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:   Absolutely amazing place. Great room service... with gifts! Good service and friendly all around, except at the bar. Felt like an imposter there a bit and they seemed to often get the bill wrong.

Review:   The most friendy, comfortable, most "Tahiti style" traditional resort without feeling "too resorty". Others we checked out on the island weren't as friendly and made you feel like you could be on any other resort or hotel in the world. At this one, you know you're in Mo'orea Tahiti. The area where the resort is located is also the friendliest and nicests and has more of the needed stores and shops that you'll utilize just within walking or biking distance. And their food is so much better than the other resorts!
