Certificate of Excellence
The Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa nestles on the island shore, just by the village of Maharepa in an ideal location, between the majestic Cook’s Bay and the Gulf of Moorea. It’s very convenient, at just 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the ferry terminal, and with boutiques, restaurants and a small shopping center close at hand. 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 pools and little gardens. The remaining 22 rooms and 8 duplexes of this 94-unit resort 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 DVD player, I-pod dock 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 colored 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 snorkeling 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 - and the acclaimed gourmet restaurant - The Matiehani. The Autera’a is a perfect terrace bar for sipping your favorite beverage. Other facilities include a bar, two meeting rooms, a boutique and a full range of activities and excursions both on land and on the water. We also have a dive center, a Polynesian tattoo facility 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. Thespa has a hammam, Jacuzzi and the "Rumi Avai" where you can discover the pleasures of our unique aquatic massages.

We stayed at the Manava Beach Resort & Spa for 4-nights in late-May (C$857/night, including breakfast). The Manava was one of about 4 luxury resorts with over-water bungalows on Moorea Island. It had a variety of accommodation options – garden rooms near the lobby, beachfront

We had a beach bungalow, which was just a few steps from the water. The lagoon is shallow, which makes it very easy for non swimmers, such as myself, to snorkel. The facilities are very well done, everything was very clean and well maintained. Did notice some water damage stains

The bungalows are so charming from the water and are a joy to experience, but they are in need of maintenance. The wooden counters and wood around the bathtub need work. The tubs and sinks need an update too. That being said, living over the water is delightful. There are

Thanks a lot for staying with us and to share your experience on a constructive manner. Wind Spirit a majestic deluxe sailboat. True that after a cruise all inclusive with hundrend of foreigner staff the experience is certainly different than in a Polynesian hotel. But your comments will help us to work on details in order to get better. We still hope that you will keep great memories of our beautiful island of Moorea . Sunny regards to you

We stopped at this hotel about 8 years ago on our honeymoon and decided to return to it again for my wife’s 40th birthday present. It has changed hands since we last went as it was called the Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa. Thankfully not much had changed. Still and wonderful
