Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort by Sofitel

The Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort by Sofitel boasts an idyllic seaside setting along a beautiful white sand beach on the western coast of Tahiti. Located farther south from Papeete than any other hotel on the island, the resort is still only fifteen minutes away from the airport, offering both convenience and seclusion. Aside from the InterContinental Tahiti, this is the only hotel on the main island with overwater bungalows.

The rooms and suites at the Tahiti Ia Ora Beach Resort by Sofitel are a blend of contemporary French style with a tropical Polynesian touch. Each one has a private deck with incredible views of Tahiti's sister island, Moorea. Guest amenities include a swimming pool, tennis courts, a health club and an activities center with complimentary water sports equipment available. The resort also features a poolside bar and two gourmet restaurants, including the waterfront Le Carré, which provides one of the best resort dining experiences in French Polynesia.
