From S.T.A’s Newsletter - Sinalei Reef Resort and Spa in Samoa are in the throes of launching a range of bespoke experienced-based visitor activities.
The experiences, called Signature Samoa, are being trialled now, but the product will be oficially launched on the 1st of January, 2018.
Nelson Annandale, who will be running the venture, says the experiences will be delivered with input from Poutasi village locals.
Activities include an around six-hour cooking experience that includes gathering the food; eco trekking in search of blow holes and hidden caves as well as tree planting and a Hook and Cook nautical adventure.
There will also be opportunities for visitors to visit local schools as well as learn about the art of playing – and making – ukuleles.
‘We want to put the focus on authentic experiences and to provide people with something more than a run-of-the-mill tour as we know our guests like to get offsite to experience something over and above the normal cultural tours,’ Annandale says.
The experiences are being trialled with Sinalei guests, but will be available to all visitors after the launch.
