We're going to go ahead an dub this luxury yoga and holistic wellness retreat paradise on Earth. Located on the volcanically formed island of Moorea, turquoise waters shine brightly against the island's emerald green cliffs that stand boldly above the gorgeous lagoon. Ideal for nature lovers, the resort is nestled in a tranquil cove, with jagged volcanic peaks behind and the great expanse of the South Pacific in front. The beach is protected from the elements, the waters teem with sea life and the gardens bloom with more than 200 species of tropical plants and trees. Immerse yourself in twice-daily yoga at dawn and dusk, get pampered, relax with a book, taste delicious local meals, watch dreamy sunsets, hike, swim with sharks and rays, go whale watching or try skydiving! Know that you have the freedom to relax by the sea or join us on an adventure. Everything is optional, even the yoga.
Mo'orea is a South Pacific island, part of French Polynesia's Society Islands archipelago. High, sharp, inspiring green spires, crowned by clouds. Poetic threads of waterfalls tumble down fern-softened cliffs. Peaceful meadows flanked by pinnacles of emerald green will renew your belief in the majesty of nature, and Moorea’s bright blue lagoon will bring to life the South Seas idyll of your dreams. Pastel-painted houses, surrounded by gardens of hibiscus and birds of paradise, circle the island in a necklace of happy, simple villages that will elevate your senses and remind you that this is what life is all about.
