Return to Paradise Beach has it all, a beautiful lagoon, sparkling white sandy beaches, diverse marine life, colourful coral, mineral pools, private forests, spectacular gardens, and banyan trees that tower over the forest canopy.
Samoans have regarded this beach as particularly special and it is nothing short of a spectacular beauty. Return to Paradise Beach was named after the 1953 film starring Gary Cooper and Roberta Haynes. It caught the attention of Hollywood location scouts who deemed it to be the perfect setting for their film.
The beach has since become an icon of Samoa and the traditional landowning families divided it amongst themselves to ensure that everyone had customary ownership and guardianship over a part of the beach, thus preserving it forever.
The resort offers over 93 beautiful beachfront accommodations facing spectacular sunsets and sounds of cascading waves. Room categories include Ocean Breeze, Beach Front and Suites. The Maeva Honeymoon Suite and Presidential Suites offer a separate lounge, deck, private plunge pool and verandah.
The new Beachfront and Garden Villas are available in two and threebedroom configurations. All rooms are air-conditioned and have luxurious beds, marble tiles, granite surfaces, walk-in wardrobes and pure silk curtains, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, lounge chairs and desk.
With over a kilometre of private, pristine beachfront and a marble beachfront chapel, Return to Paradise Resort & Spa offers an incomparable venue to make your wedding day truly all that it can be.
