5 Days Dive and Surf in Samoa

  • Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa, Samoa P.O. Box 3684, Apia, Samoa

Surf Camp Samoa

In the past years, several "surfing camps" have opened in Samoa, but those who prefer a bit more upscale comfort, things like air conditioning and an excellent ala carte menu; like the pool for spouses or traveling partners to enjoy and tap water that's safe to drink, tend to gravitate to Coconuts. Coconuts' laid back atmosphere suits them perfectly, the location is, quite frankly, incomparable, and when everything is considered, their rates can be just about the same.

  • 5 days surfing in Samoa
  • Use of kayaks and snorkel gears
  • Access to great breaks a few paddles away
  • Continental complimentary breakfast or fully stocked mini bar
  • Local bus tickets to and from Apia
  • Saturday Samoa cultural day
  • 4 nights accommodation

Over-the-water fales

The over-the-water fales are situated as to maximize individual privacy. Each fale boasts amazing views of the beaches, lagoon, and ocean, and boast simply breathtaking sunset vistas. The highlight of these unique over-the-water fales is the expansive sun decks, sun loungers, and comfy furniture beckon guests to relax and enjoy their tropical surroundings. The large and airy bedroom features a king size bed and boasts a soaring, traditional Samoan ceiling. The bedroom and sitting area opens up onto the expansive decks, and can be closed off with large glass sliding doors for those guests wishing to use the air-conditioning. Just off the bedroom are doors that open to an additional, small, mini-deck.

Beach fales

Six individual thatched roof, air-conditioned beach fales are located directly on the sandy beach, just steps from the water’s edge. A large indoor sitting area with tropical island decor opens to a spacious covered terrace boasting amazing views. The elevated split-level bedroom features a king size bed. Coconuts offers two two-bedroom fales with two completely separate bedrooms, one with a king size bed, the other with two twin beds. The unique open-air bathrooms feature local lava-rock walls, and have a sunken shower nestled under a private ‘waterfall’ shower.

Coco suites

The three Coco suites are ideal for a couple seeking extra space and amenities, or for two couples or a family traveling together. This fully air-conditioned, two room suite is comprised of a full-size bedroom with a king size bed, and a large sitting room that can be arranged as a second private bedroom. Large, folding louver doors separate the two rooms, and may be opened to create a spacious, airy feel. Both the separate bedroom and the sitting room have individual ensuite open air bathrooms (two full bathrooms), featuring Coconuts original, famous sunken tub with lava rock waterfall shower. Each suite has its own, individual covered terrace with comfortable outdoor furniture, and amazing views of the gardens, beach, and ocean.

Villas

If it is luxury you are after, than the Royal Beach villas at Coconuts are sure to deliver. All three villas are architecturally unique with exterior walls of the living room and bedrooms constructed entirely of large timber poles and glass.The two flanking villas each total over 600 square feet of spacious island living. A large bedroom with walk-in closet features a king size bed, and opens to a comfortable sitting room and a writing alcove. The large open-air style bathroom comes complete with Coconuts’ famous lava rock ‘waterfall’ shower. The central villa is more than twice as spacious and includes all of the same features as the other villas as well as a private, second-story observatory and balcony, which is accessed via an interior circular staircase. This second story is a wonderful spot to take in the amazing views, relax with a cocktail, and may even be set up as a separate bedroom.

Them's the breaks!

There are several great breaks within paddling distance of the hotel and even more a short boat ride away. Directly in front of the hotel, about 300 meters out, is a very nice right aptly named "coconuts". Further west along the edge of the turquoise lagoon are two or three other breaks. One, named "catapult" after one of the favorite (and most potent) of Mika's tropical cocktails, is a thick and mean right; another, called tafitoala, is a popular left. Heading east down the beach from Coconuts are at least two more breaks, including a left called siumu, lying offshore from the village of the same name. This is a good paddle from the beach, out a reef cut with a strong, outgoing current.

A short boat ride further east down the coast, off of the Aganoa black sand beach, are two more great breaks, a left and a right. Both of these are an easy paddle from the beach if you choose to approach by car.

The left, called boulders, is one of the most popular in Samoa. Of course, in Samoa, that sort of popularity only means that you might see someone else out there once every odd Saturday. Aganoa beach is also a great, sandy bottomed swimming beach, with beautiful snorkeling reefs on each side of it's small bay and virtually no currents.

Naturally, elsewhere on the island, there are dozens of other known breaks, and probably just as many undiscovered or "secret" ones. Most of these are accessible by car and besides being great rides, are set in spectacular surroundings. Check out Tiavea, a tiny village on the northeast corner of the island, a half hour drive from the main road down a rough dirt track, in a beautiful little bay.

Big waves, big names

Every year Samoa gets it's fair share of "big name" visitors from the world of professional surfing, and a number of them have stayed at Coconuts. In the past years Coconuts' list of notable surfing guests includes names like Chris Lassen, Sonny Garcia, Aaron Loyo, Brian Jennings, Serena Brooke, and Jon Rose. In addition, Coconuts have hosted Perry Farrell and Roger Leonard from "Porno for Pyros", their sound man Russel Toi, famous surfing photographer Aaron Chang, and other such notables as Peter Destephano, Matt Archibold, James Brisick, Strider Wasilewski and Shawn Briley.

Coconuts is located on the southern sunshine coast of Upolu, the main island of Samoa. The island of Upolu, while smaller than Savaii, is the most inhabited and is home to the bustling town of Apia, and the Faleolo International Airport.

    "This was our fifth visit to Samoa and also our fifth stay at Coconuts. Each time we visit Coconuts we bring along more family and friends, we always have the meal deal and we always leave a five star review. When paying for our stay in full a month before we arrived, we requested an upgrade as we have never had one before. We were advised that an upgrade would be offered to us upon check in - this did not occur. Another couple within our group did receive one, even though this was their very first visit. Another couple within our group who were on their third visit also received an upgrade. General Manager Lina acknowledged that we missed out on an upgrade and kindly offered us a massage each instead, much appreciated. The local people who run this place are the most beautiful people you could ever want to meet. Much can be learnt from Samoans with regard to culture, manners, and respect. On every visit we usually tip staff members discreetly. It is not compulsory to tip, but as they do a fabulous job, are not highly paid, and have families to support - they do appreciate it. Take your hand held fan to lunch and dinner, especially if there is no breeze blowing. Also take along mosquito coils to light on your balcony while enjoying after dinner drinks. The climate is hot and humid so be sure to drink lots of bottled water to keep hydrated during the day and take along a good quality sunscreen with UVA and UVB SPF30 or SPF50 protection."

    "Super location on wide beach frontage on southern coast of Samoa. Hotel transfer was about 45 minutes along pretty roads where you get a good sense of village houses and gardens. The resort has a margaritaville aesthetic, somehow still quite 80's even after reconstruction. This is in touches like the endless paper-based accounting, laminated rainbow menus, and so on. Food was good and the staff were visible."

    "The owners are on site and welcoming, engaging with customers. The beach villa we had was very spacious and comfortable, with old fashioned bamboo furnishings. The sort of outdoor bathroom was also huge, but the slippery stone steps to the sunken shower were a hazard (two falls). That could be easily fixed (we did address with the team for the future). "

    "You can run on the local road with little traffic, but look out for dogs on their own. No menace, but be ready to stare them down. It's hot but the views and the chance to see local neighborhoods are worth it."

    "We stayed seven nights in a over-the water-fale and it was the best holiday ever. Nothing was too much for the staff, they went over and above what was expected, always friendly and super helpful. I did not want to leave. We celebrated our 30th anniversary and they made it the most unforgettable day ever. Thanks to everyone there, but a special thanks to Sio, Gabe, Venny, Bala, Tara, Louise. The food, service, and location is absolutely outstanding."

    "Our stay in Samoa and at Coconuts was very amazing. It exceeded our expectations for sure. We stayed two nights in a villa, and one night in the over-the-water suite. We both agreed that we didn't prefer one accommodation over the other. Both were unique and beautiful. Beds were very comfortable. Air conditioner worked well. No TV's, which was fine for us. The staff was very kind. Everyone introduced themselves to us throughout our stay, which was nice. We asked Peter (from the restaurant) if he could show us around the area. He hopped in the car with us and took us to some plantations and explained all about Samoan life. He took us to his village and cracked open coconuts for us. It was a really neat experience. The scenery is spectacular. There are two beautiful beaches on each side of the resort that have pure sand and are great for swimming. (The beach located directly in the resort isn't stellar for swimming, it's a little rocky) We took kayaks and snorkel gear out toward the reefs, and snorkeled for a few hours. We saw sea turtles, bright blue starfish, and a ton of beautiful fish. Neil also took us out on his boat to another reef to snorkel. He was very helpful. But honestly the best snorkeling was straight out front of the resort. That's where we saw turtles!"

    "Our only slight critique was the level of customer service. My partner and I both work in high end hospitality, so we are particularly critical of customer service! Mainly we were just confused when we got there about where to go, and how to get to our room because there wasn't anyone working at reception. Same when we needed bug spray from the gift shop. It just seemed like when we needed someone, there just wasn't anyone there! That was the only, very minimal critique we had. "

    "Otherwise, Coconuts was fabulous and we want to go back as soon as possible. We definitely wouldn't stay anywhere else in Samoa."

    "Thank you Coconuts! The accommodation is so beautiful and very relaxing. Samoa is one of the most beautiful places we have been and the staff at Coconuts are very attentive and friendly. Cultural day is an absolute must! The effort and energy all the staff put into this is amazing! Our guides for a couple of tours, - John and Tala are absolutely lovely. They both made sure to show us as much as possible of Samoa and are very easy to chat to. A special thank you to Lina for being so attentive when my partner was not feeling well. Another thank you to Sio for being one of the loveliest people we have ever met and telling us all about Samoan life! We simply cannot wait to come back to Samoa!"
