World class authentic service and location. A culinary (certified organic) extravaganza with so much food grown on the Plantation. Paul and Joan know how to be the consumate hosts. The best place that we've stayed in our 3 trips to Samoa by far. You must stay! David, Chris, Nick and Kane.

Joan and Paul are such amazing and warm hosts who go out of their way to make sure your stay in Samoa is great. Their house has everything you could need and want for any type of vacation. The grounds are enormous with fruit trees and vegetation native to Samoa. The athletic court and swimming pool are perfect. The large outdoor dining area - which is covered by a roof - is the perfect place to spend time with friends and family and soak up the warm breeze and fresh air off the ocean. The indoor living area and kitchen along with the bedrooms are clean and neat and quite large and are not lacking in any way. There is wifi and a/c along with a tv and game console to use. Paul is an outstanding chef and will gladly prepare food for your whole party that is tasty and locally sourced. He will even gladly prepare the fish you catch! Joan and Paul have connections with so many people throughout Samoa and can give you advise on where to go and what to see - make sure you take their advise - they will not steer you wrong. They will go out of their way to make sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. You will experience Samoa the way the locals do by staying here. Our stay was 100% amazing and I hope to visit again!

We were fortunate to be able to visit Independent Samoa after working in American Samoa. Paul and Joan have created a special place in this beautiful part of the South Pacific. The property consists of 3 units (one being their home). We stayed in the large 2 bedroom house. Beautifully decorated, super comfortable! There is a covered outside eating area and the front has all glass doors that overlook the pool and grounds, view of the ocean too! Paul went to the fish market and gave us two kinds of fantastic fish, which we cooked in the gourmet kitchen. Joan was very helpful giving us ideas of things to see and do. While the north side of the island is bustling with villages, the south side is much quieter. Much of the island is growing bananas, papaya, taro and coconuts. We saw sheep, cows, horses, pigs and plenty of dogs and chickens. The Samoan people are warm and friendly. The children loved to wave at us and wanted us to honk at them. We spent one fun day in the city of Apia. The craft or "flea market" is a must stop. Most of the tourists are from New Zealand or Australia. Ifiele'ele Plantation is the best place to stay in Samoa and experience the real island. We stopped at a number of resorts but will return to Ifiele'ele if we can come back.

Ifiele’ele Plantation is run and managed by Fogalepolo (Paul) Lepou and Joan Macfarlane. Born in New Zealand, Paul is of Samoan descent. Joan originally hails from Melbourne. Paul was in the New Zealand army for 20 years before venturing into overseas development work in Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific. Joan is a public health professional and also worked in the Pacific before coming to Samoa.
In 2009, Paul and Joan came to Samoa and embarked on the challenge of developing Paul’s family landholding of 15 acres, thereby fulfilling a life-long dream of Paul’s mother. Paul’s mother, Su’a Siaposuisui Faiga, is the family matai and one of the high-ranking chiefs in Fasitoo-Uta. The Su’a is sometimes in residence at Ifiele’ele Plantation.
After 5 years of hard work we have many amusing tales of adventure to tell, have built a stunning home and living complex and begun to develop the plantation. We have also acquired 2 adorable dogs, Bomba and Missy, and a family of 6 goats (at last count). We have 2 Muscovy ducks and are hoping to expand the flock. Crops at the Plantation include Tahitian Limes, Papaya, Banana, Pineapple and a variety of other citrus and fruit trees. We continue to cultivate more land as time goes by.
