Hotel Kia Ora Resort and Spa

The Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa is located on the northern stretch of Rangiroa near the Tiputa Pass. Surrounded by a coconut plantation, the resort combines this convenient setting with a hidden seclusion. The architecture is elegant and refined, resting in perfect harmony with the natural environment. Situated on the lagoon side of the atoll, this is the only luxury option in Rangiroa with overwater bungalows.

The spacious and nicely appointed villas and bungalows at the Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa are positioned in the garden, on the beach, or over the lagoon. The beach suites have their own Jacuzzi, while the garden villas feature an enclosed yard with private plunge pool. The resort's shared infinity pool provides an added touch, blending seamlessly into the endless horizon. The main restaurant, Te Rairoa, serves the finest French cuisine in a sophisticated setting, while the adjacent Miki Miki Bar extends over the lagoon for an unforgettable cocktail hour on the water.

Our Insights

We love the bungalows at this resort. The Garden Villas are the perfect option if you enjoy spending your time outside—especially at night—since these spacious suites feature an outdoor bathtub and private plunge pool. Or, you can also unwind while sipping an evening cocktail at the beautiful overwater bar. The food at this resort is divine, and the service, impeccable.
