The Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa nestles on the island shore, just by the village of Maharepa in an ideal location, between the majestic Cook’s Bay and the Gulf of Moorea. It’s very convenient, at just 10 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from the ferry terminal, and with boutiques, restaurants and a small shopping center close at hand. 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 pools and little gardens. The remaining 22 rooms and 8 duplexes of this 94-unit resort 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 DVD player, I-pod dock 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 colored 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 snorkeling 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 - and the acclaimed gourmet restaurant - The Matiehani. The Autera’a is a perfect terrace bar for sipping your favorite beverage. Other facilities include a bar, two meeting rooms, a boutique and a full range of activities and excursions both on land and on the water. We also have a dive center, a Polynesian tattoo facility 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. Thespa has a hammam, Jacuzzi and the "Rumi Avai" where you can discover the pleasures of our unique aquatic massages.

While on Moorea we visited all of the higher-end hotel properties and felt that Manava Beach was the best value. When you arrive it's easy to be underwhelmed by the hotel. The driveway area looks like a 1 or 2 star motel, not a resort and I can’t figure out why they wouldn’t

As a matter of principle I prefer not to write negative reviews. When I do, it’s because things are truly deplorable and I feel I need to warn other travelers. Moreover, I do not like to write reviews while still on the road. But I will make an exception for this place. This is

A screwing up could happen anywhere but the fact that no one present some excuses is not acceptable for the GM that I am. You mentioned it well the check in time is 2 pm ( most of the hotel in the world is 3 to 4 Pm) but unfortunately when people arrive with early flight or early ferry boat they have to wait a while. And the waiting time always appear too long. Why they forgot to give you card for beach towels? I do not have the answer. We have couple trainees from French hotel school who just started couple weeks ago , one of them might forgot it. I will make a staff meeting to make everyone understand on how important the communication is. Sorry that you did not appreciate the welcome amenities put in your room around 3.30PM. We usually put the amenities around that time because it is the time where people come back from tours and excursion. But I take good note of your remark stating that it would be better at the arrival time in the room. Hotel is very very busy at the moment but this should not interfere with the quality of your stay. You had some positive side in your comments and I thanks you for them . We will work on the others. The staff joins me to wish you a wonderful happy new year .

We stayed here for a few days leading up to Xmas. Room was clean and functional and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The restaurant looked after my partner's dietary requirements and made sure she had something for each meal, so a big thank you to David, the F&B

Yes. Manava moorea is within 5-7 minutes ( shorter if only adults are walking, we had kids with us) of the Maharepa shopping center. Carmaline has excellent coffee, breakfast, ice cream and lunch options. Carmaline has the best WiFi also. :) There is a bank, grocery store and pearl store also.

Hi there, We borrowed snorkelling equipment at the beginning of our stay and kept through to the end, this was the norm and saves you struggling to find the rifght size flippers again and again! I didn’t see any board games at all, we had a pack of cards with us though so we didn’t really look. Have a great holiday

Hi, wireless internet only worked for me at reception. We had several French-type plugs in the room (we were in the larger building near reception) and used an adapter but NZ machines so charged phones and laptops easily.
