Samoa Overview

If you are looking to travel a little bit further for your honeymoon then head to Samoa for a postcard of natural beauty. With 10 islands to explore there are plenty of different breathtaking environments to experience. The two main islands of Samoa have rainforest covered rugged volcanic peaks with vast valleys which contain lush Banyan trees and beautiful cascading waterfalls; these drop into sparkling blue rivers all cutting their way to the stunning South Pacific Ocean. All this is then surrounded by a wonderous coastline with white sandy beaches lined by green palms. You can cool off in the blue lagoons and look out to the other islands which make up the Samoa Archipelago. Take a boat trip to some of these smaller islands and explore their beautiful coral reefs and South Pacific wildlife. With so much to do or just the chance to relax a honeymoon to Samoa would be a truly unforgettable experience.

Getting Married in Samoa

In Samoa tying knots is an ancient tradition. Known as the last bastion of Polynesian culture, Samoa is famous all over the world as the only place in the South Pacific where you can have an authentic Polynesian experience.

Samoa is blessed with year round warm weather and with its sparkling white sandy beaches, stunning waterfalls and lush tropical rainforest gardebs, Samoa is the perfect romantic destination for your speical day. 

According to Fa'a Samoa, marriage is a sacred union to be honoured and respected so expect your wedding day to be a memorable and hassle free event. There are many incredible resorts that are able to cater for your wedding and honeymoon.

 All the services you require for your tropical island wedding can be found in Samoa. Ministers, venues, caterers, photographers and cars can all easily be arranged by hotels, resorts and tour operators. Traditionally weddings are a grand celebration in Samoa. Samoan brides wear a pale head-dress and the groom wears and ula (floral necklace). Brides are led to the groom by a troop of Samoan warriors and serenaded in song or backed by the fierce beats of Samoan drums.

 While none of these cultural touches are mandatory for your destination wedding in Samoa, they would provide a unique touch to your tropical nuptials.
