I remember someone was asking about travelling to Samoa maybe for a honeymoon, maybe not, maybe I dreamt it.

Well I am going there next month, so if anyone wants to know anything, let me know and I will keep my eye out for it.

I have had alook in old posts, but cant find anything. I hope I didnt dream it. he he he

I asked.

I was reading your previous post and mentioned that I wouldn't mind hearing more about what Samoa was like when you return.

We booked our honeymoon there cos we got a great deal, but we don't really know what there is to see or any "must do" things ... so any information will be great!

We'll be staying at Agie Grey's Lagoon Resort.

Was with Orient Pacific, but I have just found out, I didnt get confirmed on it. Damn Damn Damn.

I found out for sure on Monday, but at the moment looks very unlikely. That is so mean of them to build my hopes up like that and let me down sad.gif

Hey Kils.

Samoa was nice, but very different to what I expected. I think I was expecting the cook islands or Fiji.

To me, it seemed pretty untouched by tourism. There is a second Island there, starts with S. Forgotton it now, but you will see it in brochures and stuff. It was nice there, and heaps to see. Resort called Stephensons was really nice.

On the main land, Sinalei is gorgeous, but quiet expensive, coconuts is nice, but very very relaxing. Not alot to do, and it is a very small resort. There is another nice one, but also very small. Apparently they told us Matt Le Blanc stays there. I think it only had about 5 rooms. Might be a bit too secluded though. I would get bored there.

I have heaps and heaps of photos of all the resorts, but I am so lazy, I havent uploaded them onto my computer yet. I am a shocker.

If you have any specifics, ask away and I will tell you what I can remember.

Donna.

Yeah, second island is called Savaii.

Sounds perfect for us, we want something untouched much by tourism, and def. don't want something like Fiji. We have been to Fiji with friends etc, and it's great, btu not what we're after for our honeymoon!

Did you stay in Coconuts? That's where we're looking at, it looks great for us, small, relaxing (perfect for after the wedding, which I know will be stressful due to fiance's family etc!!) etc.

Also, did you only stay at Stevensons on Savaii?

Thanks!

Hey Kils

Yeah, Savaii, thats it.

We didnt stay at coconuts, we just had a look at it, and spent the afternoon there. It is very laid back and relaxing, so if that is what you are after, perfect. The rooms there are so gorgeous too. I fell in love with them. What room type are you looking at.

At Savaii, we didnt acutally stay at Stephensons, we just saw it. We stayed somewhere called Tanu Tanu. They were basically Fales which is like a wooden floor, slightly elevated, with only a light and mattress on the floor, and a mossie net. Then there are flap things that you can pull down around the outside. Was fantastic. I think it is only a 2 star, but it was so much fun, I loved it there. The food there was yucko, but the resort was so cool. Back to basics.

I have no idea how to put a picture in here, but if I work it out, I will post a pic of the room we stayed in at Savaii.

Yay, I worked out how to do a picture.

This was our room when we stayed in Savaii. Was so much fun. Kind of like camping.

Thanks Donna!!

Yeah, we're planning on staying in an Over-the-water fale. Looking forward to waking up looking at the water!

We're going to stay on Savaii for 2 nights, probably in one of the fale places, Tanu Tanu sounds good, the only worry I have in staying in a fale is my valuables, not that we'll have that much with us, but I don't want to have to worry about my camera/money etc while we swim?

Hey Kils.

The overwater Fales at Coconuts were really nice. I loved them. From what I remember, you cant get into the water from your room, was pretty high up, but gorgeous rooms, and there were only two of them. I have some photos, but havent put them on my computer yet. Slack Slack.

Tanu Tanu was ok with your stuff. We just put everything in our suitcase, and kept it locked at all times. It is right on the beach, you are pretty much camping on the beach. A few things about the resort though. Like I said it is about a 1star property I think. They have the public showers, (like when you go camping), and only one shower for females, and one for males. It is a cold water shower as well. I know, arghhhhhhhhhh, but it wasnt that bad. Quiet refreshing. The best way I can describe it to you is Camping.

Other than that one, Stevensons was really nice. There was another one, I think Le Lagato which was nice too.

Like I said, if you have any questions, just ask and I will tell you what I can remember.

Donna.
