Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa
The Hotel Kia Ora Resort & Spa maintains its status as the premier luxury resort in the whole of the Tuamotu Archipelago. The Kia Ora’s home on the low lying atoll of Rangiroa, whose name means “immense sky,” boasts a near endless horizon, and otherwordly sunsets. Its unique land and seascapes provide a sense of being on the edge of the world gently suspended over an endless span of water. Bordered by a white sand beach and a magnificent turquoise lagoon, the Kia Ora is poised perfectly as a welcoming gateway to a true aquatic paradise, both serene and exotic. Rangiroa is a Mecca for scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts alike, making the Hotel Kia Ora the perfect selection for active adventure seekers, as well as those with a taste for the remote and tranquil.
Beautifully renovated in 2011, the resort enjoys a sense of seclusion being nestled in the haven of a shady coconut plantation. The resort's restaurant serves local and French fusion cuisine with fresh seafood, coconuts, tropical fruits, Tahitian vanilla, Rangiroa honey -- all the flavors of Tahiti. An overwater bar and infinity pool hover over the lagoon with perfect sunset vantage points, and a fully-appointed spa offers traditional Polynesian treatments. A must-have: locally produced Rangiroa Wine, the only wine in the world to be created on a a coral atoll.
