Sheraton Resort Moorea

I will be traveling in NZ and Australia for 2 weeks and on the way home planning to stop in Tahiti. Ive read the boards about the hotel but does anybody have knowledge of the spa in the hotel?????Is there one????. Trying to find a place to stop on the way home where we can unwind before going back to cold weather.

Hi fran,

Yes there is a new spa at the Sheraton on Moorea. Didn't personally use the facilities so cannot give an informed opinion but it all looked very nice. It's a beauiful resort in a lovely location with fabulous OWB"s (with all the ammenities) over a wonderful lagoon area. The service like many places in FP is somewhat inconsistent but we had no complaints during our stay. The food was fine but we tended to eat dinners at restaurants outside the resort as the food is generally better. You will definitely be able to unwind there, before returning home.

Thanks for your reply. What kind of ammenities did the bungalows have? When you went out to dinner how did you get to the restaurants, by cab? Does the hotel have a main building with guest rooms or are they all bungalows with different views. Any info on this hotel would be appreciated.

Hi again fran,

All the bungalows are spread out throughout the grounds and individually, over the water. There are garden views, beach bungalows and the ultimate are the OWB's. The ammenities we had in our OWB were plentiful. All the necessary toiletries, lots of towels, A/C, snorkeling gear, mini bar, iron and ironing board (really handy), bathtub and separate shower, satellite tv, radio and CD player, glass bottom table/floor to view fish from and a wonderful large balcony with 2 loungers, 2 chairs and tables. You dip in the water right off your balcony and the Sheraton has a beautiful lagoon area with lots of fish. Can't comment on what was in the beach and garden rooms. Our OWB was near the end of the pier with a fabulous sunset view and a view of the mountains and ocean. Just GREAT.

Re Dinner, most of the restaurants will pay for one way trip from their establishment and you pay the other, by cab It usually cost us around $10 US each time, which we didn't mind at all. You pay for the ride there. Had some very nice meals at the Te Hono iti and its got a good atmosphere as well. Hope this info helps.

LARZ , Have also been to Fiji but stayed off the main island for most of the trip at the Yasawa Resort. A much more secluded and intimate resort with only 16 beach bures. Great location, wonderful people at the resort, excellent food etc. It's all inclusive with the exception of some activities and drinks and also very pricey, but is worth it if the budget permits. In Nadi we stayed at the Sheraton which was also nice but nothing like the Yasawa.
