You will stay at Litia Sini Beach Resort in traditional Samoan falé accommodation. Imagine waking up to the sights and sound of waves caressing a golden shoreline. The beach-side accommodation comes in the form of falés, traditional Samoan bungalows, situated above the beautiful white sandy beach, only steps from the sea.

Traditional falés are usually built with few posts, often with no walls, and a thatched roof with a round or oval shape. The falés at the resort are constructed in a modern yet traditional Samoan style to ensure coolness inside, whilst remaining open to the fantastic ocean views.

You will sleep in a comfortable double-bed, right on the beach. Sheets, towels, and mosquito nets are provided. All the falés have lights and an electrical outlet so you can charge your devices, and a ceiling fan is installed to keep you cool at night.

The falés at Litia Sini are arranged in two rows. From the beachfront ocean view falé you can experience the splendid view of sunsets and the grandeur of sunrises against Nu'utele Island directly from your balcony. The garden beach falés are the second row of bungalows. Situated by the peaceful, well-maintained floral gardens you still get to see the ocean, just not as direct as from the front row.

This retreat will take place in Upolu island in Samoa, an independent state located in the South Pacific Ocean that used to be known as Western Samoa. With a population of around 185 000, many Samoans have migrated to other countries such as New Zealand and Australia. There are now more Samoans living outside of Samoa than within it. Samoa has a low crime rate, and is considered a safe destination to visit.

Made up primarily of two islands, Upolu and Savai'i, this Polynesian country is situated south of the equator, midway between New Zealand and Hawaii, in the South Pacific Ocean. The islands are a result of volcanic activity - though none of the remaining volcanic structures on the islands are currently active.

Savai'i is geographically larger than Upolu and is the sixth largest island in all of Polynesia. Though smaller in geographic size, Upolu island has a larger population and holds Samoa's capital city of Apia on it. Lita Sini Beach Resort is located on Lalomanu beach which is on the South Coast of Upolu island.
