This Hotel pretty much has everything you could want in a hotel. Great rooms, great views and really good food. It's not inexpensive but is not through the roof, pricey but worth every penny, especially for the views. I was there when a storm came through and the lightning in the sky was spectacular. They have great room service if you feel like staying in and kicking back while they deliver a great lunch or dinner. To visit Bora Bora is only a five minute boat ride with 2 rental car services there when you arrive making transportation around the island very easy. I do recommend Bloody Marys restaurant and bar on the island and you'd be surprised at all the celebrities who've eaten there. Back at the Hotel they try they're best to cater to whatever you may want to do or may need. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Bora Bora, this is the place to stay without question!
The location, the hours of the restaurant, the welcome juice and complimentary cocktail, the views, the coral right in the lagoon, the ease of renting a bicycle or moped, the friendliness of staff. the beach, the quietness of the hotel The slowness of staff to respond to requests, the minimum amount of options for eating/transportation on Bora Bora, the process to just get internet access, the lack of a separate concierge from the front desk staff, the roosters that roamed the property, the appearance of the main dining area, the late shuttle to pick us up from the airport, the hidden fee for the airport shuttle
Staff was helpful Wifi did not work Was on a hill side Bugs in room
After staying at Le Moana for a week, I can say it would be my choice if I return to Bora Bora. When you stay in Bora Bora you have the option of staying on the island itself or on a motu (smaller island) that rings the outside of the lagoon. Le Moana is on the island itself, on the southernmost point called Matira. Because of that, we were easily able to move about the island as we wished. The Martira Point area has many restaurants, snacks (their version of a lunch-only fast food place), and a roulotte (supper-only like fast food). The point is also home to the only public beach on the island, and the sunsets from Matira Beach are lovely. If you chose instead to stay on a motu hotel, you will be at the mercy of the free shuttles that move back and forth to the mainland, and then you will most likely need a taxi to get you the rest of the way. As for the resort itself, we took advantage of the free kayaks, snorkels, and body boards. The lagoon is lovely and easy to paddle around. You can snorkel among lovely fish under the bungalows and also near the Sofitel motu east of the Le Moana. We rented bicycles from the resort. They were not in the best shape, but worked just fine. We rode bikes around the entire island and it took 3 1/2 hours or so. There is only one large hill since the road circles around at sea level so it was pretty easy. We started at the hotel around 8:30 in the morning and worked counter-clockwise, hitting Vaitape for lunch around 11:00. We also renter a scooter from the Roulotte Matira people where local point drive hit the circle road. We were very pleased. The scooter was in good condition, we did not have to refill the gas, and they gave us a cell phone and their number to call if we had problems! The concierges were friendly and helpful. They were great with dinner reservations each night. Most of the island's restaurants send a taxi to pick you up and take you back home. Sometimes you are the only rider, but more often, they will have a se...
I stayed here for my birthday on April 8 2010. Excellent Customer service and professionalism upon greeting. Breathtaking boat ride. They brought me a birthday cake on the day of my arrival. Stayed in an overwater bungalow! Crytsal clear water! Breakfast delivered by canoe. Could go for a swim right off my deck. Beauty and memories to last a lifetime. I fell in love with Tahiti...and I have already booked a trio back again in the fall!
