Accommodation, no matter where you are traveling to is often a key part of your trip, whether it be a luxury resort to relax by the pool, sipping cocktails or a budget backpacker style hostel where you are bound to meet some likeminded people in the process. Your Accommodation is particularly important when staying on an island like Samoa, where places to stay are in high demand. As we mention in our ‘what to know before you go, a guide to the Samoan Islands’, despite the country consisting of two larger and eight small islands, the entire land mass is still tiny, which, as you can imagine, makes accommodation hard to come by in some areas.

With this in mind, if you are currently in the throes of organising a whirlwind adventure to Samoa, accommodation is something you are going to want to book in advance and to avoid any disappointment we have compiled a simple guide to top places to stay on the island, whatever your plans or budget.

[NOTE: I visited and stayed at many of these resorts as a guest of the Samoan Tourism Authority and Blogilicious, although all opinions remain my own]
