Sofitel Moorea in a Nutshell
Sofitel Moorea la Ora Beach Resort in French Polynesia

A patch of Polynesian paradise.

Sofitel Moorea Beach Resort is set on a dazzling crescent of beachfront in breathtaking French Polynesia, a constellation of verdant islands in the South Pacific located between the equator and the Tropic of Capricorn.

The island of Moorea is a half-hour ferry ride from French Polynesia’s main island of Tahiti, which houses the international airport. Moorea’s stunning beaches are lined with tranquil tropical resorts featuring the South Pacific’s signature accommodations, overwater bungalows.

Of these dozen or so Moorea resorts, the French-run Sofitel is one of the most appealing. It is located only a few minutes’ drive from the ferry dock and another few from the island’s small airport, yet its patch of seashore is as quiet as a desert isle.

Sofitel Moorea’s premier digs—those overwater bungalows—are heavenly honeymoon hideaways. Its restaurants are excellent, its spa effective, its service adequate, and its beach, on a protected lagoon, is luscious.

Guest life at Sofitel Moorea is private. Couples tend to lounge in their bungalows, on their decks, and in the lagoon’s sapphire waters. While permitted at Sofitel Moorea, children are a rare sight.
