Protected by lush mountain scenery, the idyllic beachfront location of Sofitel Moorea la Ora provides the perfect island escape from the outside world. It sits on the east coast of Moorea, looking out towards Papeete , the vibrant capital of nearby Tahiti island. As well as being close to Moorea Temae Airport, it’s easily accessible if travelling by boat/catamaran from Tahiti, site of Faa’a International Airport.
Seven lovely spa suites with panoramic views await you at the hotel spa. Here you can enjoy the Jacuzzi and solarium and arrange a personalised treatment, including hot stone massage, body wraps and traditional Polynesian therapies.
The hotel can organise a game at the Jack Nicklaus-designed Moorea Green Pearl Golf Course, in stunning surroundings.
You have a choice of rooms and suites, according to your requirements – with super-stylish décor that seamlessly merges traditional and modern to great effect. These include two-bedroom luxury villas, luxury garden bungalows and superior or luxury overwater bungalows. All home comforts are provided – with features such as air conditioning, free mineral water, satellite TV, wifi, minibar and ice machine, work desk and tea/coffee facilities.
A dip in the lovely pool, gazing out over the open blue sea, is not to be missed. But you can also have a go at snorkelling, kayaking, sea fishing, pedal boating, scuba diving or deep-sea diving. There’s also plenty to do on dry land, with horse-riding, quad biking, petanque and cycling all available. The hotel can also organise a tour of the island.
Gourmet dining on the beach, looking out over Tahiti, is on offer at K (shoes optional). You may even enjoy some authentic Polynesian dancing. Or there’s an international buffet at contemporary Pure Restaurant. You can also sip a range of drinks, including island cocktails, at Vue open-air bar.
