Where laid back meets luxury…
Here Moana is a one-bedroom, private Bora Bora bungalow fit for its exceptional surroundings. Warm, wood-wrapped interiors with a gourmet kitchen. Commissioned local art. Extras like bicycles, snorkeling gear, washer and dryer—even a Renault rental car. Huge terrace with Technicolor lagoon and bay views, perched high on a hillside above Faanui. Kick off your shoes and get comfortable. From $395 a night.
Our design goal for Here Moana: thoughtful and sleek—not stuffy. The focal point is an intuitive chef’s kitchen with Miele appliances and Silestone counters (and, of course, that view). But each room has gems of its own, from custom built-ins to tech extras to hand-painted screens commissioned from a Tahitian artist.
We provide everything and the kitchen sink. Adventurous travelers will appreciate the pair of bicycles with helmets, two kayaks, and two complete sets of snorkeling gear. Tour around the motu on a zippy Renault for a much lower daily fee than car rental companies charge in Vaitape. See more here.
Overwater bungalows are wonderful, but for Here Moana, we chose a hillside spot instead. We love the sweeping view of the bay and lagoon from the terrace, which is perfect for watching the changing moods of sea and sky—no matter the weather. It’s more private up here, too; yet, the nearby lagoon is easily accessible for a day by the water.
