We hadn't intended to stay at this boutique hotel, but due to our original accommodation (booked through booking.com), turning out to be a fraud, we made the phonecall to Eileen at Fenua. She graciously agreed to take my husband and our two children aged 4&5 years old. Don't panic honeymooners, children are not usually at this hotel! Eileen made special... More

This is the best place I have ever been. Eileen is a true genius. The whole place, down to every detail, is rich and sumptuous. The service is outstanding. You feel like you are in a show about lifestyles of the rich and famous. As another reviewer said, I will dream of returning there. The rooms are gorgeous. The small... More

I feel very remiss that I have not sent this review earlier especially as Eileen is the most perfect hostess and Fenua Mata 'I" Oa is the most perfect place you could ever imagine in the wonderful paradise that is Moorea,arguably the most beautiful of the Tahitian islands. We actually stayed here in May 2014. Our taxi organised by Eileen... More

Hostess Eileen has established an unique boutique hotel on lagoon's edge surrounded by wonderful tropical vegetation, bures very private and wonderfully decorated in Polynesian style. Entirely different to the modern style sterile sameness units!. Then the lounge and dining areas are so very very different. Individually decorated sitting rooms and for dining wonderful little tete a tete alcoves on lagoon's... More

Mauruuru Eileen & Serge for another blissful stay in paradise! The magic of Fenua never ceases to take our breath away. This time we truly relaxed even though again we wished we could have stayed longer. We loved the day out on our private motu - the snorkelling, and lunch were divine. We had the stingrays and sharks to ourselves... More

This is a five-star place that yes, will cost you accordingly. But it is just perfect in its execution.....perfect, perfect, perfect. The rooms are all beautiful (I asked to see them and toured each one of the 5----they are all gorgeous and you will be happy in any of them). All are made of local materials. What I truly loved...

We have enjoyed Polynesian beauty and hospitality in many forms over the years but never quite as much as this. After an adventurous week at a minimalist motu in Tikehau, checking into the lush Fenua Mataiao was a sensory experience. "Luxe, calme, et volupte" is what comes to mind. The rooms are bug free and visually alluring (i'd even say... More
