‘Polynesian Paradise, Sparkling Lagoon Setting’
A dynamic paradise of swaying palm trees, Polynesian overwater bungalows, sandy beaches and a vivid blue lagoon, Kia Ora Resort & Spa lies on the stunning lagoon of Rangiroa Island in the French Polynesia, fittingly called Rangiroa Blue. A small population of just 2,700 residents, the island offers a relaxed lifestyle teamed with warm hospitality, meaning you can be sure your stay here will be unforgettable. 60 guest rooms are all independent cottages, either secluded with white walls and offering private gardens, perched over the glittering waters, or nestled on the sandy beachfront. Dining is a culinary delight of French and local Polynesian cuisine, accompanied by the speciality Rangiroa Wine, the only wine to be created on an atoll in the world. Days may be spent spotting the wild dolphins jumping out of the ocean and lagoon intersection, visiting local villages or enjoying a soothing spa treatment at Poekura Spa.
