Our Story

Moanalisa Hotel is a small family run boutique hotel/resort named after our 2 beautiful daughters Moana and Lisa who now manage and work at the hotel. The hotel was established in 2010 and is managed by the family making it very much a family operation. The hotel is located in the village of Vaitele on the Main North Coast Rd between Apia and the airport only a few minutes from Apia city centre.

​Close to many local amenities including transport to/from the city and airport, car rental, banking facilities, etc.

Our Gardens

Our gardens form a lush cornucopia of tropical and fragrant flora surrounding a resort style pool and spa. Relax and unwind beside the pool and gardens with a good book and freshly picked tropical coconut or refreshing cocktail from our restaurant and bar.

Restaurant & Bar

Moanalisa Hotel boasts one of the finest restaurants on the island. Our trained chefs serve an impressive selection of both local and international styled cuisine. Choose from a selection of light snacks, sandwiches and burgers or experience one of our signature island inspired dishes. Whatever your preference, you're sure to find a dish that satisfies your palette. Dine in the restaurant/bar or choose a table in the tranquil poolside garden setting.

Our on-site bar features a comprehensive selection of wines, spirits, beers, mixed drinks, cocktails and soft drinks. Enjoy live music and dancing on Fri & Sat nights.
