Guests will be able to enjoy snorkelling in the turquoise lagoons, hiking through the rugged forest, leisurely kayaking or fishing, jet skiing and more.
Guests will also be offered insight into the Fa’a Samoan (cultural heritage). Visit nu’u (villages), meeting houses, churches and open fale (homes) surrounding the malae (village green).
