Located in the heart of the South Pacific, Samoa has long been regarded as the birthplace of Polynesia, with a culture as alive today as it was 3,000 years ago.
At the heart of this culture lies respect and hospitality, and the Samoan people cannot wait to demonstrate this the Samoan Way.
Witness the creative expression of this tradition and join in the celebrations at a fiafia night, where delicious Samoan food, surf and turf style, is served and the culture is celebrated through traditional song, dance and storytelling as distinct and unique as the culture itself.
You can even take home a memento from the local markets, with handicrafts, fashion, jewellery and handmade artefacts made in Samoa.
Known by many as Mother Nature’s Playground, Samoa has an abundance of pristine beaches, lush gardens, majestic mountains, powerful blowholes and stunning seascapes, all in place waiting to be explored and enjoyed and offering a plethora of activities catering for all types of travellers.
But in order to truly appreciate the beauty of Samoa, you must tap in to the Samoan Way of living – to slow down and to faifai lemu, which literally means ‘take it easy’.
Relaxation has been turned into an art form and travellers who visit Samoa soon rediscover the pleasure of simply watching the world go by.
Only then can we really appreciate the beauty of nature, the importance of family and why the Fa’a Samoa culture exists to protect these.
If you’re up for a family adventure, a couple’s escape, a spiritual or cultural experience or just a piece of paradise to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, beautiful Samoa awaits.!
