Overview

a Touch of SAMOA - A local Massage & Beauty Haven where we specialize in Foot massages and Full Body Massages. Our massage style is a unique blend of foreign techniques with a Touch of SAMOA which we feel makes the difference. We happily cater to 'walk ins' but it is always best to call, email or Facebook message us to check availability especially for groups ( at our Tanugamanono branch (7 mins from town) we can cater up to 7 foot massages at a time and 7 full body massages at time - with sufficient notice. Bookings for beauty treatments are also highly recommended. We have a smaller branch in town situated in Tamaligi (opposite the National Bank and next door to Coffee Bean Cafe).

I thoroughly enjoyed the massage- great customer service, environment was relaxing & also the music was also soothing! I loved how they used Samoan made oil which was great and brought that touch of Samoa. Faafetai lava :)

It was interesting experiencing a Samoan massage, a bit different from New Zealand! The setting was immaculate though and very peaceful and relaxing. We went away feeling refreshed and our sore backs had eased. Would recommend medium pressure as firm was very firm.

My fiancé and I each had a one hour full body massage on a Sunday afternoon. It was excellent. Well priced at 65 tala per massage. And with not a lot on offer on a Sunday in Samoa this was a great option.
