Voted best luxury resort in a scenic location in 2015, the Sofitel la Ora was just wonderful. What has it got going for it? 1/ The best location: right on the beautiful Temae Beach ... the nicest beach on Moorea. 2/ Luxury air-conditioned bungalows: even nicer than the Intercontinental on Bora Bora. Note though, the bungalows to the left of...

We recently spent seven nights at the Sofitel. Prior to going We read a lot of reviews - a bit of a mixed bag so it was with some trepidation we went. Accommodation in the islands is expensive so we definately had expectations. In saying that we recognised we would be on an island and on island time . On...

Great place to stay. Wonderfull staff, great accommodation and superb snorkeling. Worth paying for the over the water bungalows as they have their window in the floor to the sea. Only a shame they do not have a gym and they must get other English TV channels beyond CNN. You can't listen to war talk while on holiday. Even if...

Overwater bungalow is the way to go. The rooms were great, offering a sun shaded porch area. I don't think the upgrade to a swim deck was worth it, you could just get in from your ladder area. Breakfast buffet was normal fare, but definitely could find something. they did a great job with my wife's gluten free dietary restrictions...

Beautiful overwater bungalows dramatic, mountain backdrop, views back to Papeete, clear warm water full of sea life. What more can you ask for? We also enjoyed the tour around the whole island organised through the water sports crew.

Let me start by saying that this hotel's snorkeling was the best ever! We began diving 30+ years ago and transitioned to snorkeling over the years. The overwater bungalow provided easy access to the water via a diagonally slanted ladder. The fish were varied and abundant. Remarkably the coral was healthy and undamaged by the tourist traffic from the hotel....

This was the ultimate beach resort. The over-water bungalows are simply stunning with the patios leading down into the best snorkeling on the island. There were beautiful fish at our bungalow all day, none which were afraid of humans. We saw an eel swim by one day and an octopus in a near by reef. The room and hotel grounds...

We spent 9 nights in this wonderful property. It was pure heaven. Everywhere we looked was a feast for the eyes. The landscaping was beyond beautiful. There are no hotel rooms on this property-everyone stays in a bungalow, meaning no shared walls and total privacy. The staff was helpful in every way. As just one example, we had a minor...
