Our family of 28 booked into The Samoan Traditional Resort from Aug 28th to Sept 7th.
We could not have made a better choice, as we were treated like royalty from Alavine, Pale and their wonderful staff.
Right from day one when there were two vans and a truck for our luggage on arrival at Faleolo airport until we left on day 10, nothing or no request was too small or large.
My grand-daughter decided to get married at the another resort on the islands, and we had already asked Alavine if we could have the reception at our resort (Traditional Samoan Resort), so by the time we all came back from the ceremony Pale and his staff had set up food tables with table cloths, prepared the BBQ, and everything else that we needed. This included manning the bar for us until everyone had gone home (in the wee hours) and they then insisted on cleaning up afterwards. This was no mean feat and nothing was asked in return for all this hard work.
The rooms were spotless, we had hot water to burn, and the air conditioning units in the rooms were our life savers, where we could escape from the mid day heat. The vehicles that we rented were A1 and certainly gave us our freedom to roam around the islands.
While we have stayed in many resorts that were great… BUT the service we rec’d here was exceptional, and it was like staying with family but in luxury surroundings in the beautiful cool mountains, only 5-8 minutes from the centre of town…
Pale Thankyou for showing us FOB how to de-husk our coconuts !!!!
Thankyou Alavine & P?le, you have made our stay a memorable one, and one that our children and grandchildren will remember and talk about for the rest of their lives.
Our whole family was impressed and we no doubt are recommending your Resort to other people we know who are travelling to the beautiful islands of Samoa.

We stayed 7nights from 31st May to 6th June 2012 to be part of Samoa's 50th Independence Celebrations. We arrived at Samoa Holiday Homes and amazed how beautiful and private this place is, up in the heights of Ululoloa it was truly a place of peace and serenity. We couldn't have found a better place to stay, we were only 10mins from the city it was so convenient; and though it was so busy due to the celebrations it felt so good coming back to our home where we relaxed and enjoyed our time in the sun swimming in the pool. Everything we needed was in our lovely home it was gorgeous as we stayed in the family suites, with this Samoa Holiday Homes organized our rentduring it was perfect for the four of us. My sisters and I of New Lynn EFKS Fitness would like to thank Alavine and her staff for looking after us we have enjoyed our stay so much we are planning to return in 2013 woohoo this time round with our full Zumba Team! A big thanks to Pale and Terrance for being great host we miss you guys! Much apologies Alavine for not giving you a taste of our Zumba classes its obvious our holiday got the best of us but until then we will make it happen next time round. Ia fa'amanuia atu le Atua Ia outou uma. Alofaaga Henerietta, Wendy, Otila and Sefine ..... EFKS Angels.

Our family stayed at the SHH in Apr/May 2012 for around 3 weeks. We arrived early morning to Samoa and the shuttle bus was there to pick us up from the airport. We were welcomed by Alavine at the hotel who was very helpful and friendly. We were very pleased with the accommodation as well as our rental car we hired from them.
It's great you have your own cooking facilities not like many other hotel rooms. The convenience of buying your own food and cooking in your villa easy & cheap. The pool and the fale samoa were awesome also. Location was close to town in a very quite area. Smiley staff (cleaners & gardener were very friendly)and family members (Terence) who were very accommodating at any time. It's affordable and especially recommended for families.
Thank you for making our stay at SHH a memorable one. We highly recommend others to stay here. See you next time (",)
