How to Get There
We had a garden bungalow which was lovely however, how you can call this a beach resort I do not know. The resort only has a small length of coastline and the over water bungalows are far too close to the beach, therefore most of the beach is unsuitable for relaxing in the sun. This also ruins the view from all but three of the beach bungalows. The gardens and restaurant in the resort are quite nice.
We stayed at this lovely place for a week for our pearl anniversary (without realising the connection to pearls Tahiti has, or that Mo’orea is a heart-shaped island). It couldn’t have been more perfect for us.
Mo’orea is everything you expect it to be: breathtakingly beautiful, peaceful, relaxing, laid-back with an easy going French culture. The Manava Beach was the perfect compliment to that: a beautiful hotel just nestled in the trees by the beach.
The service is excellent, it is spotlessly clean & it feels small & exclusive. We stayed in a garden pool bungalow which was spacious, clean, well-equipped with a small private garden & a plunge pool (which we didn’t use much to be honest). There are also beach bungalows, over-water bungalows & a two-storey building of hotel rooms, all built in a traditional, thatched roof style - no ugly high-rises here! If I went again, I reckon a beach bungalow would be nice - straight out onto a white sand beach & so peaceful.
There were 2 small beaches, & under the over-water bungalows, a coral nursery abundant with tropical fish & perfect for snorkelling. You could take paddle boards & kayaks out to the lagoon which we did first thing every day, before breakfast, to get the calmest water which was as clear as premium gin. We saw loads of colourful tropical fish, manta rays & even a small shark. Just magical.
Back at the hotel, there was plenty of choice for breakfast. There is a bar which serves a range of more snack type food all day, pizzas, burgers etc, & a restaurant for more formal dinners.
The small village is a short walk away & has a supermarket & a range of shops & cafes, & the hotel encouraged you to visit which we thought was excellent.
We took one excursion which was a half day ‘jeep’ safari, riding around in the back of a converted ute & we got to see some of the highlights of the island. This was organised at the hotel, but you paid extra for it. It was great fun even if we did get rained on! It was warm so we didn’t mind!
The whole organisation of this trip was excellent with all our transfers being on time & we were given all the information we needed. The boat ride from & to Tahiti can be very windy & a bit rock n’ roll - the bigger ferry is better. The only suggestion I would make is that it would be nice to have mugs in the rooms instead of dainty cups & saucers, but that really is a minor point. Couldn’t fault it. Would love to go back one day ...
I led a tour of 40 people and we stayed here for 5 nights. The consensus was this was a great place to stay for the various and many activities we were involved in. For open water swimmers, the water here was perfect for our activities.
Central location - Maharepa is the city centre of Moorea and the Manava is right here. Shopping, Restaurants, activities and places of interest are only meters away. The boats picked us up here for Whale and Sharks tours. It is only 10 minutes from the ferry terminal and only 20 minutes driving to the other pristine side of Moorea at Club Med beach and area.
Staff were very good, excellent service all around. The rooms came with American Breakfast - that is a massive meal at the start of the day which set us all up for the physical activities we were involved in on this visit.
The group loved the big open space around the pool that opens up t the open water for swimming. The water, again being mentioned is 30ft deep right off the over the water bungalows, it made swimming around here an excellent option, you can't see the bottom here. The lagoon is 200m away where you can see the bottom, the lagoon is wide and also deep toward the reef. The water is perfect. We swam a lot, the perfect spot for our activities.
We are staying here again.
