Manava Suite Resort Tahiti
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Punaauia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 September 2017

Stayed here for our final 2 nights in French Polynesia because we had a 4:45 AM airport pick up. The resort is only about 10 minutes from the airport in the opposite direction from Papeete. I believe the resort is more geared to business travelers than most places in the islands. They have a nice pool but little or no real lagoon beach; so it may not be the best choice for an extend beach vacation. Good restaurant and bar, although prices seem higher at these venues than most SPM properties. Rooms are great. Due to our short stay we opted for a basic room. The room includes a separate, completely equipped small kitchen, double sink bathroom, separate wc, 2 closets and large sleeping room. All rooms have either a balcony or patio. Larger suites have 2 levels and 2 balconies. Papeete is about 20 minutes with light traffic. Taxi would be about $23 US each way. The hotel does have a shuttle service to Papeete 4 or 5 times daily for $7 per person. There are a couple of snack shops within a few minutes walk with descent food at very reasonable prices. There is also a small market, very well stocked for its size, just a couple of minutes walk down the road. This was our 2nd stay here and both times the rooms were wonderfully quiet. We would definetly stay here again during a short Tahiti stopover. Staff is very efficient and helpful.

Room Tip: Best views are lagoon view rooms.

Great hotel, nice staff, really good breakfast!
Amazing infinity pool and an own mini-island around which you can snorkel and experience a bit of the sea life. The view was amazing and you see Moorea really well!!

The room was rather spacious and clean and it offered a kitchen with all amenities.

I really enjoyed my stay at Manava Resort. Papeete is not the most beautiful place in Polynesia so I was happy to just enjoy the hotel facilities during my stay in Tahiti. The infinity pool is really amazing and the full view of Moorea from there is breathtaking. I witnessed the most amazing sunset. I had a lagoon view room and I was impressed by the size of it. I had a full kitchen and lots of space and a great balcony where I could just enjoy the views from. The restaurant is very pricey but the food is top notch. The dessert made with homemade vanilla ice cream is a must. The only down point during my stay was Sunday where they must have some sort of day use special for locals, so the pool was really crowded, specially with kids with balls and toys, taking away the relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: Lagoon view

Our en suite room with balcony was on the first floor, overlooking the sea and the island of Moorea in the distance. The hotel's private beach with bar, deck chairs and umbrellas was right in front of our room. Not far for our daily swim in their pool, using towels provided by the hotel. Bus service not good, so we hitch-hiked into town! People very friendly. "Trucks" are 10 minutes walk away, where one can enjoy a reasonably priced tasty meal from 6pm onwards.

Room Tip: Best views are from bedroom on at least the 1st floor with a balcony facing the sea.

The resort itself is very nice, very welcoming staff and good English. Our garden view room was massive and also had a cheeky view of the ocean, the bed/shower is great quality. Nice clean resort with lots of seating options near the ocean to watch the sunset and enjoy a drink at their poolside bar. Only thing is that the food and drink at the restaurant is quite expensive and while the food is nice, you don't get much of it and wasn't really worth value for money.
