The charming Manava Beach Resort & Spa maintains a boutique hotel feel and exudes the warm, welcoming ambiance characteristic of French Polynesia. Located on the northeast coast, this resort is only ten minutes from the airport and fifteen minutes from the ferry dock, meaning it still delivers on convenience while supplying a feeling of seclusion. (formerly: The Moorea Pearl Beach Resort)

The resort offers a range of spacious garden rooms, beachfront suites and romantic overwater villas, creating an atmosphere where both couples and families can peacefully coexist. Each overwater bungalow provides a large sundeck with direct access to the lagoon for incredible snorkeling, while each garden bungalow features a backyard with private plunge pool. The resort is also home to the largest infinity pool on the island. Other guest amenities include a poolside bar and restaurant, dive center, and activities desk with a range of excursions available.

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Great place, good food and service. Traveled with a 8 year old girl and she loved it. Excellent ATV trip for an afternoon with Christopher and a day trip swimming with stingrays and sharks with Bbq lunch on the beach with a friendly stingrays for the kids to play with and hand feed. Great trip thanks to the hosts Stephan and Philip

Review:   We had just finished our vacation in Bora Bora, so riding on those expectations we booked a Premier Garden bungalow at Manava. Our hope was to get treated to even more royalty (assuming Moorea would be cheaper and more affordable as compared to Bora Bora), but the resort and the overall feel was not upto our expectations. The rooms could have been cleaner, the food at the restaurant better, and the general setup of the resort could have been less frugal. The people and staff were wonderful, its just when you compare with a "Bora Bora" or a "premium resort" experience, this just wasnt there. Also, their lagoon, albeit replete with fish, is pretty deep, so even though we didnt stay in the OW bungalows, these were nothing compared to what you get in Bora Bora or say an Intercontinental in Moorea.
