Samoa Voted Best Wedding Destination in the South Pacific

News and Lifestyle Giant CNN GO (www.cnngo.com) has voted Samoa’s Coconuts Beach Club Resort and Spa as the best wedding venue in the South Pacific, ranking it number 8 in the world.

Chosen for its unique and intimate ceremonies, the site highlights Samoa’s unique culture to make your wedding memorable.

“Only in Samoa can you really experience authentic Polynesian culture and CNNGo are 100% correct in suggesting this for a wedding with a difference,” says Peter Sereno of Samoa Tourism Authority in Australia.

“We have a 3,000 year old tradition called Fa’a Samoa that is found nowhere else in the South Pacific.  Fa’a Samoa celebrates the importance of family and marriage so you can be sure your wedding will be a memorable one when we incorporate elements of this tradition to your ceremony,” says Peter.

Resorts including Coconuts Beach Club offer Samoan wedding packages for every budget, incorporating Samoan traditions such as the blowing of the conch shell and an address from the local “talking chiefs” representing each family.

Peter says “Samoa is truly blessed, having been awarded the ‘best value destination’ in the region, we now have the ‘most stunning wedding location’ in the South Pacific to add to our list of accolades.  Samoa is located in the heart of the Pacific, so visit our beautiful treasured islands and see for yourselves what all the hype is about!”
