Why Stay At Legends Resort®
Tucked away on the northwest corner of Moorea in French Polynesia, Legends Resort villas are less your typical over-the-lagoon-style Tahitian suites and more like vacation rentals scattered on a hillside. Staying here is like owning your own Polynesian home by the sea.
Opened in 2008, Legends Moorea's 46 villas sometimes feel like a tropical housing development, but they're actually some of the roomiest private accommodations in French Polynesia. With 1,290 sprawling square feet, the smallest villa is a two-bedroom structure. Whereas many Tahitian resorts are aimed squarely at honeymooners, Legends makes more sense for families or long-stay vacationers who will appreciate the fully-equipped modern kitchens. The place can feel isolated and quiet, and you'll need to rent a car, scooter, or bike to get anywhere off the property. But thriving nature is everywhere you turn, with exotic birds, geckos, and bugs eager to seek refuge in your luxe open-air bungalow—so be sure to close up at night. Interiors are done in tasteful wood and rattan, accented by framed Polynesian art, plus a private Jacuzzi sundeck with chaise lounges will keep you nice and tanned your entire stay.
Be sure to rent a car if you expect to leave the premises. While there is a scheduled shuttle service to the nearby beach, there is not much within walking distance.
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
