New jewel for the treasured islands - Aga Reef Resort to open its doors March 2013

Samoa Tourism Authority is proud to announce the opening of Aga Reef Resort - the newest 4 star resort in the picturesque south coast of Upolu

Aga Reef Resort is the brain child of former Samoan Trade Commissioner to New Zealand, Apete Meredith, is the newest addition to Samoa’s stellar line up of deluxe beach front resorts and is expected to be one of the hottest beachfront properties amongst Australian travellers to the islands.

Set along the beautiful Lalomanu Beach, voted by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 Best Paradises on Earth, Aga Reef Resort has a private island which houses 3 island villas, a Sunset Bar for delicious sun downers as well as a swimmingpool.

The island is connected to the mainland by an overwater walkway constructed carefully as to not disturb the beautiful coral clusters and marine life that feature in the waters surrounding the resort. Waterfront villas, Ocean View hotel rooms as well as the reception, main restaurant, bar, spa and the main swimming pool are located on the mainlandsection of the resort.

The kitchen will be headed by Chef Kit Foe - an award winning chef from Wellington who plans to develop a seafood focused, European/Samoan fusion offering to delight Aga’s patrons.

“Many people naturally gravitate to the nation’s capital of Apia not realizing that the best beaches and waterfront resorts are found along south coast of Upolu,” says Peter Sereno of Samoa Tourism Authority.

“The South Coast of Upolu is an emerging destination within an emerging destination and even our PM sees the region rivaling Apia. Big plans are in place for the south coast with plans for the construction of a new wharf for yachts and possibly an airport.”

“Aga Reef Resort is in the perfect location to reap the benefits of the region’s growth and we see this property as a key player in the development of the Alapeita region,” says Peter.

Aga Reef Resort has released some amazing opening specials with rates at 50% off.
