The craggy, volcanic peaks of Moorea is rife with legends of a lost paradise, its forests and white beaches inspiring James Michener’s tales of Bali Hai. Nestled in this island is the Manava Beach Resort and Spa, a luxury resort next to the small village of Maharepa and the vast Cook’s Bay.
From Tahiti, travellers have to take a 10-minute flight to Moorea, from where a ten-minute cab ride will see them at the entrance of the resort. Despite Moorea’s remoteness from the rest of the world, the resort offers its guests modern and spacious bungalows, tonnes of activities, fine dining and oodles of privacy and peace. Its 90 rooms and bungalows are spread over several acres of lush tropical gardens, beachfront and over the water. Guests also have a library of options to choose their accommodation from – from cosy Garden View Rooms to sprawling Beach Bungalows and Overwater Bungalows, there is a perfect fit for every traveller. Each of the options come with king-size beds, tastefully-decorated rooms with wooden inlays and high-vaulted roofs, attached bathrooms with premium toiletries and large balconies/patios (check out more details of the rooms in the ‘Accommodation Options’).
When it comes to activities, travellers will realise that Moorea, and the Manava Beach Resort and Spa, are in a league of their own. From snorkelling and diving in the scintillating waters of the island to quad-bike rides into the forests, there is so much to do, experience and learn. Moorea has top-notch dive sites and we can arrange scuba-diving charters for enthusiasts; for learners, the resort has an excellent Dive Centre. From July through to November, Moorea is visited by pods of humpback whales and an opportunity to watch these gentle giants frolic is not to be missed. The island is also home to pods of dolphins, which gambol around the charter boats and divers aplenty! Guests can use the resort’s canoes and snorkelling gear to explore the coral reefs, where they will find schools of tropical fish flitting about.
If you’re an action junky, let us recommend parasailing, jet ski safaris and water-skiing around the resort’s crystal-clear waters – minus the crowds, each of the activities let you feel like you own the world! For those looking for lazy island afternoons, the resort’s 7,500 sq foot infinity pool serves as the perfect spot to park yourself.
The Manava Beach Resort and Spa also excels when it comes to wining and dining. The main restaurant Mahana’i takes advantage of its in-house chef to serve traditional Polynesian fare along with French fusion cuisine, while the two bars Autera’a and Matiehani woo guests with stunning views of the bay and the pool.
The resort is one of the few examples in French Polynesia where luxury and untarnished natural beauty come together in a seamless fusion.
