Your Dream Vacation is Here

Return to Paradise Resort & Spa Upolu, Samoa

Return to Paradise Resort & Spa is located in Lefaga, on the southern coast of Upolu and was named after the 1953 film starring Gary Cooper and Roberta Haynes.
Samoans have regarded this beach particularly special, and it is nothing short of spectacular beauty, after all, it caught the attention of Hollywood location scouts who determined it to be the perfect setting for their film.
The beach then became an iconic symbol of Samoa, deemed so valuable that traditional landowning families divided it amongst themselves. This ensured that everyone had customary guardianship over part of the beach, thus preserving it forever.
When you arrive here, you are not just visiting a resort; rather you are being hosted by the very families who have cared for this land for over a thousand years.
Return to Paradise literally has it all; a beautiful lagoon, sparkling white sandy beaches, dazzling marine life, colourful coral, mineral pools, private forests, spectacular gardens, and banyan trees that tower of the forest canopy.
Resort facilities include, a restaurant, café, bar, 4 swimming pools, a day spa, tour desk, conference room, and outdoor gym.
The resort has a diversity of over 60 beautiful beachfront accommodations in 7 different types of rooms to choose from, and each facing spectacular sunsets and sounds of cascading waves.
All rooms have luxurious beds, marble tiles, granite surfaces, walk-in wardrobes and pure silk curtains. Room amenities include air conditioning, fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, lounge chairs and desk.
The resort is currently building their 2 & 3 Bedroom Garden and Beachfront Villas and look to have the Beachfront Villas completed by 01 January 2018, and the Garden Villas on 01 April 2018.
