If you strive to fill your body and soul with goodness, or if you’re a traveling foodie, you’ve found your own Garden of Eden at the Samoan Highland Hideaway. In this remote hillside setting your plantation and vacation homes are nestled just off the beaten path in their own private valley. When you arrive you’re welcomed by hosts Maria and Tim, along with the splendid tropical fragrance reserved for those fortunate enough to be living in a tropical plantation paradise.
Maria’s the consummate hostess, having dedicated her life to helping you choose the special harvest that will create memorable culinary experiences. She gladly tours guests through her gardens introducing them to papaya, coconut, pineapple, lychee, starfruit and an abundance of exotic fare.
Cooking and breaking bread together provides a unique opportunity for conversation, and there’s nothing Maria likes to converse about more than holistic wellness and cultural preservation. The labours of her passions are evident in the lush plantation fruit and floral gardens surrounded the vacation homes.
The Samoan Highland Hideaway is committed to leading the way in eco-tourism and exclusively supports local families and businesses as well as through well nurtured relationships with the people of Aleisa and nearby Apia.
You can spend time in the gardens helping Maria select fruit and vegetables as you prepare and present an authentic Samoan feast – or you can simply feast on the homegrown goodness of a simple meal prepared in your chef equipped kitchen!
Seafood is caught daily and sold fresh from market providing a wide array of south Pacific Ocean delicacies that quite simply are the best in the world. Choosing from daily catches of yellow-fin tuna, octopus, crab and a medley of delights is easy on the pocketbook and great for the local economy.
Having said all of this, our foods are organically grown, freshly harvested and using sustainable practices that guarantee a food experience that is truly farm to table good – the way Mother Nature intended.
