Looking for a spa on Moorea

My fiance and I are going to Moorea for our honeymoon, and I'm looking into going to a spa for a massage or something like that. I'm not a spa person (I've had a massage twice in my life), but it sounds like fun and after the wedding I'm sure a relaxing massage will be nice. Does anyone have suggestions of a spa that is not too expensive and/or really great? Links to any websites would be very helpful.

Thanks!

Pretty sure it's available at the Hilton, the Intercontinental, and the Pearl. Prices run around $70-90 for around 10-12 minutes.

Oops...sorry...that is the answer to parasailing not the spa. Not sure how the heck I put it in the wrong place. :-(

We didn't get to go there, but the Helene spa at the Intercontinental is supposed to be very nice. helenespa.com/sites/en/The_Authentic_Tahitia…

We had treatments at the Hilton spa (it was Sheraton then) and really enjoyed them. It's a very nice facility. However, be prepared for sticker shock. I live in the NYC area, so I am used to high spa prices. But wow, was I in for a surprise in Moorea.

Hi Laura, I'm going in 10 days & staying at the Sofitel Moorea. If you haven't left before I get back mid-May I'll post what I know when I return.

Kind regards,

Try the Moorea Pearl's Spa Manea Spa. I had a great spa treatment there with massage, wrap, followed by a jacuzzi treatment with tiare flowers. It was amazing and so relaxing. The staff was so kind and I left feeling really refreshed, especially after a long flight. Here's the link to their website:

I've also been to the Hilton Moorea's spa too, but I was not impressed. The staff seemed like they were on auto pilot.

If you do a spa treatment, I would reserve in advance, especially if you are interested in a specific time of day. The spas are relatively small and tend to fill up in advance.

For Moorea the Manea Spa is my Spa of choice

The Sofitel also offers a very Zen like Spa area with some of the massage rooms looking at the beach and Tahiti.

Helene Spa at the Intercontinental resort also offers some different styule and flavours for a Spa treatment

There is a tour of the island to be put together visiting each spa.... How zen would that be?
