Why Stay At Legends Resort Moorea
Intimate private hillside residences embodying South Pacific island charm are scattered along a verdant knoll offering stunning water views from their lofty lookout point.
Tucked away in the northwestern corner of Moorea in French Polynesia, the Legend Resort's 46 villas are surrounded by tropical fruit trees and spectacular water views. Each offers expansive wiggle room structure plus private garden decks, Jacuzzis and fully equipped kitchens; and with almost 1300 sprawling square feet, the smallest villa is a two-bedroom structure. Multi-facetted wood accents and elegant rattan furniture are complemented by wall art depicting traditional Tahitian culture. Hidden away from crowds, Legends offers its guests picturesque South Pacific tranquility. For ultimate serenity, book a 2-hour Zen treatment at the spa. On-site La Villa des Sens delivers the culinary counterpart. The Chef uses locally caught fish and organic exotic tropical fruits and vegetables in its inventive fusion dishes like parrotfish filet with thyme and calamari or crispy risotto with chorizo.
If you feel like beach bumming, catch the complimentary shuttle boat and ferry over to nearby Motu Island, where guests have access to the resort's private beach.
Heading out for the day? Give Lagoon Café a call and have them outfit a picnic basket with a selection of market-fresh items for you.
Arrive at Moorea's Society Islands Airport (MOZ) which is approximately 12 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 20-25 minutes of travel time.PK 25 Haapiti, BP 1951, Moorea, Winward Islands, French Polynesia

Why We Love Moorea
A surreally stunning island in the shape of a heart (really, check out the map below). How could we not love that?
