The resort, which took three years in the making, opened its doors on June 23 to host a wedding as part of a ‘soft launch’, with guests traveling from as far as France to attend the function. C.E.O of Samoa Tourism Authority, Papali’i Sonja Hunter, says the island nation is excited to have another property open in Samoa that caters to the luxury market.

“The resort is absolutely stunning. The design has been sensitive to the environment and reflects the Samoan culture in details throughout the property.

It’s a welcome addition to our existing line up of accommodation options and the discerning traveler seeking a luxury offering now has another property for them to consider. 

“The restaurants and facilities also offers our visitors more options that are of the highest quality without having to venture too far from the capital.” The Resort hosted a soft opening on Friday night. Here are some more photos from the event:
