Lusia’s Lagoon Chalets were born of a great love for Savai’i island. From the very beginning, her owner expressed a strong ambition to protect and maintain the hotel’s mini-slice of tropical rainforest, which is situated alongside a deep turquoise lagoon in the bustling port town of Salelologa. By harnessing her love of nature, Lusia devoted herself to protecting the land from destruction, while offering a window to showcase the natural beauty of Samoan paradise with the rest of the world.
Lusia’s Lagoon Samoa Resort officially opened in 2003, comprised of a few small garden chalets, which were built from the ground-up with local timber; the generosity of a friendly, self-taught carpenter from the village; and a few pairs of strong helping hands.
Later, Lusia’s became home to the award-winning CC’s Restaurant and Bar, and expanded to include additional seaside chalets, a spa, romantic hideaways and covered decks overlooking the pristine waters of her pacific lagoon.
Today, Lusia’s Lagoon Chalets are a refreshing hideaway, which offers an experience distinct from other commercialized resort accommodations on the island. Lusia’s continues to be environmentally-minded by sourcing all of its produce and fresh seafood from local growers and fisherman, and even offering filtered refills for reusable bottle alternatives at a lower cost than single-use plastic water bottles. The hotel grounds are lush with many tropical plants and flowers, natural cool-water tide pools, and a large deck situated over the lagoon: the perfect place for sipping a cocktail and relaxing while the worries of the world drift away.
Guests to the hotel will enjoy taking advantage of Lusia’s unique rustic environment, and connecting to the “real Samoa” through casual conversations with friendly staff from local villages, traditional Samoan cuisine, and plentiful sightings of sea turtles, fish, crabs, snails, lizards and other island creatures. Day tours, kayaks, and local souvenirs are also available on-site.
Lusia’s Lagoon is located within walking distance of both the inter-island ferry wharf and the main marketplace on Savai’i island, providing easy access for daytime visitors and hotel guests to enjoy all Savai’i has to offer.
It would be our pleasure to share our unique Savai’i island chalets with you. We look forward to welcoming you into the Lusia’s Lagoon Family!
