Moorea 5-star water villas with private lagoon access for US$501 per night
You'll find several great luxury overwater resorts to choose from on the island of Moorea, making it one of the more popular overwater tropical escapes. Though they all offer rooms that are situated over the ocean or a lagoon, they are not all the same. Some pride themselves on offering a romantic atmosphere while others are suited for those with an adventurous side.
If you're looking for a mixture of both, then the Hilton Moorea Laggon Resort and Spa is just right for you. At this resort you'll find lots of great outdoor activities to join in on, a spa, several dining options, and private overwater rooms that impress with a private deck and steps that lead directly into the lagoon water below. You can get all this at a starting rate of US$501 per night for two people including breakfast.
A water villa at the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa for US$501 (taxes and fees included) per night for two people with breakfast included.
Great for vacationers seeking a luxury resort that doesn't require a super large budget, the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa is ideal for ocean lovers. With that said, this particular starting rate is for the month of March, which is found in the low season. During other portions of the year, the nightly rate is known for being a bit higher. This is something that you'll want to note when planning on what time of the year to visit the South Pacific in general as the price changes are not only for the island of Moorea, but Tahiti and Bora Bora as well.
Another thing to note is that some resorts include breakfast within their nightly rate. Luckily, this resort finds itself in that group and all guests will wake up in the morning to a lovely breakfast that will give you plenty of energy to begin your fun filled island day.
Sizable rooms with private entry into the lagoon
Measuring a total of 667 sq ft, the overwater rooms at this resort are considerably larger than most of the others nearby. This means that guests will find ample room to store their luggage, walk around, and make themselves at home. In addition to the room size, guests will also be impressed by the large amount of room amenities available. Firstly, because it can get both hot and humid in the South Pacific, guests will enjoy the room's air conditioner. Next guests will notice the large outdoor balcony that is made private with an outdoor wall. This balcony continues to amaze with large, easy to use stairs that lead directly into the water below. This way you can access the ocean for a quick swim or snorkel with ease.
Back inside your room you'll find a large bathroom hosting both a bathtub and a shower along with lots of little extras that include a bathrobe and bath slippers. You'll also find a coffee maker, mini bar, mini fridge, a telephone, a TV and access to daily internet. Perhaps the most interesting to guests however, is the glass floor cutout in the sitting area. This glass floor allows you the chance to view the underwater world without having to actually get into the water. It's great entertainment as you sip your morning coffee.
Outdoor activities for all skill levels
Though the rooms are enough in themselves, the rest of the resort is worth checking out as well. Not only will you find great snorkeling and scuba diving for lots of different skill levels, but a private beach as well. Land activities include tennis, pool and various sight seeing tours. If you want to take a swim but aren't in the mood for the ocean, you can always just relax at the resort pool as you enjoy a cold tropical drink.
Some guests don't like to quit their exercise program while vacationing and luckily the resort caters to that mindset with an on-site gym. Fishing enthusiasts will find deep sea fishing right up their alley. If you're looking to relax after a morning of fishing or snorkeling, you'll find the resort's spa very pleasant with massages, treatments and more.
