SarahDanni TripAdvisor review

This hotel stay was amazing. The room was immaculate. Loved the local products in the bathroom and the free mini bar. Each morning we went out to snorkel and when we came back the room was once again immaculate. And the bed was insanely comfortable. We had a bungalow one row back from the beach, not at OTW. The snorkeling right in front of the resort is epic. There are huge reefs before, under and after the OTW's. Breakfast was outstanding. A wonderful array of fresh fruit, savory and sweets. It didn't vary much, but there was so much to choose from, so that was ok. My only complaint was how slow dinner service was. The servers are working SO hard, and are SO wonderful. But it took hours, even if we ordered right when we arrived. Our last two nights we did room service, and it was well worth the nominal fee. The food was delightful. And I'd definitely recommend doing the half board. Everyone working here was so kind, and friendly. The grounds are immaculate. The view is ridiculous. Loved seeing a blanket of stars at night. And it's quiet. It's a tropical paradise. I honestly cannot wait to go back to Moorea, what a special place and the Sofitel is wonderful.

Heavenly location, best hotel stay , ever!

Before booking our one week stay at the Kia Ora Sofitel in Moorea, I read the most recent reviews on trip advisor and came across the usual grouchy reviews (“service was slow, waiter ignored me”), to the silly (“rooms need updating” … seriously?! Updating from what? original Polynesian exotic wood furniture in wood and thatch roofed bungalow to 2023 Polynesian exotic wood furniture wood and thatch roof bungalows ?!!! This is not Best Westen on Route 66!). I chose to ignore all that and take a chance … Boy am I happy I did ! First thing first : the check in process was fast (contrary to what was said in some reviews), starting with a warm greeting with lei and fruit juice. The garden bungalow was nice and spacious , blending in nicely with the garden . The furniture in matching style with the Polynesian architecture, was in perfect condition , the bathroom equipped with modern appliances, rain shower for those who like it, espresso machine in the room, complimentary coffee and minibar (water, Hinano beer, Perrier water etc). The beach and lagoon are absolutely beautiful ! Paradise on earth… the almost fluorescent turquoise water is the clearest you’ll ever see, and that includes Hawaii (I’ve been there too, so I can compare ). We brought our inflatable SUPs and could see (tropical multitudes including stingray, and even a placid black tip shark) as well from our standing viewpoint as if we were snorkeling (we did both and eventually preferred seeing things by looking down from the paddle board). So if you have an inflatable SUP, take it, it’s worth the hassle . The food is French , and GOOD ! The on-site gastronomic restaurant, the “K”, is absolutely worth the visit and the price . We had a wonderful 5 course dinner that was memorable for both the delicious cuisine and the impeccable and friendly service from the waiters (more on that later). Sure the food is pricy , but this is not Las Vegas : everything has to come from outside Tahiti and that adds a premium to all goods and that’s something that affects the locals too . If one keeps in mind that the service is included, that there is sales tax, then one realizes that prices are pretty much in line with elsewhere on comparable prime locations . Now a word about the staff (mostly Tahitians ) : They all exhibited a contagious “joie de vivre” (maybe I would too if I lived there instead of gloomy (right now) California), and seem to really care about keeping the guests happy. One can tell that their smile comes from their heart, not from the company’s training handbook. From check-in to check-out, they were all extremely nice , without exception. They know enough English to take care of English speaking guests as if they were French speaking (I can do both so I could compare). My iPhone took on water (note to Apple: the Apple SE second generation is NOT water resistant). I tried to buy some rice from the restaurant, and they gave me a bag for free . The next day, at breakfast, the greeter inquired about the status of my phone (the latter didn’t make it despite being surrounded by good jasmine rice) even though he was not there when I got the rice . The point is : the staff will make you feel special. The guy in charge of making the omelettes, and cook eggs to order is an artist of the spatula and a show on his own, and he’ll make your eggs just right . So… a big thank you to all the staff, and management. To my fellow travelers: GO FOR IT! You won’t regret the expense .

DJMHamilton TripAdvisor review

We stayed here for 4 nights in May. We had a luxury horizon over the water bungalow. The good news....The view from your deck is amazing. Dont miss sunrise over Tahiti!! Snorkeling off your deck is excellent!! The bed is very comfortable and the sitting area is spacious. Housekeeping was excellent and all staff were friendly and helpful. The bad news.....The shower needs to be gutted. The furniture in the sitting area needs to be replaced.

Dear DJMHamilton, We thank you so much for taking time to share with us your experience at the Sofitel Kia Ora Moorea Beach Resort. We are very delighted to read that you appreciate the location and the lagoon. Some renovation works are underway in our bungalows, and the furniture is one of them. We hope to welcome you again in our corner of paradise. With best regards, We will inform the technical of the evacuation problem to find an effective solution

We will be back! Great experience!

Wp66ray Couples - TripAdvisor review

The bungalow was clean and super comfortable, and the views were amazing. The water in the lagoon is crystal clear, perfect for watching from your deck, looking thru the window in the floor, or snorkeling. The food and entertainment was excellent, and all of the staff were friendly. The staff were quick to accommodate and sincerely wanted to make your stay the best possible. We especially want to thank the morning cook Heinz and the server Poerani. They knew our names, always smiled and were totally the best!!

Dear Wp66ray, What a magnificent share of experience ! Mauruuru as we say in Tahitian. We are very delighted that you had an excellent and unique stay with us. The hospitality and the Polynesian kindness are our strenght and what a beautiful reward to see that you have been touched by this. We will be very pleased to welcome you again in our little paradise. With warm regards,

Anniversary Trip of a lifetime
