Formerly known as the Sheraton Moorea Lagoon Resort, this Hilton property is an excellent choice for an overwater bungalow vacation in the South Pacific. The location on the north shore of Moorea is scenic plus very convenient for those who want to visit other shops and restaurants on the island.
While it's not as luxurious as some of the 5-star resorts in nearby Bora Bora, the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa offers great value along with an extremely long list of features and free activities. The overwater bungalows are larger than most in this area, and the service is friendly and professional, as you'd expect at a Hilton resort.
The Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa is located on the northern shore of the island of Moorea, only 10 miles from Tahiti, in the South Pacific.
The Hilton Moorea offers four types of overwater bungalows, each is the same size and configuration except for the location/views and beds.
Overwater bungalows: 54
Beds: One kingsize or two twin beds
Area: 667 sq ft (62 m²)
Entertainment system: 37″ Satellite TV
Room service: Available
The Moorea Lagoon Spa is on-site, and features a wide range of services including massages, beauty treatments, and wedding packages.
To reach the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa you’ll need to fly to Tahiti and then take either a 20-minute flight to the airport on Moorea, or a 1-hour ferry from the dock in Pape’ete. Once on Moorea you’ll be met by hotel staff for private ground transportation to the hotel.
Reviews for the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa are quite solid considering this is not among the most expensive overwater bungalow resorts in the South Pacific. Previous guests are impressed by the large and well appointed rooms. Some mention that the food in the restaurants at the resort can get a bit monotonous, but others point out that you can call many nearby restaurants for a free pickup and return, so this doesn’t seem like much of an issue.
A number of past guests also point out that the non-overwater rooms are also quite nice and can offer even more privacy, so it might be worth considering spending some time in both types of rooms to moderate cost if that’s an issue. Some guests also note that check in was fast and easy, a big plus for those who want to start their vacation right away.
