Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Le Lagoto Resort & Spa, Fagamalo, Savaii
A quality little resort with a surprising range of services and facilities in what is a fairly remote location. The beach, which is off to one side of the bungalows, is beautiful and the lagoon out front is perfect for swimming at any phase of the tide. Le Lagoto has a lovely horizon pool and because the lagoon swimming is so good out front, guests enjoying the pool, will often have the pool to themselves!

All the resort buildings are like works of art – a pleasant fusion of traditional Samoan and contemporary architecture. The big open-style restaurant fale has a wide deck out front which is a perfect spot to take in the spectacular sunsets, the separate resort bar provides a special view out over the horizon pool to the lagoon beyond and the “Sunset Spa”, while providing privacy for treatments, is almost on the beach. In recent times Le Lagoto’s owners have upgraded the bar and pool areas with new lounge/pod seating and umbrellas.  The external decks (restaurant and lower deck) have been freshly painted and the wooden jetty and stair access to the lagoon has been renewed. In the bungalows, the decks have been replaced and freshly painted incorporating a new design. Removal of the balustrades has created an open, obstruction-free space from which to enjoy uninterrupted views out to the lagoon. (Privacy between the bungalows is still maintained via the lush garden surrounds).  Bungalow linens have been upgraded (new bed covers and duvets), and the in-bungalow furniture has been reupholstered.  As part of the upgrade, all accommodation units now have cable TV with 25 channels.

Le Lagoto is something of a “personality resort”. It isn’t unusual to find individual staff members providing all sorts of different services to guests, everything from mixing cocktails, waiting tables and taking guided tours of Savaii. With only 10 accommodation units it is usual for staff to immediately know you by name.

The resort has a 2-night minimum stay policy, but, in our opinion 2 nights is not nearly long enough to really get the most out of a stay at Le Lagoto. 

Le Lagoto is a romantic spot for a honeymoon and they also specialise in weddings and will happily arrange a very special wedding even if the wedding party only includes a bride and groom. Of course, arrangements for bigger weddings are also available and Our Wedding Specialist has full details.

Room rates include:
 • Daily tropical breakfast
 • Complimentary use of the resort’s kayaks
 • Complimentary use of the resort's Paddle Boards.
 • Two 15-minute massages per booking

A meal plan is available and the resort’s Vailili Restaurant serves great food. There is a Pizza shop just across the road which will deliver direct to your fale and Savaii Lagoon Resort’s restaurant is just along the beach. A local convenience store and a Padi Dive shop complete the nearby off-resort facilities.

Wifi access (paid) is available at selected spots around the resort.

What Le Lagoto Resort & Spa Say About Themselves
“Talofa Lava... 

and a Warm Welcome to Le Lagoto Beach Resort

Located on a secluded white, sandy beach fringed by coconut palms and crystal clear waters, we are a boutique resort which offers all the modern conveniences of a large resort in an intimate, idyllic setting. 

We're the ultimate one-stop relaxation spot, where you can while away the hours soaking up the sun and tropical views, or refresh your body and soul in our brand new infinity pool. Let the sand tickle your feet as you stroll along the powdery soft beach just a stone's throw away, then get our friendly staff to treat you to a thirst quenching cocktail, or treat your palate with our scrumptious restaurant fare and at night, fall asleep to the sound of palms swaying in the breeze in your Samoan-style fale. 

There's no better way to unwind completely than by having your body and senses lulled into a state of bliss at our spa, Bodyworks. We offer a range of massages and beauty treatments - from body scrubs, waxing and hand and foot care, to cooling treatments for sunburnt skin. 

Perhaps our most popular treatment is the Samoan fofo (massage). The traditional technique we use is firm to the touch, includes a lot of slow, circular movements and accesses numerous acupressure points around the body. Any tightness in your body will be well gone after your treatment.

For eons, Samoans have used nature's bounty to help heal, soothe and nourish skin, and to lift our spirits. Products we use at Bodyworks include virgin coconut oil (great for massaging and nourishment), the Tiare flower (to revive the soul with its alluring aroma) and papaya, which is rich in vitamins and especially good for sunburn.

It is with good reason (and much pride) that we call ourselves Le Lagoto – Samoan for 'sunsets'. Our sunsets are simply sensational!”

Your Accommodation Options
Le Lagoto accommodation is all individual high quality Samoan-style fales. The 10 Fales are arranged in two rows with 5 fales in each row and each is of the same design and high standard. The five fales in the front row are designated Beachfront Bungalows and the five fales in the row behind are known as Oceanview Bungalows. The Beachfront Bungalows have unobstructed views of the lagoon from their patio verandas. The Oceanview Bungalows are staggered behind and provide good lagoon views between the Beachfront Bungalows. The first impression of the bungalows is that they appear close together, however, due to the thoughtful way they have been designed, the perceived closeness just isn’t a problem for occupants.

Immediately in front of the fales there is a natural rock wall which leads directly to the lagoon. A wooden stairway with around 20 steps allows guests comfortable access to the lagoon. The beach runs off the side of this rock wall in front of the pool, restaurant and spa.

Like the lobby, restaurant and bar, the accommodation bungalows are works of art. Each one is a traditional oval shape with high, native timber-lined ceilings and exposed natural beams which have been tied together in the way Samoan fales have been built for decades. The walls are also lined in native timber and the wooden floor is covered with finely woven Samoan mats. The fales have timber slate roofs. Each one has a covered veranda out front which is big enough to hold 2 chairs and 2 sun-loungers. There is a modern ensuite bathroom. All fales are spacious and air-conditioned; although for most of the year, the high ceilings, the open-plan nature of the room and the banks of louvre windows provide natural cooling and air-conditioning isn’t really necessary.

Minimum Stay Policy:
The Resort requires a minimum 2 nights stay year-round.

Getting to and from Le Lagoto Resort
We are very impressed with the arrangements Le Lagoto make to ensure a hassle-free arrival and departure transfer from their property. Guests have a choice of the “General” transfer or an “Accompanied” transfer (at a reasonable additional cost over the General Transfer). 

The General Transfer
To fit your package arrangements, we organise the necessary transfer either from your Upolu accommodation or direct from the airport to the Upolu Mulifanua Wharf and a ferry ticket for the 90-minute ferry crossing to Savaii’s Salelologa Wharf.  At Salelologa Wharf, a Le Lagoto staff member will meet you and provide a resort transfer to your hotel. This is the “General Transfer” arrangement. 

The Accompanied Transfer
For the “Accompanied Transfer”, a Le Lagoto staff member will travel over to Upolu and meet guests at the Mulifanua Wharf, assist with baggage and finding a seat on the ferry, assist with disembarkation at Salelologa Wharf Savaii, then travel with guests to Le Lagoto. The cost is a little higher for the Accompanied Transfer, but it can be much more convenient to be assisted in this way.  Our Specialists are happy to quote both options. The Accompanied Transfer is not available for guests travelling solo.

Le Lagoto have Rental Cars on-site and these can either be booked through Our Specialists as a part of your holiday package arrangements or reserved direct with Le Lagoto once you arrive.
