First Anniversary and NYE Celebration
We checked in on 12/28/20 and checked out on 1/8/21 and stayed in a horizon over the water bungalow for our entire stay. The room was well appointed and we enjoyed the decor. It was spacious enough for us to feel comfortable for our entire stay, and not crowded. There was ample closet and dresser space, and a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, and the A/C in the room worked well to keep it cool. The shower water pressure was good, and got to the right temperature. The outdoor space and our private dock area was very nice and had comfortable chairs and an excellent view of both the mountain and the ocean. There was coral right under our bungalow that we could view from the glass table in the living room, or swim right out to from our dock. Housekeeping did an excellent job cleaning the room everyday, and seemed to always know when we were gone to perform the cleaning. The continental breakfast that we purchased for the entirety of our trip was very much worth the price, and had a good, fresh selection. The hotel restaurant and bar, Vini Vini, was good traditional French cuisine. The staff paid very close attention to the details of our trip, and we didn't have any hiccups throughout our entire stay. They were very accommodating and even gave us a late checkout without even asking for it to accommodate our late flight out. The most notable time during our trip was the NYE dinner celebration - the hotel went to great efforts to make this a very special occasion. From traditional fire dancers, to excellent Polynesian dancers, singers, a huge well-appointed buffet - this evening was very special to us and will no doubt be our best NYE ever. Overall, this has been the best trip we have ever had, made possible by this hotel and their staff's wonderful service.
Amazing honeymoon in paradise
We had an amazing experience at Le Moana for our honeymoon. The location is gorgeous and we were very happy that we were on the main island due to it's central location to excursions and restaurants. The staff were exceptional, so welcoming and accommodating. The general manager personally greeted us each day and asked us how our stay was going. The concierge made booking our activities extremely easy. We arrived at the property around 9:30am and told that our room was ready for us, which was an unexpected but very much appreciated surprise. Our departure flight was in the evening on the day of checkout and the hotel provided us with a mid afternoon checkout without us even asking. We also enjoyed the free equipment rentals for snorkeling and kayaking. There are a lot of fish to see just snorkeling around the resort. The property and rooms are very clean and the bed is very comfortable. We absolutely loved our stay at Le Moana and highly recommend this resort to anyone visiting Bora Bora.
Highlight of 2020
With all my other vacations/trips cancelled in 2020, it was almost a dream too good to be true to actually be able to safely take a trip from Los Angeles to French Polynesia. My expectations were quite high, given the prices in Bora Bora (more than I have ever paid to stay anywhere in all my world travels), and it did not disappoint. First off, I should state this was a solo trip - I believe I may have only seen only 1 other solo traveler the 4 days I was there. That said, several of the staff learned my name the first day which made a big impression and helped me feel a little less alone on my trip. I also take Covid precautions VERY seriously and I found the staff were very good and consistent with mask wearing and cleaning. The property is beautiful and I was overjoyed with my room facing Mt. Otemanu, it is noted the pool was on the smaller side BUT when you have an entire shallow lagoon to enjoy, I didn't really even need a pool. I ate at the restaurant a few times, and enjoyed the food. Prices are to be expected - very high but that is Bora Bora. I am not a big breakfast eater so opted out of the breakfast. I did find if I went to the little market down the road by 8 AM they had a nice assortment of croissants and breads. One croissant and a nespresso I could buy from the front desk made me happy! There appeared to be a local restaurant called Roulette that normally had breakfast but they were closed - I am not sure if that is due to Covid. One big tip - if you have time, definitely book a massage at the sister resort Thalasso. The boat shuttle is then included and you can go to the pool and enjoy the facilities there. The pool and view there are absolutely stunning. I shortchanged myself only giving myself a couple hours, the Spa has a TON of beautiful places to sit and lounge too. In hindsight I wish I had spent the entire day instead of just a few hours. The massage faced down into a glass bottom so you could see fish below!! Lastly, as someone who likes to explore a little and also search for less expensive dining, I liked that the Le Moana was adjacent to a handful of local restaurants and a little market. It does appear that as of late Dec 2020, some of the spots were closed, but I hope for them and future visitors, they will be re-opened soon. Thank you for to the Le Moana for helping make the end of 2020 a very bright spot for me!
Perfect IHG Intercontinental Paradise
Awesome experience at the IHG Le Moana in Bora Bora. Property General Manager (Mme Levy) led by example: Property was clean, service was superb, staff were naturally friendly, courteous and always a pleasure to speak with. The breakfast team were always on the look out to ensure your day started off right. The front desk team were always ready to assist with any and every question. We arrived the hotel late due to “operational” events by Air Tahiti, however the concierge and team at Le Moana ensured we were able to select from a menu and our meals were in our rooms upon arrival. Awesome customer service. This was truly one of the best IHG Intercontinental property I have experienced. Bora Bora in itself is a beautiful place, however, my stay at this lovely property was the icing on the cake. PRO: Courteous, excellent rooms, great breakfast, great location in the island, awesome staff, awesome Général Manager, awesome and prompt airport pickup and transfer, great views, awesome stingray and fish sightings from room, cleanliness, best property thus far. CON: Absolutely none. Nothing to complain about. Truly amazing staff, management and property. Thank you for making my “half a century” celebration a memorable and most notable awesome experience.
Love, love, love this place. I just spent 10 days and was my 2nd time within 2 years. The management, staff, everything! Perfect. I highly recommend this perfect place to stay in BB. Starting to plan again, already!!
