Authentic Polynesian Experiences
Nestled in the heart of Polynesia, Samoa encapsulates everything that is great about the region, from awe inspiring terrain to friendly people and an overwhelming feeling of relaxation. Governed by the Fa’a Samoa, or ‘the Samoan way’, these faithful, selfless and charming people value the agai (extended family) over anything else, and all visitors are treated like family.
Spread over several volcanic islands, the two largest being Upolu and Savaii, the largely untouched landscape comprises of everything from lava fields to ocean trenches and lush jungles with every shade of green imaginable.
The pristine coastline, with scattered reef breaks that are home to thousands of marine life species, are lined with thatched shelters known as fales, as well as traditional villages with livestock roaming the streets, smiling children in coconut trees and people playing ‘kilikiti’ or Samoan cricket.
Independent since 1962, Samoa is a safe, stable and strong country that is very proud of its history and culture. The capital Apia reflects this with many monuments and colonial building recognising their past. Furthermore, with tribal influences and family structure playing a major governing role in Samoan society, the core of this nation is as it has been for hundreds of years without the impact of western commercialism or control.
For an authentic south pacific experience, Samoa is the perfect destination for couples, families, solo-travelers and backpackers alike. With over 3000 years of history, unique natural phenomenons and a special type of hospitality not seen anywhere else, Samoa is an incredibly special place that needs to be explored to be believed.
