This hotel has been primarily used by local businssmen but is turning self into a resort. There are three types of room. the top range has hot water heated by solar power. The standard room has only cold water, but in this climate this is hardly a hardship. In the well tended garden are fales with just a double bed. You have to go through the garden for the shower and toilet. The staff are fantastically friendly and attentive and the swimming pool is basic but very functional. Kyak hire at 10 talle per day (£3) is great.

Today we had another early start as our ferry to Savai'i left at 8am. Ita had arranged with the hotel to have a take away breakfast ready at reception for us at 6:30. It was only a ten minute drive to the ferry from the hotel so I'm not sure why we had to leave so early, especially as the tickets were pre booked and paid.
The trip across to Savai'i takes an hour and the water was perfectly ...
Although the following morning allowed us more time to enjoy what was now by far my favourite place to stay (Seriously, visit Samoa just to stay here and it will be worth it!), it was tinged with the impending doom of our exit. Breakfast was served in the treehouse which we ate on the balcony looking out towards the ocean (seriously, if you are reading this, why have you not booked your ticket already?) and did, of course, comprise a delicious send off. Having said goodbye to ...
... there would be every possibility that we could have already walked past Ma Tree as it would be unlikely to be signposted and therefore we would have little idea how to distinguish one tree from the others. To our relief, this was to prove a categorically incorrect assumption, as Ma Tree, when it finally came into view, vastly exceeded my expectations and was most easily distinguishable due to its size. In particular, the huge roots of the tree were so impressively large ...
... careful!). These were located near the highest point of the island where we then descended on foot through the spectacular rainforest into a valley where little waterfalls along the rocks allowed one to slide into their small pools of water. As luck would have it, we chanced upon a group of local lads who were having a great time demonstrating how to 'ski' down the rocks at full speed on their feet into what was a very small safe landing zone - any loss of balance would lead ...
... a few u-turns, a couple of loops back on ourselves and buying a huge bunch of bananas for directions off a lady at a side road market we made it in one piece. We paid $5 each to enter. There were 205 steps down and it was very steep, once at the bottom it became apparent that there was not enough water to slide down. All the pools were shallow and the water flow down the rocks was not going to be enough to slide down without hurting - a lot. So we had a paddle and a sunbathe and hopped ...
