Our Resort Report

Temporary arrangements for access to Lalomanu Beach From Aga Reef Resort
During Tropical Cyclone Gita (February 2018) a landslip occurred between Aga Reef Resort & Lalomanu Beach resulting in the blockage of the road.
Updated 31 October 2019:
“The  road to Lalomanu Beach is still much the same.  Aga Reef make a point of advising guests (especially those with rental cars) to be aware and reduce speed because there are no warning road signs erected should they choose to take that road.  Otherwise there is the very safe detour road available which is above the mountain and takes slightly longer to get to Lalomanu Beach”

OUR Thoughts on Aga Reef Resort, Main South Coast Road, Lalomanu, Upolu, Samoa
Not all that many years ago, this part of Upolu, Samoa’s main island, was somewhat off-the-beaten-track for holidaymakers (of course, the locals knew all about it and many had beach fales out here for weekend stays away from Apia), now, overseas visitors are catered for as well and more and more are enjoying the scenery and serenity of Upolu’s south-east coast. Aga Reef Resort is located near Lalomanu Village in a beautiful secluded coastal area where the road runs almost beside the lagoon and the amazing tropical jungle on the cliffs behind seems to brush the shore. This is a perfect setting for a relaxing Samoan holiday.   

Aga Reef Resort is located along the lagoon front and has a line of Waterfront Villas above the rocky shore at one end and the reception, restaurant and bar at the other end.  The restaurant opens on to a lovely wooden deck which provides the option of indoor or outdoor dining. Their horizon swimming pool is set into the deck above the beach and the white sand beach is accessed directly off the deck by steps beside the pool.  There is also a sandy cove immediately in front of the pool down 9 concrete steps, the lower the tide the more sand there is to be found here.  This cove  provides a sheltered spot to snorkel and kayak and is a great place from which to enter the Resort Lagoon and the perfectly clear lagoon waters, home to a plethora of tropical fish living amongst the coral rocks on the lagoon floor. On the other side of the resort's lagoon, there is a little island which is accessed by a short causeway and bridge from the restaurant area.  This island (Meti's Island) is a signature feature of Aga Reef Resort and it is the location of the 3 “Island Villas” which face in towards the resort lagoon.  Further along from the Island Villas, the island features a very pleasant sandy point complete with Meti's bar and a salt-water swimminmg pool - the perfect venue for the Aga Resort Weddings. 

Ever since its opening, the resort’s restaurant has received rave reviews.  The tariff includes a tropical continental buffet breakfast comprising fresh fruits, cereal, scones, muffins, breads and spreads. The complimentary breakfast is served at the main Tualupetu Restaurant between 8:00am and 11:00am. Cooked breakfast is available at additional cost. From 01 April 2020, the breakfast is upgraded to a daily a-la-carte breakfast which includes a mixed fruit board plus one choice from the breakfast menu. 

The resort offers bicycles for hire and cycling is a pleasant way to enjoy the many nearby places of interest.

Included in the room tariff from 01 April 2020:
● Daily a-la-carte breakfast including a mixed fruit
     board & one choice from the breakfast menu
● The use of snorkelling equipment and kayaks.
     (Snorkels, masks and flippers)
● A complimentary 10-minute neck & shoulder
     massage per person.

Your Accommodation Options
This great little near-new Samoan property is sparkling fresh and offers a surprising number of accommodation options - 8 Hotel Rooms in a two-level walk-up block, Waterfront Villas, Island Villas and one splendid VIP Villa with a private plunge pool.

The décor of the Villas and the Hotel Rooms all follows a theme – a timbered appearance on the external walls and a good-sized balcony with the timber theme continued on the interior outside walls and a beautiful local timber-plank polished floor. The internal walls have a fresh, light-painted look which complements the wooden joinery, the floors and outside walls.  The Villas have vaulted timbered ceilings.

All accommodation is air-conditioned and every room and villa includes tea/coffee facilities, an under-counter fridge, TV and safe.  Villas also have a ceiling fan in addition to the air-conditioning.

Room Categories
Bullet Ocean Breeze Hotel Rooms:
The Hotel Room block is located on a slight rise behind the Waterfront Villas.  The Hotel Rooms are reasonably close to the road but there is a high hedge shielding the resort from the road, so road noise is not an issue in the Hotel Rooms.  There is a leafy view from the 4 ground floor rooms and a filtered view of the ocean; the 4 upper floor rooms have a little better view of the ocean over and between the Waterfront Villas which are located out front and a little lower down, right on the water. 
Hotel Rooms have interconnecting doors which can be opened wide which makes them ideal for a family sharing 2 rooms or for a couple seeking suite-style accommodation.
Each ensuite bathroom has a shower.
Maximum Occupancy: 2 guests
Existing Bedding: 1 Super King Bed or 2 Single Beds
Additional Bedding: No additional bedding accommodated

Bullet Waterfront Villas:
The 4 Waterfront Villas are individual buildings spread along the front of the resort lagoon.  Each Waterfront Villa is an open-plan space with the bathroom at the back and a beautiful big veranda/balcony out front which is almost over the water.  The whole Villa is raised a little off the ground on piles and from the interior of the Villa as well as from the balcony; guests get the feeling of floating above the lagoon.  The outlook is towards the resort’s own island and over the island to the natural lagoon and the reef and the ocean beyond.
Ensuite bathrooms have a shower.
Maximum Occupancy: 2 Adults and 1 Child aged 3 to 11 years.
Existing Bedding: 1 Super King Bed or 2 Single Beds
Additional Bedding: 1 Single Rollaway Bed can be added for a child sharing.

Bullet Island Villas:
The 3 Island Villas are similar in almost every aspect to the Ocean View Villas although where they differ is in the sundeck which runs off and below the veranda.  The outlook from the Island Villas is towards the resort and the Ocean View Villas on the other side of the Resort’s Lagoon. Island Villas are accessed via a bridge out front of the central hotel building. Bathrooms have a lovely Cleopatra-style free-standing bath as well as a shower.
Maximum Occupancy: 2 Adults and 1 Child aged 3 to 11 years.
Existing Bedding: 1 Super King Bed or 2 Single Beds
Additional Bedding: 1 Single Rollaway Bed can be added for a child sharing.

Bullet VIP Villa:
Located at the end of the row of Ocean View Villas, the VIP Villa is quite different in that it sits on a private lawn area which runs down to the beach.  The VIP Villa has a private plunge pool accessed directly from the wrap-around veranda on two sides of the Villa at the front. The view is superb – straight out to sea over the reef to the ocean.
Bathroom has a bath and a shower.
Maximum Occupancy: 2 Adults only
Existing Bedding: 1 Super King Bed
Additional Bedding: No additional bedding is accommodated.
