Our Resort Report

OUR Thoughts on Manava Beach Resort & Spa – Moorea, Maharepa, North Coast Moorea
Formerly known as Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa, Manava Beach Resort is located on a small “bump” on the coastline of Moorea. The resort has a nice little beach, a fantastic horizon swimming pool and right in front of the Premium Overwater Bungalows, deep water which leads to an opening in the fringing lagoon reef.  Sunrise and sunset are both well viewed from Manava Beach and many guests meet on the waterfront at sunset to enjoy the spectacle. 

This is an excellent location on Moorea’s north coast just along from Cook’s Bay and walking distance from the resort to the commercial village of Maharepa where there is a supermarket, restaurants, cafés and boutique shops which service the local population as well as visitors. You are spoilt for choice between Manava Beach Resort & Spa’s own restaurants and the outside restaurants, many of which offer a pick-up service and this alone makes a stay of a week or more at The Manava Beach Resort & Spa such a good option for a terrific Moorea holiday experience.

There isn’t  a lot we can add to the resort’s own excellent description below; however, what we can add is that in our opinion The Manava Beach Resort & Spa – Moorea offers an accommodation type to suit almost every traveller’s need and a range of facilities and services that really deliver a great holiday.  Have a look at the Facilities Guides in the right-hand panel and you’ll see what we mean. The Manava Beach Resort & Spa – Moorea is rated Euro 4 Star.

New at Manava Beach Resort & Spa – Moorea
Mateihani, a new trendy bar is a recent addition to Manava Beach Resort & Spa.  Serving wine, specialty cocktails and tapas with good music, Mateihani Lounge is tucked away in intimate surroundings at the resort and open Friday and Saturday evenings.  

What Manava Beach Resort & Spa Say About Themselves: 
"Manava Beach Resort & Spa – Moorea nestles on the island shore, just by the village of Maharepain an ideal location, between the majestic Cook’s Bay and the Golf 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 (room with Mezzanine ideal for families) 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 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 an 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, offering fabulous snorkelling, 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’aNui –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. 3 outlets points : "The Mahanai," our main restaurant ; our grill area with the "Terrace Matiehani” and its tables on the beach; the terrace bar "Autera'a" for snacks and fast food during the afternoon. 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 monoïoils from the coconut palm. The spa has a hammam, Jacuzzi and the solar heating pool "RumiÃvai" where you can discover the pleasures of our unique aquatic massages."

Your Accommodation Options
For a resort with a total of 94 accommodation units, Manava Beach Resort has utilised its 3-hectare beachfront location very well.  Unlike some mid-sized resorts with overwater bungalows which can be very spread out with quite a hike for guests between some of the bungalows and the central restaurants etc., at Manava Beach Resort, the layout of the resort results in all guests, whether they be staying in the land-based accommodation units or in the overwater bungalows, having reasonably close access to all facilities.

All accommodation is “Modern Polynesian” in style with natural timber plank flooring, light-painted walls and modern island-style furnishings.  Garden View Rooms and Garden View Duplex accommodation units are offered in 2 storeyed blocks closest to the road and these rooms have flat ceilings as you would expect in a hotel block of rooms – all other accommodation is the “Bungalow” style which are either “stand alone” or in the case of most of the Premium Garden Pool Bungalows, in duplex units (two to a block). Bungalows have high vaulted ceilings which adds to the feeling of airiness and space.

All accommodation is air-conditioned while Premium Garden Pool Bungalows, all Beach Bungalows and all Overwater Bungalows also feature a ceiling fan and flow-through ventilation.
