The Kia Ora Resort & Spa is an idyllic island paradise.

Situated on Rangiroa Island, the resort is in a wonderfully remote location with spectacular views and a turquoise blue lagoon as far as the eye can see.

Rangiroa Island is located in the Tuamotu Archipelago, 340km North East of Tahiti and is known for the quality of diving in and around Tiputa Pass.

The Kia Ora Resort & Spa enjoys a fabulous location next to the pass and surrounded by a coconut plantation. The well appointed accommodations are dotted around the gardens, on the beach and overwater and blend in beautifully with the environment. 

There are plenty of activities here to keep you entertained, but the jewel in the crown has to be the excellent access to top quality scuba sites.
