On the South Coast of Upolu, where the spring-fed waters of a tropical river meet the blue South Pacific you will find a small enclave for surfers and their families, a place combining quality waves, pristine environment, recreational activities, living Polynesian culture, and services about which the modern surf-traveler dreams. Samoa receives powerful, quality surf year round and Salani Surf Resort is optimally located to take advantage of the conditions. Our fleet of three open-bow skiffs, allow us to surf four spots regularly and several others as conditions permit.
Salani Surf Resort, located on Upolu’s South East coast, is for travelers looking to experience the best of Samoa’s surf, heartwarming culture and natural beauty. Although Salani is a dedicated surf resort guests are encouraged to bring along non-surfing partners and families. Our aim is for every guest to have a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience. We employ well trained boatmen for surf guides; whose job is to get you safely into the best waves. All boatmen are lifeguard and first aid trained (CPR), and our three boats (19ft, 23ft and 25ft) feature modern safety measures and back-up equipment.
To maintain this quality and safe guest experience the resort hosts no more than 12 surfing guests at any one time. Salani Surf Resort is situated on the mouth of the Mulivai Fagatoloa River (almost mosquito free), between the base of a lush tropical jungle basin, crystal blue lagoon and next to the rural and still very traditional Salani village. Lodging is in 8 comfortable fan-cooled fales (bungalows). The fales are well ventilated and are elevated in order to receive the cool ocean breezes.
The main fale at Salani contains the dining area. Come and enjoy a cold beverage or the tasty food offered on our BIKINI BAR & RESTAURANT MENU! Just remember you are on vacation, come relax and enjoy!
