Holidays in French Polynesia are all about relaxing, taking in jaw-dropping views and enjoying the very best hospitality. Enjoy all of this to the highest degree at Hotel Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort, a chic and upscale hotel that enjoys a prime location.
The resort enjoys access to a pristine stretch of white sand, an impossibly turquoise lagoon and fantastic tropical landscapes. The sandy beach here is outstanding, while the lagoon here is one of the best on the island and offers fantastic snorkelling opportunities. This is a top spot for photography buffs, with chic bungalows, beautiful surroundings and views to Tahiti.
Fit in some well-deserved ‘me time’ at Le Jardin Spa & Beauty; the treatment menu blends local ingredients and traditional essential oils. Elsewhere in the resort find two scenic bars, two gourmet restaurants serving up local delicacies, international favourites and the freshest ingredients.
If you can tear yourself away from your luxurious accommodation – bungalows are found either on the beach, in the tropical greenery, on the lagoon shore or overwater – there is a host of cultural and adventure activities and excursions waiting to be explored; those celebrating a special occasion might opt for a romantic dining experience, while more adventurous types can take to the water on a jet ski.
Hotel Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort’s 113 bungalows are scattered throughout verdant tropical gardens, on the beach, and around and on the waters of the crystal-clear lagoon. Amenities include complimentary spring water, air-conditioning, mini-bars and complimentary Wifi. A baby cot is available upon request. Select bungalows are wheelchair accessible.
Open for dinner on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, K Restaurant serves fine dining designed by Chef Marc Lintaf paired by sommelier-selected wines. Enjoy aunique toes-in-the-sand dining experience.
Look out from Pure’s terrace onto the sparkling lagoon and enjoy your choice from the menu of local and international cuisine. We highly recommend reserving a table on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday for the live Polynesian culinary experience.
This poolside bar boasts the French Polynesia’s largest selection of liquors and sumptuous night-time views.
Indulge in your signature tipple or a light snack as you while away the hours on the white sand here, overlooking the blue lagoon.
Activities and Entertainment
Activities include table tennis, volleyball and bike rentals. To make the most of your stay in this wonderful area, we highly recommend taking advantage of some of the cultural tours and excursions arranged by the hotel. Whether you choose to head out to learn about local life and cuisine, or take to the trails for an ATV or Jeep adventure, there’s plenty to explore. There are several local waterfalls that make for fantastic hiking destinations. Ask your Travel Specialist about arranging a glass-bottom boat tour for a unique experience.
