Le Moana Resort’s villas all encapsulate distinctive Polynesian vibe, including mother of pearl engraving and woven cloth by local artisans. Noa Noa restaurant, in a central building that opens to a patio and the beach, serves French-style cuisine. Vini Vini restaurant and bar is a more informal spot beside the pool, where happy hour is announced by someone blowing into a conch shell. The Deep Ocean Thalassotherapy Spa is a short boat ride away at Le Moana’s sister property. Treatments include Pacific Ocean water drawn from depths of over 2900 feet.
In the Area
Le Moana Resort is located at the most southerly point of the main island, known as Matira Point, considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Diving is one of the main activities, choose your base from either Bathys Diving Vaitape or Bathys Diving Motu. At 2,385 feet, Mount Otemanu is the highest point on the island. It’s not possible to climb because of its brittle volcanic rock, but neighboring Mount Pahia can be hiked instead. The nearby town of Vaitape is a good place to shop for black pearls. For more affordable jewelry, there’s also a crafts market.
How to Get There
We stayed in Le Moana Resort for 4 nights & it suited our wish for relaxed comfortable holiday perfectly. Our beach Bure was perfect & lovely to have beach & swimming outside our door. The staff were warm & welcoming & efficient.
The concierge was very helpful in organising out of resort activities and the 2 problems we had were dealt with fairly and promptly.
We enjoyed the outrigger canoe available for use.
A big advantage of this resort’s position is a west facing public beach just a few steps from the reception - great for sunsets & swimming when there is an easterly wind in the east facing resort.
It is also in walking distance of other restaurants & a local mini-market for food/drink supplies.
We stayed in the over water bungalows. It was magical and I was thrilled to have spent a week there. Great service and pleasant staff. I’d you’re looking for a slice of heaven and a place to escape the ordinary- you will find it here.
Loved my stay here. We had an over water bungalow. It was amazing. The waters here are increíble. The views breathtaking. I would definitely come back. The food was ok. Breakfast buffet was good and changed offerings daily.
