サモアの地震・津波 - サモアナリゾート

World Surfaris Japanで取扱をしているウエスタンサモアのサモアナリゾートは、奇跡的にサモアの地震と津波の被害を受ける事はありませんでした。

しかしながら、ニュースを通じて被害状況を見るにつけ心が痛みます。
現地では、壊滅した村もあり大きな被害がありました。
お悔やみを申し上げるとともに、現地の方々の復興を望んでやみません。

募金等をご検討されている方は一例として赤十字社をご参考にされてください。

 Official Statement & Update #1 from Clearwater Sports Resort


Miraculously Sa’Moana Resort has been spared any serious damage from the recent earthquake and the following Tsunami.  All our guests were quickly and safely evacuated to high ground and after the all clear were returned to the resort to resume their holidays.

Faleolo International Airport is fully operational as is the business centre and Capital Apia.

Superficial damage was quickly repaired and most of that was wave damage to the resort grounds. The swimming pool is expected to be running within the next 24 hrs. Though one of the resort boats has been damaged Surf-2 our 34ft. twin hulled people mover is available but at this stage we’ll need to temporarily reduce surfer guest numbers to 10 to ensure space and comfort onboard.

All other aspects of the resort are operating as normal and guest’s spirits are both positive and high.

Our heartfelt thoughts and sympathy go out to all who are suffering from the tragic loss of loved ones, friends and their possessions some of those are our industry friends here on island. The Owners, Management and staff of Sa’Moana Resort have offered their help and assistance where they can, whatever  we can help with we’ll give.
It is amazing, and very grounding, to realize that our business has been spared, but spared we have been. To able to continue carry on business in times like these, and to continue our support of this beautiful country of Samoa, is very humbling.

Official Statement & Update #2 from Sa’Moana Resort for Guests Currently Booked for Holidays at Sa’Moana Resort

We have been extremely lucky in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami and only suffered minor landscaping damage.  We would like to reassure all those guests that have booked for holidays at the resort for both now, and in the immediate future, that the resort is fully operational. Electricity is restored and the pool will be pumping tomorrow.

For those of you with immediate travel arrangements for stays at Sa’Moana Resort we can assure you that you will still be able to have a great holiday. Whilst part of the south coast and the south eastern end of Upolu Island has been devastated & suffered badly (maybe a quarter of the coast line) the rest of the island foreshores are still pristine and beautiful.

Our Tours and Activities program may be slightly modified, but feel we are able to provide our guests with an enjoyable holiday experience. 

If however you decide to delay your holiday (which is really not at all necessary) we will allow you to do so, without any penalties, however your holiday must be concluded prior to 1st July 2010.   Unfortunately any total cancellation of a holiday will still be governed by our standard cancellation policy.

Please be reassured that all is still beautiful in most areas of Samoa. The worst possible thing that could happen to Samoa now, its people and businesses, would be for tourists and visitors to stop coming. Every dollar (or Tala) spent in Samoa will benefit the restoration of Samoa’s devastated areas and the support of its people.
