TAHITI IA ORA BEACH RESORT
managed by Sofitel.
(Formerly Le Meridien Tahiti)
Tamanu, Tahiti, French Polynesia

OUR thoughts on Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort managed by Sofitel
With only 149 rooms including 8 suites and 12 overwater bungalows, Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort managed by Sofitel (formerly known as Le Meridien Tahiti), which was extensively renovated throughout in 2010, is a lovely intimate-style of hotel.  Being located on the coast only 30 minutes from Papeete’s city centre and 15 minutes away from Faa’a International Airport it is a pleasant cross between a city hotel and a beach resort.  It is the ideal spot for a stay in transit for a few days between arrival/departure Tahiti and the outer islands.

We think Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort has a great atmosphere which is probably due to the way the hotel buildings cluster around the fantastic, big sand-floor swimming pool which is the centre-piece of the property.  The swimming pool is almost like a natural opening of the sea and the beach into the resort grounds, as the way it has been designed and its sand floor makes it flow seamlessly to and from the lagoon beach.

There’s always something happening around this area including outdoor massage etc.  Also incorporated into this area you will enjoy L’Atelier a unique and vibrant art scene where guests can participate in hands-on art workshops, creative exhibitions and art lectures.  Optional cooking lessons and wine appreciation courses are also features at Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort.

The Resort offers some very generous discounts for stays of 3 nights or longer as well as combo rates in conjunction with their partner resorts on most of the other islands. When combining a stay with one or more of the partner resorts on other islands, a full buffet breakfast for two is included in the nightly tariff at Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort.

We also like their generous optional meal plans and their family-friendly policies too. (See our “Families and Kids” Section below). 

Here’s what’s included in the tariff at Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort:
 Complimentary non-alcoholic cocktail at check-in
 Complimentary yoga lessons and aquagym course
     on week days (subject to schedule)
 Complimentary access to Workshop l’Atelier
 Complimentary wifi access in public areas.
 Complimentary use of resort sports facilities:
       -  Kayaks
       -  Table Tennis
       -  Sand-bottom Swimming Pool
       -  Snorkelling Equipment
