Where to Find Adults-Only Accommodations in Samoa
Ensuring the right tone is set for a blissful island getaway is as easy as finding an adults-only resort. In Samoa, one of the lesser developed tourist hubs of the South Pacific, your choice of 18+ resorts is few and far in between. There’s only one real resort that is exclusively for adults all year round, while another is seasonal. That leaves you with some creative accommodation choices should you want to ensure your stay is a kids-free zone. Find out more in this list of the best adults-only resorts in Samoa!
1. Seabreeze Resort (18+)
You may have seen in The Complete Luxury Guide to Samoa how Samoa doesn’t do luxury to the standards you might expect in the South Pacific. Well, Seabreeze Resort is the exception.
A boutique resort that’s exclusively adults only (18+), Seabreeze has just 12/13 contemporary villas, ranging from elegant rooms by the infinity pool and bar to the elevated “Honeymoon Point Villa” boasting a private plunge pool and enviable position in the cliffs overlooking the resort’s picturesque bay.
Spend your time here exploring the lagoon in the provided clear-bottom kayaks, indulging in a massage, and dining on contemporary cuisine at The Waterfront Restaurant and Bar. Although the restaurant is open to the public throughout the day, it becomes a child-free zone after 5 pm. Learn more about the restaurant in the 5 Best Fine Dining Restaurants in Samoa.

2. Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa (18+ From May to October)
A rustic adults-only getaway awaits at the Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa – but only between May and October. Design your own retreat, whether it’s private dinner setups on the beach, treatments available at the Tui–I–Lagi Spa or teeing off at the resort’s very own 9-hole golf course. Dining here is quite the event as you make your way down the lantern-lit pathway to the overwater Ava I Toga Restaurant for fresh seafood and South Pacific fusion dining.
Meanwhile, any one of the villas decorated with soothing tones and island-inspired interiors is sure to impress, whether it’s among the lush tropical grounds or basking in the absolute beachfront.

3. Vaea Hotel Samoa (11+)
While not 100% kid-free, at least you don’t have to worry about the youngest sorts (which, let’s be honest, are usually the noisiest) at Vaea Hotel Samoa. The hotel is exclusively for guests aged 11 and up, making your cocktail from the on-site Bora Bora Garden Bar all the heavenlier…
What’s more, the boutique hotel in Apia provides excellent value for money from its stylish rooms to the garden swimming pool. After a day on the town, only a five-minute stroll away, retreat to your garden and mountain-view room complete with an ensuite, air-conditioning, balcony or patio and tea/coffee-making facilities.

4. Vailima Hillside Apartments (Luxury Apartments for Adults)
Set on the verdant hills of Mt Vaea, only moments away from attractions like the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum and Vailima Botanical Garden, Vailima Hillside Apartments is a set of adults-only luxury apartments mainly leased out long-term for those craving luxuries such as an outdoor pool and more Western architecture.
Some of the tenants here, however, rent out part of their villas, Airbnb-style, such as this listing on Expedia. The ground floor of this stunning contemporary villa is all yours with two bedrooms exclusively for adult guests. Boasting open-plan living across a kitchen with granite worktops between a substantial oven and a lovingly presented dining area, this is a place you’ll be glad to retreat to in Apia.

5. Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa (Family-Friendly Resort with Adults-Only Wing)
Providing a South Pacific resort holiday that is familiar to most, Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa has the beach, the pool, the restaurant, the accessibility, as well as upscale villas – even an adults-only wing. Although this resort is primarily aimed at families, so shared facilities will have the family vibe, there is an adults-only set of villas should you need a quieter part of the resort to relax.
Either way, the resort organises a range of island tours to make all of your holiday exploits effortless, while the on-site restaurant and bar provide an airy setting for fresh local flavours with an international twist.

Luckily, there are a few if not limited holiday homes that are in remote areas where it’s highly unlikely that you’ll be disturbed throughout your stay. Have a browse through some available in the 10 Best Holiday Homes in Samoa.
