Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort in Moorea, French Polynesia
The breathtaking Islands of Tahiti are quintessential tropical paradises with crystal clear, turquoise waters, towering palms, and miles upon miles of white, powder-soft sand beaches. On the quiet Island of Moorea, settled on the edge of a magnificent lagoon with views over the island of Tahiti, is the sumptuous Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort. The resort, recently renovated, features 114 luxurious bungalows built over the water, on the beachfront or surrounded by landscaped gardens. Two excellent restaurants, a bar, a fabulous outdoor swimming pool and decadent day spa provide idyllic activities, while mother nature supplies the rest.
Tahiti's pristine waters offer some of the world's most spectacular snorkeling and scuba diving, where you may watch a shark feeding, spot a stingray, and explore a menagerie of marine life. Then head above the water for kite-surfing, deep-sea fishing, or wind surfing. Those seeking a quieter pace will find miles of deserted beaches, and the secluded pool, which makes the perfect place to enjoy an umbrella cocktail. Step into a world of natural elements at LeSpa, offering guests tranquil treatments and Jacuzzis with panoramic views. The restaurant K offers you a sampling of world-class cuisine in an intimate and romantic setting. At Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort, you will experience the simple pleasures of complete tranquility, in a breathtaking tropical environment.

Reviews for Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort
On first impressions everything looks idyllic. Flower garlands and a drink to welcome you. The rooms are large with a giant bed in the centre of the room big enough to hold four! The bathroom is also large with an en suite toilet and shower, no bath. There is a separate cloakroom and a day bed. The room has just about everything you need including, tv, iron and board, safe and best of all a free mini bar which is restocked daily. There are two main restaurants, Pure and the K. The K you can book once a week, it is very fancy. The Pure menu is the same daily which can become boring if you are here for more than 4 days. Watch out for supplements on certain dishes. However breakfast is an absolute delight with just about everything you could want. Unfortunately what letâ€™s this hotel down is the BEACH. It is a disgrace, full of weeds, rocks and rubble. To get to the perfectly clear blue water, you have to walk over about 10 feet of sharp stones. See photos attached. Would not return, unless surely in this day and age, they would have some way of cleaning up this beach. A shame this lets the hotel down.

We spent our honeymoon here in an over water bungalow and are now planning our return visit for our 1st Anniversary. The location is stunning, the people are all very helpful and polite. The bungalow suited us perfectly, cleaned every morning while we were at breakfast. We order room service nearly every day around lunch time and the speed and service was excellent. The restaurants provide an excellent choice of options, from full meals to light snacks in the bar. Even when the bar ran out of my favourite bourbon they were very apologetic and offered a small sample of other brands to find something suitable to my tastes. Bar staff were always happy and smiling. Only did it rain on one day during our stay, and it was fantastic viewing too, watching the rain clouds roll in, a downpour for maybe 10 minutes and then back to beautiful sunshine and warmth. The only down side to our honey moon was me, losing my wedding band while snorkelling in front our bungalow. The staff at the scuba centre very kindly helped me look of it for well over an hour, but to no avail, so a part of our honeymoon is still on the island of moorea! See every one in November 2018

I stayed 3 nights in a Garden View Bungalow No.430. The room is spacious and well decorated, but a little dated. The maintenance is done, but eyes on details need to be improved (curtains & sliding doors condition). The plus was the free refilling minibar and the ice machine close to the rooms. The beach in front of the hotel has clear calm water.

My wife and I are not typical of the visitors to the Sofitel Ia Ora. This is the third year in a row that we have stayed, and we go there uniquely to snorkel the reef in the magnificent lagoon that fronts the hotel. The setting, across from Tahiti Island, is spectacular. The staff are welcoming and, although no doubt under stress during the busy holiday season, get their work done with grace and efficiency. The less expensive deluxe garden bungalows that we stay in are comfortable and well maintained. However, within the Ia Ora lurks a dark secret - the internet is a complete disaster, and is entirely non-functional during busy periods (and for the most part during less busy periods too). During the three days this week that I stayed neither my wife nor I were able to complete a single email, and managed to pull up no more than three pages on our browser (with all taking at least 30 minutes to load!). It was a complete nightmare since my wife needed to complete a couple of simple online tasks for her job while away, and she was unable to do it. Things got so bad that the hotel staff phoned around and referred us to the a coffee shop in Maharepa with a good internet connection. That saved my wife from a meltdown, but it seems beyond reason that we would have to leave our top-notch 5-star resort to get a functional internet signal! In the end we cut our stay short and moved to the Hilton Moorea, which has internet reception on a par to what we would find in the US but which we don't like at all as much as the Ia Ora on every other measure. We desperately want to to go back but will be unable to do so until they upgrade the internet to an acceptable standard. Every time I went to the reception guests were complaining about the internet connection, all of whom were told that this is a problem with French Polynesian internet. With fiber optic cables now in Moorea, and the Hilton providing excellent internet service, this is no longer a credible excuse. It is time for the Ia Ora to invest in upgrading their internet system and bringing it into the modern age. I hope it happens soon because my wife and I want to return to this special place

Bad experience in our honeymoon. A woman called ULLA who is an employee in this hotel, sell us one of the most expensive tour to visit the island (35000XPF), but it wasnâ€™t a private luxury tour as she promised because she called her colleage â€śPapa Albert â€ś an old man and not very good driver, who made us waste our time in his old and seedy pickup. Furthermore we missed some of the main spots in the island. No receip was given to us. We made a complaint and we are still waiting an answer from the hotel management. We feel ripped off and very disappointed.
