STEVENSONS AT MANASE
Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Stevensons at Manase, North Coast Road, Savaii, Samoa
Fronting a beautiful golden-sand beach on Savaii’s north coast, Stevenson’s at Manase is a perfect spot for a Savaii holiday.  Self-rated 3 Star, Stevenson’s offers a surprisingly wide range of facilities for a property with a total of only 21 rooms.  All accommodation units are on the beach frontage as is the Beach Bar and pool deck, Bentleys Brasserie, the resort swimming pool and the recreational fale.  The car park, Reception, Breakfast Fale and Tusitala Restaurant are located immediately across the road.

Stevenson’s is handily located in the centre of Manase Village with Tanu Beach Fales on one side and Safotu Village within easy walking distance.  Safotu Village is the village where many of the staff at Stevenson’s come from and pleasant walking tours of the village are conducted by the staff for guests.  There are good fish and chips and pizza outlets nearby and the family-style Tanu Beach Fales dining is another interesting option for dinner.

Many interesting sights are within proximity of Stevenson’s.  Turtles frequent the lagoon immediately outside the resort but to get up close and swim with turtles, Satoalepai is the place to do this and it is only 3km away from Stevenson’s.  Dive Savaii is only a 5-minute drive away, the amazing Saleaula Lava Field with its buried villages and churches is only 15-minutes’ drive.  Ten minutes’ drive from the resort brings you to the 1 kilometre long Dwarf’s Cave lava tube.  Vehicles are available for rental from the resort or we can organise this for you in advance if you prefer.

There are many sites worth visiting on Savaii and Stevenson’s at Manase is a great spot to base yourself to take them all in.  However, the resort itself is also an attraction with several dining options and a very interesting array of accommodation types.  The air-conditioned Suites and Villas are very nicely equipped but it is the “Euro Fales” which are well worth a special mention.  We offer several resorts which have open-sided traditional fales, but the fales at Stevenson’s are special.  Not only do you get to try a traditional beachfront Samoan Beach Fale with the normal thatched roof, drop-down woven leaf panel walls and no front door, but the fales at Stevenson’s also have several “mod-cons” in the form of electric lights, power points, a mini fridge and a fan, and, something quite unusual - a lockable ensuite bathroom.

Included in the tariff at Stevensons at Manase
● Daily full buffet breakfast
● Complimentary use of kayaks
● Complimentary use of paddle boards
● Daily cultural demonstrations

Your Accommodation Options
The Euro Fales (traditional Samoan Fale) overlook the ocean from their open-air decks. Awake to the sound of the ocean lapping at the shore only metres from your doorstep. The Euro Fales are sheltered by flowering tropical trees and coconut palms – there is a covered patio off each fale. Relax on your bed, take in the exceptional ocean views and settle into the true relaxation of island life.

The 10 new, contemporary-style Villa Rooms are located directly on the beach – each with beautiful lagoon views. As with all room designs at Stevenson’s, they feature local materials such as lava rock feature walls, a thatched roof and a unique elei printed ceiling. Villa Rooms are presented in Samoan duplex style (2 to a building) and each duplex features interconnecting doors which, when unlocked make this accommodation type ideal for a family or for 2 couples travelling together.

The 6 beachfront Suites offer the opportunity to really splash out on your accommodation.  Ranging from 28m2 to 79m2 in size, each one is a little different, but still follows the overall theme of Stevenson’s with a pleasing blend of modern and traditional Samoan styles.  Suites are al located in one beachfront block.

Getting to and from Stevensons at Manase
To travel to Savaii from Apia, guests will first transfer from their Upolu accommodation or the International Airport to Mulifanua Wharf by transfer vehicle, then take the inter-island car and passenger ferry across to Salelologa Wharf on Savaii where they are met by a representative of Stevensons and transferred by resort vehicle to the north coast of Savaii to check-in to Stevensons at Manase.  The journey between Salelologa Wharf and Stevensons takes just on 1 hour. Return transfers are completed the same way but in reverse order.

Our recommendation is that Savaii-bound holidaymakers should stay at least 1 night on Upolu between their international flights and taking the ferry between the islands.  All the necessary transfers can be organised by Our Travel Specialists and included in holiday package arrangements.  We are very happy to advise and cost the various options available to you.
