Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa, South Coast, Upolu, Samoa
There is a very relaxed and a very Samoan feeling about this Resort with its 26 individual fales and suites.  It has a great location on Upolu’s South Coast, a beachside restaurant, a Day Spa and beautiful gecko-shaped pool with a swim-up bar.  Over recent times, Coconuts Beach Club has been extensively renewed and updated while successfully managing to retain and enhance the many pleasant Samoan characteristics for which it has been known over the years.

The accommodation is a tasteful blend of traditional Samoan style with modern European comforts.  There’s nothing “false” about the way the fales have been constructed with their natural high timber beam roofs and lava rock feature walls teamed up with lounge furniture and bed frames of natural bamboo. The ensuite bathroom showers are a replica of the many beautiful natural waterfalls found in the centre of Upolu. Guests really enjoy the sunken shower base and the waterfall-style shower cascading down from the natural rock wall.

Like many Samoan villages, Coconuts is built around the beach.  There is a nice sloping beach access to the lagoon although the sand outside the Beach Fales and beside the restaurant and the pool area has been levelled behind a low natural rock wall which is great for the comfortable placement of beach sun-loungers. The swimming pool complex is right in the centre of the resort on the beach front.  Facing the pool from the lagoon, Mika’s Restaurant is to the right. The accommodation units are off to the left, either on the beach front, over the water or positioned back a little from the pool.

Saturday - Samoan Cultural Day is another highlight and a chance to interact with the local villagers as well as the chance to participate in and learn about local food preparation and the many uses of the local produce. The day culminates in an enthusiastic fia fia night.  It’s a most enjoyable day.

What Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa Say About Themselves
Coconuts is a truly unique resort, with distinctive design features, world-class facilities, and an incomparably relaxing environment. Built of local materials by Samoan craftsmen, the resort was planned to harmonize with its environmental and cultural surroundings, and offer guests the true flavor of Samoa. 

Coconuts is about an experience, not just a place to spend the night. There are many resort activities on offer, including village and island tours, scuba diving (by arrangement), surfing guides, yoga, snorkeling, kayaking, boating in traditional Samoan “paopao” outrigger canoes, and excursions into the adjacent mangrove estuary. For those who wish to simply relax, there are the beaches and the wonderful gecko shaped swimming pool, complete with swim-up bar. And the beachside restaurant and bar offers what several magazines and guidebooks agree is the best food on the island. But more important are the unexpected opportunities: a stroll through the village with a staff member, a cup of cocoa with a new friend in their traditional Samoan home without walls, spending time with the local villagers and learning about their fascinating culture – experiences you simply don’t get elsewhere. 

Coconuts offers everything you expect in a boutique resort – intimate scale, personalized service, full spa facilities – and all in a setting of white sand beaches and turquoise lagoons as beautiful as you can imagine

Your Accommodation Options
Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa has a minimum 3 consecutive nights stay policy.

Although there are only 26 (all air-conditioned) accommodation units at Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa, there is a wide range of accommodation types which includes Treehouse Suites, 1 and 2 bedroom Beach Fales, the magnificent Royal Beach Villas and six (recently completely rebuilt) Over-The-Water Fales.

With the exception of the Treehouse Suites and the Over-The-Water Fales, the suites and villas all feature unique and very special bathrooms. The bathrooms are described as “open air” bathrooms. Each is very spacious and is enclosed on the outside by a high natural lava stone wall. Unlike many so-called “courtyard” bathrooms which are open to the sky, at Coconuts, the whole bathroom has an opaque roof which lets in a lot of natural light.  There is a screened space, which is approximately 40cm deep, between the roof and the top of the enclosing wall which allows air (but not insects!) to flow through – hence the “open air” description. This arrangement provides total bathing privacy while delivering a lovely outdoor feel. The bathrooms are lined throughout in natural stone and the sunken waterfall shower is a very pleasant feature. The Treehouse Suites and the Over-The-Water Fales have spacious, more conventional bathrooms featuring a subtle Samoan décor. 

Room Categories 
(In ascending order of tariff)

Bullet Treehouse Suites:
Located on gently rising ground up from the beach and the pool with unique views over a series of shallow ponds leading to the beach. These eight individual, spacious one room suites feature an entry vestibule, slate and hardwood floors and bamboo four-poster beds. The uniquely styled (recently refurbished) bathrooms offer a two-person bathtub-with-a-view and beautiful Quartzite stone floors and walls. There are enormous seven-meter wide decks with chaise lounges and hammocks for guests to enjoy the fabulous ocean view. The Treehouse Suites are located either on the ground floor or the first floor. Naturally, the first-floor suites have a more extensive view but the views from every Treehouse Suite is special.

Additional Bedding: No additional bedding accommodated.

Bullet 1 Bedroom Beachfront Fales:
The four 1 Bedroom Beach Fales are located directly on the beach frontage just meters from the water’s edge. They feature an open plan but split level design where the bedroom and bathroom are positioned up 4 steps above the lounge and the lounge opens directly on to a sizeable veranda. All fales have the unique open air bathrooms with lava-rock walls and a sunken shower nestled under a private “waterfall”. Finishing touches include thatched roofs, covered terraces facing the sea & island decor.

Bullet Over The Water Fales:

Something very special for Samoa.
Opened in June 2013 and rebuilt in 2016, the Over-the-Water Fales at Coconuts are built entirely on the lagoon, handy to the beach.  Each has a spacious bedroom and massive decks. A lounge area and the beautiful bathroom both open right on to the deck via bi-folding and sliding doors to provide a great indoor/outdoor flow.  The day bed in the lounge is replicated on the deck.
Here is what the Resort says about their fantastic new fales:-
“These six new Over-the-Water Fales are unique in design and fully embrace the seamless indoor/outdoor living experience so popular throughout Samoa. Situated as to maximize individual privacy, each Fale boasts amazing views of the beaches, lagoon, and ocean, with breathtaking sunset vistas. The absolute highlight of these unique Over-the-Water fales is the expansive decks, from which guests will enjoy a private retreat. Sun loungers and a day bed provide that perfect place to relax and enjoy the tropical surroundings. The large bedroom, with a king size bed, opens up onto the deck, but can be closed off with large glass sliding doors, for those guests wishing to use the air-conditioning. Just off the bedroom are doors that open to a small, mini-deck. The bathroom in the Fale embraces the open-air bathrooms made famous by Coconuts. Open to the expansive deck, the bathroom features an opaque ceiling that lets in lots of natural light. The double vanity is set next to the sunken tub that features a waterfall shower. These architecturally-designed Over-the-Water Fales are unlike any accommodation anywhere in the world. Guests will enjoy amazing vistas, privacy, and relaxation with a touch of luxury.”

Maximum Occupancy: 3 guests
Existing Bedding: 1 King Bed
Additional Bedding: 1 Rollaway Single Bed.

Bullet Royal Beach Villas:
The Royal Beach Villas occupy a corner site between the Beach Fales and the Treehouse Suites.  The Villas face over the pool and are virtually right on the beach. The 3 individual Villas are either booked as individual units or interconnected with one other villa or both other Villas to make an ideal accommodation option for an extended family or a group of friends travelling together. 
Quoting Coconuts Beach Club
The Royal Beach Villas are the most spacious suite of villas available in all of Samoa, if not the entire South Pacific. This complex of three villas is comprised of two one-story beach villas (Villa Pule and Villa Ali’i) flanking an immense, two-story central villa (Villa Matai). The two flanking villas each total over 600 sq. ft, including bedroom, sitting room, walk-in closet, writing alcove and large open-air style bathroom, complete with lava rock "waterfall" shower. The central fale is more than twice as spacious, and includes these same features as well as a second story private Observatory and balcony, which can also serve as additional sleeping quarters, accessed via an interior circular staircase. All three villas are architecturally unique with exterior walls of the living and bedrooms constructed entirely of poles and glass, split level design, exposed-beam pole ceilings and 180 degree views, all enhanced with local hardwoods, finely crafted lava rock walls and beautiful quartzite tile. These villas are connected via a covered bridge, and can be booked as an entire suite or individually, making it perfect for anything from one couple to families or groups of up to ten people total. This is the ultimate in Polynesian style with a touch of high class!”

Villa Matai (the Big Central Villa):
Maximum Occupancy: 5 Guests
Existing Bedding: 1 King Bed
Additional Bedding:  2 Single Beds can be added to the upstairs Observatory and a 3rd Single Bed can be added to the ground floor lounge area.
Bullet Villa Pule:  
Bullet Villa Alii:

Maximum Occupancy: 3 guests
Existing Bedding:  1 King Bed
Additional Bedding: 1 Single Bed can be added to the lounge area.

For a family group or a group of friends taking Villa Matai plus one or two of the flanking villas, there are considerable savings to be made over the individual prices.  Our Specialists have full details.

By combining the big central Villa Matai with one of the Flanking Villas there is a maximum occupancy of 8 guests
By Combining Villa (Villa Matai) with both Flanking Villas there is a maximum occupancy of 11 guests

Getting to and from Coconut's Beach Club

For guests staying at least 5 consecutive nights, Coconuts Beach Club provide complimentary inbound and outbound transfers between Upolu’s Faleolo International Airport and Coconut's Beach Club – transfers are provided by the resort. There is a reasonable transfer charge for guests staying 3 or 4 nights and this charge will be included in our package arrangements. Transfer time between the airport and Coconuts is approximately 45 minutes.

As with all resorts on the south coast of Upolu, there is always a question about whether to rent a car while you are at the resort in order to get around and see the sights, or to get over to Apia which is a 40-minute drive (approximately) across the Central Island Road.  Renting a car is always an option and Our Specialists will happily arrange a car booking for you.  However, Coconuts Beach Club have a very good alternative to consider.  Once you have settled in pop down to Reception at Coconuts and ask about their offer of the service of a private car with driver on an hourly cost basis to take you on private tours or visits to Apia.  This is an interesting alternative to a self-drive hire car as their driver will know all the local sights and highlights which are sometimes a little difficult to find on your own. 

Complimentary local bus tickets
If you are willing to try something a little different, there are colourful local buses which run irregular services between the South Coast Villages and Apia throughout the day.  Coconuts provide complimentary tickets to all guests for these buses to and from Apia Monday to Saturday and will advise you how best to use the service. It’s a colourful and safe way to experience something of the local life and can be fun if you have a slightly adventurous spirit!
