SHERATON SAMOA BEACH RESORT
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Sheraton Samoa Beach Resort, Mulifanua, Upolu, Samoa
This highly-rated family resort is a great base for a Samoa holiday. Located just a 5-minute drive from Samoa’s Faleolo International Airport, a 45-minute drive into Apia and a 5-minute drive or 20-30-minute walk to Mulifanua Wharf where the ferries depart for Savaii Island.  

The 133 rooms and suites are in located in 6 two-level blocks (3 blocks on each side of the central hotel facility), so every room is handily located to the restaurants etc. Every bed in the resort is the new Sheraton Sweet Sleeper™ bed which really are superbly comfortable.  Apart from fronting a beautiful beach, the Resort has a stunning, big, meandering, multi-level lagoon-style swimming pool which incorporates a kids’ shallow pool off to one side and a swim-up bar. Every room has a view out over the lagoon and ocean and catches both the sunrise and the sunset. There are sun-loungers literally everywhere. The two stretches of white-sand beach out front are liberally scattered with thatched beach sun shelters.  The seabed on this part of the island is not known for its marine life, but there is still pleasant snorkelling to be enjoyed.

The well-equipped gym and the beautiful spa are great features. The resort’s restaurants provide a good range of dining options. The closest alternative dining options are in Apia, a 45-minute drive away, so having such good restaurants on site provides guests with plenty of dining choices. The Apolima Fale Restaurant serves the splendid buffet breakfast as well as hosting the spectacular Cultural Nights for dinner and show each Tuesday and Friday. The a la carte South Pacific Restaurant is open daily for lunch and dinner and provides the option of dining outdoors or in the courtyard bar area.  From the South Pacific Restaurant enjoy stunning views of the ocean and the island of Savaii off in the distance. Light lunches and dinners are also available at the Solent Cocktail Bar and quick bites are a feature of the casual Pool Bar between 10:00am and 6:00pm daily.

In mid-2016, the resort upgraded its water-sports operation by contracting services to "Pure Ocean" an operation located within the resort grounds.  Pure Ocean offers a great range of sports facilities. Enjoy kayaks and paddle boats. Hobie Cats, Stand-up Paddle Boards, Snorkel and Diving Tours etc - all are available for guests at a reasonable hire charge.

The Resort is handy to the International Airport and the sounds of arriving and departing aircraft can be heard briefly from time to time. Somehow, the aircraft sounds seem to add to the sense of occasion and the ambience of a stay here.
