Salani Surf Resort

The new and improved Salani Surf Resort has now reopened, to provide the best of Samoa’s surf, culture & natural beauty. Salani is situated at the mouth of the Fuipisia River, on the southeast coast of Upolu, Samoa’s main  island.

Directly in front of the resort, the river has created a reef pass with two excellent breaks, Salani Right and Salani Left, both accessible by a short boat ride.  Other south coast breaks are accessible by boat or land transfers – see Salani Surf – Upolu. To ensure uncrowded surf and personal service, the number of surfers at Salani Surf Resort is limited to 12.


Totally re-built since the tsunami, Salani retains its superb location where the river meets the sea. There’s a beautiful beach a short walk away and fantastic waves easily accessed by the resort’s own boats.

The brand new river-front fales feature modern en-suite bathrooms, and an elevated design that gives a brilliant outlook over the water and the lush tropical landscape. All the fales have a verandah where guests can relax, take in the view and enjoy a cool drink and the gentle ocean breezes. This is the Pacific island lifestyle, a million miles from the hassle and stress of big city living.

The meals are prepared with the freshest local and imported fruits, vegetables and meats served in generous proportions to satisfy the largest appetites. Italian, American, Mexican, European, Indian, Aussie barbecue, vegetarian and Samoan dishes are served on a rotating basis. All meals are included.


As well as surfing, you can do island tours to waterfalls and freshwater swimming holes. Take a shopping trip to Apia, go fishing, sea kayaking, snorkelling or scuba diving. In the evening, have a quiet drink, a moonlight walk or watch a ‘fia fia‘ cultural show. Don’t just watch – join in and be part of a traditional Samoan celebration!
