Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort

Destination: Moorea, French Polynesia

Stretching along a pristine lagoon, the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort is a local Moorean gem. It boasts one of the best and longest white sand beaches in all of Tahiti, Temae Beach, and offers a variety of accommodations for every traveler. Guests will enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the lagoon and the only luxury beach bungalows with unobstructed views of the island of Tahiti. 

The standalone accommodations range from luxury garden bungalows to the classic Tahitian overwater bungalows. The room’s interiors are inspired by the colorful artwork of Paul Gauguin, with the overwater bungalows featuring glass paneled floors to frame the sea life below. Here, you can enjoy four state-of-the-art restaurants for any dining needs. The talented therapists at Le Jardin Spa & Beauty use natural ingredients to transport you into a state of total relaxation. For a more adventurous on-site excursion, the dive center and activities desk have water sports equipment to use at your leisure.
