Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Taumeasina Island Resort, Apia, Upolu, Samoa
The building of this resort has been a major undertaking and the biggest new build in the environs of Apia for some years. We have visited a good number of times since it opened and continue to be very happy with the way the whole resort is operating. The quality of the resort is set at a 4.5 star standard and the product delivers on that standard. Everything is sparkling and near new and the staff from the top down, go out of their way to make sure every guest has a perfect experience.

The little island on which the resort has been built is a real treasure.  It has a superb location 2.5kms from the centre of Apia, yet the guest experience is of holidaying on a much more remote holiday island.  Guests staying at Taumeasina Island Resort have 24-hour access to Apia across the 90 metre causeway which joins the island to the mainland, so it’s an ideal location for both business and leisure travellers.

This a great spot for a wedding and Wedding Packages are offered.  Weddings may be held anywhere on the resort grounds and beaches as well as in the darling little Wedding Chapel.  One of the fun-benefits of having a wedding in Samoa lies in the country’s close proximity to the International Date Line meaning that your wedding will be the first to be celebrated anywhere in the world that day!

Since the resort opening, the newly-planted tropical gardens on the reclaimed section of the island have come on a treat and are fast catching up with the established lush tropical landscape evident around the hotel buildings and the 2 beautiful sandy beach bays.

In these days of additional resort fees, exit cleaning surcharges and the like adding extra costs for travellers once they arrive at a resort, it is refreshing to find so many services included in the tariff at Taumeasina.

● Complimentary use of the Fitness Centre which is

     treadmills, exercise bikes and weight sets.
