The boutique style Manava Suite Resort & Spa is the epitome of Polynesian style and tranquillity. This gem of a Polynesian resort nestles along a stretch of pristine sands between Cook's Bay and the Gulf of Moorea. Set on the site of the island’s first hotel (the Bali Hai), guests are assured of not only a warm welcome but onsite facilities and luxury guest accommodation that are second to none.
Do as little or as much as you wish at this island oasis. The beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to stay a while and take in the view. Indulge your body and soul in the Polynesian style spa or explore the wonders of the local marine life in the coral garden. Up the tempo with a game of table tennis, or take to the water on a paddleboard or outrigger canoe.
Evenings bring romantic strolls along the sands, sundowner cocktails on the terrace, and mouth-watering culinary experiences. The weekly Polynesian Night is an event not to be missed and a great opportunity to absorb authentic Tahitian culture, music and cuisine.
The Four-Star Manava Suite Resort & Spa presents 94 luxury guest rooms and bungalows. Tucked away in the tropical gardens or suspended on stilts over the lagoon, each room features an authentic Polynesian decor and all the modern comforts that enhance your stay. Why not upgrade to an Overwater Bungalow and benefit from direct access to the lagoon and coral reef?
