London, 30 September 2020 - With the increased amount of time spent on Zoom webinars, Skype calls, GoTo meetings and finding oneself constantly attached to electronic devices, more travellers are seeking destinations to retreat away from modern technologies. For those looking to take on a detox post COVID, Beautiful Samoa is the idyllic destination to completely unplug away from the digital world.
Situated in the heart of the South Pacific between New Zealand and Hawaii, Samoa is known as “The Treasured Islands of the South Pacific” and “The True Heart of Polynesia”. Its natural beauty welcomes visitors with turquoise blue waters, clear skies and pristine white beaches.
Here you can relax on Lalomanu Beach, named one of the most beautiful beaches in the world; the perfect spot to go back to basic, soak up the sun or watch the starry skies with its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the scenic mountains of Upolu. For a complete break from the hussle and bussle of modern life, visitors can opt for a traditional beach front accommodation and spend the night in one of Samoa’s beach fales. An overnight stay in these local huts offers a unique WiFi-free experience to fall asleep under the stars and share the life of the local villagers.
With an average temperature of 30 degrees all year long, Samoa’s main two islands offer plenty of opportunities to reconnect with nature too. Discover To Sua Ocean Trench, a 30-metre deep crater filled with sea water, get splashing at the “Papaseea Sliding Rocks” (natural water slides) on Upolu; lose yourself in the tropical Falealupo Rainforest Reserve or marvel at the spectacular Alofaaga Blowholes on Savai’i.
A sanctuary for a perfect getaway, Samoa focuses on what matters the most: its people and a 3,000 year old way of life - Fa’a Samoa - a guideline for every Samoan on how to lead their lives by celebrating and embracing traditional values, their culture and environment.
