AUTHENTIC SAMOAN CULTURE
Showcasing the Best of Our (Samoan) World
If there’s one unique thing that we ‘all’ have in common, it is our various cultural identities. No, that is not an oxymoron. Culture, in its most eclectic and beautiful ways, sets us apart from the rest of the world and helps to identify and shape each of us into who we are… and we are Samoan, proud and true.
At Return to Paradise Resort, you can expect to experience our Samoan way of life through activities such as basket weaving, umu (underground cooking), prayer sessions, island night bands, visits to nearby villages and even thrilling fire dances. While some of these are showpieces, we are far more than that, and we hope you see and learn, and most importantly, feel the real ‘Samoa’ in every personal conversation, smile and encounter while you stay with us.
Samoans take tremendous pride in the landscaping of our homes, properties and environment, and this is also evident all around the resort. It is manicured exactly as we manicure our homes and villages. It is not a resort to us, it is simply a bigger guest house. It has been created with Samoan architecture, carvings and gardens that are designed to make you, as our guests, feel special and invited into our very own homes. Our resort was designed with love and a Samoan touch. It has to be… for this is the Samoan thing to do.
