1. Vaea Hotel Samoa
A boutique hotel offering the perfect vibe for a romantic getaway to Apia, Vaea Hotel Samoa has a no-child policy (11+ years only). In other words, that poolside cocktail from the on-site Bora Bora Garden Bar is all the heavenlier! What’s more, Vaea provides excellent value for money. It’s only a five-minute stroll into Apia town centre, located in the Togafuafua/Lalovaea suburb. After a day on the town, retreat to your garden and mountain-view room complete with an ensuite, air-conditioning, balcony or patio and tea/coffee-making facilities.

Your room is decorated with natural materials, including woven panelling across your kitchenette’s cabinetry and hand-carved doors.

3. Taumeasina Island Resort
Its own private island yet moments away from Apia’s bustling city centre, Taumeasina Island Resort is the perfect go-to for couples who want that resort holiday yet still be close to the action. It is also Samoa’s largest resort so you won’t be stuck for ways to spend your time together between the two resort pools, Fofo Spa & Sauna, tennis courts, watersports equipment and very popular fiafia nights (see the 10 Best Cultural Shows (Fiafia) in Samoa). There are three restaurants on-site to choose from, although they’re not our favourite at least you’re never too far from Apia’s finest places to wine and dine. As for rooms, the “Oceanview Hotel Rooms” are best for couples, boasting contemporary interiors of what you would expect of an international-style hotel.

4. Lava Hotel
If you’re looking for a contemporary stay in the South Pacific, this is it. Free WiFi and 45″ smart TVs with Chromecast in every room; this is practically unheard of in Samoa! The Lava Hotel also boasts an enviable location on the Mulinuu Peninsula with ocean views, best seen from the “Superior Ocean View Rooms”, yet is only a short walk from town. Head down into the industrial-style foyer designed with timber, iron interiors and attractive ambient lighting and you’ll find the hotel’s elegant 1905 Restaurant spilling out onto the poolside. The restaurant is well worth sitting down at least once during your stay, as listed in the 10 Best Restaurants in Apia.

6. Orator Hotel Samoa
On the quiet village and plantation outskirts of the city, Orator Hotel Samoa might have an unassuming sign at its entrance, but once you go down the palm-lined entrance to the gorgeous gardens and the greetings of a Samoan song upon checking in, you’re instantly made to feel special. Between the garden pathways and surrounding a deck-lined pool are a number of villas that, although need a facelift, have endearing features like tiled floors and rock-lined ensuite bathrooms. Enjoy a tropical breakfast included in the rate and more Samoan delights available to order at the restaurant.
