The Manava Beach Resort & Spa - Moorea is built on the grounds of the first hotel built on the island, the Bali Hai. In 1961, three young Californians, inspired by Polynesia, created a mythical hotel. The “Bali Hai Boys,” as they were known, continued to build a hotel in Raiatea in 1966 where they invented the overwater bungalow. The Manava Beach Resort & Spa - Moorea features three stone tiki sculptures (mythical figures of Polynesia) that honor the rich Polynesian culture and traditions. The sculptures guard over the lobby area, the garden and the pool.
This boutique hotel is a perfect blend of luxury and serenity, ideal for couples, honeymooners, divers and families. The resort is decorated in traditional Polynesian style with 94 rooms and bungalows including overwater bungalows, beach bungalows and garden bungalows with private plunge pools as well as garden rooms & family rooms. Premium over water bungalows are positioned right above the reef drop, great for snorkeling. There is free wifi in-room and in public areas. As part of the resorts commitment to the protection of the environment they have developed a coral nursery called To'a Nui which spreads around the overwater bungalows
