SOFITEL MOOREA
IA ORA BEACH RESORT

Moorea, French Polynesia

Our Thoughts on Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort.
Location, location – Ia Ora beach and the Sofitel Moorea are only 1km from Moorea Airport, 3 kms from the ferry terminal for the ferries from Tahiti and only 2 kms from the golf club.  As you round the point leading into Ia Ora Beach you get a perfect view of this beautiful resort with its individual bungalows waiting to pamper you.

Families are welcome, but this is really a great resort for couples and honeymooners.  There is only 1 swimming pool, but that’s fine because the lagoon is clean and fresh and wonderful for swimming and snorkelling, in fact, for snorkelling you really don’t need a mask, the water is that clear.  There is a dive operator on site and Moorea has many world-class scuba dive locations.  There is an excellent spa and the Polynesian massages are so relaxing.

Although it’s handy to the ferry terminal and airport, the Sofitel Moorea is quite secluded and ideal for a relaxing, romantic break.  You probably won’t want to leave the resort while you are booked there, but if you do; a hire car for a day is good way to explore the rest of Moorea.  All the Sofitel Moorea’s restaurants are very good, but if you decide to try the local restaurants for a change, it’s probably wise to choose those that have complimentary pickup/drop-off arrangements.

For really special occasions Sofitel Ia Ora Beach offer 3 brilliant “Romantic Dinner” options and guests love every one.
Choose from a romantic dinner for 2 at any of these locations:
● At the edge of The Terrace perched over the edge
    of the lagoon;
 Over The lagoon at a table for two set up on the
    overwater pontoon;
 In the lagoon with your feet in the water.
Go on – surprise someone special!

We also suggest you make an effort to rise early at least on one morning to enjoy the sunrise over the island of Tahiti which is clearly visible from Sofitel Ia Ora Beach Resort.

Bullet Breakfast Included in Tariff
Complimentary Wifi Access Included in all Room Types
Full American Breakfast at the restaurant for 2 guests per room and complimentary wifi is included in our rates at Sofitel Ia Ora Beach Resort.
