this was our favorite place to stay in all of Samoa. the beach Fales were amazing with the water lapping underneath while you slept. the family was so friendly and inclusive we were made to feel comfortable straight away. we were traveling with a baby and they took great care to look after us and all the guest. food was beautiful and always plenty. Cant wait to go back to Samoa and stay here again!

Room Tip: there is no bar here but it is only a short walk to the local shop and the family is happy for you to keep your drinks cold in their fridge

I stayed in a traditional Fale on the beach (1m from the sea) while backpacking in Savaii. Having one to yourself was very comfortable and I woke up especially to watch the amazing sunrise. I really enjoyed the beach, which was perfect for swimming. Lano was a nice village, with a shop for drinks and snacks, and only 20 mins from the ferry.

The owners were a lovely couple and the price of the Fale included breakfast and a home cooked dinner with fresh fish. They took such pride in the Fales and were constantly sweeping up etc. During my stay, I hurt my foot and they drove me to the hospital to get it checked out. That was really kind and meant I could continue my relaxing holiday without worrying.

Don't get me wrong, this is not a luxury 5* gated resort, but that's not what I was looking for on Savaii. I had a fantastic experience staying on the beach in the South Pacific, eating delicious local food and meeting other travellers. I would definitely return.

Room Tip: The open fales (covered by blinds) are most traditional and are natually cooled by the sea breeze.

Fales located on a beautiful stretch of beach. The lady owner was lovely, friendly and spoke very good English. It is a family run business and we were made to feel like part of the family during our stay. The food was delicious and lots of it. The only negative was the condition of the fales- blinds were dated and needed some maintenance.

Very good beach fale.
Fales huge and very near the sea (3 meters maybe if it's the high tide).
Breakfast and dinner very good !
Nice beach. But not the best spot for the snorkeling.
60 tala per night. So it's worth to go there ! Very good price for this quality !
But not a lot of things to do around Lano : just lava field in Saleaula (30 minutes by car).
