Accommodation in Upolu

When you visit Samoa your holiday starts immediately after arriving at Faleolo International Airport. The 20-minute ride to Apia has been described as one of the most beautiful drives in the South Pacific. The coastline is erratic, with quaint coves and beaches.

In the eastern part of Upolu we find the Falefa Falls and the 90 meter high Fuipisia Falls. Halfway between Apia and the easternmost point of Upolu you will find the road over Mafa Pass, a gazebo with a panoramic view of island and ocean. Especially south of the pass the coastal scenery is breathtaking.

There are plenty of accommodation options on Upolu for all levels of luxury and budgets.

Travelling around ‘Upolu by car is easy, but getting around by bus is time-consuming. If travelling on public transport, don’t try to visit too many places in a single day. A good rule of thumb is to allow an entire day for each excursion to a point of interest beyond the environs of Apia.
