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.

Perfect place to start your Tahiti vacation here in the Hotel. We arrived late in Tahiti. After a 10 min ride from the airport you are there. Very nice Hotel. Great staff. Clean nice modern rooms. We had a kitchen so we got groceries and cooked and enjoyed our huge balcony and the beautiful sunsets. Very nice pool and waterfront deck area. We will be back..

This resort was part of our 3 island package. We loved it all, except the wait staff in the breakfast/dinner restaurant was not too friendly. We knew we had a garden room, but when we got to #201 we were pleasantly surprised that our bungalow had an enclosed backyard with a small private pool. WOW! We could stay here forever. Everything about the bungalow was perfect. The pool for all is quite large with a gorgeous view. The grounds are beautiful. The front desk very helpful. For the buffet, since this is COVID time, we picked up individual silver tongs and a large spoon to use to get our food. No touching by hands for anything. This was a great idea and I wish all places would implement it. We were able to walk to a supermarket for water & snacks and found a terrific restaurant right across the street. We ate breakfast & lunch at the hotel daily and had dinner there the night of the Tahitian show. We were only here 3 nights and loved it. I would definitely come back again.

The Manava is a nice place. Our room was great but it showed some wear; I believe what you would expect from a tropical place - mildew in the bathroom and water damage to floor from people not wiping off water. The view was spectacular and our swim spot was great form our bungalow. We could snorkel right off our deck. The staff was hit or miss some were exceptional and others were just doing their job. Benjamin, the pool boy, was exceptional - very attentive and helpful. Only one of them remember our name and we were there for days and saw many of them over and over. The concierge was helpful and scheduled us a whale watching tour. It was a pleasant stay.

Was booked to stay at this bungalow for my friend's birthday in August of this year (2020). Our booking was from 9/28-9/30. Unfortunately, I missed the flight from SFO due to the mandatory CVD testing and was unable to stay at the bungalow either evening. That said, I came early on 9/30 hours before check out so I could at least see what I had paid for. I was very UNDERwhelmed by the accommodations. $700 PER NITE for ONE queen sized bed! No exotic Tahitian flowers perfuming the air, no luxurious robe, no fluffy slippers, no chocolates, no ultra silky bed linen or luxurious bath towels; no floral crown, no champagne, no fruit tray, no special coffee or Tahitian product. Not even the BATH PRODUCTS were anything you couldn't find in a Motel 6! NO SPECIAL amenities even though I had notified them a day in advance that it was my friend's birthday!! We have traveled to other parts of the world during her birthday and each facility has made it a unique and memorable experience until Manava! Had I not ordered fresh fruit to be delivered, there would have been no indication of anything special for her. As for the glass bottom floor, turns out it is the size of a coffee table. Yes, you can see a few fish but does that constitute a glass bottom FLOOR?! Comparable properties in Panama, Jamaica or Mexico were every bit as competitive and even more stunning for a fraction of the rate. PLUS, when notified of special events, the rooms were filled with balloons, banners, little gifts, etc.

Dear Miguelle, We would like to thank you for providing us with a feedback for a stay that you unfortunately were unable to make with us. We are disappointed to read that the hotel did not meet your expectations in regards to the complimentary amenities expected for your friend birthday. You are absolutely correct, to comment that our Resort is not Ritzy, as we never wanted it to be that way. Our Resort strength lies in the authentic Polynesian experience we are aiming to provide to all our guests as we believe that this will be memories that we last for ever. We are sorry that you did not chose from one of our Romantic Welcome Package which could have been a real fire work of flowers and colours and perfect way to surprise someone very dear to you. Thank you again for your comments and we hope that you will have the opportunity to visit us again in the future. Mauruuru and with best regards,

As in previous reviews we agonized over booking with this hotel or the Sofitel, we decided on this hotel because the Sofitel’s equally priced room was a garden view, whereas at this hotel we had a room on the beach, we were quiet happy with our choice. Similar to our experience in Bora Bora the food is not the best, its mostly overpriced and sub par, we didnt hate the food, but dont get your hopes up, you wont be impressed. The snorkeling directly in front of the resort is not good, but borrow a kayak and paddle out to where the water changes color back to light blue and you’ll find plenty to see (dont tell the hotel staff as they will instruct you to stay near the resort as Im sure this is nice and conservative advice, but no fun either). I think the other resorts probably offer better access to snorkeling and swimming where you dont have to paddle out... but that was it, we also rented a scooter and circled the island, highly recommended! If you book here to get a better room for the same price as the larger competing resorts you’ll be glad you did.
