Activities/Attractions: Island life in Samoa revolves around the warm waters of the South Pacific Ocean and the mountains that rise up from the sea. Upolu Island is an extraordinary place, unhurried, unspoiled, surrounded by picturesque mountains and spectacular ocean views. Unwind in a place left behind by the passage of time, set aside from the busy world beyond our waters.

Our people are warm and welcoming. Respect for our 3,000-year-old culture, language, traditions and fa'asamoa will earn you a special affection in the hearts of our people. We would be pleased to help you with simple Samoan language, dance and cultural lessons.

  • The budget Apia hotel is an excellent base to explore the beautiful islands of Samoa
  • We provides travel information, snorkeling equipment and arrange rental cars, beach fales and adventure tours to make your holiday in West Samoa as relaxing and enjoyable as possible

"Thanks for making my stay in Samoa so great, the views are beautiful, room very clean, breakfasts were yum [I'm definitely a papaya convert]. Most of all thanks to the girls who were so friendly and helpful during my month here. Recommendations of places to visit outside of Apia. Lalomanu - great snorkeling [stay at Taufuas] Virgin Cove [best food and great fiafia on Saturday night with the Samoan junior fire dancing champs]. In Savaii check out Vacations at Manase and Siufaga resort near Tuasivi [the owner , Paulo, is great]. Thanks for making Samoa the best trip ever. Hope to catch up with you guys soon."

"Once again thank you all very much for making us feel very welcome in your home. We have very much enjoyed our stay here in Samoa and the staff at Princess Tui have done their up most to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Thank you and we will miss you all!"

"After 2 nights in hotels that were not so good, we found this wonderful place! Beautiful view, lovely house and best of all the Staff! Everyone is so friendly and helpful, thank you for sharing a bit of the Samoa way of life. Will always remember you. PS. Lovely breakfast!"

"Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality while we've been in Samoa. We traveled around the two islands for one months in total and loved coming back here whenever we were in Apia. The building is beautiful, really open and breezy ... It's also a very relaxing and quiet. The bed I slept in became mine! Definitely a nice change after staying in fales - although I would recommend those as well! What a lovely island. The most amazing coastlines I have ever seen up-to-date and I have felt really "at home". Thanks to everyone!"

"Well, its the end of my month here and I got to say I had an AWESOME time!! George, Alesi and all the staff were so friendly and accommodating to all my palagi needs. It was definitely worth every cent - and the rate was so low - really good prices for Backpacking tourists. I really love it here and hope to be back soon."

I took the Princess as my base camp to discover Samoa. One of the friendliest places I stopped during my world trip. Staff with a smile on the face everyday. That's the way it is in Samoa it's hard for me to leave such a lovely island in the South Pacific. Thanks very much for the great time I spent here."

"To all – Thank you so much for a wonderful welcome and your friendship. We have loved our week in Samoa and will definitely come again one day – not too long we hope. Thank you all for your help with cooking the fish in true Samoan way using coconut. We will be thinking of you often!"
