Overflowing with irresistible charm and character, these luxe havens offer an endless array of plush amenities and personalized services to suite your every need and want.

Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa • Moorea, French Polynesia
Nestled between two bays on the heart-shaped island of Moorea, the five-star Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort & Spa makes guest feel at home with stylish contemporary Polynesian-style bungalows that boast beautiful views of the beach or gardens from private terraces. Amenities in the resort’s recently redone bungalows include 25-inch flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access, and claw-foot baths fitted into elegant marble bathrooms. Dining options at Hilton Moorea include a sumptuous breakfast buffet at the open-air Arii Vahine Restaurant, which turns into a romantic Polynesian bistro at night, with live Polynesian shows weekly. Lunch is served poolside at the more casual Rotui Bar & Grill. A guest favorite is a dinner of Brittany crepes at the hotel’s Toatea Restaurant & Bar, built over a natural aquarium on a wooden pontoon leading to thatched roof overwater bungalows. The beachfront spa uses French Polynesia’s famously beneficial monoi (coconut) oil -- infused with tropical flowers and elixirs -- and locally grown vanilla as the foundation of many of the treatments and massages, which are even offered under the sun on a terrace or under the Tahitian moonlight. Bridal services and Romance Ritual treatments for couples are also available. Should active pursuits call you, the resort offers many thrills including kayaking, snorkeling, jet skiing, a PADI Scuba Diving Center and an array of land and sea excursions.
