Well, I'm sure you've all heard by now about the tsunami that hit there yesterday. Awful, I hate hearing about these disasters, especially with loss of life
I hope the people can recover sooner than later from this disaster. And my heart goes out to those affected and who have lost loved ones...
So weird thing is, I've never even given Samoa a second thought as a travel destination. I've been looking at many pics of the destruction but also other ones, and it's total paradise, absolutely gorgeous! How come no one talks about it? I have never seen a single post about it on here.
Look at this pic - does that not make you drool or what??
So I guess two beautiful resorts have been destroyed, according to the news report. I looked them up, one is the Coconuts Beach Club: www.coconutsbeachclub.com. Do you know they have overwater bungalows there for only $399/night? That's awesome compared to Bora Bora prices... The other one is Sinalei Reef Resort & Spa: www.sinalei.ws. It's really nice too. Check out the Honeymoon Fale Villa, beautiful!
Hope they can rebuild those resorts. I am seriously putting Samoa on my travel wish list...
Has anyone ever been there or thought of going?
