Deluxe 1 bedroom, waterfront Bungalow
Welcome to Robinson's Cove Villas, located along the lagoon in the heart of the splendid island of Moorea, 30 minutes away from Tahiti. Our lagoon-front bungalow is in an exceptional site, right by the lagoon in Opunohu bay (the most beautiful bay in all Polynesia according to yachtsmen!), surrounded by breathtaking peaks and by a luxurious nature famous for its untouched and original beauty. It is in this surrounding that historical films about Polynesia are regularly shot (Namely 'The Bounty' in 1984 with Mel Gibson, etc). The largest private yachts anchor frequently not far from our Villas, as 'Robinson's Cove' offers complete tranquility and an excellent shelter, it did for Captain James Cook who discovered the bay and was the first to moor there in 1777; What is most remarkable is that nothing has changed since that time!
Car: Car: Mini van TOYOTA (A/C, 7 seats) is available or FORD Sedan (A/C, 5 seats), under a rent and drive package. Please ask for conditions and details by email.
Snorkeling / Diving / Lagoon:: Snorkeling: Just in front of the bungalow, there is a private sandy area giving direct access to the lagoon via a natural rocky stairway. In the lagoon you are on a small underwater plateau where you can walk for about 20 meters (60 ft). Then there is a drop off 25 meters (80 ft) deep. This drop off, home of many sea species, lets you snorkel in full safety among the fish only a few dozen yards from the Villas. There are no big waves ion our beach, because we are protected in the bay, so this is excellent for snorkeling!
Diving: There are many scuba diving centers in Moorea, Alix our caretaker will help you. Moorea is famous for his diving spots.
Excursions on the Lagoon: Whether a simple ride to discover the lagoon or an encounter with whales and dolphins, or water skiing at sunset, many service providers can pick you up by boat directly at our Villas.
Power Boats: It is possible to rent small power boats with or without a license.
Activities with our partners:: Horseback Riding: There is a ranch not far (about 10 minutes by car) in the Opunohu Valley for memorable rides in spectacular scenery made of peaks and lagoons. 4x4 and Quad bike: For those who prefer the comfort of a motor vehicle, a discovery of the hidden paths and breathtaking peaks can be done in a Jeep or in Quad ATV motorcycle.
Hiking: On the mountainside or throughout the tropical jungle, there is nothing like hiking, but it is safer to hire a guide!
Marathon: Marathons, triathlons, etc. are regularly organized by the Te Moorea Sports Association.
Golf: The new Moorea Golf Course is 15 minutes drive away, near the airport. Spa : Several Spas are located in Moorea Island, including Helen'Spa, who created the first Tahitian Spa in 1999, ranked among the most beautiful spas in the world.
