A visit to Aganoa Lodge Samoa offers surfers and non-surfers alike an unparalleled experience, while preserving the natural and cultural integrity of one of the last untrodden surf wonderlands on the planet.
Every aspect of the Aganoa Lodge Samoa guest experience is designed to immerse you in Savai’i’s pristine natural environment. Our goal is to transport you to another time and place. A world of open air and open spaces, of falling asleep to the soft patter of rain on a tin roof or waking to the kiss of a light trade-wind breeze sliding off of the ocean. At Aganoa Lodge Samoa we invite you to unplug from your busy world and experience something perfect. Perfect and simple.
Aganoa Lodge Samoa is located on a five-acre oceanfront parcel bordering on the Tafua Rain forest Preserve with exclusive access to a 180 meter white sand beach and crystal clear lagoon. The beach is protected by a barrier reef making ideally suited for swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing.
The Lodge is a full service all-inclusive surf lodge featuring fully guided surfing experiences for a maximum of eight guests while also catering to non-surfers and their families who enjoy an active travel experience. Our common area is a huge open-plan space that features a bar, lounge area, and individual surf-observations areas. Our beautiful white sand Aganoa Beach is flanked by manicured grounds including a common sundeck featuring umbrellas and sun lounges with a view of the break directly in front of the lodge. Our bar is also accessible from the main deck area.
The Lodge is fully equipped with complimentary snorkel gear, bicycles, sea kayaks, fishing gear, yoga mats to enjoy all the property has on offer. We also offer daily hike, cultural tours and eco-excursions to the nearby waterfalls and blowholes.
Our “rooms” are simple. Eight stand-alone, open-air fales (bungalows) each surrounded by its own “privacy screen” intended to give guests their own perfect carved-out piece of paradise. Each unit is constructed almost entirely of reclaimed timber and lava rocks collected on-site, and each features a king or queen-sized four-post bed cooled by high-speed mounted fans, en suite bathroom with open-sky shower (with Molton Brown amenities), power outlets and private porch decks for relaxing or watching the surf (literally steps from the lagoon beach).
- Mosquito nets, high-speed fans and en-suite bathrooms
- King or Queen Sized beds (depending on group configurations)
- 2x daily housekeeping
- Global roaming service available for guests’ mobile telephones
- USB connectivity devices are available for rent on-site for guests
- Complimentary use of house computer for Internet access
Meals are all-inclusive – with the exception of select beverages – at the Aganoa Lodge Samoa and have been designed to emphasize fresh, healthy, super-food/performance-enhancing nourishment to maintain peak energy levels during the experience.
Aganoa Lodge Samoa offers a delicious and authentic set-menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the oceanfront restaurant. Locally sourced and sustainable ingredients anchor a menu of Samoan delicacies blended with Western cuisine. Stars are fresh fish caught daily right offshore and organic fruits and veggies grown in our on-site organic hydroponic facility.
There are over 10 different waves within an hour’s run of the lodge; the majority are within 30 minutes. The surf here is ultra-consistent, with lefts and rights that work in all tides. Best of all, the variety of surf offers many options for all levels of surfers and equipment.
Over the past 30 years we’ve been in the region, we’ve had the privilege to “discover” many waves and surf a multitude of others. The incredible part about most breaks on Savai’i (including the main break out front) is how accessible they are. While most breaks on neighboring Upolu require a boat ride to an outer reef, nearly all of Savai’i’s waves are a short paddle from the Lodge.
