❝Great, beautiful location. Nice and cool up on the mountain, great views from all the rooms. Pool in the garden and a natural swimming hole with small waterfall minutes away! Food is good and staff very helpful. They do a free shuttle to town each morning. Great place to acclimatise or spend the last night before a flight. Dave himself is a cool dude.❞
❝Had an amazing view. Nice and quiet. The owner was very friendly and the surrounding was clean. It's an amazing place to distress, relax and get away from city life.❞
Apia is the capital city of the South Pacific island nation of Samoa. Offshore, near Vaiala beach, Palolo Deep Marine Reserve is a stretch of reef with a deep, coral-lined hole. The Robert Louis Stevenson Museum is housed in the writer’s restored home. Nearby, at the top of Mount Vaea, is his grave. In the city center, the country’s natural history and cultural heritage are the focus of the Museum of Samoa. Stalls at the buzzing, 24-hour Maketi Fou market offer local food and produce. The Immaculate Conception of Mary Cathedral has ornate timber ceilings. Samoa Cultural Village offers tours and traditional craft demonstrations. Along the coast to the east, Piula Cave Pool is a blue freshwater pool, open for swimming, at the mouth of 2 caves joined by an underwater passage. Southwest of Apia, Papase’ea Sliding Rocks are rocky natural waterslides tumbling into pools. To the south, dramatic Papapapaitai Falls cascade into a gorge.
