Meet and live with the locals

The Dave Parker Eco Lodge is a unique property positioned on a mountainside, overlooking Apia. From the lodge you can visit waterfalls, caves and natural pools in the surrounding rainforest. Go from forest to beach at the Samoa Marina Hotel, housed in a colonial building and close to the main dining, shopping and social areas of Apia.
No walls no worries
Staying in a beach fale with a palm frond roof and mozzie nets for walls is an experience that few places in the world can provide. They allow you to become completely immersed in beach life, located only metres from the water and with showers under palm trees.
You need to head at least 45 minutes out of the city to find quality beach fale accommodation such as Taufua Beach Fales, Manusina Beach Fales and Vaiula Beach Fales. You’re guaranteed to wake up with the ocean right outside just waiting for you to explore, swim, snorkel, surf or head out on a boat.
