Hotel Kia Ora Resort and Spa

Destination: Rangiroa, French Polynesia, Tahiti

Rangiroa is one of the largest coral atolls in the world, with a lagoon so large that the entire island of Tahiti could fit inside! From above, the 240 islets, or motus, resemble a delicate pearl necklace strung together around the massive lagoon. The name Rangiroa means “endless skies,” and you’ll feel the wide expanse from the moment you arrive.

Kia Ora is nestled in the midst of a coconut plantation and, although just minutes from the tiny island airport, it feels as though you are in a hidden paradise. Whether you choose to snorkel or dive amongst the abundant marine life, venture out to a remote beach, or simply relax in a hammock, you’ll find that this is a haven of peace and relaxation. Life at Kia Ora moves at a slower pace, and time is told by the rise and fall of the sun.
