Samoa - Into Water & Beyond holiday travel guide part 1/4

submitted by holidays on 10/23/15 1

Aggie Greys Resort ( www.aggiegreys.com ) is located close to the international airport so is the perfect place to stay after the flight and relax before embarking on your Samoan adventure. The rooms are comfortable and overlook the stunning lagoon area. They also provide free bottled water in the room. We had an overnight flight so we freshened up before heading out for a dive with Aqua Samoa ( www.aquasamoa.com ) in the warm waters of the surrounding coral reefs and lagoons. The colourful plate corals were stunning and the warm water made for a comfortable and enjoyable dive. Back at the resort it was time to relax and enjoy a few cocktails in the pool bar and on their secluded lagoon beach. There are a few different restaurants there to enjoy a meal at too. Close to the resort is Manono Wharf, where you can head over to Manono Island for a day. It is only 4km from Upolu and you can jump on a boat to take you over there for as little as a few dollars per person, however these can be very infrequent with no real guaranteed departure times. So you can also organise a private boat for a return journey from about SAT$60. Visiting the island is like taking a step back in time and there are no dogs or cars there, only a walking track that takes you around the island and the 4 villages that make up this island. There is also overnight accommodation f you want to stay longer and really get in to the traditional lifestyle there and escape the outside world for a few days. We then head in to Apia, Samoa's capital city. This is a buzzing and vibrant city with a lot going on. We stayed at the iconic Aggie Greys Hotel while here. This hotel is one of the longest running in Samoa and has a very rich history. We were also lucky enought o be here on their Fia Fia Cultural night, which is an extravaganza of traditional dancing, music and food ( www.aggiegreys.com ) For more of our 2013 Samoa travel video guides visit one of our travel channel www.funtraveltv.com www.intowaterandbeyond.com
