Expert Review

Located not far from both the ferry dock and the airport and set on one of Moorea’s best beaches, this sprawling resort (it’s on 35 acres) has a definite French flair – both in its updated boutique-chic décor and its client base. There are 114 bungalows in five categories, ranging from spacious luxury overwater bungalows with dramatically draped king-sized beds and rainforest showers (but no bathtubs) to cozier lagoon view bungalows set back from the beach. All have modern design elements such as bright color accents and plasma TVs. There are two restaurants: Pure serving international cuisine in a contemporary setting and K, for gourmet fare served in a dramatic sand-floored wooden structure that looks out onto the lagoon. The Vue bar also serves light snacks and cocktails. The resort’s small but lovely spa features breeze-cooled treatment rooms and overlooks the beach.
