Sofitel Moorea Beach Resort is a large resort on the quiet north east coast of Moorea close to the airport. Set on a sweeping beach with adequately deep lagoon, backed by steep mountains and with a beautiful outlook facing Tahiti Island. There are two restaurants, one in landscaped gardens overlooking a lilly-filled pond, the other directly over the waters edge.

Hotel Amenities

The Garden Bungalows are all well spaced apart and set in a large landscaped coconut filled lawn area, either side of the main restaurants and reception. In front are the ocean bungalows, of identical interior but with ocean views, followed by the beach bungalows right on the beach.

Overwater bungalows extend from the main restaurant into the deep lagoon and offer stunning views along the coast of Moorea and also out towards the silhouette of Tahiti on the horizon.
