Coconuts Beach Club to debut new luxurious Spa
Coconuts Beach Club Resort & Spa located on the beach in the village of Maninoa, Samoa, will debut its new Spa with an invitation-only Open House and Cocktail Party tomorrow, Sunday.
The newly designed Spa, open to locals as well as resort guests, offers full-service luxurious suites for manicures and pedicures, body scrubs, facials, couples’ massage, waxing, Jacuzzi, and granite outdoor soaking tubs.
The Spa has been upgraded to take advantage of the tropical beauty of the resort, including colors to convey the serenity of the ocean.
Coconuts was conceived by Barry Rose, known in Samoa as Tautaimatapalapala (Tautai), and his late wife, Jennifer, (Sieni), who traveled the world searching for their “paradise” after leaving Beverly Hills, California, in 1984.
They developed a list of criteria, and the place that fit best turned out to be Samoa, due to its size, stability, safety and, perhaps most influential, the culture and friendliness of the Samoan people.
A lease for the property was finalized in January 1990, and in November 1990, a limited opening took place.
Together with world-renowned interior and architectural designer, and close friend, Robert Ross, Tautai and Sieni’s vision came to life.
After surviving the damage of the tsunami of 2009 and the cyclone of 2012, Coconuts was redesigned and expanded by Tautai and Ross. Their final restoration project has been a renovation and expansion of the resort’s Spa.
Coconuts currently employs over 100 local Samoans from the surrounding villages, and offers a gourmet restaurant, lush grounds, beachfront access, and exciting celebrations of Samoan culture nightly.
Coconuts is the only resort in Samoa that features over-the-water fales that include deluxe appointments and comfort, including air-conditioning and bamboo four-poster beds.
Guests come from around the world, particularly from New Zealand and Australia, as well as the Far East and Europe.
The Open House and Cocktail Party hosted by Tautai will feature hors d’oeuvres, wine and beverages from Coconuts’ restaurant and beer from Taula Beverages, Samoa’s 100% locally owned and operated brewery, as a participating sponsor.
