We visited Sofitel Moorea in April 2017 for our honeymoon and we stayed in a premium overwater bungalow. It was incredibly luxurious and the view was spectacular. Definitely recommend visiting the K Restaurant on the Cabaret evening as this was fantastic value and a very memorable experience. The food was delicious and we really enjoyed the beach bar over sunset....

Spending the night in over-the-water bungalow #107 was my dream! The resort is absolutely fabulous! The room was great, bed super comfy, mini bar stocked, hot pot for coffee/tea, even a lighted clothes bar in the walk-in closet! Toiletries were great, only wish I would have had a walk-in shower, in lieu of tub/shower combo, but I could live with...

We spent 4 nights in Moorea to start our honeymoon. To get to the area, we flew from LAX to Papeete, Tahiti, then stayed overnight near the airport and took a ferry to Moorea in the morning.
