Highest rated Moorea Over Water Bungalow at US$544 per night – 25% off
It seems that bookings must be light this summer in the South Pacific because we are seeing some really wonderful bargains even during the high season. This week the best deal is actually at the highest-rated of all Moorea resorts, the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa.
They are currently offering their standard Over Water Bungalow at US$544 per night, which is almost $200 less than the prices we saw recently for the same thing. This is for the July and August period which normally marks the peak season in Moorea and Bora Bora, so this is looking like a great year for luxury bargain hunters.
An overwater bungalow at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa for US$544 per night for two adults. This rate includes a 25% discount off the normal advertised rate this time of year.
The rate is available through our booking partner, Hotels.com, and is available for selected dates all summer, with no minimum stay requirement to get the discount. A Panoramic Over Water Bungalow (same room with the best views at the resort) goes for only US$604 per night.
The best resort on the most beautiful island
While some say that Bora Bora is the most beautiful island in the South Pacific, many people agree that Moorea actually deserves that title, and the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort is the best hotel on the island. The overwater bungalows are larger than most in the region, and they are decked out with luxurious amenities, including the classic glass floor section where you can observe the sea life just below your bungalow.
The rooms of course all come with a private deck with steps leading down into the turqoise lagoon below, but they also come with a flatscreen satellite TV, bathrobes and slippers, a minibar, down bedding, and coffee & tea making facilities among other things.
A luxury spa plus a long list of activities
The Moorea Lagoon Spa is easily one of the best in all of the South Pacific, so this is an ideal resort for honeymoon couples or anyone else just wanting pampering and relaxation. There are also two different restaurants and two other bars, so you'll have plenty of choices of where to go during the day or into the evenings.
Obviously they offer excellent scuba diving and snorkeling, and there's also a sandy beach, a swimming pool, a tennis court, windsurfing, sailing, a fitness room, fishing, Jet Skis, bicycle rental, and on and on. Romantic couples might be tempted to just relax in their room or by the pool, but those wanting to stay active (at least during the day) will have endless choices.
Another advantage of Moorea over Bora Bora is that you can call a variety of nearby restaurants and they will come and pick you up and drop you back off for free, so you'll have over a dozen fine places from which to choose if you are the type to explore the local cuisine.
