BEST FOR FAMILIES 

RESORT 

Family is at the forefront of daily life at Saletoga Sands. It is run by New Zealand couple Lou and Gav, who dreamed of opening a resort and fell in love with Samoa. They have cultivated a wonderful community with locals from village Matatufu. In fact, you can join in a vibrant Sunday church service and meet your neighbours. Swimming at breathtaking beaches, snorkelling, kayaking, playing beach volleyball, joining tours and walks and celebrating with live entertainment at a fiafia night are some of the complementary extra touches that make this personal, boutique resort special. Enjoy delicious meals from the resort restaurant, or for something more casual, dig in to a delectable wood-fired pizza.


DESTINATION

Upolu is the second largest of the Samoan islands but is intimate, pristine and private. Less than 90 minutes from the airport, Saletoga Sands Resort is located on the site of an old coconut plantation and is surrounded by tropical vegetation and a picture-perfect beach. The famous To Sua Ocean Trench is just five minutes away from Saletoga Sands by car.

You can book a car and arrange a Samoan Drivers License right at the front desk. In fact, you can even arrange a picnic hamper to keep you going on your day trips.

The Papase’ea Sliding Rocks – essentially nature’s own waterpark – are hugely popular with water-babies who like the great outdoors. At To Sua, climb down a 30 metre ladder into a blue swimming hole with a jumping platform and turquoise lava tunnels. Togitogiga Waterfall and the Palolo Deep Marine Reserve (a deep hole in the reef you must swim to from the beach) offer once-in-a-lifetime swims suited to adventurous teens. You can catch a quick boat out to Namua Island, hand-feed wild turtles in a pond, or peruse the local handcrafts at Apia markets.


GROWN UP’S CORNER 

Two free massages are included in your deal – a delightful way to wind down into holiday mode. Indulge in a relaxing spa treatment or sweat it out at the resort gym facilities. Saletoga Sands offers a babysitting service meaning grown-ups can make use of the pool bar.

SALETOGA SANDS RESORT & SPA

Saletoga Sands is made special by its unique inclusions. You will be welcomed and farewelled in style. The pristine sandy beaches are combined with the chance to watch local dances or join the community at a Sunday church service. Kick back in your bungalow, or go snorkelling and kayaking. Hire your own car for a self-drive tour or join a guided one to To Sua Ocean Trench or Togatogiga Waterfall. Added extras like free sarongs (lava lavas) and exciting fiafia dinners and performances elevate Saletoga Sands to a cut above the rest.
