A boutique hotel featuring 28 overwater bungalows in addition to 66 garden and beach rooms and suites, the Manava Beach Resort and Spa Moorea (formally known as the Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa) is perfectly situated on a gorgeous and convenient corner of Moorea Island.
Unlike many other hotels in the South Pacific, this resort heavily incorporates the Polynesian surroundings rather than trying to seem more like a European spa. As a result, the place has more of a “paradise” feeling than most other overwater bungalow resorts in the region.
The reviews for the Manava Beach Resort and Spa Moorea are almost all extremely positive, with most of them using the word “paradise” somewhere in the title. Considering this is far from the most expensive resort in Moorea, that’s an excellent sign. The service is regarded to be excellent and the location is convenient since it’s near other restaurants and activities, which isn’t true of some of the more remote resorts.
If you’re traveling with kids, the reviews will definitely play in your favor as many parents state that they were able to take advantage of the ‘kids eat free’ special and the large pool.
