Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa

About the Resort

Set on the beachfront, surrounded by exotic flowers and swaying palms, Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa is picturesque, peaceful and has everything you’d want in a tropical island escape. Gaze out upon an uninterrupted horizon, stroll leisurely on the unpopulated stretch of pristine sandy beach, make use of the exquisite resort facilities and completely relax and unwind! Capped off with friendly staff and spacious accommodation, this Matatufu resort is one you won’t quickly forget.

Saletoga Sands Resort is the first in Samoa to introduce a strong focus on the environment. Proactive and inspiring strategies include the elimination of bottled water in the rooms (instead, guests are given a refillable jug with 4 complimentary drinking water stations around the resort); the introduction of paper straws at the bars; an eco-friendly sewage treatment plant and air-dried laundry. The hotel even crushes all glass themselves which is then converted into sand and redistributed around the resort!

Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa was once a coconut plantation. The resort maintains a strong connection to the land, with the natural landscapes heroed wherever you look and the rooms and suites are light-filled and airy. High roofs, exposed timber beams and locally-inspired furnishings add character to each modern space. Lush landscaped gardens surround and paths lead quickly to the pool and the beach no matter where your room is positioned. Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa is the perfect place to go for a luxurious Samoan experience—experience the best of resort and village life and discover the true meaning of paradise!

Resort Location


Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa is located on the south-east coast of the Samoan Island, Upolu. Set just outside the village of Matatufu, it offers the perfect escape from the outside world, occupying its own private slice of beachside paradise. The resort is less than a 45-minute drive from the capital city, Apia and a 1-hour drive from the Faleolo International Airport.

Things To Do


Embrace the beauty of Samoa during your stay at Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa. Your eyes will certainly get a treat, whether you spend your days by the pool, looking out across the turquoise lagoon, kayaking atop it, or diving right in to snorkel across vibrant marine life (most visible at low tide due to the calmer conditions). During your stay, embark on a tour. Day tours operate from the resort, taking guests to the breathtakingly beautiful To Sua Ocean Trench and the Togitogiga Waterfalls, both within 32-kilometres. Tafatafa Beach is just a 15-minute drive away, guests can explore the Apia Markets, less than 45-minutes away, plus there are tours for those who want to go turtle feeding, rock sliding and more!

Great place to stay for families and couples. We couldn’t have had a better holiday. The staff, the rooms, the pool and the whole experience was perfect. We highly recommend Saletoga as a place to stay. We will definitely be returning!
