"Luxury combined with traditional architecture"
Accommodation: our beach Fale was lovely, a little rustic, but all the mod cons, rock waterfall shower was nice, and a lovely raised patio outside the room looking out to the reef. Overwater bungalows are really luxrious and more private.
Food and drink: Mika's restaurant food is good, enough variety for a week, and there are two other resort restaurants within walking distance. Meal deal is worthwhile if you intend eating here every day, otherwise pas as you go. Also note I didn't rate the house wine very highly, and other wine not included in meal deal. They really tried to accommodate my wife's gluten/dairy free requirement, but that really limits what you can eat on the menu, and they didn't always get it right. Beer and wine free in mini-bar is a nice touch
Location: Beautiful landscaped gardens, small but nice pool area was never crowded, two nice beaches either side of resort, access to lagoon via sandy slopes direct from resort area. You really need a car to explore further afield (or hire driver from resort by the hour/half day). South coast drive east is a good day trip with waterfalls, pretty coastline and beaches and don't miss To-Sua. We weren't that impressed with Apia (about 45 mins drive) or north coast (lots of rubbish).
Staff: Genuinely friendly, and high standard or service, very eager to please. All from the local village. They put on a great cultural day including Umu, good Fia-fia night and pleasent music around bar and restaurant in evenings
