1. Aganoa Lodge
Don’t leave this piece of paradise just to the surfers. Although it’s primarily advertised as a surf camp, Aganoa Lodge offers one of the best resorts in Samoa for yogis. Not only do they often have a resident yoga instructor to fit yoga classes into your holiday schedule, but yoga mats are available for guest use should you want to get some independent sessions in.
As for accommodation, the lodge has some of the most upscale faux-beach fale experiences on Savai’i. Your stylish and spacious oval fale has its own private deck leading straight onto the sands, while out the back is your ensuite rock wall shower.
Meals are all-inclusive and served in the dining fale with the Tafua Rainforest Reserve out the back and the Pacific Ocean out the front. There’s more to do here with massages, fishing, kayaking, SUPping and eco tours available. For more surf lodges, take a look at the 7 Best Surf Resorts & Lodges in Samoa.
