Nine contestants will compete in the Miss Samoa pageant this weekend with the theme, Celebration of Women.
The contestants include two young women representing the Samoan communities in Australia and New Zealand.
The competition was scheduled to be held in one of the gyms used during the recent South Pacific Games.
But a senior officer of the Samoa Tourism Authority organising the pageant says most gyms are full with beds and beddings while the aquatic center is too expensive.
The winner of the competition will represent the country in the Miss South Pacific pageant that Samoa will also host next month.
