Find the Perfect Resort or Hotel in Samoa for Your Conference or Business Event

Make a statement and β€œwow” your delegates with a conference, seminar or business event in Samoa. There are essentially three breathtaking destinations to choose from, including the cosmopolitan hub of Apia to the easy-to-access-yet-exotic shores of Upolu. Should you want to get truly off the beaten track, a couple of resorts/hotels offer very practical conference facilities on the island of Savai’i. Wherever you choose, we’ve compiled the top resorts to get you closer to organising the perfect event in this list of the best resorts for conferences in Samoa.

1. Taumeasina Island Resort

Its own private island yet moments away from Apia‘s city centre, Taumeasina Island Resort is the perfect go-to for corporate travellers seeking a modern and convenient conference resort. The “Samoa Ballroom” can hold up to 600 delegates and can even be subdivided into three separate rooms, giving you a very flexible space. What’s more, the facility has two breakout rooms with a printer, photocopier, projector, bathroom and kitchenette amenities. The resort is also the ideal place for relaxation with two resort pools, Fofo Spa & Sauna, tennis courts, watersports equipment, three restaurants and very popular fiafia nights. Rooms range from contemporary hotel rooms to multi-room apartments. More of the latter can be found in theΒ 10 Best Holiday Apartments in Samoa – ideal for a long-term stay on business.

2. Lava Hotel

Another venue set to impress, the Lava Hotel is only moments away from Apia‘s city centre yet is situated on the idyllic Mulinuu Peninsula. The four-star hotel with conference rooms for up to 120 delegates provides a more intimate but elegant space with easy access to kitchen facilities and bathrooms. Make use of the hot or cold buffet provided and opt for tea, coffee or a full drinks reception. Either way, delegates need only stroll downstairs to an attractive bar and restaurant area, ideal for those side meetings. Hotel rooms, on the other hand, are perhaps the most modern in Samoa with free WiFi, work desks, ensuite and 45″ smart TVs.

6. Return to Paradise Resort

For an off-the-beaten-track conference resort in Samoa that radiates Polynesian charm with a large open conference fale, Return to Paradise Resort is well worth considering for your event. The fale can sit up to 400 delegates on tables or up to 500 in a theatre-style layout. If you prefer a cooler temperature, however, the “Gary Cooper Lounge” is equipped with air-conditioning and is better suited for smaller conferences or board meetings.
