Our Thoughts on Legends Resort Moorea
A good option for those considering a high standard Moorea Resort with self-catering facilities.  Legends Resort Moorea offers private self-contained villas which have separate bedrooms, lounge, kitchen/dining. The extensive private decks come complete with sun loungers, private spa pool and a gazebo which houses a shaded table and chairs

Located 25kms from Moorea Airport and 28kms from the Tahiti Ferry Terminal, Legends Resort delivers something entirely different in Moorea holiday accommodation. Because it is built on a hillside, every one of the 47 villas has a spectacular view; either of a luxuriant tropical mountain valley or one out over the InterContinental Moorea Resort below to the motus in the lagoon and the reef and the Pacific Ocean beyond. At Legends you don’t have the lagoon waters lapping at your door, but this is made up for by the wonderful views and the option of complimentary use of the resort’s private beach which is reached by regular resort boat transfers provided at no extra charge.

The horizon swimming pool is very special. The pool is an integral part of the resort’s central facility which also houses the intimate dining areas and Reception and its hillside location means swimmers really feel the sensation of being suspended above the lagoon and ocean below.

As the resort is located on a hill, it can be a little challenging for less mobile guests to move around the resort or to walk from some parts of the resort to the main gate to visit the convenience store located close by.  Legends provide a motorised golf-style cart shuttle that is available any time it is required.  It works really well and the staff are always happy to provide the service.

However, irrespective of the many excellent resort facilities and services, which include a spa and massage as well as a 24 hour exercise room with fitness equipment and the great staff, the star attraction must be the spacious villa accommodation. 

Legends Resort is closed for annual maintenance between 13 January and 09 February 2014

Your Room Options
There are three grades of accommodation at Legends Moorea – Villa Iti, Villa Nui and Rapa Nui Suite.  Within each category of villa, there is a choice of outlook and location on the hill. Guests staying in Tropical View Villas enjoy a view over a luxuriant tropical valley, Ocean View Villas have a partial valley view and partial ocean view and guests in Premium Ocean View Villas enjoy an unobstructed view over the lagoon to the ocean beyond. The wonderful Rapa Nui Suite has a premium ocean view.

Each villa has a full-sized kitchen which is fully stocked with pots and pans, crockery and cutlery etc.  There are two air-conditioned bedrooms, separate living area, laundry facilities and a beautiful bathroom.  On the deck you will find 2 sun loungers and a shady gazebo containing a table and chairs. A private Jacuzzi pool is set into the deck. The living area is not air-conditioned but has wide opening doors which allows the cooling sea and mountain breezes to flow through.  Even when these doors are closed there is a unique Polynesian House-style opening between the top of the walls and the roof that still allows the cooling air to circulate.
