The legendary South Pacific hotel is set to re-open under the Sheraton brand on August 1, 2016.

Following on from the re-opening of Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Resort last year, this is the second phase of the multi-million dollar renovation.

“Known for its first mover advantage, Sheraton is once again leading the way in making an extraordinary destination like Samoa more accessible,” said Sean Hunt, Regional Vice President, Pacific, Starwood Hotels and Resorts.

“The addition of Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel and Bungalows is a natural step following the successful opening of our first Sheraton resort on the island last year. We are honoured to be working alongside the Grey family, an established owner and esteemed family, and to be a part of the next chapter of this much-loved hotel.”

Founded by Aggie Grey in 1933, the original hotel was established as a high profile club and gathering place for American servicemen stationed in Samoa during WWII. Having completed a comprehensive top to bottom refresh, the property’s new design combines its colonial heritage and classic charm with contemporary updates and features to appeal to today’s modern traveller. All 175 guest rooms, bungalows and suites are spacious and styled to complement the idyllic South Pacific setting, with contrasting dark wood furnishings against neutral tones.

The hotel now has an upgraded swimming pool and lap pool, Sheraton fitness centre, Manaia Polynesian Spa, and 916 square metres of flexible meeting and conference space. Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel and Bungalows also offers diverse dining options, such as Aggie Grey’s by Peter Kuruvita, combining flavours from across the world with an array of fresh produce available in Samoa.

Forming part of Polynesia, Samoa is an island nation that is a five hour flight from the east coast of Australia. Renowned for its natural beauty, including jungles, waterfalls and lava fields, Samoa is an exotic paradise that offers rich cultural heritage as well. Located in the Samoan capital of Apia on Main Beach Road, just a 30-minute drive from Faleolo International Airport, Sheraton Samoa Aggie Grey’s Hotel and Bungalows overlooks the harbour.
