We are Lou & Gavin Brightwell, New Zealanders with a love of travel, food, friends and family.  It has always been our dream to own a resort and we can’t tell you how excited we are to finally be realising this dream. 

It’s been quite a journey and along the way we have visited some amazing places and met many wonderful people that we now call friends.  This could not be truer when we speak of our time in Samoa.  As soon as we visited Samoa for the first time we knew it was a special place – the perfect place to make our dream a reality.

During one of our trips to Samoa we came across an old coconut plantation sitting on a pristine, white sandy beach and surrounded by lush greenery and exotic flowers.  The perfect location of Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa.

The people of our neighbouring village Matatufu, have been warm and welcoming and it has been an absolute pleasure getting to know them.  We believe being active in the community is the best way to truly experience a country and we are happy to promote and support their endeavours whenever possible.

Saletoga Sands Resort & Spa is a culmination of the best of our travels; with input from friends, family and our personal tastes and ideas, it really has been a team effort.

So don’t be shy …. come say hello and introduce yourselves.  You are always most welcome!

Gav & Lou
