  • Once upon a time there were two people who dreamed of being married on a tropical island. They searched the www for that special place. Their dream became reality when they discovered Coconuts Beach Club on a beautiful island in Samoa. Thank you for making our wedding dreams come true! We truly appreciated your sense of service to ensure that our wedding and our stay was memorable and special. Here are a few photos (taken by Barry) … Thank you Jennifer and Barry for allowing us to share your piece of Paradise. To Ned and Lina, sincere thanks for organizing everything and being our witnesses. A very special hug and thank you to Mika and his team. We are now both on a strict diet to work off all those excess kilos from enjoying those delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

  • Dear Coconuts team! Thank you for the online-newsletter – a very good idea!!! It reminds me to our wonderful time we had at Coconuts in February … Thank you again for making our (first) stay so enjoyable! Here are some photos, especially for Mika. The “green one’ is the remarkable view while having our breakfast and on the “barstool-cat-picture” you can see my dad (a five-time-nut) in the background.

  • Talofa Barry from the cold and wet UK. It was delightful to receive your news. I am sorry to say we were remiss and did not write to you when we returned from Coconuts. … Coconuts was a haven. Our holiday was to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary and we “oldies” could not have come to a more romantic setting. … We love our Sue Stagner print and have two lovely framed photographs of the gecko pool and Beach Fales. Many times we have looked at them and thought of the evenings we sat around the bar and then after enjoying one of Mika’s wonderful meals returning to our beach front villa to sit outside with a suitable night cap! The visit to the church was also an experience we will never forget. All my life I have dreamed of dancing like Dorothy Lamour did in those South Pacific Island movies. And at last I had the chance on the night of the Fire Dance. It was great fun and we have the video to prove it.…thanks to you, Mika, Ned, and everyone for helping us to complete a truly memorable holiday.

  • Hello, or is it Talofa from … one of your first patrons 10+ years ago. Well, I’m free of the constraints of work…it even hurts to say…the word. Somehow Western Samoa came to mind. Have been spending a great deal of time in the Arctic and felt it was time to “thaw out”. To this end…how’s the snorkeling? Beach lounging? … fill me in on your rates and activities.

  • Dear Sirs … my wife and I had the pleasure to be your guests in the Coconuts resort. We really enjoyed it very much and we will never forget the nice time we had with you at the resort. For every good things the Coconuts staff has done for us we thank you again and are sending you enclosed photos we had taken… Whenever I see an airplane in the sky I just like to be in Samoa. The people were extremely friendly and helpful everywhere.

  • Dear Jennifer & Barry, We have just returned from two weeks (our second stay) at Coconuts. We are already planning to return next year. What a jewel. It is one of the few places to go, with no TV, no radio, no newspaper… Our time with Ned, Lina, Mika et al. is just wonderful and the food is to die for. We run a yoga retreat in Mexico … Thanks for having a place we can retreat to.

  • Dear Barry & Jennifer! Thank you so much for the Coconuts Beach Club Band CD. …The music brought back a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings and the desire to visit Samoa again and again. We are overwhelmed by the genuine sincerity of the Samoan people and specifically by the personal interest and touches from you and the Coconuts Beach Club. We experienced nothing but exceptional service and personal kindness from the Coconuts Beach Club and we hope to come back and visit in the near future.

  • Hi Mika & Ned – Just a quick note to say a BIG thank you and to your staff at Coconuts … for the wonderful hospitality! … we had a great 8 days! The food and the service was great, the people were friendly and the atmosphere was so relaxed – an excellent holiday to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

  • Having spent the day at So… resort in Fiji (name withheld to protect the guilty) whilst in transit, we realize how fortunate we were in choosing Samoa and Coconuts Beach Club for our week’s stopover between Australia and the U.K. Many thanks for creating the perfect atmosphere for a week in Paradise.

  • Coconuts is a beautiful secluded place on a beautiful island – we loved the location, the resort architecture and the free and easy atmosphere, no rules or regulations, no high rise modern buildings, no large scale tourism, we don’t know many places like that in the world these days!
