They maintain several permanent moorings at various breaks, protecting the fragile reef and marine life systems. Sa'Moana Resort attempts to maximize surfer guest experience by keeping surfer numbers to no more than 15 at any one time and by leaving locations cleaner than they found them!

Beach Front Bungalows

All Sa'Moana Resort’s bungalows are absolutely beach front accommodation with breathtaking views of the beach, reef and Pacific Ocean. They are beautiful, all natural and have outdoor lava rock showers. Sa'Moana Resort has a fully-licensed bar/ restaurant and sports bar with pool table above the huge outdoor restaurant deck area. The bar/ restaurant is open all day, from 07:00 till late.


Samoa has waves all year round, with several breaks that are 'all tides and all winds friendly'. Sa'Moana Resort is equipped to get you to the best possible surf with a 24-feet single hull and 28-feet single hull boat. When you go surfing in Samoa, you'll discover that the majority of locations are coral reef or rock bottom. There is a great diversity of wave types ranging from medium to long point breaks like Village Lefts or Missions, to the bowling barrels of Cocos and a great imitation of Hawaii's Sunset at Tiavea.

The waves are generated from far away with swells coming from deep in the southern ocean before hitting the south coast shore of Upolu Island and with north swells originating in the Alaskan territory coming via Hawaii to Samoa’s north shore. April to November normally sees the south shore getting the majority of swell while December to March is when we expect the north swells. However, swell and waves can be found on both sides of the island at the same time and all depends upon the swell size and direction. Rarely is there a flat day. There is also a good chance that you will score some fun or challenging waves right out in front of the resort, with a variety of depressions in the reef creating several waves depending again upon size and direction. You can also be lucky and get Village Lefts working, for which you will only need to make a casual 10-minute walk to find uncrowded waves all for you. Some of the places/ breaks are:

South Shore

Resorts, Village Lefts, Special K, Pebbles, Barras, Wackas, Coconuts, Inside Siumu, Outside Siumu, Aganoa, Nuusafee Island, Spot X, Y-Tops.

North Shore

Dragon’s Breath, Pudding Rock, Laulii, Solosolo, Fagaloa Bay, Tiavea.

Those are only a few of the places Sa'Moana Resort has access to, and there are more unnamed and uncharted breaks available to guests of the resort, with the right swell direction combined with tide, winds and season.


This holiday will take place in Sa'Moana Resort, located on the stunning South Coast of Upolu, Samoa.
