We loved our stay here. We opted for the private villa over the overwater bungalow and were happy we did so. It is like a house with a fenced-in yard and mini pool. The place is beautiful and the staff is very nice and accommodating. Close to two dive shops (we used Yaka). Overall a fantastic experience. Only drawback is the food is just ok, except for the lunch chow mein which was great.

Paradise on Earth!!!!
This is our 4th time at Kia Ora and it just keeps getting better and better!. Snorkeling off the back porch of our overwater bungalow...free fabulous breakfast buffet with eggs cooked to order....Fine French Cuisine for dinner. Staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. Even the WiFi was excellent and could stream movies without lag. This is truly a very special place to get away from it all and just swim in a natural tropical aquarium. The trip was a birthday present to ourselves and it was the BEST TRIP EVER

Beautiful property with exceptional staff. Limited dining options nearby though, but that's somewhat expected given the island size. Restaurant food was very good. Bar prices very high.

Great Location & Nice Overall But Be Warned
This was our 2nd island visit during our 3 island trip; we stayed for 3 nights starting 12/15/21. Booked a Villa with pool, #20. Very dated from the 70's, ant infestation in bathroom and on bed. Then upgraded to a overwater bungalow, #47 (which we enjoyed overall). But then a adjacent local island resident started burning trash; as the bungalow is not sealed with glass, only wood slats, the room and porch were not habitable. Fortunately, they stopped at sunset, but started again mid-morning forcing us to go to the the beach area by the restaurant. Management appeared powerless to help. In general, this place was a letdown, particularly having just come from the Pearl Taha'a resort which had excellent customer service and hospitality most importantly. The management and staff attitude was lacking. The clincher was the general manager, Gerard. This sounds crazy, but we accidentally discovered our room key opens bungalow #46; we were in a hurry to grab something and accidentally went to the wrong one and went inside! Thankfully, no one was there. The doors are not as clearly marked as they could be, only on the wall leading up the ramp. Gerard seemed indifferent to our security concerns and suggested it has been this way for 10-11 years, blamed the locksmith, tried to teach us how a lock works (seriously!), then walked away from us as he had a meeting in the restaurant. Turns out, he had a romantic date. At check out, we were told he didn't want to speak to us.

Paradise perfected!!
AMAZING!!! Our villa was gorgeous! Service was top notch from housekeeping to restaurant staff. The hotel grounds are the definition of paradise. Don’t miss the Blue Lagoon excursion and diving if you’re into that sort of thing. Food was fantastic, happy hour, room service, all perfection. Can’t wait to return someday soon!

Very good location in Rangiroa. This hotel offered everything we needed, and helped setting up excursions so our stay was packed in discoveries. There is not much choice for food but both the lounge area and the main restaurant have a good range of options. Would need a little bit of maintenance but it’s just cosmetics, everything was available.
