This resort is on the French Polynesian island of Moorea, which is known for its sandy beaches and volcanic mountains.

Here, you can enjoy the impressive natural beauty from a luxury beachfront villa or overwater bungalow. From your accommodation, you will be guaranteed a breath-taking view over the water with the shape of nearby Tahiti in the distance.
For breakfast, guests staying in the overwater bungalows can have their morning meal delivered by canoe. And in the evening, go for dinner on the beach, where a 4-course menu will be served to your private table. The dining options are exquisite – the chefs here are constantly reinventing the menu to give every guest a unique culinary experience.
The team takes pride in French Polynesian culture by celebrating it by inviting guests to a showcase of Polynesian culture, which begins with a cultural masterclass and ends with a traditional dance performance. As well as this, his resort offers an incredibly varied itinerary of excursions and experiences. Amongst the activities available are snorkeling, helicopter tours, and skydiving. Or, take the once in a lifetime chance to go whale watching.
