A brilliant giveaway for Start at 60 readers: Win a luxury island holiday in Samoa!

The Samoan people are said to be among the happiest on Earth, and it doesn’t take long to discover why.

Within minutes of landing in this beautiful country, it’s clear you’re somewhere truly special. Walking the untouched forests and beaches is like stepping back in time. The culture is one of incredible respect and tradition, with values that date back to the Island’s settlement 3,000 years ago.

And unlike so many holiday destinations, this is not a place overrun with thousands of tourists. While more than a million will visit Fiji every year, only 42,000 guests per year experience the joy of a Samoan welcome.

Eager to know more? Soon you and a loved one could be discovering Samoa first-hand – along with plenty of luxury perks – thanks to this incredible giveaway.
