As the saying goes, the only constant in our world is change – okay, that along with death and taxes. And even in the remote South Pacific where it appears time stands still, change still takes place. Resorts change, staff change, rooms are renovated and occasionally new rooms are built. But as your Tahiti Expert I am here to keep up to date with any of the changes taking place in the islands so we can plan the best Tahiti vacation for you with no unexpected surprises!
Today I am writing this quick blog post to let you know the Moorea Pearl Resort and Spa is changing their name to the Manava Beach Resort and Spa as of July 01 2016. If you are booked or planning on going, don’t worry – there are no changes at the resort. The management, staff, rooms, entertainment etc are all the same. It is purely just a change of name.
Behind the scenes it has to do with South Pacific Management who manage a variety of resorts in the islands. Their contracts are changing with some of the Pearl resorts but they are keeping both the Manava Beach Resort and Spa Moorea as well as the Manava Beach Resort Tahiti and aligning the branding of the two.
In Tahitian the word, ‘Manava’ means a ‘warm welcome’ which is what they would like to extend to you. A key feature I love about The Manava Beach Resort Moorea is the location. It is the only resort where you can walk into a local village that has a few shops, a bank and a few restaurants. The resort has recently redone their pool area and offer a variety of rooms from standard garden rooms to Overwater Bungalows at a variety of price points to match any budget.
