The Sofitel Moorea is beautifully located on the Tahiiti-facing sunrise side of Moorea. Furthermore, the waters that are under the bungalows and out to the lagoon edge teem with fish, clams, crabs and the most wonderful corals. It really was a special treat to enter the water every morning from our bungalow and enjoy the fish and coral at close... More

A lovely resort next to a great beach. Nice Infinity swimming pool complex. Our check-in was a bit slow & the area in the upper reception area for us to wait was littered with dirty glasses & face cloths, although we weren't offered any. There was also two lots of red tapes across parts of the room which wasn't a... More

My husband and I wanted a relaxing beach vacation and this place more then met our expectations! First of all, Moorea is not Hawaii. It's much less developed and much less crowded and arguably more beautiful. We picked this location because we read that it was on one of the best beaches on the island and that you could snorkel...

We spent two weeks in Polynesia, and we visited four islands during our stay. The last one was Moorea and we stayed at the Sofitel. It has been an amazing experience. We had the very last room over water, with a unique view. The room was breath taking. Very large, with a nice bathroom. We had a patio from which... More

The beauty of the scenery from Sofitel Ia Ora was magnificent. The staff made us feel like family and went above and beyond their normal duties to make sure our stay was exceptional.

We love Sofitels and have stayed in them around the world. This one was arguably the most beautiful one we've stayed in. We stayed in a horizon luxury overwater bungalow and it was well worth the splurge! The bungalow is at the end so your view is unobstructed by other bungalows and you get a great view of Tahiti.

Had an incredible honeymoon here in April/May. Weather was shocking, but our overwater bungalow was beautiful and really made the trip, it's definitely worth the extra $$. The beach was probably the nicest on the island, and the sunrise & view of Tahiti is amazing. Restaurant was very nice, and the romantic dinner package was lovely even though the weather... More

On arrival at 11am we had to wait until 2pm before we were directed to our room, a discomfort. The room was great, although the southerly wind blowing directly into the room for a day was not comfortable. Service in the bars and restaurants was superb, waitresses very friendly. We would have used the 'K' restaurant more often if our... More
