My wife and I stayed 5 nights, arriving by taxi from the APW Airport before 5PM. Note; a pre scheduled shuttle is available at 26 WS tala. We were greeted by our hostess who verified our names/prepayment and provided the room key, 2 bottles of cold water and a small carton of milk for coffee or tea. She referred all questions of car rental to searching various Apia providers and offered a free sim card in absence of wifi. Upper floor room #8 was tiled with a queen bed, new refer, desk with hot pot & coffee, then TV with 8 channels(most religious supporting Australia/NZ news). The tile bathroom had a new sink and toilet, a large walk-in shower without a curtain, small bars of soap and quick hot water. The AC was cool and quiet, adjusted with a remote control. A sliding glass door opened to a balcony with table/chairs and a beautiful view over the garden pool and the busy Lalovaga Avenue to the homes perched on Mt. Vaea. The 7:30AM breakfast included fresh fruit, lemonade, pancakes, cooked eggs, toast with peanut butter/jam, regular coffee and sporadic pastry. The quiet host tended the office, maintained the clean pool, gave us new bulbs for our bedlamps and rented room routers. We appreciated the hotel’s adult atmosphere with the ‘no children’ policy. We walked 100m west to the modest Foodlands/Alan’s supermarkets, 1 km north to central Apia’s cathedral/American Library, over to ENT cafe/car rental and the nearby produce market.

You can really see the love that has gone into creating this fabulous boutique hotel. Lupe and Dean are kind and welcoming hosts and we had some great chats with them looking out over the beautifully lit garden. The room was very comfortable and we fully enjoyed some afternoon dips in the pool. This will be our go-to spot if we stay in Apia again. We think it’s far more enjoyable than the big resorts where you’ll never get the personal attention to detail that you’ll find at Vaea Hotel. Excellent value and an unforgettable stay.

My partner was a Peace Corps volunteer in Apia in the early 70s and always wanted to go back for a visit so we finally managed the trip this year. She reserved a variety of lodgings on both islands, Upolu and Savaii, for us to stay at over our three week stay and Vaea Hotel in Apia was a perfect beginning to our Return to Samoa. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood behind an unassuming gate. I still remember the effect of walking through that gate the first time and seeing the garden and the pool and the beautiful surroundings. It felt like a sanctuary. Lupe, Dean and their son Shane were wonderful hosts and Lupe in particular prepared lovely breakfasts often with a traditional Samoan dish to accompany the freshly made eggs, pancakes, fresh fruit, coffee and other goodies. The rooms are spare but complete with everything you need. Each one looks out over the garden and pool and the birds wake you in the mornings with their singing. One tip: ask Lupe for recommendations for cafes and restaurants since there isn't much to eat within close proximity to the hotel. If you want to stay in town (rather than up on the hill), then don't hesitate to choose Vaea Hotel on Togafu'afu'a Road.
