Barefoot luxury is a phrase that we just can't get enough of, and Coconuts Resort in Samoa is the very typification of this idea. The moment you step out of your air-conditioned, private transfers, you will want to slip straight out of your shoes and there is a chance you will never put them back on until getting back in the return transfer.
Tucked away on the coast of Upolu, the main island of Samoa, facing onto the world-class surf break of Coconuts, this resort has been crafted to give an authentic Samoan look and feel. The buildings, walkways and public areas are all created sustainably, using techniques passed down through generations of Samoan builders. The flowing resort blends seamlessly with the lush nature surrounding it, underlined by the bright-white sand and bright turquoise ocean.
The resort might look rustic, but they have built-in cutting-edge 4-star elements to create an ultra-modern interior design. There is no limit on your time here, you can choose to explore the hidden corners of the resort, pick your favourite palm tree to laze under, skip across the stepping stones to discover the luscious spa, or dance the night away on a platform over the ocean. You can give your taste buds a treat every night at the glorious Mika’s restaurant. Its stunning oceanside location and high-beamed Samoan thatched roof give way to a sumptuous journey through the intricacies of Samoan cooking.
While you have free travel to Apia, the main city, included, there is so much going on at the resort that you just might never want to leave. Samoan culture all day on Saturday, a BBQ like no other on Sunday and a wealth of surfing, snorkelling and stand-up paddleboarding mean that you can pack your trip full to the brim. Or you can sneak away to your treehouse suite with an ice-cold cocktail and relax on your terrace hammock. Bliss!
These airy, traditional Samoan houses look out over a man made lagoon and are surrounded by lush tropical jungle. With four poster beds, huge inbuilt baths with incredible views and gigantic, hammock-strewn decks, this is the perfect place to relax in true Samoan style.
Directly on the beach, just steps away from the ocean, this spacious, secluded cottage showcases the dream of South Sea living. The unique open-air bathrooms feature local lava-rock walls and have a sunken shower nestled under a private ‘waterfall’ shower.
