Salani Surf Resort, Samoa
On the South Coast of Upolu, where the spring-fed waters of a tropical river meet the blue South Pacific you will find a small enclave for surfers and their families, a place combining quality waves, pristine environment, recreational activities, living Polynesian culture, and services about which the modern surf-traveler dreams. Samoa receives powerful, quality surf year round and Salani Surf Resort is optimally located to take advantage of the conditions. Their fleet of three open-bow skiffs and multiple vehicles, allow guests to surf four spots regularly and several others as conditions permit.
Salani Surf Resort is for travelers looking to experience the best of Samoa’s surf, heartwarming culture and natural beauty. Although Salani is a dedicated surf resort guests are encouraged to bring along non-surfing partners and families. Salani employs well trained boatmen for surf guides; whose job is to get you safely into the best waves. All boatmen are lifeguard and first aid trained (CPR), and our three boats (19ft, 23ft and 25ft) feature modern safety measures and back-up equipment.
Salani Surf Resort is situated on the mouth of the Mulivai Fagatoloa River (almost mosquito free), between the base of a lush tropical jungle basin, crystal blue lagoon and next to the rural and still very traditional Salani village.
The main fale at Salani contains the dining area, full bar, and adjacent games are (table tennis & darts). Local and international phone calls/faxes can be placed or received from the back office. But remember, you are on vacation to relax, try and leave most of the business at home.
The meals are prepared using the freshest local fruits, seafood, vegetables and imported meats. Salani boasts having won the award for Food and Beverage Service and excellence in 1999. Meals are served buffet style to cure even the hungriest of surfers appetites and range from Italian, European, American, Mexican, Indian, Aussie BBQ, Vegetarian and Samoan- with one night a week being Samoan Fia Fia night with traditional food (in which you can help with the preparation), singing and dancing- always a highlight.
