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:   This place is wonderful! We've been here just over two weeks and I surely hope to return someday. Everyone here is very nice and I like it even more than the international chain hotels.

Review:   Loved my stay here. Stated in over water bungalow. The premium ones face the sea and prefect snorkeling right out side your door. Non premium bungalows face back to the resort but are still amazing. Access to water from your back door. The entire complex is well layed out everything is close together. Good food from the bar, but for meals check out the other local options, like the manuia grill over the road. Cheaper and bigger meals. The Staff here all spoke enough English to make our stay easy and pleasant. Cannot recommend enough.

Review:   Apparently, this place had our guide fired for not properly following protocol. The short story is he offered an excursion to a guest staying here without cutting in the hotel. According to protocol, you have to cut the hotel in for all guests staying here and use their excursion companies they recommend. This means those businesses give the hotel a cut of the excursion fee. What this also means to me is the guests staying here are not allowed to make reservations with other excursion businesses outside the hotel’s knowledge without causing someone local to lose their job. This is cut throat business practice and I would recommend staying somewhere else. The hotels already pull in a premium on this island and the local workers have a hard enough time making a living. This type of business practice makes it impossible for new companies to be competitive with the resorts without having dire consequences on the available options of those competing companies. Everyone should be able to make their own choices without having someone’s life drastically changed over something so trivial. Stay somewhere else and spread your tourism dollars around to those that are less cutthroat.

Review:   We stayed in a duplex room. Room and resort are very clean and basically was a studio room. Internet was always slow with 2 Mbps up and 1.5 Mbps down. Did basic job but that's what is expected at location like this. Shower head in room needed some overhaul but other than that it was good. Pool and view is awesome.
