Part of the French-owned Sofitel chain, the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort is very popular with French guests. The location, which overlooks Tahiti while still being on the island of Moorea, offers privacy but is also close enough to other shops and restaurants that guests won't feel too isolated.

You'll note that this is one of the better value overwater resorts in the South Pacific, with prices and special offers that make it affordable to a large group of people. On-site, you'll also find beach and garden bungalows so, if you'd like, it's easy to divide your trip between the luxury of an overwater bungalow with a more affordable room if budget is of concern.

Getting there


The Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort gets mostly positive reviews from previous guests, with most believing that the rooms, beach and location are fantastic. However, there are a few that say the room service cold be upgraded a bit, though this doesn’t seem to be a big enough concern for most of the reviewers. The rest of the staff has been given very high marks.


The food at the two restaurants is well regarded, though some think the buffet restaurant doesn’t offer good value. Some reviewers also point out that you can call many nearby restaurants and arrange a free ride, so the dining options are greater than one might otherwise think.
