While wanting to set up my own Samoan resort and accommodation, I also wanted to save and maintain this beautiful ancient Samoan mini rainforest on the island of Savaii. I had a very strong desire and vision of sharing our Samoan nature and paradise with the rest of the world!
From the beginning, I instantly discovered my love for nature, and it was clear that I should assist in any way possible to prevent destruction and to protect what nature I can. I did not think twice about not being able to save my mini forest... I just had to do it!
Lusia’s Lagoon Samoa Resort officially opened in 2003. With the little cash I had saved up, I bought nails and plumbing and various other materials, and then started buying local timber. I learnt off a friendly, self-taught carpenter from our village and managed to convince him to help me. With a few laborers, we went ahead and put together what I still call my Garden Chalets.
Later on, we added the award-winning CC’s Restaurant and Bar, the Lagoon Chalets, Spa, romantic hideaways and covered decks overlooking our pristine Pacific Lagoon. Samoa hotels are not built in one day; it did take some time to get it all together.
Today I enjoy watching our guests take advantage of our unique environment, whether kayaking through the blue lagoon, sipping a refreshing cocktail at sunset or trying our delicious Samoan food. It is our pleasure to share our culture with you. I look forward to welcoming you into the Lusia’s Lagoon Family.
