#1 of 4 hotels in Maharepa
Travelers' Choice
The Manava Beach Resort & Spa Moorea nestles on the island shore, just by the village of Maharepa is an ideal location, between the majestic Cook’s Bay and the Moorea Green Pearl Golf Club. It’s very convenient location just 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the ferry terminal, makes it an ideal base to explore the island. Close from the Resort, the Maharepa village offers a selection of boutiques, banks and convenients stores. The style of the resort is a tasteful combination of the traditional and the contemporary with a powerful sense of Polynesia. There are 28 over-water bungalows built over the lagoon on piles, 8 more bungalows on the beach and 28 spread through the beautiful grounds with their own private pludge pools and little gardens. The remaining 18 rooms and 8 duplexes of this 90-unit resort all facing the garden are in a small building. Whichever accommodation you choose, you will have air-conditioned comfort (the bungalows also have ceiling fans), an outside terrace, mini-bar, hairdryer, safe, flat-screen television and WiFi. From your hotel base we will be happy to arrange a full range of exciting excursions and activities and of course you can relax at the resort where you’ll enjoy one of the largest infinity pools of the island. Each bungalow has a sunny outside terrace with comfortable loungers. From the over-water ones, there is direct access to the lagoon. The premium over-water bungalows are especially well situated, close to the coral reef ledge so you can immediately swim off and discover a fascinating world of coloured fish and exotic corals. Near the over-water bungalows, we have developed our own coral nursery- To’A Nui - a coral regeneration project and part of our commitment to protecting the fragile environment that surrounds us. This site encourages the proliferation of marine life whose beauty is so easily enjoyed with simple snorkelling equipment. You will find a luxurious and convivial resort on a human scale, offering a warm welcome to honeymooners, romantic couples, families, nature lovers and scuba-divers. We have two restaurants - The Mahanai for breakfast and dinner and the Autera’a snack and bar with a teracce adjacent to the pool for sipping your favorite beverage. Other facilities include two meeting rooms, a boutique and a full range of activities and excursions both on land and on the water. We also have an on-site dive center and a spa. The Manea Spa specializes in massages and treatments using traditional Polynesian methods and 100% natural products from the island’s flowers and plants, including the famous monoi oils from the coconut palm. The spa has a hammam, jacuzzi and the "Rumi Avai" where you can discover the pleasures of our unique aquatic massages.

We were there for a week on an over the water premium bungalow, while it rained half the time, it was still a very enjoyable stay. The facility is slightly dated but well maintained and kept very clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The package we had included breakfast and one 50-minute couple massage. Breakfast was buffet style with a wide variety of food. I especially enjoyed the fresh tropical fruits. The other restaurant food was good albeit somewhat limited in choice. A few things about the bungalows: 1. Our shower drain was rather temperamental. Some days it drained very well, others a bit slow. 2. The windows on either side of the bathroom sink only have shutters and no glass and cannot be completely shut. Sometimes you can hear noises from the bar/pool/restaurants and one day it was extremely windy and debris (tiny twigs, dead leaves, etc.) got blown in. 3. While sometimes children swam near the deck (and can be noisy), we liked the over-the-water bungalow because I could get into the water quickly from the deck and it was fun watching all the fish and sea animals swimming by. We saw a sea turtle, trumpet fish and black-tip reef sharks. There is also a glass-bottom coffee table where you can see corals and all sorts of fish underneath.

We stayed a week at Manava and we could not have been happier with everything we experienced there. We stayed in a Garden Pool Bungalow and it was absolutely perfect. Having a private pool was truly fantastic. Sure, the bungalows are nice but you have very little privacy with kids snorkeling around your bungalow in the morning. My opinion is save the money and enjoy everything Manava has to offer. They have two great beaches and a superb pool with plenty of lounges always available. The food was excellent and the breakfast buffet is perfect to start the day. If you’re staying a while don’t expect much variety but it’s still excellent. The staff at Manava was always attentive and helpful. Some don’t speak great English but they will always try to accommodate you. Marquise at the front desk was so welcoming and friendly and helpful. The activities desk is very helpful arranging tours. Although we had already arranged tours they still helped with any questions we had. Maybe the best feature of Manava was its vicinity to Maharepa, the town nearby. It’s an easy walk and there are 3 different dining options there as well as a nice supermarket. There’s also 2 dining options nearby, one next door. A food truck that has no business being as good as it is. And very reasonably priced. Manua Grill is farther street and always busy for dinner. We had spoken to people staying at both the Sofitel and Hilton and they were quite envious that we had so many dining options outside the hotel. Those hotels have virtually nothing close by for outside dining options. The menus at Manava are good. It’s pretty limited in the main restaurant but the offerings are very good. The casual restaurant has burgers, pizzas and good kids choices. My wife has a gluten allergy and they tried very hard to accommodate her. There aren’t a lot of choices if you’re gluten free on the island. There’s a ton of bread with everything but everything is local and well made and rarely processed. Even the food truck takes great care in the presentation. Very typically French…. Which is a good thing. I can’t say enough about how wonderful our time was at Manava. Rooms are great, beds are comfortable, water pressure in shower is excellent and staff is always available to take care of your needs. I couldn’t recommend this place more if you’re spending time in Moorea.

The resort itself is beautiful, however I feel as though I caught it at a difficult time. Most of the resort is under construction getting a much needed face lift. The staircase outside my door was sanded and painted over during my time and it made it quite difficult to enter and exit my room, and the noise was overwhelming at times. The staff was so lovely and accommodating however the service was slow and left something to be desired. I had my meals forgotten about multiple times and often waited over an hour for a sandwich. My luggage was also lost during a room change, but once it was tracked down the staff was very apologetic and at the end of the day no harm done! The location is gorgeous and close to town so it's very easy to walk around and the locals and staff are so forthcoming with suggestions of places to eat or things to see and more than happy to arrange transportation.

We would highly recommend this property. It had the best laid back, relaxing vibe and the service was wonderful. By the time we departed, this resort felt like home. Adele was so welcoming upon arrival. Benji was there at the pool with a welcoming smile every day. And Moana who helped us with our luggage and tips for around town was a delight. Would also want to give a special shout out to the ladies at the spa for wonderful massages! The location of this property was perfect — a combination of awesome beach and pool views along with nearby shops and restaurants. Definitely eat at Rudy’s and Mo’orea Beach Club. We stayed in a beach bungalow and it was perfect. Super cold AC, lightning fast WiFi, plenty of space, and the beds were so comfortable. We also loved the snacks and cocktails at the more casual restaurant, and the breakfast buffet did not disappoint. Also, if you’re looking for a superb tour, look no further than Yvette and Mo’orea VIP tours. AMAZING! With regards to the resort, the only thing that would’ve made it better was more vegetarian options for dinner at the nicer, more upscale restaurant. Overall, a wonderful stay! Highly recommend. We will definitely be back. And we miss the staff so much already!

Manava was the absolute best hotel of our two week honeymoon in French Polynesia. The staff is so friendly and they work very hard to keep the hotel in great shape. Everything was clean and our overwater bungalow was amazing. We had sunset views and were close to everything we needed at the hotel. We saw turtles, sharks, and a huge assortment of fish from our bungalow. Theresa at the concierge desk was our favorite person we met on the trip. She was so friendly and so helpful. Her recommendations were spot on and we did some things we wouldn't have without talking to her. This hotel somehow combines luxury and comfort in the best way. We felt very at home here, but also very special and taken care of. We are trying to figure out how we come back and visit very soon!
