A five hour flight from Sydney with Virgin Australia brought us to beautiful Samoa.  With our honeymoon package, a one way airport transfer from the airport was also included.  We were greeted by two cheery Samoan guys from Seabreeze Resort who took our luggage and welcomed us by placing beautiful floral garlands round our necks.  As we stepped inside the private car, cold towels and bottles of mineral water were also provided.  The transfer to Seabreeze Resort was around 90 minutes (note that parts of the road aren’t in the greatest of condition).  The Samoans tend to drive quite slowly so as to dodge various animals and the big pot holes that emerged out of the darkness but it did allow us to view the wonderful landscapes as the sun slowly rose making for a glorious pink and yellow sunrise.

  • Honeymoon Point House

Reef and ocean view villas at the resort

Did I mention that it is also an Adults-Only resort?!  For those seeking a relaxing holiday, this resort will be perfect.

We arrived at Seabreeze Resort before 7am and the owner (Chris) was there to give us a tour of our villa.  The Honeymoon Point House was a DREAM and is definitely a villa with a view!  It is nestled in the cliffs at the very end of the resort with stunning views of the cove and the coast.  As you enter the thatched gate fale, the villa is on the left and there is a waterfall jacuzzi pool with underwater ‘disco’ lights and an open air shower with a view of the resort located on the right hand side.  The balcony at the very front of the villa is furnished with a day bed and loungers, so you can listen to the waves and drift off or wander back into your villa through the large folding doors.  This villa is very private with no chance of being disturbed.

The wet room had amazing views of the lagoon – opening the windows really felt like you were in another world.

Bathroom with a view

A complimentary mini bar was replenished daily and allowed us to select two soft drinks, two bottles of red wine and snacks for the evening.  Also two bottles of mineral water were replenished daily as well.  Wi-fi was not free, but we could purchase wi-fi for either 2 hours or 8 hours.  We were also advised that we didn’t need to carry cash with us and instead charge anything to the room.

Since we were on our honeymoon, we were offered:

  • An upgrade to the highest category (we weren’t upgraded as we had originally booked the Honeymoon Villa for the entire stay just to make sure it wasn’t taken 😉
  • A bottle of sparkling wine
  • 30 mins couple massage
  • A romantic meal of our choice served on the balcony
  • A special honeymoon commemorative gift from the resort

Our romantic meal on the deck of our honeymoon villa

Breakfast was included with the room rate.  At breakfast we were served with a plate of tropical fruits, yoghurt, oats and coconut water.  After the fruit platter, there was a choice of continental or full English and a choice of fruit juices, tea or coffee.  Breakfast was very hearty and was a good start to the day.  We were so full from breakfast we couldn’t fit in lunch most days.  

The menu at the restaurant was extensive and on most occasions we opted for the ‘specials’ each evening.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner were served at the Waterfront Restaurant.  Paulini’s Pool Bar offered lighter meals, snacks and cocktails.  Happy hour at the pool bar was announced by the sound of the conch horn at 4pm with 20% off drinks.  The CBreezia Pizzeria was open on Saturday and Sundays only offering tasty wood fired pizzas.  We knew when the pizzeria was open by the smell of the wood fire burning in the outside pizza oven!

Cocktails from the restaurant (can’t stop at one!)

Every Friday afternoon, the resort offered a Fiafia show put on by the Seabreeze Resort staff.  The Fiafia show showcases traditional dances, songs, fire knife dance and an insight to the Samoan life.  The staff demonstrate how coconut milk is made, rope made from husks and baskets weaved from palm fronds.  The dinner started at 6.30pm with a selection of traditional Samoan dishes.  I did have slight food envy – guests who chose chicken as a main course ended up with half a bird on their plate!  If you’re super hungry, then select the chicken for the main.  The suckling pig was a little dry and the fruit cake was disappointingly bland.  The dessert of coconut pudding with ice cream was delicious.  You will also be expected to participate with the dances! But it was great fun.

Weaving a basket from palm fronds

For those wanting to explore, the resort offered complimentary use of the kayaks and snorkelling gear.  The cove is small,  excellent for kayaking or to take a dip in the pristine waters of the protected lagoon.  We kayaked past a small island that was home to a large colony of bats and a couple of other secluded beaches, to finally explore the decaying remains of an ancient cathedral.  The water was crystal clear, easy to spot the tropical fishes darting to and fro and we even spotted a blue starfish!  You could also walk along the beach to the right of the Resort and find a secluded lagoon through a forest of palm trees.

Access to the private beach

We hired a car for the day from the Resort and were also given a cell phone to use during our stay.  Hiring the car was the best idea in order to discover the island and driving was so simple as there’s only one main road round the island.  I still don’t understand why the locals drive so slowly during the daytime… we were speedy gonzales (within the speed limit of course)

Each night after the turndown service we would look forward to the snacks and what animal the staff would conjure up from the towels!  Before you leave, the staff come together to sing the farewell song.

Have no idea what animal this is! Yummy snacks

Overall, we had a fantastic and relaxing time.  We found the staff to be friendly, polite and helpful and the food at the restaurant was delicious and reasonably priced.  However, we did feel there could be a couple of improvements with Seabreeze Resort.  We didn’t feel that the owners made that much of an effort to make our stay feel special, considering it was our honeymoon.  The owner Chris was very hands on and front of house but we rarely saw his wife Wendy, which is a shame.  Also there was confusion with breakfast on arrival.  Since we arrived before 7am, on the website it stated that a platter will be provided for arrivals between 9pm-7am.  We did not receive this platter and were told later that evening that as we were had an early check in, the platter wasn’t offered but we could have had breakfast?

Apart from that, we had an amazing stay and the location of the resort is truly special, just like paradise.

Have you visited the islands in the South Pacific?

Fa’afetai!

    All in all sounds like a great honeymoon (even if there were a few bumps). I hands down love those towel animal creations. Favorite part of “island” resorts, as I only seem to get the creations at Isla da.

    • Lana
      Lana 07/05/2017 (10:41)

      I don’t know how they come up with the towel animals! I wish I could do them at home! 🙂
