We were here from good Friday to easter Monday. Ferry only run once a day on these public holidays. 80 tala to beach fale. Absolutely beautiful. Staff so friendly. We were 2 Mtrs from crystal clear warm Beautiful water. Fale basic and perfect. Meals were great and filling and changed daily. Take pegs. Hire a car. Take a great book....

Stayed here for 2 nights in March with my boyfriend on a nice little holiday! Lovely family and beautiful beach along with fabulous Fale stay! This is the way to go if you are staying in Samoa. I would skip the resorts and stay here! Traditional Samoan food- all home cooked and prepared fresh everyday! I stayed during a very...

Don't go all the way to Samoa to sleep in a Hotel. Tanu beach Fales (Fale=hut) is the place for the rugged and raw experience. You have everything you need, a mattress to sleep on and the ocean to swim in. That's paradise!

We were a group of family and friends of 12 plus an 18 month baby who recently stayed at Tanu Beach Fales, Manase in Savai'i. Our family and friends live in Christchurch, Auckland and Melbourne. The accommodation is what we expected and the breakfast and dinner delicious enjoyed by all of us. The downside of our stay was poor customer...

We were so lucky to get stuck here- nothing about our trip to Savai'i went to plan, but our unplanned stay at Tanu's was a definite highlight. Staff were friendly and went out of their way (literally) to ensure a great stay. Basic facilities, but what you should be looking for in fale accommodation. Great communal eating spaces, fantastic Samoan...

It was like visiting my family. Management set up our fales while we enjoyed our free and delicious refreshments "pua'aniu" Hardy Polynesian breakfast and dinner of steam rice, fried chicken, vegetable stirfry, with a warm cup of laumoli. Swimming at moonlight, and watching the stars is what I remember when thinking of Tanu Beach Fales. Will definitely stay here again...

Loved the beach front fales, wow what a view. Definitely a more basic way to be on holiday with shared bathroom and showers. Food was plentiful and delicious local style, you certainly don't go hungry. Very little need for lunch, but if so inclined it is a very short walk to the resort next door (100m) and only 5 tala...

We have stay there just for a one night. We got a coconut when we arrived, it was very nice of them. Fale was great, big enaught right next to sea. Sea and beach was amazing and the night sky was unbelivable! Food was realy good! Little bit noisy in the night.

We stayed at Tanu for a week and could have easily stayed longer if we hadn't had done so much swimming & sunbathing already! We were greeted with a cold coconut & some banana's which was a lovely touch. Our fale was right on the waters edge, a huge comfy mattress with a heavy duty mozzie net over the top...

Solo female- booked 3 nights at Tanu beach fales, to my surprise after reading all the good trip advisor comments the resort was absolutely dead. Manase beach is stunning and the food is delicious, however as I was travelling alone and hoping to meet people this was not the ideal place to stay and I decided to forfeit part of...
