tradition.
Away from bustle and we can enjoy total relaxation and the nature.
