Samoa’s hidden treasure, the big island of Savai’, took a turn yesterday to welcome the contestants of 2016 Miss Pacific Islands to its shores.

Savai’i rolled out the red carpet giving the contestants a rapturous reception as the ladies enjoyed the tranquility of the Savaii ahead of their big day on Friday.

The contestants, their entourages and pageant officials boarded the Lady Naomi for an experience of Samoa Shipping Corporation hospitality.

Once they were in Savai’i, they headed straight to Don Bosco Technical Training Centre where Father Mosese and his students welcomed them in traditional style. Each contestant was escorted to loud applause beginning a memorable day.

The next stop was the beautiful Amoa Resort where they took a little breather before heading to Safune where the Savai’i Samoa Tourism Association put on an ava ceremony.
