Our Resort Report

Our Thoughts on Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort, Moorea
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 Included in the Tariff
 Full American Breakfast at the main restaurant for
     2 guests per room
 Complimentary wifi 
 Mini Bar with 2 softs, 2 beers, still & sparkling water
     replenished daily.

Your Accommodation Options
There are two different grades at Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort; “Superior” and “Luxury”.  The main differences between the two is the size of the bungalow and their position; both are open-plan but the bungalows designated “Luxury” are more spacious with a bigger bathroom and a more-defined lounge area.  The land-based "Luxury" bungalows feature a private outdoor patio off the bathroom.

The Garden, Lagoon View and Beach Bungalows spread out along the beach and in the tropical gardens on both sides of the resort’s central buildings which house the reception, the restaurants and bars. The Overwater Bungalows are located along a branching pontoon pier which is located more-or-less out front of the resort.  One branch accesses the Superior Overwater Bungalows and the other services predominantly Luxury Overwater Bungalows.

The 5 bungalows at each end of the 2 piers, which have exceptional views out over the lagoon towards Tahiti unencumbered by other bungalows, are designated "Horizon" Bungalows. Horizon Bungalows are available in both “Superior” and “Luxury” categories –
guests staying in Horizon Bungalows enjoy:
 ● In-room private check-in
 ● 1 bottle of Champagne upon arrival
 ● Mini bar refilled daily (mineral water & sodas)
