Attractions near Tanoa Tusitala Hotel
Treasure Island author tour
Robert Louis Stevenson spent the last five years of his life in Samoa in search of a tropical climate to ease his ailing health. This famous Scottish author – of such classics as Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Treasure Island – lived in a beautiful colonial homestead near Apia.
Take a one-hour guided tour of the restored house where he wrote no fewer than 14 books in just four years. Then walk through the rainforest to visit his resting place – choose from the steep but strenuous 45-minute walk or the easier one-hour option. This Tusitala (teller of tales) remains well-respected by the Samoan people and the museum is testament to his positive local relationships.
Explore Apia’s markets
Apia is the gateway to Samoa and over a fifth of the nation’s population live in the capital. A half-day island tour from Tanoa Tusitala Hotel will take you to the authentic food markets where locals shop for tropical fruits, spices and other delights, after which you’ll continue on to the flea market a short walk away.
This is the place to find that special treasure to take home, whether it's a colourful lava-lava (sarong), hand-carved kava bowl, baskets or jewellery. You’ll interact with many locals going about their day, and finish off with a visit to the Robert Louis Stevenson museum.
