The hotels in Rangiroa are mainly located on two motus in the northwest of the atoll. They are not so much hotels as family-run operations where human contact is essential. Less than an hour’s flight from Tahiti, Rangiroa has the image of a destination at the end of the world. As such, your hosts will welcome you with respect and will be honored to show you around their island. Depending on where your accommodation is located, you will be in the heart of the village or close to nature. Make your choice with our selection of the best hotels and guesthouses in Rangiroa.

Luxury Hotels in Rangiroa?

Hotel Kia Ora Resort is the only 4-star hotel in Rangiroa. It presents itself as a charming destination and offers a superior service. The site is beautifully located facing the lagoon and in the heart of a coconut grove. Mainly, we retain the gourmet quality of the catering and the very pleasant animations including the famous Polynesian evenings.

Regarding the accommodation, opinions are divided. In general, the quality of the accommodation is much better than most of the lodgings offered by guesthouses in Rangiroa. However, it only partially meets the expectations of visitors and does not match that of similar establishments in Bora Bora or Tikehau.

For this reason, we advise you to choose a more modest accommodation, but one that you will be completely satisfied with. However, there is nothing to stop you from having a drink at the Kia Ora Resort bar one evening.
