Return to Paradise
If you’re after the ultimate Samoan experience, I would highly recommend Return to Paradise which is owned and run by a local Samoan family. Staying true to their roots, they offer guests an insight into local culture and cuisine. Breakfast is a spread of fluffy buns soaked in coconut cream, exotic fruits and Samoan coconut porridge. After a beautiful breakfast, the ocean is calling and its mere footsteps away from the breakfast bar so you needn’t travel far. With its own private beach lapped by turquoise waters, you can happily spend hours under the hot Samoan sun cooling off whenever it gets too much. Minutes away you’ll discover colourful underwater gardens and giant clams in sapphire blues and rich oranges. The beach bar is the perfect place to watch the sun go down with views overlooking the ocean and crashing waves and all the laid-back vibes you’d want on holiday.
