Coconuts bring back overwater fales
Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa Samoa are proud to announce the return of the overwater fale.
Considered the jewel of the resort’s crown, Coconuts was the only property in the South Coast of Upolu to offer this ultimate in luxury accommodation, overlooking the beautiful turquoise waters of the South Pacific.
The original overwater fales were destroyed by the tsunami of 2009.
Designs of the six bigger and better fales have been approved and construction is expected to begin September 1 with a completion date of December 31, 2012 in time to greet the new year.
Richard Skewes from Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa says that the construction of the overwater fales is the final and perhaps most exciting chapter of the Coconuts rebuild.
“These new fales will be bigger and better than the originals. We expect to complete all six fales over a four month period with our in-house guests comfort in mind. Most of the construction work will be done off-site with little to no impact on in-house guests.”
“However, as you would expect, the raising of the fales to their new apartment homes will involve quite a bit of work but the results will definitely be worth it. We will be offering some amazing stay/pay and resort credit specials during the building process,” says Richard.
Samoa Tourism Authority says the time is perfect for the return of the overwater fale offering to Samoa.
“With tourist numbers to Samoa increasing we are excited to have the overwater fales back,” says Samoa Tourism Authority.
“The waters of Samoa is one of our treasures and nothing beats sleeping over the gentle waters of the South Pacific and the billion stars of the Milky Way above you,” says STA.
