Vaitogi Village, Tutuila Island, American Samoa

“The Turtle & Shark Lodge is edged on two sides by water, with the Pacific Ocean to the South, and Larson's Cove to the West. With a great view, comfortable facilities, and an excellent, secluded location, the Turtle & Shark Lodge is perfect for the for the casual tourist seeking a warm and familiar home-like place where they can kick off their shoes and enjoy a moment of rest and respite.

The lodge is named after the local legend of the Turtle & Shark, and while there are many versions of the legend, they all agree on one thing, and that is the location where the Turtle & Shark can be called and seen. This special place is located at the very start of the road that leads back to the lodge.

To the South and West of the lodge, the Pacific Ocean's blue waves crash on high rocky cliffs. Just visible from the cove side of the lodge are the beaches of Larson's Cove. The lodge is only a half hour hike from the beaches.

Just in front of the lodge is a lookout over the blow hole. Grab a chair during high tide and sit outside and feel the rumble of the ocean just before the blow hole erupts. When the blow hole is active during a particularly high tide, it can be seen to be throwing water more than 50 feet high, and often quite a bit higher”.

OUR Thoughts on Turtle & Shark Lodge
This is a must! A tropical setting where you can relax on your own balcony and enjoy the scenery and spectacular views overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy the blow hole at your door step, or watch the whales from the balcony that are travelling by August through November.

Your Accommodation Options
The Lodge is on two levels, with three bedrooms per level. Both levels are laid out as three bedroom apartments with each having a common area consisting of a living room, full sized kitchen and laundry. Each room has its own ensuite, apart from Room 2 and 3 on the top level that are required to share bathroom facilities. The Lodge is ideal when travelling with friends or family when you can accommodate each bedroom however should you just require the one or even two bedrooms then we can request that you have the apartment to yourselves, but this is entirely at the discretion of the owner and subject to availability.
