Virgin Cove Resort is hidden away at the most beautiful natural beach area behind the deep forest of Saanapu village on the south coast of Upolu island. We do not know if we should call this place a hotel, hostel, backpackers or a deluxe resort, as there is no name for the finest of natural beauty.
This is just a dream come through, a little kid that lived in our mind, the one that longed for the South Seas. Maybe you too had a dream of that ideal Island you one day would give your heart to. Each day you carried that dream with you, waiting to be released and given to the island and a place that was worthy. Maybe this is the place that the little kid in your mind has been dreaming of ...
In harmony with the nature we let you stay in one of our traditional "Fales" (huts) just a few steps from the ocean, the walls are made of woven coconut leafs and your mattress is on the floor that is covered with hand made mats. If you prefer the more western style, one of our comfortable Garden Bungalows or Beach Bungalow with your own toilet and shower will be ready for you. Our power is 230V and the water comes mostly from the rain.
Virgin Cove is located on one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches with the whitest and smoothest sand you can imagine, away from everything, outside the civilization were you can relax in harmony with nature. The resort is situated on twentyfive acres with half a mile of our own beach. West of us are more untouched beaches for miles...no one living is there. In front of us is a fantastic lagoon with a coral reef one mile out, a perfect place for swimming, snorkelling and windsurfing. Landside the rainforest comes down all the way to the beach, further back are three miles of forest with eucalyptus trees and flying foxes. To the east is the very traditional village of Sa’anapu where you can experience more of the Fa’a Samoa culture.
Virgin Cove offers 5 types of accommodations.
This is the perfect accommodation for you who wants to get away from it all with comfort. Enjoy your own beach just in front of the large verandah. The Beach Bungalow has 1 bedrooms with double bed. It is furnished with a fridge and fan. The bathroom has an open air shower. Ask for Rates.
