What better place to spend your honeymoon then in beautiful Samoa.
Couple, Daniel and Jess have been courting for eight years and recently got married in their homeland, Melbourne, Australia.
Samoa was definitely the getaway destination to celebrate their love and enjoy a quiet peaceful stay away from their busy city life.
According to them, pictures they saw online of Samoa do not do justice to the natural beauty and the perfect landscape of the islands.
“The water is so much bluer and the grass is greener,” Daniel said.
It’s their first time to any Pacific Island and for Daniel it’s his first time overseas.
“It is overwhelming, you cannot know how beautiful it is until you’ve seen it,” he said.
Jess’s friend had posted photos online of Samoa so they decided to see the islands for themselves.
“It is way better then what we expected it to be. We saw pictures of Samoa, but when you are here, it is just so much better,” Jess shared.
“This Island is a place you have to see by yourself.”
Daniel couldn’t have agreed more: “It is different when you are really here.”
Jess added: “The landscape is impressive. Just opening the hotel doors and seeing the ocean right there. It is so calm and peaceful here. We just wanted to come and have a relaxing getaway.”
Not only is the vibe in Samoa different, they also noted the weather.
“In Samoa the weather and the temperature is great. In Australia, it is either really hot or really cold and it rains a lot as well.”
They are staying at the Sheraton Beach Resort, Mulifanua.
“The service is just phenomenal. Everyone is communicating, they look at you and ask you if you need help or you want something,” Jess shared.
“The staff pays attention and sees if you need anything. They even go and get you some extra tea. It seems like they can read your mind.”
The couple also appreciates the friendly people and the helpful culture they experienced in Samoa.
“It is a warm welcome to the Pacific for us because it is our first time. You feel that you are in good hands and safe too,” Jess said.
“We are 100 percent happy with the service and our decision to come to Samoa to spend our honeymoon,” Daniel added.
The couple arrived on Sunday will leave on Saturday.
Before they leave they planned to visit the Tosua Ocean Trench and the waterfall. They want to visit a village as well and explore more of Samoa.
Samoa maybe the first Pacific Island the couple visited, but definitely not the last one. Into their third day yesterday, they’ve already planned to return.
“We just love it,” said Jess.
