Sofitel Moorea was an amazing experience. We thought the resort provided an intimate personalized experience. On all the days we were there, we had the same service staff who treated us like family. We appreciated how it was slightly isolated from town which gave it a private intimate experience. We stayed in an overwater bungalow and the snorkeling below our...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 6 March 2017

The Sofitel is one of those tropical paradise locations you see on TV or the movies. I stayed in an over-the-water bungalow and it was very cute and well maintained. Bare in mind that not all bungalows here are created equal, we had one of the most innard set buildings with about a 40 degree angle of view of the...

We stayed in one of the beach bungalows (#411...request it!) and loved it. Very roomy, right on the beach, well maintained, responsive room service staff. The K restaurant was fantastic, with amazing service and food. Breakfast choices wonderful with ver attentive staff. The beach was very nice, snorkeling on site was good, not fantastic, but a good introduction. We went...

Once again, the lovely staff at the Sofitel Moorea Ia Ora Beach Resort made us grateful for having chosen to return here for a quick 2 nights over the Easter weekend holiday. We flew all the way from Los Angeles on a red-eye flight and arrived in Moorea earlier than our afternoon check-in time. The front desk was gracious enough...

Celebrating a major Anniversary, we stayed at this lovely resort. We enjoyed an Overwater Bungalow for four days. Pure joy. Relaxing before heading on to NZ and Australia , it was nothing but perfect. The staff so welcoming and kind. The meals excellent. If you stay, do not miss the Canoe breakfast. It makes you feel like royalty. The crown...

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel Moorea from April 6, 2017 to April 12, 2017 in a Luxury Overwater Villa and loved every moment!

Voted best luxury resort in a scenic location in 2015, the Sofitel la Ora was just wonderful. What has it got going for it? 1/ The best location: right on the beautiful Temae Beach ... the nicest beach on Moorea. 2/ Luxury air-conditioned bungalows: even nicer than the Intercontinental on Bora Bora. Note though, the bungalows to the left of...

Great place to stay. Wonderfull staff, great accommodation and superb snorkeling. Worth paying for the over the water bungalows as they have their window in the floor to the sea. Only a shame they do not have a gym and they must get other English TV channels beyond CNN. You can't listen to war talk while on holiday. Even if...

“We stayed in overwater bungalow #105; ideal because it was facing out into the lagoon but was closer to the main lobby and breakfast area.”
